doesn’t have a subwoofer output. Can I still use it with an Acoustimass®
home theater speaker systems will certainly work for you, even without a subwoofer
output on your receiver. Simply make connections from the two- or five-speaker
outputs on your receiver to the Acoustimass low-frequency module. Be sure to use
the cable supplied with the system.
The system will
automatically combine low frequencies from all of the channels driven by your
system. Powered Acoustimass modules have a dedicated amplifier that drives only
the woofer(s) in the module, freeing the receiver to put all its power into the
cube arrays. Middle and high frequencies are then reproduced by the Bose cube
arrays using your receiver's internal amplifier.
This same process
makes Acoustimass speakers compatible with SACD or DVD-A players that are designed
to be used with five full-range speakers and no subwoofer. This is because Acoustimass
systems do not need a subwoofer output and sum the low-frequencies from all five
like to experience the clarity of Bose sound from my computer. What Bose systems
can I use with my PC?
by considering Bose multimedia computer speakers for full, rich sound from your
computer or portable players. To learn more about our computer speaker systems
Many Bose home
theater and powered speaker systems (excluding passive speaker systems such as
Acoustimass systems) will work with a computer (both PC and Mac), as long as the
computer is configured with a stereo RCA-type or 1/8" stereo mini-jack output.
Simply connect your computer output to the auxiliary input of the Bose system
using the appropriate cable to enjoy lifelike Bose sound from your PC.
It is important
to note that most Bose components are not magnetically shielded and should be
kept a minimum of two feet away from any computer monitor and/or CPU.
I get the best possible AM radio reception from my Wave® radio?
Many factors can
affect AM reception, including terrain distance from the station, power of the
station, manmade and natural electrical interference, interference from nearby
high-powered stations and interference from distant stations operating on the
same frequency as a local station. Various dwelling construction materials can
also impact AM reception.
The Wave® radio
and the Acoustic Wave® music system use a highly sensitive built-in ferrite
rod loop antenna, tuned specifically for the AM broadcast band (530kHz –
1710kHz). Simply moving the radio near a window or to a higher location often
improves the AM reception. In addition, the unit can be rotated to point the built-in
AM antenna in the direction of the desired station.
