Before you begin
We appreciate your choice of the Bose Acoustimass 16 Series II or 15 Series III home ! entertainment speaker system. Each system features a combination of cube speaker arrays, center front speaker, and a powered Acoustimass module. Together, they reproduce the ! full-spectrum sound of multi-channel digital programming for a powerful and realistic home theater experience.
Unpacking the carton
Carefully unpack the carton contents as follows: 1. 2. Remove the brown inner carton containing the cube speaker arrays and center front speaker. Gently roll the large carton onto its side and pull out the Acoustimass module.
WARNING: To avoid injury, use care in lifting the module, which weighs 33 pounds (15 kg). Save all packing materials, which provide the best means to transport the system, for ! possible future use. If any parts appear damaged, do not use them. Instead, repack the system in the original ! carton and contact your authorized Bose dealer. Or, to contact Bose directly, refer to the address list included in the carton. Figure 1

Franais SETTING UP
Choosing locations for your speakers
Keep these guidelines in mind when choosing a location for each speaker: Select a stable and level surface for each of the small speakers. ! Vibration can cause them to move, particularly on smooth surfaces like marble, glass, or highly polished wood. To prevent this problem, rubber feet are provided for attachment to the bottom of the center front speaker. Note: You may order additional rubber feet, free of charge, by contacting Bose. Refer to the address list included in the carton. The center front speaker is for use at the front of the room and near the center of your TV. The cube speaker arrays in your system are identical and can be used interchangeably. The top and bottom cubes of each speaker array can be rotated to create ! room-filling sound patterns (b and d). All of the small speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent interference with a TV picture. The Acoustimass module should be at least 2 feet (.6 m) from your TV set to prevent ! interference. The shape and size of your room and location of the furniture in it will affect your choice of speaker locations. Use the examples below as the basis, but not the rule, for your home ! theater setup. Figure 2
Sample speaker placement (a and c) and performance results (b and d) Acoustimass 16 system a. b.

Bose wall brackets and floor or table stands expand the options for placement of your speakers. For further information, see Accessories on page 14. Note: The Acoustimass 15 Series III system is designed for use with an optional center rear cube speaker array. For further details, see Optional upgrade for your Acoustimass 15 system on page 10.
Placing the center front speaker
Sound from the center front speaker should seem to come from within the picture to give the most realistic performance of on-screen action and dialogue. Place the center front speaker above, on top of, or below your television. Do NOT rest the weight of the television on the speaker. Keep it in line with the vertical center of the screen, if possible, for the most accurate ! reproduction of dialogue (as shown in Figure 2 on page 5). CAUTION: Before placing the center front speaker on top of a television, attach the four supplied rubber feet to the bottom of the speaker. Position two of the feet near the front edge and close together on the bottom surface. Place the other two feet in the rear corners on the bottom.
Placing your left and right front speakers
The goal for these speakers is to create a sound image that is wider than the screen and seems natural to viewers sitting anywhere in the room. Place the front cube speaker arrays on either side of your TV. Keep them from 6 feet (2 m) to 15 feet (5 m) apart (as shown in Figure 2 on page 5).
Placing your rear speakers
While the rear (surround) speakers may deliver some dialogue, they serve primarily to ! deliver discrete sounds and special effects that expand the visual image. They help bring the viewer into the center of the action. Choose locations that are practical and convenient, while considering these recommended guidelines: Position the left and right rear cube speaker arrays so they can deliver sound on both sides of the viewer, rather than from directly behind (as shown in Figure 2 on page 5). Place these speakers at the same height as the ears of a seated viewer or higher. Rotate the top and bottom cubes of each speaker to direct the sound to both the front ! and the back of listeners. If your system has a center rear speaker, position it halfway between the rear left and right speakers (as shown in Figure 2 on page 5).
Placing your Acoustimass module
Bose Acoustimass speaker technology makes it difficult to locate the source of ! low-frequency sound from this module. So feel free to hide it from view, and: Locate the module at the same end of the room as the television screen. Keep the module at least 2 feet (.6 m) from your TV set to prevent interference. To increase bass effects, turn the front opening toward a wall; turn it away from the wall to decrease bass effects. Keep both the front opening and the ventilation grille on the bottom of the module at least ! 2 inches (5 cm) from any other surface. Do not block the ventilation grille located on the bottom of the module. ! Impeding ventilation can cause a reduction in the bass-frequency output from the module. Figure 3

Making the connections
Only the Acoustimass module connects to your receiver. The small center front speaker and cube speaker arrays connect directly to the Acoustimass module. WARNING: Connecting the small speakers to a receiver can result in damage to your system and possible electric shock.
Connecting speakers to the Acoustimass module
Insert the connector on each speaker cable into the jack on the module. Refer to the label on each connector to match it to the proper jack. Figure 4

Use the supplied 20-foot (6.1 m) speaker cables for the three front speakers. Insert the connectors, as labeled, into jacks on the module as follows! (Figure 5 on page 8). R goes into the jack labeled Right Front. C goes into the jack labeled Center Front. L goes into the gray jack labeled Left Front.
Franais SETTING UP 2.
Use the supplied 50-ft (15.2 m) speaker cables for the speakers at the rear of your room (Figure 5). Insert them into the jacks on the module as follows: RR goes into the jack labeled Right Rear. CR goes into the jack labeled Center Rear. This speaker is provided only with an Acoustimass 16 system. LR goes into the jack labeled Left Rear.
At the other end of each cable, insert the red collared (+) wire into the red (+) terminal on one speaker. Insert the other wire into the other terminal (Figure 5). Notice a label on each red collared wire that matches it to the proper speaker: L for the speaker at the left front R for the speaker at the right front C for the speaker at the center front LR for the speaker at the left rear RR for the speaker at the right rear CR for the speaker at the center rear

Connecting the Acoustimass module to the receiver
The system input cable is 20 feet (6.1 meter) long and connects the Acoustimass module to your surround sound receiver. Unlike the speaker cables, this input cable has a multi-pin ! connector that inserts into the Audio Input jack on the module (Figure 6). Figure 6
System input cable connectors Module input jack

At the other end of the system input cable, multiple wire pairs that unzip for easy reach and insertion into terminals on your receiver (Figure 7). A red collar marks a wire as positive (+). CAUTION: Do NOT connect your module to the TV, which lacks the required amplification. The single RCA connector at that end is for use ONLY with a receiver that handles ! low-frequency effects and provides an LFE/SUBWOOFER jack (Figure 7). Figure 7
Unzipping the paired wires RCA connector for LFE only Wire pair
CAUTION: Before making these connections, turn off your receiver to prevent unwanted noises when you plug the Acoustimass module into it. To make the connections (Figure 8 on page 10): 1. 2. Insert the multi-pin connector on the system input cable into the input jack on the ! Acoustimass module. Tighten the two thumbscrews to secure the connection. Connect each wire pair on the other end of the system input cable to your surround receiver, which should have audio output terminals labeled: Right, Left, Center for the front audio channels Right Surround, Left Surround, and possibly Center Surround for the rear channels. ! The specific labels on your receiver may differ slightly. CAUTION: Do not allow exposed wires to brush against each other; this could damage your receiver. 3. Carefully match the polarity of the connections (+ to + and to ). Attach each red-collared wire (+) to the appropriate + terminal. Attach each plain wire () to the appropriate terminal. 4. If applicable to your receiver, insert the RCA plug marked LFE on the system input cable into the LFE/SUBWOOFER OUT jack on your surround receiver. Remove the cover first.

Checking and finalizing connections
Before plugging in the Acoustimass module, check all connections from the receiver to the the module and the module to the small speakers (Figure 5 on page 8 and Figure 8). Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their position in your room. Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity (+ to + and to wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output. Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on. When all the connections check out, plug the power cord from the Acoustimass module into an AC (mains) outlet. Plug in the receiver also. Note: Bose recommends using a quality surge suppressor on all electronics equipment. Voltage variations and spikes can damage electronic components in any system. Using a highquality suppressor (available at electronics stores) can eliminate the vast majority of failures caused by a power surge.
Optional upgrade for your Acoustimass 15 system
Your Acoustimass 15 Series III speaker system can be upgraded to provide you with 6.1- ! or 6-channel surround sound. The 6.1 upgrade kit contains one cube speaker array, a 50-foot (15.2 m) connecting cable, and complete connection instructions. To purchase the 6.1 upgrade kit in the same color as your current system, contact your local authorized Bose retailer. Or to contact Bose directly, see the address list included in the ! carton. When ordering, you will need to provide the serial number of your Acoustimass module. ! Refer to For your records on page 2 if you recorded the number there. If not, you can locate the number on the rear of the module near the connection panel.
Getting the most from your home theater speakers
With system connections completed and the module plugged in, your Acoustimass system is now ready for use. You may want to familiarize yourself with the controls and built-in protections that adjust ! the audio of this system (Figure 9). They offer options to suit your particular style of use and ! preferences. CAUTION: This system provides an automatic protection circuit to help guard against damage from electrical stresses and overload of the system. At high volume levels, the circuit activates to reduce output, which slightly decreases the volume. If you notice this decrease, be aware that your system is functioning as designed. This volume reduction also indicates that power input to the system may exceed safe levels. Sustained listening at these levels is not recommended. Figure 9
Audio adjustment knobs
Adjusting the bass/room compensation
After placing the Acoustimass module where you want it, you can fine-tune it for that ! location. Make this adjustment only as necessary. For example: If the system performance is thin or lacks bass, turn the BASS control (shown above) clockwise to increase the low-frequency output of the module. If the audio is boomy or overemphasizes bass, turn the knob counter-clockwise ! to reduce the low-frequency output of the module. The setting made at the factory is meant for use in the most common room arrangements.
Adjusting the LFE level
The LFE (low-frequency effects) level control (shown above) is for use only with receivers that provide an LFE/SUBWOOFER channel. By turning the knob, you can adjust the relative level of the low-frequency effects from movie soundtracks. Use it to match the volume level of the LFE channel with volume levels of your other speaker channels. You can check all levels by using the test tones feature on your digital surround sound receiver. For details on using this feature, refer to the owners guide provided with your ! surround receiver.
