Introduction

System Setup

Step 1: Place the system

A.

Move your TV aside and turn it so you

A

 

can see the connection panel.

 

B.

Place the Solo system where you had

 

 

your TV.

 

B

Placement guidelines:

• The Bose Solo system is designed to fit under TVs that weigh no more than 40 lb (18 kg) and have bases no wider than 20" (508 mm) and no deeper than 10¼" (260 mm). Many 42" and most 32" TVs and smaller meet these requirements.

The base of your TV should be centered on the top of the system and must not hang over any of its edges.

If the TV base is too large to fit on top of the system, place the sound system in another location such as on an open shelf under the TV, but keep it close to your TV so the audio cable will reach. You also could mount your TV on the wall above the system.

If placing the sound system in a cabinet, or on a shelf, position the front of the system as close as possible to the front edge of the shelf for optimum audio performance.

Note: Placing the system in a corner, in a cabinet, or on a shelf may cause the system audio to sound heavy or have a booming bass quality. To decrease the bass, see “Decreasing the bass” on page 20.

CAUTIONS:

DO NOT place a CRT type TV on this system. It is not designed for use with this type of TV.

Allowing the base of your TV to hang over any edge of this speaker system increases the risk of the TV tipping, which may result in injury.

If placing the sound system backed up to a wall, make sure there is a space of at least 1" (2.5 cm) between the wall and the rear of the system.

With any placement of this product, make sure the ventilation openings on the rear panel are not blocked.

If your TV comes with an anti-tipdevice, install it according to the manufacturer’s instructions and adjust the tether as instructed after placing the TV on top of the system. Installing ananti-tipdevice is recommended when using a TV with this product. If your TV did not come with ananti-tipdevice, you can get one from most retail TV suppliers.

Optical digital audio

A digital audio output that passes digital data through a fiber optic cable.

If available, use this connection for best audio performance.
