Expanding your system

Expanding with a Bose® Lifestyle® system

You can use your Acoustic Wave® music system as an expansion speaker for a Lifestyle® music system. To do this, connect the audio output of the Lifestyle® music system into the AUX IN jacks on your Acoustic Wave® music system. Refer to the Lifestyle® system owner’s guide for detailed wiring information. Once connected, press AUX on the remote to enjoy the same music played on the Lifestyle® music system

Expanding with other external devices

You can also use your Acoustic Wave® music system to produce room-filling sound with other external devices such as a CD player, gaming system, cable/satellite box, TV or DVD player. Once you have connected your external device to the AUX IN jack on the back of the system:

  • Turn on the external device
  • On the Bose remote control, press AUX to select the source and turn the system on. If the system is already on, just press AUX. The display will show “AUX” and the "VOLUME" level
  • Press Volume up or Volume down to adjust the volume level of the external device. All other source functions will need to be made at the external device. If necessary, refer to the owner’s guide for details
