Safety Instructions
For your safety
1.
Read, Follow, And Save All Instructions – Read and follow the complete safety and operating
instructions in this owner’s guide before using the unit. Save this guide for future reference.
2.
Pay Attention To Warnings – Observe all warnings on the unit and in the guide.
3.
Do Not Let Objects Or Liquid Enter The Unit – Take care to prevent objects or liquids
from entering this unit. Do not use near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in
a wet basement, near a swimming pool, or anywhere else that water is present. Clean only
as directed on page 18.
4.
Maintain Proper Ventilation – Place the unit so nothing interferes with its proper ventilation.
Do not place on a bed, sofa, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings. Do not put
it in a bookcase or cabinet that may keep air from flowing through its ventilation openings.
5.
Avoid Excessive Heat – Do not place the unit near heat sources such as radiators, stoves,
or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
6.
Use Proper Power Sources – Plug the unit into a proper power supply, as described in the
operating instructions or as marked on the unit. This unit has a polarized alternating current
line plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, the plug fits into the power
outlet only one way. If you have trouble inserting it, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
your outlet may be obsolete and needs to be replaced. Contact an electrician. Do not
change the plug to defeat this safety feature.
7.
Protect The Power Cord – Route all power cords so that they are not likely to be walked on
or pinched. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, at the point where the cord connects
to the unit, and at outlets on the unit.
8.
Take Precautions When Unit Is Not In Use – If the unit will not be used for an extended
period, unplug from the outlet and remove the batteries.
9.
Be Careful With Carts And Stands – Do not place this unit on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table. The unit may fall, causing serious injury to a person or damage to
the unit. For advice on use of a particular cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table, contact
Bose® Corporation. Be careful when moving the unit and cart combination. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause it to overturn.
10. Avoid Power Lines – Do not install external antennas near overhead power lines or other
electric light or power circuits, nor where an antenna can fall into such circuits or power lines.
11. Ground All Outdoor Antennas – If an external antenna or cable system is connected to this
unit, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded. This will provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
Section 810 of the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 provides information with
respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in
wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of the grounding conductors, location of antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the ground
electrode. Refer to the antenna grounding illustration.
12. Obtain Authorized Service When It Is Indicated – Do not attempt to service this unit
yourself. All servicing should be provided by authorized service personnel when:
A. The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged, or
B. Objects have fallen or liquid has spilled into the unit, or
C. The unit has been exposed to rain, or
D. The unit does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance, or
E. The unit has been dropped or the cabinet damaged.

Setting Up
Unpack the carton
Carefully unpack the carton. Do not attempt to use the Wave® radio if any part appears
damaged. Instead, repack the carton and notify Bose® or your authorized Bose dealer immediately.
It is best to place the radio across the room from where you will be listening. Place the radio on
a table or other flat surface. Do not put it on a metal surface or table that could interfere with
AM reception. If you will use the radio with your television or VCR, do not place it on top of the
television. It may interfere with the picture quality.
Locate the power cord, AA batteries, remote control, and lithium battery.

The Wave radio’s three AA batteries maintain the memory and backup alarm system for up to a
week during a power failure, or while the radio is unplugged. Operating without batteries leaves
the memory unprotected, but will not harm the radio. Use AA batteries (IEC-R6 in Europe),
available at many retail stores.
Note: The batteries will not power the radio or
light the display.

Note:
Install the battery
Your Wave® radio remote control has a security lock to prevent children from reaching the small
battery. Follow these steps to insert or remove the battery.
1.
Place the remote control upside down and face down (as shown in Figure 4a).
2.
Insert the tip of a pen into the small hole in the security lock (Figure 4a). If your pen does
not have a long fine point, you can use a straightened paper clip instead.
3.
Tilt the pen to push the lock in the direction shown by the arrow in Figure 4b. Push the
lock until the battery compartment clicks open.
Replace only with a Duracell,
Eveready, Maxell, or Toshiba
CR2032 or DL2032 lithium battery
(available at most electronics
stores). If you have difficulty finding
a replacement battery, contact
Bose® Customer Service (see
phone numbers on the inside back
cover).
Note: If you have difficulty getting the lock to click open, use the pen to hold the lock to
the side while pulling the battery carrier out. You can place a thin coin or other object in
the battery carrier slot to help pull the battery carrier out.

How to operate
The remote control battery may
cause a fire or chemical burn if
mishandled. Keep it away from
children. Do not recharge,
disassemble, heat above 100˚C
(212˚F), or incinerate. Dispose of
used battery promptly. Replace
with a battery of the type and
model mentioned in the note
above. Using another battery may
cause a fire or explosion.
Aim the remote control at your Wave radio. Use the remote keys in the same way you use the
radio control panel. The remote normally works up to 20 feet in front of the radio, and 6 feet to
either side. Replace the remote control battery when it stops operating, or its range seems
reduced (normally every year or two).

Other Components
Connecting other components
Use your Wave® radio to improve the sound of a CD player, cassette player, or TV. You can also
use your radio as extension speakers for the Bose® Lifestyle® music system. Connect one of these
components to the right and left AUX IN jacks. Or add powered Bose speakers connected to the
right and left VARIABLE OUT jacks. Audio cables for these connections are available at electronics stores, or by calling Bose.
Most audio cables are color coded. Match the red plugs to the right (red) jack and the black or
white plugs to the left (white) jack (see Figure 7).
Connecting components or speakers to the VARIABLE OUT jacks will shut off the radio’s
speakers.

Product Information
Maintaining the Wave® radio
The only necessary maintenance is periodic battery replacement and cleaning.
Replace the batteries
To protect your Wave radio’s memory and backup alarm system, replace the batteries every
year and when you have an extended power loss. Dead batteries may leak and cause damage.
Do not unplug your Wave radio from the power outlet while replacing the batteries. If you do
unplug it, you will need to reset the clock, alarm settings, and station presets. For further
information on replacing batteries, see “Install the batteries” on page 5.
For information on replacing the remote control battery, see “Install the battery” on page 7.
How to clean
Use only a cloth to clean the outside of the Wave radio. Do not use any solvents, chemicals, or
cleaning solutions containing alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives. Do not allow liquids to spill into
any openings on the radio. If necessary, you may use a soft-bristled attachment to gently
vacuum the front of the radio.
For best radio reception…
The Wave radio has an internal antenna. You may adjust the antenna by turning the radio
slightly.
You may adjust the FM antenna by moving the power cord. If you still have problems with FM
reception, you may need an external antenna. Call Bose® Customer Service to request one.
