Does anyone has a problem with the sound touch 10 I just received one from my daughters as a birthday present but if I unplugged turns off so this needs to be plugged at all times or is defective.?
[ Ruben G  Sep 01, 2019 ]
1 answer
I just find out this speaker doesn't have a battery so needs to be plugged all the time it's a big turn off for me since the speaker is advertised as wireless it should say WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth but not a true wireless
[ Ruben G  Sep 01, 2019 ]
Will this Bose wireless speaker work with my existing stereo receiver system?
[ Jeffry  Jun 13, 2019 ]
1 answer
Use can use it thru auxiliary plug, blue tooth, or WiFi with the sound touch app I would buy the sound touch adapter for your existing system and then it will work. As a team or individually with the app I have 4 separate ones plus an adapter on my sound bar

Not that i'm aware of.
[ Ryan  Mar 07, 2019 ]
can this speaker be controlled through Google mini?
[ jeff  Dec 17, 2018 ]
4 answers
Jeff, It can be controlled thru Amazon echo devices, but unfortunately I don't use google devices. I suggest calling Crutchfield technical support. Gary
[ Gary  Dec 19, 2018 ]
I have no direct knowledge to answer the question. If you can download the Bose Sound Touch app to the Google device you may be able to control it that way.
[ TIMOTHY C  Dec 17, 2018 ]
Unless something has been updated very recently, no.
[ Ryan  Dec 17, 2018 ]
If it's got Bluetooth then yes.
[ Lito  Dec 17, 2018 ]
Will this work with My ASUS Laptop and if so . Do I need a Special Sound Card, or Software ?
[ Rafael  May 24, 2017 ]
2 answers
Special software which you download for free and same for smart phone and tablet. No sound card required.
[ Charles  May 24, 2017 ]
If you can download the soundtouch app to your Asus it will work. I use it with my phone and tablet.
[ George  May 24, 2017 ]

[ John  Mar 12, 2017 ]

[ LANE  Jun 14, 2019 ]
With good wifi signal and enough units to cover the area the system will work.

how do i adjust the bass on my sound touch 10 with the remote? and i how do i replace my remote control that i have lost? please help.. because my speaker doesnt sound as clear as it should.
[ Cassie  Jan 01, 2017 ]
3 answers
You may adjust the bass through the Sountouch software.
[ Charles  May 24, 2017 ]
You can only adjust the bass from the app on your phone. Go to settings and following instructions. Replacement remotes are available at Bose but it won't help with the bass problem.
[ George  Jan 02, 2017 ]
By position of the speaker, distance from the back port. Down load app to your smartphone or tablet. I never use the remote.
[ Charles  Jan 02, 2017 ]
Does this product work with the TuneIn service?
[ CATHY  Nov 29, 2016 ]
3 answers
Yes, I use it.
[ Charles  Nov 29, 2016 ]
Yes it does. I use it daily for a station I otherwise can't get through conventional means!
[ Neil  Nov 29, 2016 ]
Yes if you can get tunein on your phone you can play it through the Bose wi fi through the phone
[ George  Nov 29, 2016 ]
Can two speakers be paired to produce left and right stereo sound?
[ Robert  Nov 09, 2019 ]
4 answers
Assuming the music is coming from an over the air source (Bluetooth or WiFi) I don't think a single speaker can play a single channel, therefore, would not be true stereo. However could produce individual channels if the source is hardwired to separate channels (cd player or something similar)
[ Tom  Nov 09, 2019 ]
Yes you can pair them together for a stereo effect. They sound really good that way.
[ Charlotte  Nov 09, 2019 ]
Some say yes and some say no. Supposedly there was a software update allowing stereo pairing. Bose hotline is very helpful. Give them a call. I do know that Black Friday price is only $99! Nice little speaker for that price
[ MICHAEL  Nov 09, 2019 ]
Yes they can. That is my set up.
[ Richard  Nov 09, 2019 ]
If I'm reading this correctly, I can simply feed an output of my sound system to the AUX IN on the SoundTouch10 and any additional SoundTouch speakers will be able to sync and playback that same signal over WiFi?
[ Kenneth  Apr 24, 2018 ]
1 answer
That's correct! In addition to wireless WiFi & Bluetooth connectivity, the SoundTouch 10 is fitted with a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input. The 3.5mm auxiliary input can then be distributed wirelessly to your other Bose SoundTouch speakers/components connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Hope that helps! :)
[ Larry  May 08, 2018 ]  Staff
Can the speaker be wall mounted?
[ Daniel  Mar 27, 2017 ]
4 answers
No, the way the speaker is constructed it cannot be wall mounted.
[ MARK  Mar 27, 2017 ]
It does not appear to be designed to wall mount. No bracket or screw holes in the back to hang it from. In addition, it has a open port in the back, which I assume you should not block against a wall.
[ JIM  Mar 27, 2017 ]
It could be on a small shelf. The AC power cord projects from the back and there is no hanger on the rear of the speaker.
[ Gregg  Mar 27, 2017 ]
Not easily. There is no slot for a mounting screw, and the power cord sticks straight out the back of the unit, so it will not lie flat against the wall. Also, the rear port needs to be an inch or two away from the wall for best bass response.
[ Michael  Mar 27, 2017 ]
Is this wireless Bose speaker compatible with a Bose Wave Music System IV?
[ Lou  May 16, 2016 ]
2 answers
No, the Sound Touch speaker is only compatible with systems which stream or broadcast wireless. The Bose Wave IV Music System requires the Bose® Bluetooth® music adapter.
[ Charles  May 18, 2016 ]
I have no clue. I don't own the Bose Wave Music System iV.
[ Scott  May 17, 2016 ]
Can this radio be played without wifi? This would be a gift for my 89 yr old mother with limited vision and no wifi.
[ Patty  May 07, 2016 ]
7 answers
Yes, but may not be the best with limited vision. If she uses or has a large tablet it would be better with the free download controller which is easier to view.
[ Charles  May 18, 2016 ]
This model does not have radio. However, you can play radio stations from your device but you would most likely need wifi to access those stations. Works great with blue tooth from ipad/iPhone etc. but obviously they must have the music downloaded onto them if you aren't accessing cloud services. Also, there is an auxiliary port on this speaker so it can be used with iPods or MP3 players with no internet. There is some initial (simple0 techy set-up but the presets would make it ideal for someone with limited vision. The sound is GREAT!
[ Joseph  May 08, 2016 ]
It is just a speaker, not a radio. You do not have to use the wireless Bluetooth connection but can instead connect it to other devices with a simple single rca cable.
[ Sharon  May 07, 2016 ]
I have this hooked up to wifi, but it is Bluetooth... I have played thru BT with my phone also...hope this helps!!
[ Robert  May 07, 2016 ]
no this really requires both WiFi and a smartphone or computer
[ Harry  May 07, 2016 ]
Yes with blue tooth devises
[ PATRICK  May 07, 2016 ]
Yes you can bluetooth
[ Brian  May 07, 2016 ]
What is the wireless range?
[ Rick  Oct 31, 2015 ]
1 answer
This model has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in. Bluetooth range is generally around 30-feet but Wi-Fi range would be determined by the strength of your home's Wi-Fi network capabilities. As long as your streaming device is able to connect to the same wireless network as the Bose SoundTouch, you can stream from anywhere in your home.
[ Larry  Nov 04, 2015 ]  Staff
What are the measurements for this speaker?
[ Joanna  Sep 21, 2015 ]

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Our research shows the following: W=8.31" H=5.56" D=4.43" If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
