Hello AJ,

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

What issues are you having with the Bose model 8 audio?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

If the volume seems very low then try adjusting the volume on the source as well as on the speaker itself.

Let me know if that helps?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The sticker on the speaker states it max is 8 watts I'm guessing I bought something other than a "stereo quality speaker
Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

There are different speaker wattage power ratings available for different uses.

Is there anything else I can help you with today?

Is 8 really low I'm assuming it is can you bump up the power?
Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

Yes, 8 watts is quite low.

You can get speakers that are 80 watts, 100 watts, and much higher.

Technician: ITPeter, Engineer replied 2 years ago

You cannot bump up the power for that speaker, otherwise it will blow.
