Bose Surround Speakers: For a fully immersive sound experience, add
the Bose Surround Speakers to the Bose
Soundbar 700, or
SoundTouch 300 (all sold separately). Use the Bose Music app (for
Apple iOS or Android) to setup connection with the Soundbar 500 or 700. Use the
SoundTouch 300's remote control to setup its connection. Once
connected, you have a premium acoustic setup to complement the powerful
performance of the soundbar. The Bose Surround Speakers feature a single 2"
Wireless Receivers: Two wireless receivers accompany the Surround
Speakers to facilitate a wireless connection to the Bose Soundbar 500, Soundbar
700, or SoundTouch 300; as well as amplification of the Surround Speakers. The wireless receivers comes with
20' proprietary speaker
cables that connect to the Bose Surround Speakers using the included speaker
connector adapters which plug into the back of the speakers. The wireless
receivers also come with detachable 5' AC power cords that will need to be plugged
into an AC power outlet.
Note: The wireless receivers come preset to a left and right channel out of the
box. You can use the switch on the front of the receivers to adjust the left and
right channel settings (make sure that one wireless receiver always set to left
and the other is set to right).
Mounting & Placement Options: With a wireless range of about 30' and standing
less than 4" high, the Bose Surround Speakers will blend nicely into your room.
The speakers should be placed behind the main listening area, one on the left
side and one on the right of the room, for optimum sound quality. They can be
placed on speaker stands (sold separately - see Accessories Tab), existing shelves, or
wall-mounted (proprietary brackets sold separately - see Accessories Tab).
Notes: To avoid wireless interference, keep other wireless
equipment 1' to 3' away from the wireless receivers. Place the speakers and
wireless receivers outside and away from metal cabinets, other audio/video
components and direct heat sources.
ADAPTiQ Audio Room Calibration: After you have positioned
the Bose Surround Speakers in your room, plugged them into an AC power outlet,
and connected the speakers to your Bose soundbar speaker, you'll use the ADAPTiQ headset
(supplied with the soundbar) to auto
calibrate the system.
Optional Powered Subwoofer: In addition to the Bose Surround Speakers,
you can add the Bose
Bass Module 500 or
Bass Module 700 (both sold separately) to a compatible Bose Soundbar 500/700
or SoundTouch 300 for deep, thunderous bass. Either Bass Module connects
