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.

No zipper problems but my sub bag won't close all the way.

Re: Speaker bag zippers keep breaking

I accidentally bent one of my zipper pull tabs, but none of them have broke yet. My bags now FINALLY close all the way. I've had the F1 system since December of 2018. I find that if you can get the zippers all the way closed and can leave them like that for a while, the bags will eventually stretch a little. Very frustrating at first but the bags are a breeze to put on now.

Hi Everyone,

Here's a video showing how Bose recommends you put the bag on an F1 Subwoofer.

This is how I do it too. No broken zippers at this end.  I hope this helps.

That's the way I do it. Perfect. Is there any other way really?

Wouldn't flipping it over like that loosen up the wires inside the cabinet over time, or is that old school thinking?

I literally cut the bottoms off of my bags...  I got tired of fighting them!
