Bose Wave Radio

Yesterday I e-mailed Bose trying to find out about getting a new remote for my radio. They e-mailed me back and said They will need the 17 digit serial number from the bottom of my radio to identify which system I have. When I first e-mailed them I sent them the model number, why would they need the serial number all that will tell them is who the radio is registered too. The radio was about $400 when it was new. When my mother died in 2001 that's one of the things that I inherited.

@Victor Murphy,
Here's the telephone number for their technical support department. Perhaps they can explain to you why they need the serial number.

For technical help:

@Butrflynet,
According to their website, this is what they say about requiring a serial number when you register a product:

Quote:
BoseĀ® Product Serial Number

Your BoseĀ® product serial number is a 17-character letter-number combination located on the back or bottom of the product or product component. (Note: Bose headphones and headsets use a different numerical code. See product literature for location.)

The serial number identifies the product as being yours, and helps us verify the origin of sale.

@Butrflynet,
Ive got a number of them and we are very pleased with their sound and selectivity and sensitivity.
There are Bose STores all over. Why not just drive down to one and tell them youve got a "Wave radio" made before ,2005 (they changed their CD drives for the Wave and they made some changes on the little remotes)
Ive found that most remotes are interchangeablke within the decades of manufacture. The newer ones just have more **** like MP3 and ipod docking ports and the new ones wont address the CD players of the old ones.

Bose has a neat lifetimw thing. When your radio goes, you can trade the whole thing in and for about 100 bucks get a whole new system.
I hadda do this once cause we had the radio sitting out on a patio wall for two days and we went away and came back to a radio that had been rained on and it got shorted out.

You get what you pay for, and I still will pay the premium for a quality sounding CD/Clock radio like Bose. Theres none even close.

They are coming out with a "wave" internet radio .
