Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Lifestyle 18 Series I and AV20

Hi

 

Is it possible to use the AV20 head unit and my existing Acoustmass module from my Lifestyle 18 Series I? Are they compatible through the existing Soundlink cable or would they not work?

Hi smiffy2929,

 

Thanks for the post, and welcome to the community!

 

The AV20 and the speaker package from the LS18 I are not compatible.  They use a different audio input connection, and have incompatible software.

 

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

 

Best Regards,

Brandon - Community Support

Thanks for your prompty reply!

 

I suspected that was the case - was trying to solve a more simple problem. The remote control for my Bose Lifestle 18 (series I) has failed. It's clearly old but is a workhorse for us and has been problem free. I can't find anywhere to buy a replacement remote control - do you have any advice on where I can find one?

Hi again,

 

We have the remote available for sale direct from us!  As well, we offer repairs for Lifestyle remotes.  To take advantage of either, you'll need to contact your local support center via phone.  Select THIS link, choose your country, then scroll to the bottom of the page to "Contact Us"

 

Thanks,

Brandon
