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.

Hi keef82,

 

There isn't a way to set the 650 to play in stereo rather than 5 channel. If you play stereo audio to the system, it will only play the 2 channels but it will often play the same channels to the rear speakers to fill the room better.

 

I'll pass on your feedback about the ability to play in stereo only as a feature you would like to see added. I can't guarantee that it's a feature that could be added, but I will make sure the development team are aware that this is a feature you are interested in.

 

In the meantime, you could simulate what you can stop the rear speakers from playing by turning the volume of them all the way down. To control the volume of the rear speakers follow these steps:

  • On the remote control, press the MORE button to view the menu on the remote display
  • Scroll up or down to select AV Settings, then press the OK button
  • Select System AV Settings
  • Select Surround
  • Scroll left or right to select a setting
  • Wait 10 seconds for the menu to exit.

I hope this helps!
