Do you have a Bose speaker?
Does your Bose speaker keep cutting out?
If you have a Bose speaker and it keeps cutting out, this article can give you some answers.
Why Does My Bose Speaker Cut Out?
The Bose speaker cuts out because of either poor connectivity between devices or independent issues with each device. Issues with cutting out can arise from issues with the devices themselves, or how the devices are working or not working with one another.
To learn what those issues could be, keep reading and find out why your Bose speaker could be cutting out.
Poor Connection Between The Speaker and Device
Poor connections between the speaker and device can occur when the device itself is having a difficult time performing well and how it is supposed to, regardless of what Bluetooth device or auxiliary cord it’s connected to.
To test and see if this is the case, try and connect different devices that the speaker is unfamiliar with one at a time to see if they will connect or not.
If they do connect without any issue, then the poor connection is coming from the device rather than the speaker.
If they are not able to either recognize the new device or connect to the speaker, the issue is stemming from the speaker.
In either case, you will want to make sure that when you are using the speaker, you are keeping the device and the speaker in close proximity to each other.
This is so the connection isn’t interfered with due to range.
In the event that you are using an auxiliary cord to connect the device to the speaker, it would be wise to purchase a new auxiliary cord and see if that makes a difference.
Oftentimes, auxiliary cord failures can present themselves in the cutting out of sound from the device and speaker.
Issue with the Device
In the case of speakers connected to separate devices, it is easy to immediately blame the speaker for issues such as cutting out when listening to music.
It is true that sometimes this is the case, however there are also times when it is the device that causes an inconsistency in the speaker’s output.
The sound on the device may be muted, which could be a source of the problem.
Speakers are used to output sound from a device at a greater volume level.
The speaker has no sound to produce if the sound originating from the device being amplified is off.
In order to resolve this issue, you will need to ensure that the sound is turned on on your device.
A factor to consider is the volume of sound emanating from the device while connected.
There is a limit to how much a speaker can amplify the sound coming from your device if it is quiet and low.
Check your device’s volume settings if you wish to increase the sound even more.
Internet connectivity can also be an issue with devices.
You should ensure that your internet connection is strong if you are streaming content on your device that is dependent on a solid, quality internet connection.
Poor, weak internet connections may interfere with the streaming process since the platform is unable to stream without this connection.
The battery life of your device is also a concern, although it is less common.
Using a device with a low battery can impact both the device’s performance as well as any streaming the device is attempting.
This problem also has a simple solution.
There are many devices that can be charged while connected to a Bluetooth speaker or via an auxiliary cable.
It is unlikely that having the device plugged into a power source will affect the quality of sound, but it will prevent the device from cutting out due to a low battery.
The Speaker’s Issue
If your speaker is easily connected to your device, it is likely that the problem is with the speaker itself.
When the speaker turns off and then on while in use, this indicates that it may be the source of the problem.
If the speaker battery is not sufficiently charged or if it has been used for an extended period of time, it will remain on until you turn it off.
If the blue LED light does not illuminate when you turn on the speaker, this is an indication that the speaker’s battery is low and it needs to be recharged.
Your speaker’s light might also flash red if it is malfunctioning.
We are notifying you that your speaker needs to be updated.
You may wish to attempt a complete reset of your speaker if the issue persists after updating the speaker.
While you want to avoid resetting your speaker as a result of lost connections to devices, it could be worthwhile to have a more solid connection between your speaker and such devices.
There is no Bluetooth connection between the device and the device
Another simple, yet common cause for speaker cut-out complaints is placing the device beyond the range of the speaker itself.
Although Bluetooth speakers offer a certain amount of convenience in terms of mobility, they are not designed or intended to provide a wide range of connectivity.
In spite of the fact that Bluetooth speakers offer greater freedom of movement than an auxiliary cord would, there is still a limit as to how far a Bluetooth connection can remain stable.
It can be helpful to refer to the instructions manual when purchasing or receiving a Bluetooth speaker.
You will often learn the range that the speaker is intended to cover from this information.
If you know the range of the speaker, then you will be able to determine how far you can move your device from the speaker without affecting connectivity.
As long as your device remains within the recommended distance from the speaker, you shouldn’t have any problems with the speaker cutting out.
