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

Hello Musiclover#1, 

 

Thank you for reaching back out to the Community today! Sorry to hear that you are having FM radio issues with your system. 

 

A great step for us to start with is performing a reset on the system, to do this please follow these steps below: 

  • Turn the system off
  • Unplug the music center power supply from the power outlet
  • Unplug the audio input cable from the music center
  • Unplug the Acoustimass module power cord from the power outlet
  • Unplug the audio input cable from the Acoustimass module. Wait 30 seconds
  • Reconnect the audio input cable to the Acoustimass module
  • Reconnect the audio input cable to the music center
  • Reconnect the Acoustimass module power cord
  • Reconnect the music center power supply
  • Retest the system

I'd also recommend stretching out the antenna as much as possible, then move it around to find the best area of reception.

 

We look forward to hearing back from you with the result of the steps above. 

Feel more. Do more. Be more.
