Important Safety Instructions

18.Use proper power sources – Plug the product into a proper power source, as described in the operating instructions or as marked on the product.

19.Avoid power lines – Use extreme care when installing an outside antenna system to keep from touching power lines or circuits, as contact with them may be fatal. Do not install external antennas near overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, nor where an antenna can fall into such circuits or power lines.

20.Ground all outdoor antennas – If an external antenna or cable system is connected to this product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded. This will provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.

Section 810 of the National Electrical Code ANSI/ NFPA No. 70 provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-inwire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location ofantenna-dischargeunit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the ground electrode. Refer to the antenna grounding illustration on this page.

Setting Up

Selecting the locations for your Lifestyle® 40 music system

When you place your speakers according to the guidelines below, a combination of reflected and direct sound provides a lifelike stereo image virtually everywhere in the room. You may experiment with the placement and orientation of the Jewel Cube® speakers and Acoustimass® module to produce the sound most pleasing to you.

For more discussion of speaker placement and room acoustics, see “Fine-tuningyour system” on page 28.

Jewel Cube speakers

Follow these guidelines to select locations that provide the maximum stereo effect from your

Lifestyle® 40 music system (Figure 2).

1.For the most lifelike sound, place the Jewel Cube speakers 6-12feet(1.8-3.6m) apart. They can be as close as 3 feet (1 m) or as far apart as 15 feet (4.6 m).

2.Place the Jewel Cube speakers 6-12inches(15-30cm) from the surface behind them.

3.Direct one cube of each speaker toward the center of the room. Direct the other cube toward a side wall to create reflected sound.

CAUTION: Choose a stable and level surface for your Jewel Cube speakers. Vibration can cause the speakers to move, particularly on very smooth surfaces. For stability, peel off the backing from the two identical rubber feet and center them in the matching shapes on the bottom of each speaker.

Note: The Jewel Cube speakers are magnetically shielded so you can place them close to the TV without af fecting 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 the TV.

1.Place the Acoustimass module along the same wall or close to the same end of the room as the Jewel Cube® speakers. See the example in 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 Acoustimass 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 5

5.Once you have selected a position for the module, place the four self-adhesiverubber 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 thebuilt-inelectr onic circuitry, and should not be blocked.

CAUTION: The magnetic field from the Acoustimass module is not an immediate risk to your video tapes, audio tapes, and other magnetic media. However, you should not store tapes directly on or near the Acoustimass module.

Multi-roominterface

Select a location for the multi-roominterface. It may be placed out of sight, if you like.

1.Place the multi-roominterface within 30 feet (9.1 m) of the Acoustimass module (the length of the audio input cable).

2.Place the multi-roominterface close enough to the sound sources (TV, VCR, DVD, 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® Customer Service.

CD changer

Select a convenient location for the CD changer.

1.Place the CD changer on a level surface. Allow enough room to lift the door.

2.Place the CD changer close enough to the multi-roominterface to allow for a cable length of 6 feet (2 m).

Setting Up

Connecting your system

Once you have selected locations for your speakers, CD changer, and interface, connect the system.

CAUTION: Make sure all components are unplugged from the power outlet befor e you begin hooking up the system.

Figure 6

Speaker cable connection to the Jewel Cube speaker

Connecting the Jewel Cube® speakers to the Acoustimass® module

1.Insert the connector of each speaker cable fully into the jack on the rear of each speaker (Figure 6). Match the ridge of the connector to the notch at the top of the jack.

2.Connect each 20-foot(6.1 m) cable to the corresponding left or right green jack on the Acoustimass module. Speaker cables have green connectors at one end, with L (left) and R (right) molded into the connectors.

To lengthen the cable, connect speaker wire with male phono (RCA) plugs on each end to your supplied speaker cable. Use a female-to-femaleadapter (“barrel” connector). Or, splice in18-gauge(.75 mm2) or thicker cord (connecting + to + and – to–).To purchase extension wire, see your dealer, electronics store, or call Bose® Customer Service.
