Getting Started
Before you begin...
Thank you for choosing Bose® MediaMate® computer speakers.
They are designed to provide high-fidelity sound for your computer
and CD-ROM. Unique features and Bose technologies make these
speakers a superior choice for home or office workspaces.
Magnetic shielding protects your monitor from interference, even
with the speakers placed directly against your computer. Bose
patented signal processing technology ensures full, rich sound at
low volumes and when using headphones. A spaciousness
enhancer actually improves the sound from mono sources. And
you can control the blend of sound easily, using the volume
control and source mixer located on the front of one speaker.
Please take the time to read this owner’s guide. It will help you
set up and use your new computer speakers properly, for the
greatest enjoyment.

at the beginning of this guide and on your warranty card.

Setting Up
Where to put your MediaMate speakers
®
®
Bose designed these speakers to sit on your desk, where their
angled shape directs sound toward the listener. Before placing
them there, attach four of the supplied rubber feet to the recesses
on the bottom of each speaker, for protection and added stability
(see Figure 2).
Figure 2
Bottom of speaker with
recesses for rubber feet
Set the powered speaker on the right and the accessory speaker
on the left as you face the monitor (see Figure 3). Or set them in
the reverse position, if you prefer having the powered speaker
controls closer to your left hand.
For best performance, be sure that both speakers are the same
distance from where you sit when listening to them.

Setting Up
Connect the speakers
The speaker cable is already attached at one end to the accessory
speaker. Plug the other end into the TO ACCESSORY SPEAKER
jack on the powered speaker (see Figure 4 on page 8).
Note: If the speaker cable is disconnected while the system is
playing, only the powered speaker will continue to play. As a
protective feature, neither speaker will play when you reconnect
that cable. To restore sound to both speakers, disconnect and
reconnect the power pack.
How to connect to the sound source
You can connect up to two sound sources to MediaMate® speakers
– your computer and an external CD-ROM, for example. While some
CD-ROMs operate through the computer’s sound card, others
have a direct audio output jack. Before making any connections,
consult the owner’s manuals for the equipment you will be using, to
familiarize yourself with how it connects.
Use AUDIO INPUTS A for your computer or computer and CD-ROM
combination. Use AUDIO INPUTS B for an external CD-ROM with
an audio output jack, or for other components.
The sound source connected to B will play through your speakers
simultaneously with the sound from your computer. Use the source
mixer on the front of the powered speaker to adjust the balance of
sound coming from the two sources.
Two audio input cables are supplied with the speakers. If your
computer has a stereo mini jack, use the cable with a stereo mini
plug. Otherwise, use the cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
Match the colors on the connectors to the colors on the jacks, red
to red and white to white.

Setting Up/Using Your MediaMate® Speakers
1. Connect one end of the audio input cable to AUDIO INPUTS A.
2. Connect the other end to your computer’s AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
We recommend using LINE OUT if your computer sound card
offers more than one option.
3. To connect a separate CD-ROM, or another source, repeat
steps 1 and 2 using AUDIO INPUTS B.
How to connect the power pack
You must connect the AC power pack to operate the speakers.
1. Plug its cable end into the power jack on the powered speaker.
2. Plug the power pack blades into the wall outlet.
3. Turn on your computer sound source or external sound source.

How to use the volume control
Your computer hardware may have an external volume control. In
addition, the computer’s operating software and some other software you use may provide on-screen controls for the volume.
Decide which controls you prefer to use to adjust the volume while
you listen. Then follow the proper instructions on page 9 for setting
the controls you will not use.

Using Your MediaMate® Speakers
To use the speaker control for volume adjustments
Set the volume control on your sound source or your on-screen
controls at two-thirds maximum. Then use the control on the
powered speaker to adjust the volume. Turn the knob right to raise
and left to lower the
volume (see Figure 5).
The output of sound
sources and sound
cards varies, so you
should experiment to
find the best setting for
your source.

To use your sound

MIX

How to use
the mix control
The source mixer adjusts the balance of sound coming from each
source, without increasing or decreasing total speaker volume.
Source A is your computer or computer and CD-ROM combination. Source B is whatever source you connected to AUDIO
INPUTS B.
• For equal amounts of sound from both sources, set the knob
halfway between Source A and Source B.
• For more sound from your computer (than from Source B), or to
silence Source B, turn the knob to the left.
• For more sound from Source B (than from your computer), or to
silence your computer, turn the knob to the right.
When to use the headphone jack
To listen in private, plug the headphones into the headphone jack.
This mutes the sound coming from the speakers. Use the volume
control to adjust the headphone volume.

Maintaining Your MediaMate® Speakers
How to clean the speakers
Wipe the speakers using a soft cloth dampened with a mild
detergent such as dish soap. Do not use solvents, chemicals, or
sprays. You can also lightly vacuum the grilles, if you prefer.
Do not allow liquids to spill or objects to drop into any openings.
Troubleshooting
If you have a problem with your MediaMate speakers, turn off your
sound source and try the solutions below. If they don’t solve your
problem, disconnect the speakers and contact your local Bose®
dealer to arrange for service. Or, to contact Bose directly, refer to
the listings on the inside back cover. Bose Corporation will make
every effort to remedy any problem within terms of your limited
warranty.
