Setting Up
Before you begin
Bose® Virtually Invisible® speaker technology allows you to enjoy lifelike home performances
from the very latest surround-sound encoded movies, CDs, and television shows, without a
room full of speakers.
Your stereo VCR or stereo television sends the encoded program material to the surroundsound receiver, which interprets it by distributing various sounds to particular speakers.
Although the sound mix varies with different types of programs, dialogue is usually sent to
the center speaker while sounds from the left or right side of the picture go to the left or right
front speakers. Ambient sounds and special effects are directed to one or both of the surround (rear) speakers. The unique, easy-to-hide Acoustimass® module delivers bass for all
channels. At any point in surround-sound performance, you may hear sound from all or just a
few of the speakers.
To select surround-encoded program material, look for any of the terms Surround, Dolby
Surround, and the double-D symbol
* on tapes and discs, and the word
“surround” preceding a TV broadcast. Your Acoustimass 10 Series II home theater speakers
are also compatible with Dolby Digital* (also known as AC-3) receivers and program material.
The special settings for Dolby Pro-Logic and Dolby Digital receivers are described on
page 13.
You can also enjoy a wide variety of stereo programming that is not surround-encoded with
your Acoustimass 10 Series II speakers. Simply adjust your receiver accordingly.
Unpacking the carton
• Remove any staples from the opened carton flaps.
• Remove the brown inner cartons containing the five cube speaker arrays and the Acoustimass module terminal cover.
• Gently roll the carton over onto its side and then onto its opening.
• Carefully lift the carton from around the Acoustimass module and packing cushions.
• Do not detach the removable cables connected to the Acoustimass module.
• If the speakers or the Acoustimass module appear damaged, do not use them. Repack
everything in the original carton and contact your authorized Bose dealer immediately.
WARNING: The Acoustimass module weighs 28.7 pounds (13 kg). Use good lifting
practice to avoid injury.
WARNING: To avoid danger of suffocation, keep the plastic bags that wrap these speakers
out of the reach of children.

Placing your Acoustimass 10 Series II speakers to achieve realistic home
theater sound
The center speaker localizes action and dialogue on your screen. Sound from the center
speaker should seem to come from within the picture.
The left and right front speakers create a sound image wider than the screen that seems
natural to viewers sitting anywhere in the room.
The surround speakers add subtle sounds and special effects that expand the visual image,
bringing the viewer into the center of the action. The surround speakers should be positioned
to allow the sound to reach the viewer from both sides, rather than from directly behind.
You can place the front and center speakers near a TV screen with no picture interference,
because all of the cube speakers are magnetically shielded. You can use any of the five cube
arrays at any location.
The Acoustimass module is not magnetically shielded and should be at least 2 feet (.6 m)
from your screen, but at the same end of the room as the front and center speakers. Bose®
Acoustimass speaker technology takes advantage of the fact that the source of bass sound is
difficult to locate, so you can hide the Acoustimass module conveniently out of sight.

Note: Now is a good time to record the serial number of the Acoustimass® module on page 3
of this guide and on your warranty card. It is a good idea to save all packing materials for
possible future use.
Setting Up
English
A suggested home theater layout that conforms to the guidelines described above is shown
in Figure 2. Twist the pairs of cube speakers so they describe angles that create room-filling
sound patterns.
You may choose to place the speakers differently, to take advantage of the sound characteristics of different rooms. Your speakers come with sufficient cable lengths to allow you to
have the following distances between components:
• Up to 20 feet (6 m) between the Acoustimass® module and the receiver.
• Up to 20 feet (6 m) between the Acoustimass module and the front and center cube
speakers.
• Up to 50 feet (15 m) between the Acoustimass module and the surround speakers.
Bose wall brackets and floor stands can extend your placement options. See “Accessories”
on page 15.
Note: Please follow wall bracket instructions carefully. Proper mounting will insure optimum
performance from your system.

Selecting the locations for your speakers
The cables provided with your Acoustimass 10 Series II system vary in length, allowing a
great deal of flexibility in speaker placement. Use the following placement suggestions as
general guidelines. Choose convenient speaker locations that give you good sound.

• Place the front speakers on either side of your TV, at least 6 feet (2 m), or as much as 15
feet (5 m) apart.
• Place them in line with the center of the screen for the best sound balance (position 1).
You can also place them diagonally as shown below in position 2. Placing them in a line
above the top of the TV is a third choice (position 3).
• The speaker on the left as you face the TV is connected to the LEFT FRONT output jack
on the Acoustimass® module.

Center cube speaker
Sound from the center speaker should seem to come from within the picture.
Figure 4 shows suggested positions for the center speaker.
• Place the center cube speaker above, below, or on top of your television. If below, be sure
that the cube speaker is not supporting the weight of the television in any way.
• Keep it as close to the vertical center of the screen as possible, for the most accurate
dialogue reproduction (positions 1 or 2).
CAUTION: If you are placing the center speaker on top of the television, use the smaller of
the two sets of four rubber feet provided. This will also provide extra stability on surfaces
such as marble or glass. Additional rubber feet are available, free, by calling the Bose®
customer service numbers inside the back cover of this manual. Ask for Part Number
178321-04.

Surround cube speakers
The left and right rear channel sound should reach the viewer from both sides, rather than
from directly behind. Refer to Figure 5.
• Put one on the left and the other on the right, beside or just to the rear of the home theater
seating area.
• Place them high up, to avoid a direct sound path to the ears of the listeners (position 1).
• If you want the speakers located as shown in positions 2 and 3, make sure they are not
directed at the viewers.
• The rear speaker on the left as you face the TV is connected to the LEFT SURROUND
output jack on the Acoustimass® module.

Acoustimass module
Bose® recommends putting your Acoustimass module at the same end of the room as the
television monitor. To prevent interference, keep the module at least 2 feet (.6 m) from the
television.
• You may hide the Acoustimass module behind or under furniture, but do not block the
opening. Be sure there is at least 2 inches (5 cm) between the opening and any surface.
• If the opening faces the wall it increases the bass; if it faces away it decreases the bass.
For the most bass response, place the opening 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) from a wall or
corner.
• Stand the Acoustimass module vertically or horizontally (Figure 6). To stand it on the
cable connection end, remove the cover by gently pulling it away.
After selecting a place for the Acoustimass module, attach the larger set of four rubber feet
to the bottom surface for additional stability. The feet protect the cable connections and
must be mounted when the Acoustimass module is standing on that end.

Connecting the speakers
English
The supplied cables make it easy for you to connect your system. The connections at the
Acoustimass® module are already made for you. There are three sets of cables, joined
together to form ribbons, which may be separated or “unzipped” as much as needed to
comfortably reach the speakers (Figure 7). Separate the cables as you are laying out the
cable lengths.
• The 20 foot (6 m) cable with three pairs of wires connects the Acoustimass module to the
center, left, and right front cube speakers.
• The 50 foot (15 m) cable with two pairs of wires connects the Acoustimass module to the
left and right surround cube speakers.
• The 20 foot (6 m) cable with five pairs of wires connects the Acoustimass module to the
outputs on the receiver. Separate these wires just enough to reach the connectors.
Figure 7
Separating cables
CAUTION: Before making any connections turn off your receiver or amplifier and unplug it
from the outlet (AC power mains). Not doing so may result in damage to your system.
Never connect the cubes directly to a receiver output. Always connect the cube speakers to
the Acoustimass module, then connect the Acoustimass module to the receiver.
Never use broken or frayed wiring, which can result in electrical shock or damage to your
system.
The supplied cables are not intended for in-wall installation. Check local building codes or
enlist a qualified installer.

Using Your Acoustimass® 10 Series II Speaker System
For realistic home theater sound
English
Each speaker produces only the sound directed to it by the steering logic in your surroundsound receiver. During a surround-sound program the front and center speakers will emit
sound almost constantly, while the surround speakers may be silent for periods of time.
Setting your Dolby Pro-Logic receiver
You must set the volume levels for the front, center, and surround speakers at your receiver.
You can adjust these levels at the receiver or with the remote control. Your receiver may have
a test tone to help you set volume levels. If it does, follow these steps:
• Press test tone ON at the remote.
• Set the volume for the speakers in the following order: Left, Center, Right, Surround.
• Balance the pink noise tone for evenness among all individual speakers.
Instructions for this process vary, depending on the brand and model of receiver you are
using. Follow your receiver owner’s guide for testing and adjusting the balance of each
speaker.
For use in video applications, be sure the SURROUND-SOUND center mode setting of your
receiver is on NORMAL (Figure 11).

Bass and treble adjustments
Upholstered furniture, wall-to-wall carpets, or heavy drapes can muffle treble (high notes),
making your speaker system sound bass heavy. Bare floors and walls and hard surface
furniture can make your speaker system sound too shrill. After listening to your speakers, you
may want to adjust the balance of bass and treble. You can use the bass and treble controls
on your receiver.
