Bose stereo 156

Hi all

A small issue with my stereo has arisen. The speakers will not work on the left side at intermittent times. Before I pull the stereo out, has anyone come accross this before? I'm hoping for just a loose wire.......

Mine doing the same, I suspect its in the unit as upping the volume restores it. Let us know how you get on.

I've not had 'left side' all together, the connections are a bit poor so when any of the speakers start to crackle a bit I just disconnect/reconnect the ports in the door - between the hinges? its a bit like the old fashioned printer cables? you know, lots of pins.

That fixes it for me but yours could be loose pin at the back of the radio if its the whole left side.

**sorry you have a bose, that has an amp in the boot doesnt it? maybe the connection is loose there? boot or shelf? find that and wiggle those cables a bit? I am not helping am I?! sorry.

I had similar - it was the connectors in the door as mo 156 says. Used electrical cleaner on them which helped. Still not perfect but better than it was! Increasing the volume seems to help too, so turn it up!!!!
