Setting Up Your Wave® Radio
Before you begin
Thank you for purchasing the Bose® Wave radio.
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 37-inch (93.5-cm) long waveguide inside the
Wave radio’s enclosure, enabling this tabletop radio to produce room-filling sound with full,
deep bass.
Your Wave radio also 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
• Two independent alarms, with battery backup power to save the settings for wakeup during
power loss
• A credit card-size infrared remote control with optional mounting strip
• Inputs for an additional sound source, such as a CD or tape player
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 radio and enjoy its high-fidelity sound.

Setting Up Your Wave® Radio
Installing the battery
WARNING: Keep the remote control battery away from children. It may cause a fire or chemical burn if mishandled. Do not recharge, disassemble, heat above 100˚C (212˚F), or incinerate. Dispose of used battery promptly. Replace only with a battery of the correct type and
model number.
The 9V battery maintains clock and alarm settings and operates the Wave radio’s alarm system for approximately 48 hours during a power loss, or while the radio is temporarily
unplugged. Operating without this battery results in the loss of clock and alarm settings, and
station presets in the event of a power loss, but does not harm the radio.
Use a standard 9V battery (IEC 6F22 in Europe), available at most retail stores.
Note: The battery does not provide power for Wave radio operation or for the display.
1.
Carefully turn your radio upside down.
2.
Locate the battery compartment on the bottom (Figure 2).
3.
Press the arrow on the cover to slide the compartment open.
4.
Lift the battery clip out of the compartment and align it with the battery as shown.
5.
Snap the terminals together firmly.
6.
Place the battery in the compartment and slide the cover closed. Then turn the radio right
side up.

Setting Up Your Wave® Radio
Connecting the power cord
1.
Untie and straighten the bundled power cord completely to ensure the best FM reception. The FM antenna is built into the power cord.
2.
Plug the small end of the power cord into the power jack on the back of your radio (Figure
3). The connector is shaped to fit in only one direction. Line up the flat edge of the plug
with the flat edge on the side of the jack.
3.
Plug the other end of the power cord into an electric outlet. The display panel lights and
the time display begins flashing.
4.
Press the Clock Set button once to stop the flashing. See “Setting the time” on page 17
to set the clock.

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 radio to the FM signal available from some cable TV companies, contact
your cable provider for assistance.
The cable screws onto threads of the FM 75Ω EXTERNAL antenna connector on the back of
the Wave radio (Figure 3). To make this connection easier, you may want to obtain a screw-on
to push-on RF adapter (available at electronic 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. It is necessary to use a splitter that
filters the signal to prevent any re-emissions of the TV spectrum through the radio.

Operating Your Wave® Radio
Operating the remote control
You can use the remote control (Figure 8) to operate the most frequently used functions of the
radio and alarms. Aim the remote control at the display of your Wave radio. Use the remote
buttons in the same way you use the radio control panel. The remote normally works up to 20
feet (6.1 m) in front of the radio, and 6 feet (1.8 m) to either side. Replace the remote control
battery when it stops operating, or its range seems reduced (normally every year or two).
Keep in mind that lighting and other room conditions, in addition to battery age, can affect the
operating range of an infrared remote control.

Most of the functions of the clock and the radio are operated by similar buttons on the control
panel or the remote control (Figure 9). You can access additional functions by pressing two
control panel buttons simultaneously (such as both Tuning buttons to display the station),
which requires a separate button on the remote (Station).

Maintaining Your Wave® Radio
Taking care of your Wave radio
The only necessary maintenance is periodic battery replacement and cleaning.
Cleaning your radio
Use only a dry cloth to clean the outside of the Wave radio. If necessary, you may use a softbristled attachment to gently vacuum the front of the 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 liquids get into the product, turn the radio off. Call Bose® Customer Service as soon as possible to arrange for service. (See phone numbers on inside back cover.)
Replacing the batteries
WARNING: Keep the remote control battery away from children. It may cause a fire or chemical burn if mishandled. Do not recharge, disassemble, heat above 100˚C (212˚F), or incinerate. Dispose of used battery promptly. Replace only with a battery of the correct type and
model number.
To ensure correct operation of your Wave radio’s alarm system, replace the 9V battery every
year and following an extended power loss. A dead battery may leak and cause damage. Do
not unplug your Wave radio from the power outlet while replacing the battery. If you do
unplug it, you will need to reset the clock, alarm settings, and station presets. For further
information on replacing the 9V battery, see “Installing the battery” on page 9.
For information on replacing the remote control battery, see “Setting up the remote control”
on page 11.
