Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • re-check the speaker wires to all the other cube speakers;
  • • use the RIGHT speaker jack of the Acoustimass module as a tester and try all the other speakers connecting to it one-at-a time;
  • • check the Audio Input cable between the LifeStyle Music Center and the Acoustimass module;
  • • of particular interest would be the pins of the plugs;
  • -ensure none are bent and all are present.

Additionally, consider a RESET. A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. If have not been done and should you venture to try: Please click / tap HERE.

May have to be done a number of times.

This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of an internal hardware concern; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose/cause other issues.
