connecting to my LS 650 speakers

I just got an LS 650 system and trying to set it up. 


I have been struggling to have the system set up. the Console is unable to connect with the rear Speakers and the Acoutimass.


Can you help?

Re: connecting to my LS 650 speakers

Hello Okey Exec, 


Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community Forums. 


I would love to help you to get your new system set up and running. I am sure you are going to love it. The steps below will help you to get the speakers connected, and should help with the Acoustimas module. 

  • Check for and install any available product updates. For more info, see Checking software version and Updating the software or firmware of your product.
  • Be sure the L and R switches are set properly on the wireless receivers. On each receiver, be sure the L/R (left/right) switch is set appropriately. One receiver must be set to Left and the other to Right; the receivers will not work if they are set the same. Toggle the switch of the receiver to be sure it is fully set to the L or R position.
  • Check the color of the status LED located on the front of each rear speaker receiver. If the LED is solid white, it is connected properly. If the LED shows another status, see Understanding LED status indicator light and information for more info.
  • Reset your system. A reset is used to correct occasional product issues. It is not something that a product should require repeatedly. For more info, see Resetting your product.
  • Disable any "channel bonding" or "40MHz mode" on the wireless router. The "channel bonding" mode available on 802.11n wireless routers allows for the use of more bandwidth than Bose system is able to filter out. Turning off this mode or selecting the 20Mhz mode will allow the system to work around the Wi-Fi channel in use by the router.
  • Try a connecting the rear speakers with wired connections. Wireless interference in your location could prevent the wireless receivers for the rear speakers from working properly—especially if the receivers or sources of interference cannot be positioned to avoid interference. In these cases, you can plug in your rear speaker cables to the system console.
