Bose sound dock series 1 bluetooth adapter

I have an older sound dock series 1 and want to put bluetooth on.

Is there any particular bluetooth that I have to use since it doesn't work with a bluetooth that I use for my sound dock series 2.

Thank you

Thanks for your response Jayden. 

 

Do you mean the Dock part of the system? I would assume so as you can charge your Apple devices whilst they are docked on the system.

Hi Jayden,

 

With the original SoundDock, there was never a Bluetooth adapter made for it, so there isn't a particular one you would want to use. The adapters for newer systems like the series 2 one you have would not be compatible with the series 1, as you have found.

 

It may be possible to find a 3rd party Bluetooth adapter you could use with it, but I wouldn't be able to say for certain how well this would work, or if it would be possible to get up and running.

 

If any other members of the community have found a way to make the series 1 SoundDock work with Bluetooth, please do let us know! We'd love to hear how you did this!
