Expanding your system

Your Lifestyle® system can deliver Bose® quality sound in up to 14 additional rooms in your home. Connecting a Bose link-compatible product to the Bose link OUT connector on the control console enables you to listen to a different sound source in other rooms. For example, a DVD movie can be playing in the main room while you listen to the AM/FM radio in the other room. For more information or to purchase additional products, contact your local Bose dealer. See the contact list included with your system.

Expansion guidelines

To set up a Bose link-compatible system in another room, follow the instructions included with the expansion product and be aware of the following:

bose link connections: your system cannot operate with bose link-enabled products connected to both the bose link in and bose link out connectors at the same time

room codes: the speaker system and the remote in your other room must be set to the same room code. see the owner’s guide that came with the bose link product for information on setting room codes

house code: the house code is what enables the remote control in another room to communicate with the control console. if you set up a bose link-enabled speaker system in another room, the remote used in that room must be set to the same house code that is stored in the control console. your system is set to house code 15 at the factory. to see the house code, select homewide in the setup menu and then select house code. on the screen, you will see the house code and a representation of how the second room remote control switches should be set to match the house code in the control console. your system has two house code modes. the standard mode provides 16 house codes and 16 room codes. if you live in a multi-unit dwelling, you can select the alternative mode that provides 64 house codes and 4 room codes

Note: Switching between standard and alternative house code modes resets the house code to zero (0).

using hdmi® connections: to hear audio in another room from any device connected to hdmi® input 1, 2 or 3, you must also make an analog audio connection between the device and the left (l) and right (r) analog connections for that input. likewise, you must also make analog audio connections if a digital audio connection is made for input 4 or 5

radio operation: using an expansion room remote, you can select and control the radio that is built into the control console in the main room. however, if both rooms want to listen to the radio at the same time, they can only listen to the same station
