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.

Connecting smart speaker to SoundTouch Amplifier (SA-5) and Environmental Speakers (251)

I purchased a Bose SoundTouch Amplifier (SA-5) and a set of Bose Environmental Speakers (251). I would like to set up the speakers in my backyard.


I plan to purchase Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST Bluetooth and WiFi speaker that I will be leaving outside in my backyard. It has smart features, such as Amazon Alexa.


The main thing I want to achieve is to talk to the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST with something like, "Alexa, play [song]," and have the song play through the Bose Environmental Speakers (251).

How do I go about achieving that? Is there anything else I need other than the amplifier, speakers, and smart speaker? I am also open to using a different device than the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST to make this setup work.


I have never used an amplifier before and am not great with this kind of stuff. Thank you.
