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.

L1 Pro 8 - no sound from top column

Used my Bose l1 Pro 8 for the first time this weekend.  Coming out of my Rane mixer using XLR and going to each speaker to line 1. I noticed one of my speakers only had sound coming from the bass unit. I nearly had a heart attack but quickly decided to troubleshoot.  I powered the speaker off and back on and still nothing.  I then took the top column off and then reconnected it.  That seemed to do the trick even though I didn't notice that the column was not inserted correctly in the first place.  Anyone else have this issue?  The speaker worked fine the rest of the night but I'm more curious to see if this has happened to anyone else or do I just need to be extra careful making sure I have a nice tight fit when setting these up.

Hey Joe,

When using the L1 Pro systems, make sure that the speaker array is pushed into the Powerstand until you have a secure connection. 

Feel more. Do more. Be more.
