Purchase date:
We suggest you keep your sales receipt and warranty together with this owner's guide.
Please complete and return the warranty card included with your system.
Before
you begin
Thank you for purchasing the Bose ®Wave®Radio/CD.
Fourteen years of research by Bose Corporation bring you the benefits of award-winning
patented acoustic waveguide speaker technology. Using this technology, a tube efficiently
transfers energy from a small loudspeaker to the outside air over a whole range of bass
notes. And, by folding long waveguides into intricate patterns, they fit into products small
enough to be placed comfortably in your home. There is a 27-inch (68-cm) long waveguide
inside the Wave Radio/CD's compact enclosure, enabling this tabletop system to produce
room-filling sound with full, rich bass.
Your Wave Radio/CD includes:
•
Integrated system design for high acoustic quality requiring no complex adjustments
A high performance stereo tuner with 6 AM and 6 FM station presets
A CD player including skip, scan, random, repeat, and programming features
Two independent alarms, with battery backup power to save the settings for wakeup
during a power loss
A credit card-size infrared remote control with optional mounting strip
Inputs for an additional sound source, such as a TV, VCR, computer, or tape player
To discover how easy it is to use your new Wave Radio/CD, follow the steps on the Quick Set
Up Guide and play the demonstration CD. Like most functions, it can be done with the press
of a single button. Some special functions are available by pressing button combinations (for
details, see page 28).
To fully appreciate all of these features, please take the time to follow this owner's guide
carefully. It helps you set up and operate your system, and enjoy its high-fidelity sound.
Unpacking
the
carton
Carefully unpack your system. Save all packing materials for possible future use. The original
packing materials provide the safest way to transport your Wave®Radio/CD. If any part of the
product appears damaged, do not attempt to use it. Notify Bose®Product Support immediately (see phone numbers on the inside back cover).
Check to be sure your Wave Radio/CD contains the parts identified in Figure 1.

Selecting
a location
for your Wave Radio/CD
Please keep these guidelines in mind when selecting a location for your system:
•
Place the Wave Radio/CD on a table or other flat surface.
Do not place it on a metal surface or table that could interfere with AM reception.
Do not place it on a heat-sensitive surface. Like all electrical equipment, it generates some
heat.
Do not use the system in a damp location, it is important to prevent moisture from getting
into the unit.
Keep it at least 12 inches (30 cm) from a television, computer, or other monitor to prevent
picture quality interference.
Locate it within 2 feet of a wall for the best bass performance.
Place it across the room from where you will be listening to enjoy maximum performance
from the Wave Radio/CD.
Feel free to place and position it where you find the sound most pleasing.
Installing
the battery
The 9-volt battery maintains clock and alarm settings and operates the Wave ®Radio/CD's
backup alarm system for up to 24 hours, during a power loss or while the system is temporarily unplugged. Operating without this battery leaves the memory unprotected, but will not
harm the product.
Use a standard 9V battery (IEC 6F22 in Europe), available at most retail stores. Use an
alkaline battery for longer backup time.
Note:
The battery does not provide power for Wave Radio/CD operation or for the display.
1. Do not remove the protective transparent film with tabs from the front of the system. It
prevents the CD door from opening accidentally when you turn the system over.
2. Carefully turn your system upside down.
3. Locate the battery compartment on the bottom (Figure 2).
4. Press the arrow on the cover to slide the compartment open.
5. Match the large (-) terminal on the battery to the small terminal on the clip (which lifts out
of the compartment for easier connection).
6. Snap the terminals together firmly.
7. Slide the cover closed.
,_
Note: Now is a good time to record the serial number found on the bottom of your system.
Write it on your warranty card and in the space provided on page 3.
8. Turn the system right side up.
9. Remove the protective transparent film with tabs from the front of the system.
,_
Figure 2
Installing the battery
CAUTION: After you remove the transparent film, be sure to remove any CD before turning
the system over With no film in place, the CD cover opens freely whenever the system is
turned upside down, so a CD could fall out.
Connecting
the power
cord
1. Unwind the power cord completely to ensure the best FM reception. The FM antenna is
built into the power cord.
2. Plug the power cord into an electric outlet (Figure 3). The display panel lights and the time
display begins flashing.
3. Press and hold either Time 4 or _, button to stop the flashing and set the time.
Figure 3
Connecting the power cord
Adjusting
the antennas
With the FM antenna built into the power cord, adjusting the cord position affects FM radio
reception slightly. With the AM antenna built into the radio, turning the radio more to one side
or the other adjusts AM reception slightly.
Receiving
cable
radio
signals
as an option
To connect your system to receive the FM signal available from some cable TV companies,
contact your cable provider for assistance.
The cable screws onto threads of the FM 75_ EXTERNAL antenna connector on the back of
the Wave Radio/CD. To make this connection easier, you may want to obtain a screw-on to
push-on RF adapter (available at electronics stores).
,_
CAUTION: Make sure the installation includes a signal splitter. It is important that only the
FM band, not the cable TV band, is transmitted to the radio. This requires a splitter that filters
the signal to prevent any re-emissions of the TV spectrum through the radio.
Setting

Taking
care of your
Wave Radio/CD
The only necessary maintenance is cleaning and periodic battery replacement.
Handling
CDs
Handle discs by their edges to prevent fingerprints and scratches.
To remove stains or fingerprints from the surface of a disc, use a soft,
lint-free, dry cloth. Wipe in straight movements from the center of the
disc to the outside. Do not use any chemical products; they can
damage the disc.
Do not write on, or attach labels to the surface of the disc.
To minimize exposure to dust and dirt, replace discs in their cases
after use. Store each disc in its case, out of direct sunlight, high
temperatures, and humidity.
Cleareing
your
Wave Radio/CD
i
Use only a cloth to clean the outside of the Wave Radio/CD. If necessary, you may use a soft-bristled attachment to gently vacuum the
front of the system.
,&
Do not use any solvents, chemicals, or cleaning solutions containing
alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives. Do not spray cleaners directly on the system. Do not allow
liquids to spill into any openings on the system.
CAUTION, If liquids get into the product, turn the system off. Call Bose_ Product Support as
soon as possible to arrange for service (see phone numbers on inside back cover).
Replacing
the
batteries
To maintain your Wave Radio/CD's memory and backup alarm system, replace the 9V battery
every year or whenever you have an extended power loss. A dead battery may leak and
cause damage. Do not unplug your Wave Radio/CD from the power outlet while replacing the
battery. If you do unplug it, you will need to reset the clock and alarm settings.
Follow these steps to check the low-battery indicator:
1. Turn the system off.
2. Hold down Alarm Setup, and press CD Stop. The display indicates the remaining battery
power:
• Ni or number 78 or above mean adequate voltage to provide backup power.
Number 77 or below means limited voltage.
Lo means the voltage is too low for the battery to function. The play/pause II_ flashes
to alert you to replace the battery soon.
For further information on replacing the backup battery, see "Installing the battery" on page 6.
For information on replacing the remote control battery, see "Setting up the remote control" on
page 8.
