I have tried that multiple times. There seems to be no obvious inport in my CD 3000 Bose which is the large unit -- only input ports are " double" ports that don't correspond to the cable that fits in the IPad. I used the same cable recently on vacation with a Bose unit and it worked just fine. So, I am wondering, are my units " too old? ( 5-8 years old) or is something else going on. My main concern is the connection to the larger unit. Maybe the settings need to be different? Thanks.
The only ports on my large Bose unit - CD 3000 are double ports unless you can tell where a single port for the headphone cable would be located. I am away from my large Bose unit - in another apartment- but will be there on Friday and can give you more info.
On my acoustic wave small system, there are two separate ports - aux and headphone- I have the correct cable, put the cable in either port, turn the bose unit on " aux" and no music comes out. What the heck am I doing wrong?
I am not impressed with the quality of the answer. When I called Bose customer service this am they were able to answer my questionsand direct me to the solution.
