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.

Determining Age of Wave Radio



I own a Bose Wave Radio (an earlier model) that I purchased second-hand. I would like to determine when it was made. The model number is AWR1-1W, and the serial number is listed as [REMOVED BY MODERATOR]. There's also a second five-digit number located directly underneath the model number and to the right of the serial number: C9549. I own several Wave Radios (most of which I purchased brand new), but have been unable to find out when my particular radio was made. Any help would be appreciated!






Re: Determining Age of Wave Radio

Hello vd1995, 


Thanks for posting!


The Wave Radio v1 was sold between 1993 - 1994.


I hope this helps!
