Bose Recalls Home Theater Speaker Systems Due to Fire Hazard

Bose is recalling approximately 20,500 Dual-Voltage CineMate II home theater speaker systems. A component in the bass module can fail when used outside of the U.S. in electrical outlets rated at 220 volts or higher, presenting a fire hazard to consumers.

This recall involves dual-voltage CineMate Series II and CineMate GS Series II digital home theater speaker systems designed to operate with U.S. 120-volt electrical outlets and European outlets of 220 volts or higher.

Each speaker system includes two speakers, one bass module, a remote control device, an interface module and accessories.

Dual-voltage systems included in the recall have a product code of 051365, 051470 or 057971, which are the first six digits of the serial number on the product label located on the back of the bass module.

The Bose speaker systems affected by this recall were sold at select U.S. retailers and U.S. Military Exchanges from September 2009 through September 2012.

Consumers should immediately stop using and unplug any dual-voltage CineMate II systems and contact Bose to arrange for a free repair or replacement of the bass module.
