Setting up your system

Your VideoWave® entertainment system is packed in two boxes. The large rectangular box contains the monitor.

The smaller box contains the control console, monitor stand, screws and system parts. Inside are two boxes labeled "1" and "2." These boxes contain the system parts that are used in different stages of the setup process.

There are two parts to the setup process:

  • Physical setup—This part of the setup includes placing the monitor and control console, and making system connections. The items used in this stage are the monitor, the stand, the parts located in Box "1," and the control console
  • Interactive setup—This part begins when you turn on the system and start following the on-screen instructions provided by the Unify® intelligent integration system. This proprietary technology will help you complete the setup, showing you the right inputs and best connection options, and will even verify that you've done it correctly. The items used for this stage are located in Box "2"

Monitor placement and connections

Much like a live performance in a concert hall, the VideoWave II entertainment system relies on the reflective surfaces of the room to deliver a spacious home theater experience. The system features ADAPTiQ® audio calibration technology, which customizes the sound during setup based on where the system is positioned, as well as the size, shape and furnishings of the room it is in.

The following recommendations will help ensure the best-possible placement of your monitor:

  • The back of the monitor should be approximately 1-4 in. (2.5-10.0 cm) from a wall
  • You should try to allow 3-10 ft. (0.9-3.0 m) between the monitor and the side walls of the room
  • Allow at least 8 in. (20 cm) of clearance from the top of the monitor to any surface above (such as a shelf) to allow for proper ventilation and acoustic performance
  • The area between the side walls and the monitor should be free of objects such as tall bookcases and storage cabinets that would block the sound
  • To enjoy the best audio and video performance, try to position the monitor so that the screen’s vertical center is at eye level when you are seated

Placing the monitor with stand

Unpack the stand, screws and monitor.

Lower the monitor onto the stand, carefully lining up the holes in the bottom of the monitor with the supports on the stand.

WARNING: The monitor weighs from 106 to 118 pounds (48 to 54 kg), depending on screen size. To prevent personal injury, a two-person lift is required.

On the rear panel of the A/V monitor, firmly pull out on the bottom of the connector cover to remove it.

Insert the screws into the holes on the back of the monitor and tighten using the provided 5/32 in. (4 mm) hex wrench.

Place the monitor on a stable, flat surface capable of supporting 150 pounds (68 kg).

Attach the A/V monitor cable and AC power cord to the A/V monitor. Be sure the A/V monitor cable is pushed in slightly to release the snares holding it in place.

Route both cords through the leg of the stand and re-attach the connector cover.

Plug the other end of the AC power cord from the A/V monitor into a power outlet.

Bose strongly recommends using straps to help prevent the TV from tipping. To use the straps, follow these steps:

Using a 5/32" (4 mm) hex wrench (not included), remove the top two bolts from the rear panel of the A/V monitor.

Using the same bolts, attach the two straps to the back of the A/V monitor.

Attach each strap to the nearest wall stud. Do not attach both straps to the same stud.

Hold the bracket on the end of each strap against the wall 18-24 inches (46-61 cm) above the tabletop. In the center of each wall stud, mark the location of the two holes in the bracket.

Using a 7/64" (3 mm) drill bit (not included), drill four pilot holes.

Secure each bracket to the wall using two of the provided screws.

Push A/V monitor as close to the wall as possible.

Tighten the straps to remove any slack between the A/V monitor and the wall.

Bundle the remaining length of the straps and secure them out of reach behind the A/V monitor.

 On the back of the control console, insert the free end of the A/V monitor cable into the jack labeled: A/V OUT to Monitor. Again, be sure the A/V monitor cable is pushed in slightly to release the snares holding it in place.

Insert the power supply output cord into the Power jack on the control console.

 Insert one end of the AC power cord into the power supply. Make sure to push the plug in as far as it can go.

 Plug the other end of the power cord into a power outlet.
