Why Is Your Bose Subwoofer Cutting Out

With the rising percentage of people getting stress due to work and other tasks, music became their go-to channel to release stress and tension.

It has become a source of entertainment for everyone and notably, it’s quite a satisfaction to hear sound or music from a channel such as a subwoofer.

Your Bose subwoofer works as a mood-setter. Imagine the gain you get from its high-level quality sound, it can totally mend your boring hour.

But technical glitches are ready to ruin the moment. It affects the listening experience by compelling you to just switch off the speakers.

That could be a moment-blocker, and everyone despises it.

So, to help you identify the possible reasons for the technical glitches on your subwoofers, we compile some of the most essential discussions to help you maintain that incredible listening experience.

Why does my Bose subwoofer cut in and out?

Poor connectivity between devices could be one reason why the subwoofer cuts out. It indicates an individual technical issue among the devices. Know that these are your possible areas of concern.

You may also want to check the compatibility of the devices. If it seems like they are not technically matched, consider finding alternatives to level up your listening experience.

Let’s examine details of these issues below:

a. Poor connection between the speaker and the device

Poor connection between the speaker and device can be linked to the failure of the two to perform their intended purpose, regardless of the bluetooth and auxiliary cord it’s connected to.

Try connecting the speaker to a device it’s not familiar to. Check if the speaker will connect or not.

If the speaker connects with another device, the possible problem may come from the device itself.

If the new device and the speaker failed to connect, then it’s most possible that the problem stems from the speaker itself.

You may also check the proximity of the speaker and the device. If you think distance affects the performance of the speaker, then relocate it in a space not too distant from the device.

Range also influences the performance of both the speaker and the device. So, it is advisable that you give an eye to this area.

If you are using an auxiliary cord, it is recommended that you try a new cord to see if the problem roots from the cord itself.

At some point, the auxiliary cord may fail to perform so it would be advisable to have a glance at this also.

b. Technical Glitches of the Device

It is easy to point a finger to the speaker when it malfunctions while it is connected to a separate device. In other words, it can be deemed the root cause of cutting out.

It may be true in some other cases, but it’s also important to look at how the device is performing. Either way, the speaker could be a potential culprit if it emanates a crack-like sound.

Check if the sound on the device is muted. It’s common knowledge that the speaker produces sound coming from the device ranging from low to a high volume.

If the device’s sound is turned off, expect the speaker to produce a zero sound.

To fix this issue is plain and simple, make sure the device sound is on so that the speaker will project the sound. Remember the volume of the device is the first line for the sound to travel to the speakers.

The sound of the speaker depends on the volume control of your device. If it’s low and quiet, the speaker will have to play in the same mode.

Another issue that you need to keep an eye on is internet connectivity. If for instance you are streaming on your device that is dependent on a solid internet connectivity, make sure your connection can cater the needed data.

Having a poor internet connection affects the quality of your listening experience. So make sure that your platform conforms to the technical capacity of your internet connectivity.

Another one that requires a slight concern is the battery device.

If your device plays in a low battery, chances are the sound gets interrupted. This means poor sound quality.

The solution is simple. Most often, the device gets charged when connected to a bluetooth device or an auxiliary cord.

When a device is connected to a power source, it helps in maintaining the performance of the device by preventing it from cutting out.

c. Technical Glitches with the speaker

If your speaker easily gets connected to your device at a fast speed or vice versa, it’s possible that a high issue could be pointed to the speaker itself.

One issue that you need to consider is when your device turns off while in use, then gets back to playing mode in a while.

Your speaker should play while in use for the whole time, unless the battery is drained or the device is turned off due to prolonged use.

Notice also if the blue light turns on, if not, it’s an indication of a low battery level of the speaker. This means you have to charge it until it gets full.

Also, check if the red lights are flashing. At this point, the speaker is telling you that it needs some updates.

If you have successfully updated the speaker but the problem still arises, you might have to reset the speaker.

Resetting your speaker may lose your device connection, it is much better to do so if you want to correct the issue of poor connection.

 d.The Device is distant from the bluetooth range

It’s a common issue for users to experience hassle when their speaker is located at a distance far from the bluetooth range.

Mobility is one convenience users would feel while using a bluetooth speaker. But they are not designed to perform in a large range of connectivity.

Bluetooth speakers allow you to move away from the device which obviously can’t be done when connected to the auxiliary cord. However, it’s a thing to know that bluetooth speakers won’t work if it’s too distant from the device.

It is helpful to check the manual before you purchase a bluetooth device.

This can help you know the specific range intended for the bluetooth speaker.

Knowing the range of the speaker helps you know where to place the device. At least, you don’t need to worry about connectivity issues.

As long as you place the speaker within the recommended bluetooth range, there’ll be no problem with having it cut out.
