Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community. I am deeply sorry to hear that you are having this issue and would love to assist you further.
The amber LED means that the system is muted and the speakers are silent, this happens when there is no audio from the source. I would highly recommend that you perform a reset on the system via:
As well as connecting the companion to another USB port to ensure that this isn't causing any issues. Please also check to ensure that the volume is adjusted on both the PC and the Companion. The Volume can be adjusted on the Companion by turning the Volume Control Ring.
Please update me on the result of these steps.

Hello Rksundar. Thanks for your post. Sorry to hear about your difficulties with the speakers. The control pod for the Companion 5 cannot be bypassed directly, and is required for general control and use of the overall system. It's disappointing to hear that the steps outlined by Hector have not yet resolved your issue. Have you also tried reconnecting the cable that plugs directly between the control pod and the bass module for the system?
An orange status LED indicates that the system is muted. The only way to unmute this is by tapping the touchpad on the top of the pod. Should this button remain non-functioning, there may be a hardware fault. Should this be the case, please reach out to Bose product support in your region directly to explore service options for your speaker.
