Moutain lion won't recognize my bose companion 2 speakers, any solutions?

Time:November 30

Just upgraded to a new mac mini 17 running moutain lion. Unfortunately the system won't recognize my Bose companion 2 speakers. I really would hate to have to get new speakers. These sound great, Is there any solutions? If not what computer speakers are compatible with mountain lion? Thanks.

If it is the speakers can you recommend a good but not overly expensive speaker set that you know are compatible with mountain lion. I have been reading a lot of online blogs on the subject and it seems I'm not the only one having an audio compatability issue with mountain lion. Though it could be the speaker brand too. Apparently Bose is not too compatible with mountain lion, at least it seems to be the brand that is having issues according to online bloggers.
Thanks much appreciated.
