Welcome to the Bose Community!
The AV18 media center would not be compatible with the Acoustimass 9!
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Thanks for the quick reply.
The bass on the AV18/PS28 111 is not as nice as my older Lifestyle 5 /accoustimas 9. My Lifestyle 5 receiver is toast and I'm trying to duplicate the sound with this newer PS system.
Is there a way to enhance this with added equipment? I've already adjusted bass settings.
There wouldn't be any way to add any other equipment to the system you have that could effect the bass response you are getting.
As you have already been and adjusted the bass level, have you also run AdaptIQ on the console? If not then this would definitely be worth doing to make sure you are getting the best out of the system. This can be done by following these steps:
I hope this helps, let me know!
Thanks again for the help. I did set up using ADAPTIQ. I need to accept this system will not have the bass as a 9 does. I'm guessing there must be a way to add an additional bass somehow.
Are there repair facilities near MN you can recommend for the Lifestyle 5 /Accoustimass 9?
