INTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing a Bose® LIFESTYLE® DVD home entertainment system. Superior
audio performance for both music and movies places this system at the heart of home theater enjoyment.
Instructions in this guide apply to the Bose LIFESTYLE® 18, 28, and 35 Series II systems and
to the LIFESTYLE® 38 and 48 systems.
While suited to slightly different home entertainment needs, each of these advanced systems
includes connection jacks to extend its capabilities in up to 14 other rooms. All five systems
also feature the proprietary ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system, for tailoring system performance to make it optimal for your home.
In addition, LIFESTYLE® 38 and 48 systems feature an exciting and responsive uMusicTM intelligent playback system, which plays stored music to suit your changing taste and moods.
Use this guide as needed
You may want to rely on this guide as a step-by-step instructional aid or simply as a reference if you get stuck. Suggestions on how you can proceed follow.
For a step-by-step approach
• Begin by identifying the parts of your system, using the illustrations on the next two pages.
• Consider the guidelines on placement to determine the best locations for your media center, cube speakers, and Acoustimass® module. These begin on page 8.
• Using the supplied cables, follow the basic procedures and diagrams as you connect all the
system parts, including the AM and FM antennas and power cords, beginning on page 12.
For reference only, as needed
• Confirm that the basic connection between your LIFESTYLE® system and your television
allows you to see on-screen system menus.
Note: Basic setup is required for you to use the supplied Setup Disc 1 and to run the ADAPTiQ
calibration process to adjust the sound so it suits your room layout and furnishings.
• Scan our recommended approach on page 20 to power up the system and test for optimal
sound in your room.
• Check the detailed overview of how to connect other equipment to extend the versatility of
the system in “Connecting other components to the system” on page 29. Some possibilities include:
• PVR or DVR (a personal or digital video recorder) • VCR (a video cassette recorder)
• Cable or satellite box
• Game console
• DVD changer
• Recording equipment
For system expansion into other rooms
If you are ready to expand the system sound to other rooms, you may want to familiarize
yourself with special considerations for “Enjoying your system in other rooms” on page 38
before you begin making connections.

SYSTEM PLACEMENT
Positioning your media center
SYSTEM PLACEMENT
To select a location in your room for the media center, use the guidelines below:
• Place the media center close enough to other sound sources (TV, VCR, cable or satellite
box), to allow for easy cable connections. Check the length of the audio and video cables
you will use for these additional components.
Note: Additional cables are available from your local Bose® dealer. Or, to contact Bose directly,
refer to the address list provided in the carton. If you prefer, you can order cables from our
website: www.bose.com.
• Do not block the front of the media center. Allow enough room to lift up the front cover and
open the CD/DVD tray. Also, be sure you have a clear view of the display window on the
front of the media center (Figure 3).
• Place the media center within 30 feet (9.1 meters) of the Acoustimass® module (the length of the audio input cable).
Note: For convenience, until your system is completely installed, you may wish to keep the
media center positioned for easy access to its rear connection panel.

Front features of the
media center
Display window – Make sure you can see
this information while using your system.
Front door – Make sure you allow
enough room to lift this door.
Š
Disc tray – Make sure nothing blocks this CD/DVD tray as it slides open.
IR emitter – Make sure nothing impedes it from
sending signals to other components in the room.
Placing the five cube speakers around your room
When you place your speakers according to the guidelines below, they provide the audio
atmosphere of a home theater. If you like, experiment with the placement and orientation of
the speakers to produce the sound most pleasing to you.
Bose offers a variety of speaker mounting accessories, including stands and wall brackets. For more information, or to purchase accessories, contact your local Bose dealer or visit www.bose.com. To contact Bose directly, refer to the address list provided in
the carton.
CAUTION: Choose a stable and level surface for each speaker. Vibration can cause speakers to
move, particularly on smooth surfaces like marble, glass, or highly polished wood.

SYSTEM PLACEMENT
Deciding where you want the center speaker
1.
Place the center speaker in an upright position, directly above or below the center of the
TV screen or as close to that as possible.
2.
Align the front of speaker with the front edge of the TV screen.
CAUTION: Attach the supplied rubber feet (or pad) to its bottom surface before placing a
center speaker on top of your TV. This provides stability and prevents shifting from vibration.To
obtain additional rubber feet, contact Bose® Customer Service. Refer to the Bose address list
included with your system.
Arranging the left and right front speakers
To best link sound to picture, put the left and right front speakers near your TV (Figure 4).
• The supplied front cables allow for placement of the speakers up to 20 feet (6.1 meters)
from the Acoustimass module.
• Set or mount each speaker in an upright position and lined up with the vertical and horizontal center of the screen (Figure 4).
• We recommend a maximum distance of 3 feet (1 meter) from the edge of the TV screen to prevent over-separation of sound and picture. Vary this distance to suit your room conditions and personal preference.
• If any front speakers will be in a bookcase unit, be sure to position them at the front edge of
the shelf. Placing them farther back can change the tonal quality of the sound.

By locating them in the back half of your room and directing the cubes away from the listeners,
you prevent them from pinpointing the exact location of the sound source, which is ideal.
The surround speaker cables allow for up to 50 feet (15.2 meters) from the Acoustimass® module.
1.
Place the speakers at ear height (when seated) or higher, if possible.The longer the path
from speakers to ears, the better.
2.
Adjust one cube of each speaker to reflect sound off one or more surfaces.
Location choices for the AcoustimassŠ module
Refer to Figure 4 on page 9 and follow these guidelines for selecting a floor location for placement of the Acoustimass module:
• Along the same wall as the TV, or the same end of the room as the front speakers.
• At least 18 inches (45 centimeters) from the TV to avoid magnetically interfering with the TV
image. Move it farther away if you still notice interference.
• Positioned with its grille (with a Bose® logo) facing into the room or perpendicular to the
closest wall. This prevents the wall from blocking sound output or boosting the bass.
• Where it is not centered between two walls or between a floor and ceiling.
• Within reach of the audio input cable (30 feet or 9.1 meters); the five speaker cables (20 feet or 6.1 meters for front and center speakers; 50 feet or 15.2 meters for surround
speakers), and your AC power (mains) outlet.
• On its two sides, its top, or its bottom, but NOT standing on either end (Figure 5).
CAUTION: Do not block the ventilation slots for the built-in electronic circuitry in the module.

BASIC SYSTEM CONNECTIONS
Making an audio connection to the TV
BASIC SYSTEM CONNECTIONS
By connecting your TV audio to the LIFESTYLE® media center, you can hear TV sound and
that of any component (a camcorder or game console, perhaps) connected to the TV through
your LIFESTYLE® system speakers.
For TVs with no audio output jacks:
• If your TV does not provide audio output jacks, you will still hear audio from all of the LIFESTYLE® system sound sources, including CD, DVD, and AM/FM radio, through the system speakers. Connecting your TV audio to the LIFESTYLE® system is not required.
• You will still be able to hear your TV and any audio connected to it (from a game console,
for example) through the TV speakers. Connecting your TV audio to the LIFESTYLE® system is not required.
• If you connect the audio from your other components (like a cable box or VCR) to the media
center, you can enjoy the LIFESTYLE® system sound when using them.
Note: For information on how other components connect to the media center, refer to
“Connecting other components to the system” on page 29.
For TVs with audio output jacks:
• For your basic analog connection, use the supplied stereo audio cable (with two RCA connectors at each end, one red and one white). It connects to left (L) and right (R) audio
outputs on the rear panel of your TV and to the Audio IN jacks marked L and R for TV on the
media center rear panel (Figure 16).
• If your TV provides both fixed (FIX) and variable (VAR) audio output jacks, use the fixed
jacks for higher quality. If you use jacks labeled FIX/VAR (or with no indication if they are
fixed or variable, as shown in Figure 16), be sure to select Fixed in your TV setup menu. See “Setting the TV properly is important” on page 21.
• In addition to the analog connection illustrated on page 17, you can connect a digital cable
if your TV provides that option. If you choose to make a digital connection to the media
center, also BE SURE to make the analog connection (using the cable supplied). This
ensures consistent transmission and prevents loss of sound related to occasional degradation of the incoming digital signal.
• For a digital connection, use either a single coaxial cable (with one RCA connector at each
end) or an optical cable (which features a square snap-fit connector at each end). Then be
sure to set the Digital Audio Format to PCM as described in Media Center Options in your Operating Guide.
Note: For SCART connection instructions, refer to “Using a SCART adapter (in Europe only)” on
page 18.

OPTIONAL CONNECTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Higher-quality connections to consider
For on line assistance in making additional connections, or choosing the best choice means
to connect your specific TV, please visit our website: owners.bose.com.
What cables you have on hand or may need to buy is another factor in adding any of the following equipment:
• PVR or DVR (a personal or digital video recorder) • VCR (a video cassette recorder)
• Cable or satellite box
• Game console
• DVD changer
• Recording equipment
To determine how you will connect and use added components, consider the following.
Your choice of audio connections
Your LIFESTYLE® system media center provides Audio IN jacks for the TV and three other
components. So you can get Bose® quality audio performance added to your enjoyment of
multiple external sources.
There are two types of audio connections you can make for these components:
• Analog connections, the most commonly used, require an analog cable (with L and R connectors at each end). Two of these cables are provided with the system.
• Digital connections, made using either a coaxial digital cable (with a single RCA connector
at each end), or an optical cable (with a special square connector at each end). These
cables may be supplied with your digital-ready components, or you may need to purchase
them separately.
For a visual guide on making digital connections, refer to “Other jacks on the media center
panel” on page 36.
Note: When choosing to use a digital audio connection, we suggest that it be coupled with an
analog connection. This will better ensure continuous sound during an interruption to the digital
signal (which is slightly more sensitive to interference).
Your choice of video connections
Your LIFESTYLE® system media center provides one set of two Video Out jacks, one of them
used already to connect the TV to the media center. The video cable supplied with the system
affords this basic composite connection.
There is also one set of Video IN jacks for connecting one video component to the LIFESTYLE® media center, which passes that video signal through to the TV.
You may want to review the choices below to determine what will work to provide you with
the highest-quality video that your components can support.
Beyond composite, consider S-video
An S-video input jack, provided on many TVs, delivers higher picture quality than composite
video output. To make this connection, use the S-video cable included with your system to
connect the S-Video OUT jack on the media center and to the S-video input on your TV.
• If your TV provides an S-video input jack (Figure 23) for video input, you can make that connection to the media center Video OUT for higher quality from DVDs. Refer to Figure 26
on page 30 for an example of this choice.

OPTIONAL CONNECTIONS AND ADDITIONS
There are other connection options besides analog audio and composite video connections
from the TV to the media center, shown earlier in this guide. However, your choices depend
on the type of TV you own and what other audio and video components you want in your
home theater system setup.

• You can then connect another S-video-compatible device to the media center, which will
pass the S-video signal through to the TV. Use the cable provided with that device.
• You can also keep the composite connection between the TV and media center, in case you
connect any device (like a VCR) that requires composite. Just be sure to turn off the
S-video component, if it is also connected, when you want to watch the VCR. And turn off
the VCR to watch the device connected using S-video.
Use a component connection for the highest resolution
If your TV supports it, this is the very best choice for both higher definition and more brilliant
color. And the supplied component video adapter is designed to enable the media center to
send three separate video signals (Y, Pr, and Pb of Y, CB, CR) to your TV component jacks.
To enjoy the progressive scan feature on a TV that supports this advanced feature, you must
use a component connection between the LIFESTYLE® media center and the TV.
Note: Use of the component video adapter is not an option for TVs with a SCART adapter
connection to the media center.
Check first, to be sure that your TV has Component video in jacks, as shown in Figure 24.

To make the connections:
If your equipment provides this option, use one of the two Component video adapters provided with your system (Figure 24) and follow these steps:
1.
Connect one end of the adapter to the media center.
• Plug the two-connector end into the two Video OUT jacks on the right side of the media
center connection panel.
• Match each of the two connectors, as appropriate, to S-video or Composite jacks.
2.
Connect the free end of the adapter to video-grade cables (with RCA connectors).
3.
Connect the three video cables to the Y, Pb, and Pr jacks on your TV.
• Be sure to maintain consistency of the color-coding as you connect the Component
video adapter to video cables and then to the colored jacks on the TV.
For this Component connection (and progressive scan) to work properly, you need to make
the appropriate LIFESTYLE® System menu settings, within the list of options for Video.
Note: For details, refer to the diagram and instructions on activating component video provided
in Component connections, and refer to “Component video connections as another option” on
page 33.
Video connections for other equipment
There is a second supplied Component video adapter. You can use it to connect any other
Component-compatible device (in addition to your TV) to the LIFESTYLE® media center.
If you used a Component connection to your TV and want to pass another video signal
through the media center to the TV, you must use a Component connection from the additional component to the media center. The media center does not allow an S-Video or
Composite video signal to pass through. Connect such video equipment directly to your TV
instead.
Or you may prefer to use an optional accessory that is offered by Bose to simplify your connection of additional audio and video components.
Note: For more information about the VS-1 video expander, and any additional cables you might
need, refer to“Accessories” on page 39.

OPTIONAL CONNECTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Connecting other components to the system
Although it is not required, you may have connected your TV to the TV Audio IN jacks located on the rear of the LIFESTYLE® media center. In addition, the media center provides
Audio IN jacks labeled AUX, CBL-SAT, and VCR.
The media center also provides two Video IN jacks, one labeled Composite and the other
S-Video, for one or two compatible video devices.
However, if you have a Component video connection between the media center and the TV,
you CANNOT make any other type of video connection to the media center. Neither S-video
nor Composite video signals will pass through the media center to the TV.
In this case, make Composite or S-video connections directly to your TV, and use the TV Input
button on the LIFESTYLE® remote to select the proper TV input so you see the video from
these components.
Note: For information on how to set the LIFESTYLE® remote to control the TV, refer to your
Operating Guide.
VCR connection options
Most VCRs feature only Composite video output jacks.
• If you are connecting a VCR only, follow Steps 1 and 2 below.
• If you are connecting a VCR and cable or satellite box combination, skip to “Cable or satellite box options” on page 30.
Note: For information about the optional Bose® VS-1 video expander, which can simplify your
connection decisions, refer to“Accessories” on page 39.
To connect your VCR directly to the media center
1. Using audio cables (with dual RCA connectors at each end), connect the left (L) and right
(R) audio outputs on your VCR to the L and R Audio IN jacks for VCR on the media center
rear panel.

Connect cable/satellite L & R Audio OUT to the L & R Audio IN jacks for CBL/SAT on the
media center.
1.
Make the audio connection:
• Connect the L and R Audio output jacks from the cable/satellite box to the L and R
Audio IN for CBL/SAT on the media center.
2.
Make the video connection:
• If the cable/satellite box has an S-video output jack, connect it to the S-Video IN jack
on the media center. Then use another S-video cable to connect the S-Video OUT jack
on the media center to a Video input jack on the TV.
• If the cable/satellite box has only a Composite video output jack, connect that to the Composite Video IN jack on the media center.
• Make EITHER a composite OR an S-video connection from the cable or satellite box to the media center and use the SAME type of connection from the media center to TV
Video input (Figure 26).
• If you choose to use both composite and S-video connections, be sure to use two different Video input jacks on the TV. This will be necessary for TVs that are not capable
of distinguishing one signal from the other when both are connected to the same Video
input. Also be sure to select the proper Video input for viewing.

Digital audio connection choices
If your TV, VCR, tape deck, or AUX component has the proper output jacks, you can make a digital audio connection to the media center (Figure 30). However, be sure to also
connect the analog L and R stereo outputs from the component to the media center for each
digital device. This is a good way to ensure uninterrupted audio.
Use one of two means
• For a coaxial connection, use a 75: cable with RCA connectors (such as a video cable).
• For an optical connection, insert an optical digital cable (with a square connector) into the
Optical IN on the media center rear panel. Use the Optical OUT jacks on the media center
rear panel if you plan to make a digital recording from that component.
Before you can listen to a source through the OPTICAL input, you need to assign the OPTICAL connection to that source: TV, VCR, CBL/SAT, or AUX. See your Operating Guide
for instructions on using the system menus.

purchased at an authorized Bose® dealer and plugs into the media center.
IR emitter cable as an option
You can set your LIFESTYLE® remote to control your TV and other components connected to
it or to the media center. An IR signal sent from the media center to the component makes this additional control possible.
If a component does not respond to the LIFESTYLE® system remote control commands, the
IR (infrared) signals may not be reaching it.
For greater assurance that the IR signals reach the target component while you are setting
the remote to control the component, use the optional IR emitter. After the control is set up,
you may not need to continue using the emitter. Or keep it connected for use with one component, as needed.
Note: For information on how to set the LIFESTYLE® remote to control the TV, refer to your
Operating Guide.
To use the emitter:
1.
Insert the 3.5 mm plug at one end of the cable into the IR Emitter jack on the media center panel.
2.
At the other end of the cable, place the rounded surface near the component.
3.
Move the emitter around, as necessary, to find the best position.

Enjoying your system in other rooms
Your media center connection panel provides two audio output jacks identified by the label “Speakers.”
• Main, the top one, sends audio to the speakers connected to the media
center in the main room.
REFERENCE
• Bose® link, located just below Main, connects a cable that carries the
sound to other speakers in other rooms.
By using the Bose® link option, you can add a variety of other Bose systems, speakers, and
amplifiers (some designed specifically for this use) in up to 15 rooms total. Much more than
simply extending the reach of your system, however, it adds another level of choice. From
this one system, you can play two different sources in different areas of your house at the
same time, indoors and out.
For this purpose, Bose offers you the AL8 homewide wireless audio link or two types of
cables that connect to the Bose link jack:
• Bose link A cable, which is designed for use with a LIFESTYLE® SA-2 or SA-3 amplifier for
passive Bose speakers (and included in the carton with either amplifier).
• Bose link B cable, designed for adding other Bose link-compatible systems and to be purchased at the same time. Your choice of systems includes:
• Wave® music system
• 3•2•1 Series II or 3•2•1 GS Series II system, LIFESTYLE® RoomMate® speakers
In addition to the above specialized cables, our Bose link-compatible product line includes:
• Remote controls for use outside the main room where your LIFESTYLE® system is installed
• Expansion/extension cables for long runs into other rooms or adding multiple other rooms
• Cable adapters that may be required by your particular product for this purpose
Other products you can add
Besides having the full Bose link-compatible product line to choose from, you may prefer to use a Bose product you already own with your LIFESTYLE® system. Products that pre-date
Bose link product engineering are referred to as legacy products and require special consideration when added to the product mix.
To adapt a legacy product:
The tips below apply to products that pre-date Bose link-compatible products:
• Powered Acoustimass® 5 or Acoustimass 20 speakers require a variable DIN adapter (Bose PN278894-103)
• Model SA-1 LIFESTYLE® stereo amplifier, for use with passive Bose speakers, restricts to
one pair the number of speakers you can add
• Any Wave® radio or other legacy Bose system (3•2•1 Series I system, for example) requires
use of a variable DIN adapter (Bose PN278894-103)
For any Bose remote control to work with the above products, you must set its Room Code
to O.
Note: For information on setting a Room Code for the RC18S remote control or the PERSONAL®
music center II, refer to the owner’s guide for the accessory.

REFERENCE
To properly connect and control additional speakers, you need:
• Another LIFESTYLE® system remote control to adjust the volume and select a sound
source for the room where additional speakers are in use. One option for this is the
advanced PERSONAL® music center II, a combination remote control and system monitor.
• Appropriate LIFESTYLE® system cables to connect the added speaker system.
