Setting Up
Selecting the locations for your Lifestyle 40 music system
®
When you place your speakers according to the guidelines below, a combination of reflected
and direct sound provides a lifelike stereo image virtually everywhere in the room. You may
experiment with the placement and orientation of the Jewel Cube® speakers and Acoustimass® module to produce the sound most pleasing to you.
For more discussion of speaker placement and room acoustics, see “Fine-tuning your
system” on page 28.
Jewel Cube speakers
Follow these guidelines to select locations that provide the maximum stereo effect from your
Lifestyle® 40 music system (Figure 2).
1. For the most lifelike sound, place the Jewel Cube speakers 6-12 feet (1.8-3.6 m) apart.
They can be as close as 3 feet (1 m) or as far apart as 15 feet (4.6 m).
2. Place the Jewel Cube speakers 6-12 inches (15-30 cm) from the surface behind them.
3. Direct one cube of each speaker toward the center of the room. Direct the other cube
toward a side wall to create reflected sound.
CAUTION: Choose a stable and level surface for your Jewel Cube speakers. Vibration can
cause the speakers to move, particularly on very smooth surfaces. For stability, peel off the
backing from the two identical rubber feet and center them in the matching shapes on the
bottom of each speaker.
Note: The Jewel Cube speakers are magnetically shielded so you can place them close to
the TV without af fecting picture quality.
Note: If you put the speakers in a bookcase unit, be sure to place each one at the front
edge of the shelf. Placing speakers in an enclosed space can change the tonal quality of the
sound. This effect is minimized if the shelves are filled with books.

Acoustimass module
®
Follow these guidelines to select a location for the Acoustimass module.
Note: To avoid interference with the TV picture, place the Acoustimass module at least
18 inches (45 cm) from the TV.
1. Place the Acoustimass module along the same wall or close to the same end of the room
as the Jewel Cube® speakers. See the example in Figure 2.
2. Select a convenient location – under a table, behind a sofa. Do not allow furniture or
drapes to block the ventilation openings of the module.
3. Place the Acoustimass module within reach of the audio input cable, speaker cables, and
an AC power (mains) outlet.
4. Select a position for the Acoustimass module (Figure 3). For proper ventilation, place it on
the long edge, with the connectors facing the floor. An alternate position is on its largest

5. Once you have selected a position for the module, place the four self-adhesive rubber feet
near the corners of the bottom surface. The rubber feet provide increased stability and
protection from scratches.
6. Aim the port (the round opening) into the room or along the wall to avoid blocking the port
or creating too much bass.
7. For best bass performance, do not place the port at equal distances from any two walls or
from a wall and the ceiling.
CAUTION: Do not cover the ventilation openings of the Acoustimass module. The slots on
the end provide ventilation for the built-in electr onic circuitry, and should not be blocked.

Operating Your Lifestyle® 40 Music System
Fine-tuning your system
Figure 32
Treble and bass controls
In most situations, you only need to follow the speaker placement guidelines (see “Setting
Up” on pages 6-7) for your system to provide excellent sound quality. You do not need to
adjust tone settings for changes in volume, since Bose® patented integrated signal processing provides a natural tonal balance over the full range of volume settings. If desired, you can
further fine-tune your system as described here.
Adjusting speaker controls
The Lifestyle® 40 music system treble and bass controls are located on the Acoustimass®
module (Figure 32). They allow you to adjust the treble (high frequencies) and bass (low
frequencies). In the normal setting, the dots on each control are in the 12 o’clock position.
You can also locate the normal setting by feeling when the control settles into the notch at
this position. Turn the controls clockwise to increase, and counterclockwise to decrease, the
amount of treble or bass.
Compensating for room acoustics
®
The acoustics (sound qualities) of your room can affect the overall sound quality of any
speaker system. In general, you can reduce many problems with acoustics by the careful use
of the treble and bass controls.
Treble
Bass
Too much or too little treble
Rooms that reflect a lot of sound, especially those with bare floors and walls, may sound
overly shrill or “bright.” Turning down the treble control (toward – ) decreases treble sound.
Rooms with a lot of sound-absorbing furnishings, such as upholstered furniture, wall-to-wall
carpet, or heavy drapes, may sound muffled or dull. Moving speakers further away from soft
furnishings increases treble. You can increase treble sound by slightly turning up the treble
control (toward + ).
Too much or too little bass
You can decrease bass sound by turning down the bass control (toward – ). To increase bass,
turn up the bass control (toward + ). Acoustimass module placement also affects the amount
of bass you hear. Placing the module closer to the corner of the room increases bass. Moving
the module away from the corner decreases bass.
Optimizing AM/FM radio reception
You can adjust the orientation of your AM/FM antenna for the strongest signal by selecting
SIGNAL LEVELS with the MENU button (Figure 33). Select the AM or FM radio, and the
display shows you the strength level of the received signal. While watching the display,
reposition your antenna until the highest possible signal level is achieved. The signal level can
vary from 0 to 99. The manual tuning keys are provided so that you can check the signal
strengths of multiple stations.

Operating a Multi-Room Lifestyle® 40 Music System
Operating in more than one room
Your Lifestyle® 40 music system can control up to four sets of Bose® powered speakers,
allowing your family to enjoy different audio sources (CD, radio, TV, etc.) in up to four rooms.
These rooms are referred to as room A, B, C, and D, with room A being the primary room (the
one used for a one-room system). If two or more rooms are connected to your system, the
Personal music center displays ROOM and HOUSE buttons, and room indicators (A, B, C,
and/or D). Figure 41 shows an example display for a two-room system.
Figure 41
The ROOM button lets you control a single room or two or more rooms that share a source
Example display for a two-room
system
The HOUSE button lets you control all connected rooms as one
The room indicators tell you what was selected by the
ROOM or HOUSE button
Understanding the room indicators
A boxed letter indicates the presently-selected room or rooms. The selected room is
affected by any source changes, or any change you make using the VOLUME, MUTE,
ON/OFF, or SLEEP buttons.
B
An unboxed letter indicates a room listening to a shared source. A shared source is one
that is playing in the controlled room as well as in up to three additional rooms. If you
change the radio station, CD track, etc., of the shared source, the change affects all
rooms sharing this source. However, you cannot change sources for all affected rooms
at the same time. The VOLUME, MUTE, ON/OFF, and SLEEP buttons only affect the
boxed room(s).
An empty box appears for each connected room when you press the HOUSE button.
When you change the volume in the HOUSE mode, the numerical level appearing on the
display does not represent the actual volume level in all connected rooms. It only
represents the actual volume in rooms represented by a boxed letter.
