YOUR SL2 WIRELESS SURROUND LINK
Getting ready
Thank you for choosing a Bose® SL2 Wireless Surround Link. It provides a simple and
convenient means to enjoy the surround sound from your LIFESTYLE® system or
powered Acoustimass® system.
The SL2 features a small radio frequency transmitter and receiver pair that delivers the left
and right surround audio signals, complete with amplification, to surround speakers in the
rear of your room. Running cable from the front to the back of the room is unnecessary.
Unpacking the carton
Carefully unpack the carton and save all packing materials, which provide the most secure
way to transport the product.
Check to be sure your system includes all of the parts shown (Figure 1). If any part appears
damaged, do not attempt to use it. Notify Bose or your authorized Bose dealer immediately.
For Bose contact information, refer to the address sheet included in the carton.

YOUR SL2 WIRELESS SURROUND LINK
If you have not yet done so, now is a good time to find the serial number on the bottom of the
SL2 transmitter, then copy it in the space provided on “For your records” on page 3.
Setting the transmitter for your system
If your speakers are part of an Acoustimass® speaker system, you need to set the switch on
the bottom of the SL2 transmitter to Other (Figure 2).
Figure 2
Bottom of the
SL2 transmitter
Speaker switch
Switch
For use of a LIFESTYLE® system with the SL2 Wireless Surround Link, the current default
switch setting is optimal. There is no need to change the setting.
Important note: Running the ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system, which is provided with your
LIFESTYLE® system, helps ensure the most accurate sound from your system. Be sure to use it
after the SL2 is connected and your surround speakers are in the final position.
Choosing positions for your SL2 transmitter and receiver
Radio frequency transmissions make this product easy to place. It is seldom necessary to
point the SL2 transmitter at its receiver. This allows you to hide both from view if you like.
The SL2 transmitter, identified on the label, is also distinguished by a single input jack
(see Figure 3 on page 6). The SL2 receiver, which is also labeled, has two output jacks.
1.
Place the SL2 transmitter within 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) of the Acoustimass® module.
Make sure it is within reach of an AC (mains) outlet.
2.
Place the SL2 receiver at the same end of the room as your surround speakers.
It, too, should be within reach of an AC (mains) outlet.
Position the transmitter/receiver pair:
•
From 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) to 30 feet (9.2 meters) apart.
•
Where the sides are unobstructed to allow for ventilation.
•
Upright (neither upside down nor on a side) on the floor or other flat, stable surface.
Note: If you experience any problem with communications between the SL2 transmitter
and receiver, positioning them within line of sight to each other may be helpful. For further
suggestions on how to deal with such problems, refer to “Troubleshooting” on page 9.

YOUR SL2 WIRELESS SURROUND LINK
Connecting the SL2 receiver
Use the supplied 20-ft (6.2-m) cables to connect the speakers to the SL2 receiver. Or, you may
prefer to use the longer surround speaker cables that came with your speakers.
Note: To use the SL2 supplied cables with Jewel Cube® speakers, first attach a Jewel Cube
adapter to each cable as described in “To adapt the surround speaker cable for Jewel Cube®
speakers” on page 8.
To make the receiver connections
Using the supplied cables, follow the steps below:
1.
Insert the RCA connectors into the jacks on the back of the SL2 receiver (Figure 5).
• Connect the purple one marked RR to the purple jack labeled RR.
• Connect the green one marked LR to the green jack labeled LR.
2.
Connect the wire ends of the cable to your surround speakers.
• Insert the wire marked RR into the terminal on the speaker that is placed
on the right.
• Insert the wire marked LR into the terminal on the speaker that is placed
on the left.
For details on how to set up and make connections to your surround speakers, refer to
the owner’s guide provided with them.

the receiver, the LEDs on both units turn orange. When the two are communicating with each
other, their LEDs turn a solid green.
For an explanation of the other LED colors, refer to “What the Status LEDs indicate” on
page 8.

Using this cable with the adapters attached, follow the steps in “To make the receiver
connections” on page 7. Be sure to match each adapter to the proper speaker, right or left.
What the Status LEDs indicate
On the rear of the SL2 transmitter and receiver, the color of the Status LED indicates how
each unit is functioning. With the power pack plugged in, the LED lights as follows:
•
Blinking green: when one unit is trying to link to the other.
•
Solid orange: in sleep mode for low power use when there is no audio signal to
communicate.
•
Solid green: the receiver and transmitter are communicating with each other.
This green LED stays lit for several minutes after communications cease.
•
Blinking red: the SL2 receiver is too hot, or there is a problem with the surround speaker
cable connection between the SL2 receiver and the speakers.
For information on how to deal with a blinking red LED, see “Troubleshooting” on page 9.

Troubleshooting
Problem
What to do
Blinking red Status
LED on either the
SL2 transmitter or
receiver
• Disconnect the unit from the AC power outlet.
• Remove any possible obstruction to ventilation and reposition the unit upright with
clear space around the ventilation openings on each side. If the ventilation was
obstructed, allow the unit a few minutes to cool before reconnecting it to the AC power
outlet.
• If it continues to blink red, check the cable connection between the SL2 receiver and
the surround speakers. Make sure the connections are secure and the cable wires are
not touching each other, which can cause a short circuit. Refer to “Connecting the SL2
receiver” on page 7. Reconnect the unit to the AC power outlet.
• If it continues to blink red, unplug the unit from the power outlet and contact Bose®
Customer Service. Refer to the address list included in the SL2 carton.
No sound or
intermittent sound
• Make sure the audio source is playing and the program selected includes surround
sound audio.
• Check to be sure both the SL2 transmitter and receiver power packs are properly
plugged into functioning AC power outlets. Refer to “Making the connections” on
page 6.
• Make sure that cables are properly connected to the SL2 transmitter, the Acoustimass®
module, the SL2 receiver, and the surround speakers. The connectors must be
inserted securely in the jacks.
• Make sure the SL2 transmitter and receiver are no less than 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) and no
more than 30 feet (9.2 meters) apart.
• Locate the small opening labeled Reset on the bottom of both the SL2 transmitter and
the SL2 receiver. Using a fine-pointed tool (like a straightened paper clip), press inside
the opening on the transmitter. And, within 30 seconds, in the same way press inside
the opening on the receiver.
• Move the receiver, the transmitter, or both so the transmission path between them
does not intersect with large metal objects in your room or other obstructions (like a
fish tank full of water).
Interference with a
wireless (5.8GHz)
phone
• Increase the distance from each SL2 unit to the phone.
• Press the channel button on the phone (if one is provided) to choose a different
channel for phone transmissions.
Contacting Customer Service
For additional help in solving problems, contact Bose Customer Service. Refer to the address
sheet included in the carton.
