Discoloration (or Yellowing) of White Color Bose Wave Unit

We really like the color white (Platinum White) of these Bose Wave systems (see last photo) but after some time the nice WHITE color turns into YELLOW. 

 

Do you know how to fix this issue on your existing unit? And how to avoid this from happening if we buy a new unit?

 

Thanks!

Re: Discoloration (or Yellowing) of White Color Bose Wave Unit

Hi AMP_Love_Bose,

 

Thanks for the question.  It's pretty difficult to prevent white plastics from yellowing; Keeping them away from direct heat sources and UV light is the best way to prevent yellowing.  There are many methods of restoring older plastics that you can research online.  I've never personally done it myself so I couldn't recommend one method over another.

 

Does anyone here have experience doing this?

 

Best,

Brandon - Bose Support

Thanks Brandon!

 

I have been doing my research online too but cannnot find any specific info on Bose Wave units.

 

Hopefully, someone here has done it and share his/her experience.

 

Kind Regards.
