schx57: 4:15 you swap red and white and don't even mention the change! Why?
Todd Szopo: does it have to be 2k ohm? could it be 2.2k ohm? 2k hard to find
Watsomedy: I have an iPod dock with a headphone jack in the back. I plug in the double sided headphone cord thing in the back and into my phones headphone thing and the freaker isn't working
Raul Saldivar: Excellent dudde !!! You´re a Genius !!!! careful with the finger nail hope you´re OK!!!!
Mark Shaw: I struggled to do the conversion as the soldering is very small, but it worked fantastically and I do love my old Bose dock its mainly for my 19 year old son as they love base and can only get the affect with high volume on there other cheap systems, the Bose works wall at lower volumes so we are all happy at home.
I can now play it through by airplay wireless at home, thanks Matt you the Boss!!!
Mike Taylor: Matt,
My patch cable doesn't have a ground. Does it matter?
mark strommen: You the man hack thanks
billllevien: FYI: I Found a dock extender cable on ebay that basically has a breakout board that can fit a resister in the case, and can easily be unsoldered and resoldered to an aux cable so that when you unplug the extender the sounddock turns off
Simon King: OK, I've actually connected the resister to 19 and 20 at the other side of the ribbon cable connecter and it still doesn't work.
What am I doing wrong?
Simon King: Hi MattMikkaTV, I have tried adding the 2k ohm resister to pins 19 and 20, but it doesn't seem to work at all. The quality of your video is too poor to see where exactly you're soldering the resister in. Do you go in at the actual ribbon connector or to one of the small dot holes a little bit away from the ribbon connector?
MattMikkaTV: Hi Arnel, Not sure if Erden's comment on the subject solved your problem, according to the circuitry mapping from bose and apple that i have no jumper is needed between 4 and 20, but if it works then try it.
MattMikkaTV: Sure can, in the rare event that i watch tv that's what i do....
MattMikkaTV: Yup, but if you dont want to shell out for another docking station then this is the mod for you, its specific to this model, other models naturally are different.
MattMikkaTV: Hi bill, it is the resistance on those terminals that tells the docking station the device is docked, so in essence YES.
MsPLambert: I have the same Bose sound dock, using what you showed on your video can I also hook it to my TV? And get sound through the sound dock?
Erden Tasbas: hi mr Arnel ı solved that problem you have to shorted pin 4 to pin 20.This wil solve your problem
Erden Tasbas: I have the same problem like Arnel Ahmee Pls Help
Erden Tasbas: I have the same problem like Arnel Ahmee Pls Help
Arnel Ahmee: thank you so much for this tutorial video,using this method i just had a little concern, sometimes when i plugged my dock it doesnt power up rite away, i still have to unplugged it and plugged it again til it powers up, COULD YOU PLS GIVE ME SOME IDEA HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM, THANKS...
Delphinus Prime: Ever since I bought my sound dock a few years ago I've been looking for a mod like this. I just added the line in and it works great!
chloe hammie: u do realise for some new bose users it has a aux input built in behid the new ones that bose is a very old one
Bob49827: It's time to modify my Bose Docking station, using your technique
Pallepop909: audio sounds so fake . that is not the recording of it playing
Bill Levien: Does adding the resister make it so that the Bose now thinks it's "ON" even when nothing is connected?
Naser Younus: time to modify my bose
Alejandro Bocanegra: Hello David, just shorted pin 19 to GND (pin 24). It will work. Good luck, I did it , it works!
pivitman101: sweet thanks works great, just hate when I plug something in I get this loud noise. Now time to try and set up the play/pause, forward/revers controls.
Josh Dawson: great vid. I have a question though, I have a series 1 V2 version and the circuit board layout is different. The resistor trick doesn't seem to work on this version and I have to put an apple device into the dock port for the speaker to turn on. Do you know what connection has to be made to fool the sounddock into turning on with the V2?
MattMikkaTV: I haven't ever seen one without a ground, i have seen them so thin that they are hard to see, if in doubt just get another cable, i believe it needs the ground as a differential reference.
joe frank: My 3.5mm audio input line (2 male RCA on one end...3.5mm on other end) doesn't have a third wire ground, just left and right wires. Do I need to ground it? If I do, where can I find the cable?
David Lopez Ruiz: Thanks a lot great vid! I hope you can help me... I have the bose sounddock series I V2, and just bought a converter to 3.5 mm jack cable, but didn't worked, after investigation seems the V2 is changing de ipod via usb instead of firewire, so will it work for me if I use the cable but also join together pin 19 and 20 with the resistor? I believe the problem I have is that the Docking is not powering up... and wondering if I can skip the soldered pin 13,14 and 24, by using the cable I bought..
MattMikkaTV: Nice !! your welcome...
richcoe1971: I just completed the wiring and it works great. I used a 2.2k ohms 0.5rW resistor and plugged my bose into the headphone output to my Samsung TV and it sounds fantastic! No need to hook up my ipod to make it work. Thanks Matt!
MattMikkaTV: Robustness, Availability, this resistor you can get anywhere really. SMD'S, I like to use "SMT" since "SMD" can be taken another way..LOL, usually come on rolls and usually require pcb contact to dissipate heat, depending on amperage of course, no reason other than availability and ease of handling.
MattMikkaTV: Yes it can be done fairly easily.
MattMikkaTV: Should Work just fine, this mod doesn't use the connector at all.
irvdabird: Thanks for sharing, this is pretty cool! BTW, you seem very familiar with the sound dock, would you know if there's a way to hack a non-Bose power supply?
DEVERSANTTTT: why not 2k SMD?
MattMikkaTV: That Is a great idea !! i will look into that, were a bit busy filming how-to and instructional videos now, but that will be on my list, thanks for posting!
jackedfu: can you make a video on how to swap the 30 pin connector to work with newer iPods?
Jason Adam Juliano: thanks for this!
