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. Bose has received two reports of the bass modules igniting when used in 220-volt electrical outlets in Europe. No injuries were reported.
This recall involves about 20,500 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. The components are black. 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.
U.S. Military Exchanges and select U.S. retailers from September 2009 through September 2012 for between $600 and $800.
