Hello, 

I have one Lifestyle V20  and i need your advice because recently my subwoofer PS28 iii main board was totally compromised (burned)

looking to buy other suboowfer PS28 iii, i found the model PS48 iii, and i like it because it is more powerful.

please can you tell me if it will work on my Lifestyle V20 and if it has a more powerful sound?

Thank you in advance!!

Re: Bose Lifestyle V20 - PS 28 III not working

I too am the proud owner of the Bose V20 PS 28 III

my subwoofer's power supply needed to be replaced as the green light on the sub stopped coming on

I looked around eBay but you never know what your going to get, maybe we just buying someone's problem.  I contacted BOSE and they told me for I think 189us dollars they will fix my sub no matter what is wrong with it, and they pay shipping both ways, so find a good box to send it, if you still have your Bose box I tell you now they will not return your box. so is best to go to U-Haul they have a box that fits for like under 6.00$Cdn PLUS add on one year warranty, WOW... BOSE 

 

Now my subwoofer has been retuned , the power light does turn on, wooooowhooo  happy dance

But the power light is flashing amber, **bleep**

so I am here to ask what this flashing amber light means, why is is flashing.

som bo bo at bose told me iOh it needs a firmware update,  LOL

I  asked with a smile, well how am I going to do that,  this model of bose has no wifi, bluetooth, or ever a USB port and there is no way to hardwire it to my router, so how am I going to update my bose, sorry I kinda laughed at his suggestion.

Re: Bose Lifestyle V20 - PS 28 III not working

I sent in my system to Bose with the because there was no power

Bose replaced the power supply then shipped it back to me.

I was dancing with joy to have my system back

I connected everyting up

Oh NOOOOooooo  I was met with Counterblink error

I re-sent it back

I have my system back and Normal operation. The system is on and is processing digital information

Now I am having sound issues.  I have order brand new Bose Speaker Wires.

Lets hope this is the solution

I really REALLY love my BOSE

Note: is a shame the repair people do not verified the system to make all repair and return

a 100% working system.  That I had to send them my unit twice.
