Select the locations for your Lifestyle 5 music system
When you place your speakers according to the guidelines below, a combination of reflected and direct sound provides a good stereo image virtually everywhere in the room. You may experiment with the placement and orientation of the cubes and the Acoustimass module to produce the sound most pleasing to you. To adjust your system for the characteristics of your listening room, see Fine-tuning your system on page 23.

Speaker locations

Follow these guidelines to select locations for your Lifestyle 5 music system. The speaker cables allow up to 20 feet (6.1 m) distance from the Acoustimass module. CAUTION: Choose a stable and level surface for your speakers. Vibration can cause the speakers to move, particularly on smooth surfaces like marble, glass, or highly polished wood. For additional stability, you can add rubber feet to your speakers. You may obtain rubber feet (part no. 178321), free of charge, from Bose. Contact Bose Customer Service (see listings on the inside back cover). 1. For the most lifelike sound, place the cube arrays 6-12 feet (1.8-3.6 m) apart. They can be as close as 3 feet (1 m) or as far apart as 15 feet (4.6 m). 2. Direct one cube of each array forward. Direct the other cube toward the wall or in a different direction to create reflected sound. (See the illustration of reflected sound patterns in Figure 2.)

Note: The cube speakers are magnetically shielded so you can place them close to a TV without affecting picture quality. Note: If you put the speakers in a bookcase unit, be sure to place each one at the front edge of the shelf. Placing speakers in an enclosed space can change the tonal quality of the sound. This effect is minimized if the shelves are filled with books.

Setting Up Acoustimass module
Follow these guidelines to select a location for the Acoustimass module. Note: To avoid interference with the TV picture, place the Acoustimass module at least 18 inches (45 cm) from a TV. 1. Place the module along the same the wall as the speakers, if possible (Figure 2). 2. Select a convenient location under a table, behind a sofa. Do not allow furniture or drapes to block the ventilation openings of the module. 3. Place the module within reach of the audio input cable, speaker cables, and an AC power (mains) outlet. 4. Select a position for the Acoustimass module (Figure 3). For proper ventilation, place it on the long edge, with the connectors facing the floor. An alternate position is on its largest side, with the bass and treble controls facing up. Do not place the module on either end, as shown by the last two views in Figure 3.

Figure 3

Acoustimass module positions

Preferred position

Treble Bass

Alternate position



5. Once you have selected a position for the module, place the four self-adhesive rubber feet near the corners of the bottom surface. The rubber feet provide increased stability and protection from scratches. 6. Aim the port (the round opening) into the room or along the wall to avoid blocking the port or creating too much bass. 7. For best bass performance, do not place the port at equal distances from any two walls or from a wall and the ceiling.
CAUTION: Do not cover the ventilation openings of the Acoustimass module. The slots on the end provide ventilation for the built-in electronic circuitry, and should not be blocked.

Music center

Select a location for the music center. 1. Allow enough room to open the CD player cover. 2. Place the music center close enough to any additional sound sources (TV, VCR, etc.) to allow for cable length. If you need additional audio and/or video cables to connect all of your components, see your dealer or call Bose. 3. Place the music center within 30 feet (9.1 m) of the Acoustimass module (the length of the audio input cable).
Note: Since some TVs can interfere with the proper operation of a CD player or tuner, you may want to avoid placing the music center directly on top of your TV.
Connect the speakers and Lifestyle music center

Once you have selected locations for your music system, connect the speakers. CAUTION: Make sure all components are unplugged from the power outlet before you begin hooking up the system.
Connecting the cube speaker arrays to the Acoustimass module
Each speaker cable contains two wires. The wire marked with a red collar is positive (+) and the plain one is negative (). These wires match the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals on the back of each speaker. To lengthen the cable, use standard RCA extension cables or splice in 18-gauge or thicker cord (connecting + to + and to ). To purchase cables, see your dealer, electronics store, or call Bose customer service. 1. Match the correct cable to the corresponding speaker location. Speaker cables have blue connectors at one end, with L and R molded into the connectors. The red collars on the + wire are labeled LEFT and RIGHT. 2. Connect the wire end of one speaker cable to the terminals on the rear of the matching cube speaker array. a. Push each terminal tab down, then insert the end of the appropriate wire into the exposed hole. Release the tab to secure the wire. Connect each wire to its corresponding terminal positive to positive (+ to +) and negative to negative ( to ). b. Repeat this step for each of the cube speaker arrays. (See Figure 4.)

Figure 4

Speaker cable connections to the cube speaker array
CAUTION: Make sure no strands of wire from any terminal touch any other terminal. Bridged wires create short circuits that affect proper operation of your system.
3. Connect each cable to the corresponding left or right blue jack on the Acoustimass module.

Video components

To play video sound through your Lifestyle music system, connect the R and L audio outputs (fixed outputs preferred) of your stereo TV, stereo VCR, DVD, or laserdisc player to the music center VIDEO SOUND input jacks. You can use a Y-adapter (available at electronics stores) to connect a mono source. However, the left and right speakers then play the same monaural sound. Your TV is the display for the video (picture) signal. The video signal should not be connected to the Lifestyle music system.
Note: To ensure proper stereo sound, connect the L and R audio outputs from your stereo VCR directly to your music center L and R VIDEO SOUND inputs. If you prefer to connect the audio outputs from your TV to the music center, be sure to use the L and R audio outputs and the video output from the VCR to the TV, in addition to coaxial cable.Then, for proper playback of stereo-encoded video tapes, use the TV remote control to select the correct TV inputs (for example, change from ANTENNA A to VIDEO 1 to receive the sound transmitted through the L and R connections). See your TV owners manual for assistance.

Other connections

Tape deck To use an external tape recorder (analog audio cassette, analog open reel, digital audio tape, Digital Compact Cassette, or MiniDisc), connect the inputs from the tape deck to the music center TAPE REC OUTPUT jacks. Connect the outputs from the tape deck to the music center TAPE PLAY INPUT jacks, matching the red plug to R (right) and black or white plug to L (left). CD changer, CDI player, DVD player, or laserdisc player To use one of these components, connect its audio outputs to the music center AUX INPUT jacks, matching the red plug to R (right) and black or white plug to L (left). Turntable To connect a turntable, you may need a phono preamplifier (with RIAA equalization). Consult your dealer for the appropriate model. Connect the audio outputs of the phono preamplifier to the music center AUX INPUT jacks, matching the red plug to R (right) and black or white plug to L (left).
Note: The Lifestyle music system cannot turn a connected component on or off.

Compensating for room acoustics
The acoustics (sound qualities) of your room can affect the overall sound quality of any speaker system. In general, you can reduce many problems with acoustics by the cautious use of the TREBLE and BASS controls.
Too much or too little treble Rooms with too few sound-absorbing furnishings, especially those with bare floors and walls, may sound overly shrill or bright. Turning down the treble control (toward ) decreases treble sound.
Rooms with a lot of sound-absorbing furnishings, such as upholstered furniture, wall-to-wall carpet, or heavy drapes, may reduce the treble sound of your system. Moving speakers further away from soft furnishings increases treble. You can increase treble sound by slightly turning up the treble control (toward +).
Too much or too little bass You can decrease bass sound by turning down the bass control (toward ). To increase bass, turn up the bass control (toward +).
Acoustimass module placement affects the amount of bass you hear. Placing the module closer to the corner of the room increases bass. Moving the module away from the corner decreases bass.
Changing the house code settings
Each Lifestyle remote control uses a system of matching house codes to communicate with its corresponding music center. If your remotes commands ever conflict with those of another nearby Lifestyle system, you can easily set a new house code for your system and its remote control(s) by following the procedures below. 1. Open the remote control battery cover. 2. Locate the miniature switches (Figure 22). Change the position of switch 2, 3, or 4 by moving it in the opposite direction from its current setting.
Note: Do not change any other switches at this time.
3. Replace the battery cover on the remote control. 4. Press the OFF key on the console. 5. Open the CD cover. 6. Press the STORE key. The display will begin to flash . 7.
