Note: For information on the meaning of the different Status LED lights, refer to Check the indicators and settings on page 8.
Choosing a place for each unit
Place the transmitter in the same room with the LIFESTYLE system media center. Place the receiver in the same room with your Bose link expansion product. Note: Use of the audio link with products that are not Bose link compatible requires an adapter cable. For further information, refer to Instructions for non-Bose or older Bose products on page 7. Considerations for positioning: Place each unit upright with all feet flat on a level surface, such as a floor, table, or shelf. Do not tip either unit on its side. Place each unit within 7 feet (2 meters) of the product to which it is connected (using the supplied Bose link A cable). Keep the two units within 80 feet (24 meters) of each other. SBe aware that the strongest signal direction is above and around, not below, the transmitter.

Making the connections

You can connect one transmitter and up to 8 receivers for each LIFESTYLE system. The transmitter and receiver each use one of the two supplied Bose link A cables, which are 7 feet (2 meters) long. Each unit also connects to power using one of the two supplied power packs. Note: Instructions for use with a non-Bose tuner/receiver vary slightly from those below. For details, refer to Instructions for non-Bose or older Bose products on page 7.

For the transmitter

1. 2. Connect one end of a Bose link A cable to the jack labeled Bose link INPUT on the transmitter connection panel. Connect the other end of the cable to the Bose link speaker jack, below the Main Speaker jack, on the LIFESTYLE media center connection panel (Figure 3).

Instructions for non-Bose or older Bose products
The Bose link AL8 Homewide Wireless Audio Link also works with some products that are not Bose link compatible. You can use non-Bose products in the following ways: A tuner/receiver as a sound source connected to the transmitter or in an expansion room connected to the receiver Powered speakers connected to the receiver You can use older Bose products as follows: Powered speakers, a radio, or system with its own volume and on/off controls and linelevel female RCA input jacks connected to the receiver Any of the above products require the use of an RCA to DIN adapter cable for connecting to the transmitter, the receiver, or both. An adapter kit, which contains two of these cables, is available from Bose. Note: To order the adapter kit, contact Bose and request Part Number 285320-207. For Bose contact information, refer to the address sheet included in the carton. To use an adapter cable The RCA connectors are color coded, red for right and white for left. 1. 2. Insert the adapter cable DIN connector into the Bose link jack on the transmitter (INPUT) or receiver (OUTPUT) jack, as appropriate. Insert the adapter cable RCA connectors into the Audio Out jack on the connection panel of the audio source or the Audio In jack on the expansion room product. Match left to left and right to right.

Complete the connections using the power pack: Insert the small plug on the power pack cable into the AC Power jack. Plug the pack into an AC wall outlet.
The Status LED lights to verify this power connection. Note: For information on the meaning of the different Status LED lights, refer to Check the indicators and settings below. To control volume when a non-Bose product is the sound source: There is no need for an expansion room remote control. Use the remote that came with the tuner/receiver in the room where it is connected to the transmitter. Use the volume control on the system, radio, or powered speakers connected to the receiver in the other room. To control non-Bose or older Bose products in the expansion room: Use a Bose link remote control or the PERSONAL music center II to select audio from the LIFESTYLE system in the main room. Use the product remote or console control for local volume adjustments.
Check the indicators and settings
Before you use the audio link, you may want to check some of the indicators and settings that make your expansion products work together smoothly.

The Status LED

On the connection panel of both the transmitter and the receiver, the Status LED indicates how the two units are communicating, as shown in the table below.

Status LED On the transmitter On the receiver Blinking Green Searching for receiver Searching for transmitter Solid Green Receiver located Solid signal received Blinking Orange Not applicable Weak signal received Solid Orange Powered on, no communication Weak or no signal received
On the receiver, a blinking or solid orange light indicates a communications problem. Repositioning the transmitter or receiver, or both, may resolve the problem and cause both LEDs to change to solid green. For further information, refer to Troubleshooting on page 10.
The transmitter Channel button
You can use the Channel button to narrow the selection of frequencies the transmitter uses. The transmitter is factory set to avoid WiFi channel 6. This helps prevent performance problems, such as slow or intermittent data transmissions, on a wireless network. If you have a wireless network set up on another channel, you can set up your transmitter to avoid that channel, or you can move the WiFi network to channel 6. To reserve a channel for use by your WiFi network: 1. 2. 3. Press and hold the Channel button for more than 3 seconds to reach the setting for NO WIFI NETWORK. The Status LED blinks red three times to confirm this move. In the grouping below, locate the channel used by your nearby WiFi network: NO WIFI NETWORK.6.11.1.2.3.4.5.7.8.9.10. Count the number of forward moves it takes from the NO WIFI NETWORK setting to reach your WiFi network channel. For example, if your WiFi network uses channel 3, you need to move forward 5 times to reserve channel 3 for WiFi network use only. Press the Channel button for less than 3 seconds for each forward move. Repeat as many times as needed to reach the channel you want to reserve. The Status LED will blink red to confirm each move.
If the WiFi network channel is unknown to you, use the Channel button to switch off one channel at a time. Test the WiFi network to see which setting gives you the best effect. If you do not have a WiFi network in your home: Follow Step 1 above to use the entire frequency band and maximize transmitter performance.
Your Bose link expansion room remote control
Room code If you have more than one LIFESTYLE system expansion room, make sure the remote used in each one has a unique room code. House code The house code setting on the remote must match the setting on your LIFESTYLE system. It may not match if you changed the system house code due to interference with another system. For information on these house code and room code settings and how to change them, refer to the owners guide that came with your remote. Note: Setup codes for the transmitter and receiver, which must be identical to each other, do NOT need to match house codes on the remote or LIFESTYLE system.

Your Bose link expansion room product
Room code Make sure the system, amplifier, or powered speaker room code setting matches that of the remote you are using in the expansion room. For information on room code settings and how to change them, refer to the owners guide that came with your Bose link product.
Enjoy your wireless entertainment
With the settings confirmed, your Bose link AL8 Homewide Wireless Audio Link is ready for use. To explore and enjoy all of the capabilities provided by your expansion products, refer to the owners guide provided with each product.

Troubleshooting

Problem No sound What to do For both the transmitter and the receiver, make sure: the audio source is plugged in, turned on, and working. the Bose link A cable is securely connected at both ends. Refer to Making the connections on page 6. the small connector end of the power cord is inserted firmly into the AC Power jack on the connection panel and the power pack is plugged securely into a working AC outlet. the Setup code switches on the connection panel of the transmitter and the receiver are set identically. There are four options: 1 & 2 up; 1 & 2 down; 1 up & 2 down; 1 down & 2 up. the Status LEDs are lit a solid green to indicate solid communication between the two parts. If not, refer to the next Problem in this table. For the expansion room products, make sure: the system, amplifier, or powered speaker is plugged in and turned on. On an SA-2 or SA-3 amplifier in that room, make sure the status LED is lit to indicate the amplifier is working. the room code is set on the Bose link remote control or PERSONAL music center II to match the room codes on the amplifier or powered speaker and are unique to this expansion room. the house code is set on the Bose link remote control or PERSONAL music center II to match the house code of the LIFESTYLE system in the main room. Move the receiver and transmitter closer together. Move the receiver, the transmitter, or both so the transmission path between them does not intersect with large metal objects (like a refrigerator), impervious construction materials (like thick masonry) or other obstructions (like a pool of water). Check to see if the Status LEDs turn green as a result of the above efforts. For details, refer to Check the indicators and settings on page 8. For interference with a Wifi network, use the Channel button on the connection panel of the transmitter to alleviate the problem. For details, refer to The transmitter Channel button on page 9. For interference with a telephone, TV or other electronic device, move the transmitter or receiver farther from the device. Reposition the transmitter so it is in a more open area. Move the receiver farther from the microwave.

Above problem persists and the Status LED lights are not solid green
Interference with a WiFi network, telephone, TV, or other electronic device Interference from a microwave oven

Franais REFERENCE

Sound heard in the expansion room is not coming from your media center or audio source Unexpected sound from the media center
Change the Setup code switches on both the transmitter and the receiver, making sure they are identical. This may prevent signals from another AL8 transmitter in the vicinity from reaching your receiver. There are four possible switch combinations: 1 & 2 up (as set at the factory); 1 & 2 down; 1 up & 2 down; 1 down & 2 up. Change the house code settings in both your LIFESTYLE system and any remote controls you are using with it. This may prevent another nearby LIFESTYLE system from affecting the operation of your system. For further information on house codes and how to change them, refer to the owners guides that came with your LIFESTYLE system and Bose link remote controls.

To control volume when a non-Bose product is the sound source: There is no need for an expansion room remote control. Use the remote that came with the tuner/receiver in the room where it is connected to the transmitter. Use the volume control on the system, radio, or powered speakers connected to the receiver in the other room. To control non-Bose or older Bose products in the expansion room: Use a Bose link remote control or the PERSONAL music center II to select audio from the LIFESTYLE system in the main room. Use the product remote or console control for local volume adjustments.

Check the indicators and settings
Before you use the audio link, you may want to check some of the indicators and settings that make your expansion products work together smoothly.

The Status LED

On the connection panel of both the transmitter and the receiver, the Status LED indicates how the two units are communicating, as shown in the table below. Status LED On the transmitter On the receiver Blinking Green Searching for receiver Searching for transmitter Solid Green Receiver located Solid signal received Blinking Orange Not applicable Weak signal received Solid Orange Powered on, no communication Weak or no signal received
On the receiver, a blinking or solid orange light indicates a communications problem. Repositioning the transmitter or receiver, or both, may resolve the problem and cause both LEDs to change to solid green. For further information, refer to Troubleshooting on page 10.
The transmitter Channel button
You can use the Channel button to narrow the selection of frequencies the transmitter uses. The transmitter is factory set to avoid WiFi channel 6. This helps prevent performance problems, such as slow or intermittent data transmissions, on a wireless network. If you have a wireless network set up on another channel, you can set up your transmitter to avoid that channel, or you can move the WiFi network to channel 6. To reserve a channel for use by your WiFi network: 1. 2. 3. Press and hold the Channel button for more than 3 seconds to reach the setting for NO WIFI NETWORK. The Status LED blinks red three times to confirm this move. In the grouping below, locate the channel used by your nearby WiFi network: NO WIFI NETWORK.6.11.1.2.3.4.5.7.8.9.10. Count the number of forward moves it takes from the NO WIFI NETWORK setting to reach your WiFi network channel. For example, if your WiFi network uses channel 3, you need to move forward 5 times to reserve channel 3 for WiFi network use only. Press the Channel button for less than 3 seconds for each forward move. Repeat as many times as needed to reach the channel you want to reserve. The Status LED will blink red to confirm each move.
If the WiFi network channel is unknown to you, use the Channel button to switch off one channel at a time. Test the WiFi network to see which setting gives you the best effect. If you do not have a WiFi network in your home: Follow Step 1 above to use the entire frequency band and maximize transmitter performance.

Your Bose link expansion room remote control
Room code If you have more than one LIFESTYLE system expansion room, make sure the remote used in each one has a unique room code. House code The house code setting on the remote must match the setting on your LIFESTYLE system. It may not match if you changed the system house code due to interference with another system. For information on these house code and room code settings and how to change them, refer to the owners guide that came with your remote. Note: Setup codes for the transmitter and receiver, which must be identical to each other, do NOT need to match house codes on the remote or LIFESTYLE system.

Refer to Making the connections on page 6. the small connector end of the power cord is inserted firmly into the AC Power jack on the connection panel and the power pack is plugged securely into a working AC outlet. the Setup code switches on the connection panel of the transmitter and the receiver are set identically. There are four options: 1 & 2 up; 1 & 2 down; 1 up & 2 down; 1 down & 2 up. the Status LEDs are lit a solid green to indicate solid communication between the two parts. If not, refer to the next Problem in this table. For the expansion room products, make sure: the system, amplifier, or powered speaker is plugged in and turned on. On an SA-2 or SA-3 amplifier in that room, make sure the status LED is lit to indicate the amplifier is working. the room code is set on the Bose link remote control or PERSONAL music center II to match the room codes on the amplifier or powered speaker and are unique to this expansion room. the house code is set on the Bose link remote control or PERSONAL music center II to match the house code of the LIFESTYLE system in the main room. Move the receiver and transmitter closer together. Move the receiver, the transmitter, or both so the transmission path between them does not intersect with large metal objects (like a refrigerator), impervious construction materials (like thick masonry) or other obstructions (like a pool of water). Check to see if the Status LEDs turn green as a result of the above efforts. For details, refer to Check the indicators and settings on page 8. For interference with a Wifi network, use the Channel button on the connection panel of the transmitter to alleviate the problem. For details, refer to The transmitter Channel button on page 9. For interference with a telephone, TV or other electronic device, move the transmitter or receiver farther from the device. Reposition the transmitter so it is in a more open area. Move the receiver farther from the microwave.

Above problem persists and the Status LED lights are not solid green
Interference with a WiFi network, telephone, TV, or other electronic device Interference from a microwave oven

Franais REFERENCE

Sound heard in the expansion room is not coming from your media center or audio source Unexpected sound from the media center
Change the Setup code switches on both the transmitter and the receiver, making sure they are identical. This may prevent signals from another AL8 transmitter in the vicinity from reaching your receiver. There are four possible switch combinations: 1 & 2 up (as set at the factory); 1 & 2 down; 1 up & 2 down; 1 down & 2 up. Change the house code settings in both your LIFESTYLE system and any remote controls you are using with it. This may prevent another nearby LIFESTYLE system from affecting the operation of your system.

Technical specifications

Full description

The Bose link AL8 homewide wireless audio link is the easiest way to expand your Lifestyle system to additional rooms. This transmitter and receiver package delivers two independent audio streams from your system to Bose link-enabled products in another room. All without running room-to-room wires. Wherever you listen, you'll have the benefits of the Lifestyle system with you. One connection from the transmitter to your Lifestyle system media center sets the foundation for a house full of sound. All that's left is to connect the receiver to a second-room speaker system. You'll also receive audio from any components connected to your Lifestyle system. The key technology for this homewide wireless audio solution is Bose's proprietary Free Field circuitry. It enables the Bose link AL8 to operate efficiently in the presence of signals from cordless phones, wireless Internet connections and other devices. And it helps deliver Bose quality sound throughout your home, without interruption, and with low transmission latency. This virtually eliminates the echo effect heard when a wireless signal plays back much later than the original. The transmitter and receiver work through most walls and floors, and operate from up to 80' away. Individual AR1 receivers (purchased separately) can be placed in seven additional rooms for wireless audio transmission from a single AL8 transmitter.
