Bose is voluntarily recalling bass modules manufactured before 1 April 2006 that were sold with select Acoustimass, Lifestyle, and Companion home cinema systems. Under certain conditions, electrical components within the bass module may fail and cause a potential fire hazard.
To determine if your bass module is affected, follow the steps below. If your bass module is included in the recall, please stop using it and unplug it from the electrical socket immediately.
Unplug your bass module from the electrical socket. Turn your bass module so you can view the label. Find your product name and serial number on the label. The product name is located at the top of the label next to the Bose logo. The serial number is described as “SER. NO.” or “SERIAL NUMBER”. See examples below. Your label may look slightly different than these images.
The label is located on the bottom of your bass module. Make sure to take a picture or write down your product name and serial number for easy access when needed.
If your product name is “ACOUSTIMASS 6 III HOME ENT. SYSTEM” or “ACOUSTIMASS 15 II HOME ENT. SYSTEM”, go to Step 4 below to determine if your bass module is included in the recall. If your product name is something different, open the product list via the button below and match the product name from your label to the product list.
If the product list indicates that your bass module is included in the recall, please go to Step 5 below for instructions on how to return it
If your product name is “ACOUSTIMASS 6 III HOME ENT. SYSTEM” or “ACOUSTIMASS 15 II HOME ENT. SYSTEM”, look at the serial number on your bass module (you can find your serial number as shown above in “Step 2”).
- If digits 8 to 11 are between 2090 and 6091, your product is included in this recall. Please go to Step 5 below for instructions on how to return it.
- If digits 8 to 11 are not between 2090 and 6091, your product is not included in this recall.
