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.

Cinemate GS Seris II popping as soon as is pluged in

My parents recently bought a Viso smart TV with the Bose Cinmate GS Series II home theater system. The TV work great and we believe everything has been hooked correctly. But, unfortunately when we plug the power cord into the outlet to give the system power, the unit begins to make a popping noise immediately. We have exhausted the troubling shooting steps that we know of ie... checking the connections, trying other input sources. Probably something small that we have over looked but if someone has come across this issue or have any remedies to solve this issue would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hey @WTX33, welcome to the Bose Community!


I am sorry to hear that your parents are experiencing this popping issue with their CineMate GS II system. It's great that you've been able to check the connections and trying different input sources.


On another thread, this issue was resolved by switching the audio format from Dolby Digital to PCM. Take a look HERE. I recommend giving this a try and letting us know if the issue is resolved.
