Selecting the locations for your Lifestyle s 12 system When you place your speakers according to the guidelines below , a combination of reflected and direct sound provides the audio atmosphere of a home theater . You may experiment with the placement and orientation of the cubes to produce the sound most pleasing to you . For more discussion of speaker placement and room acoustics , see " Fine - tuning your system " on page 27 . Speaker locations Follow these guidelines to select locations that provide the maximum home theater effect from your Lifestyle ® 12 system ( Figures 2 and 3 ) . 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 . If you are placing the center speaker on top of the television , use the smaller of the two sets of four rubber feet provided . You may obtain additional rubber feet ( part no . 178321 ) , free of charge , by contacting Bose _ Customer Service ( see listings on the inside back cover ) . Left and right front speakers The sound from the left and right front speakers should seem to appear at the edge of the picture , so that the acoustic image is close to the size of the visual image ( Figure 2 ) . 1 . Place the cubes so that they line up with the center of the TV screen . 2 . Place them up to 3 feet ( 1 m ) from the edge of the TV screen . We recommend a maximum distance of 3 feet ( 1 m ) so that the sound does not become too separated from the picture . You may wish to vary this distance based on room condi - tions and personal preference . The front cables allow the cube speakers to be placed up to 20 feet ( 6.1 m ) from the Acoustimass ® module . 3 . 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 pat - terns in Figure 3 . ) Note : The cube speakers are magnetically shielded so you can place them close to the TV without affecting picture quafity . Center speaker The sound from the center speaker should appear to come directly from the center of the picture ( Figure 2 ) . The center speaker cable allows up to 20 feet ( 6.1 m ) distance from the Acoustimass module . 1 . Place the center speaker directly above or below the center of the TV screen , or at the closest convenient location . 2 . Align the speaker with the front of the TV screen ( not pushed to the back of the TV ) . 3 . Direct each of the cubes slightly away from center , to create a wider area of direct sound ( Figure 3 ) . 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 quafity of the sound . This effect is minimized ff the shelves are filled with books . 6 October 29 , 2001 AM 196573 05 V . pdf

Center Figure 2 Recommended front speaker locations Left front - - - - Right front Surround speakers The surround ( rear ) speakers create an area of sound around the listener . Place them in the back half of your room . Direct the cubes so that you cannot pinpoint the exact location of the sound source ( Figure 3 ) . The surround cables allow up to 50 feet ( 15.2 m ) distance from the Acoustimass ® module . Figure 3 Left Center Right Acoustimass front front module Speakerplacement Left Right surround surround 1 . Place the speakers at ear height or higher , if possible . 2 . Adjust the rear surround speakers to direct sound to the front and back of the listener . AM19657305 V . pdf October 29 , 2001 7

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 18inches ( 45 cm ) from the TV . 1 . Place the Acoustimass module along the same wall as the TV , or close to the same end of the room as the front speakers ( see the example along the front wall in Figure 3 ) . 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 4 ) . 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 4 . Figure 4 Acoustimass module positions _ te _ rternatpeosition 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 . 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 . 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 the sound sources ( TV , VCR , DVD player , 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 .

Connecting your home theater components to the Lifestyle s 12 system There are many possible variations of equipment in a home theater . In addition to the Lifestyle ® 12 system , a home theater complement typically includes a stereo or mono TV and stereo VCR . In a digital home theater system , the primary source may be a DVD player . Your home theater can include many other combinations of equipment , including cable TV , laserdisc players , additional VCRs , and a satellite decoder . Note : A mono TV only serves as a display for the video , not as a source for the audio . In order for the Lifestyle ® 12 system to provide home theater effects , the program material must be in stereo or surround - encoded , and the device playing the material must be stereo . Look for the word " surround " on the tape , CD , or preceding the TV broadcast . To hear stereo or surround sound from encoded video tapes , you must have a stereo ( HiFi ) VCR . While not all VCRs deliver stereo , all CD , and DVD players and nearly all laserdisc players do . Note : Line level outputs from most VCRs or laserdisc players are fixed . If your VCR , laserdisc player , or other video sound source has fixed and variable outputs , use the fixed outputs . Setting up a digital sound source Connect a DTV or DVD player's digital signal directly to the female RCA jack on the audio input cable . Connect the DVD player's analog signal output to the AUX inputs . If your Lifestyle ® system receives a valid digital signal ( including PCM or Dolby Digital bitstreams ) , this digital sound is used . If no valid digital signal is received , then your system selects the analog signal being sent to AUX , which is then processed by the Videostage ® decoder for excellent home theater sound . If your digital audio source has an optical connector , you will need an adapter with an RCA ( coaxial ) connector . Consult your dealer or contact Bose ® . Note : Ensure the connection between the digital source and the Lifestyle ® system is made using a 3 to 6 foot ( 1 to 2 m ) standard audio cable or video cable . For longer lengths , use a 75 ohm cable . Figure 9 Music center connectors U . . . _ . . , . , U DVD analog outputs to AUX inputs Non - digital video sound source outputs to VIDEO SOUND inputs Setting up a video sound source The Lifestyle ® 12 system has one set of video sound inputs ( Figure 9 ) for your non - digital video sound sources , such as your TV or VCR . Note : YourLifestyle ® 12 system includes one 6 - foot ( 1.8 m ) stereo cable to connect the right ( R ) and left ( L ) audio outputs from a component to the music center inputs . Cables may also be supplied with your components . If needed , audio cables are available at many electronics stores , or call Bose . Most audio cables are color coded . Match red connectors to right ( R ) jacks and black or white connectors to left ( L ) jacks . 12 October 29 , 2001 AM19657305 V . pdf

How to set up your home theater There are two basic methods for setting up your home theater . It is best to connect compo - nents directly to the Lifestyle ® 12 music center , and select the source from its remote or control panel . A second option is to use a stereo TV as the switching center to select the sound source . In each example , the analog outputs from the DVD player ( or other digital device ) are connected to the AUX inputs . You may need extra long audio cables or exten - sions for some of these connections . ( 1 ) To connect video sound sources directly to the Lifestyle s 12 system You may connect up to three video sound sources directly to your system . For example , connect the analog outputs of your DVD player to AUX , the TV to VIDEO SOUND , and the VCR's fixed outputs to TAPE PLAY on the back of your music center . ( See Figure 10 . ) Con - nect the coaxial digital audio output from your DVD player to the female RCA connection on the audio input cable ( connecting the music center with the module ) using a male - to - male RCA cable . If a valid digital signal is received by the Lifestyles 12 system through the audio input cable , the system plays that audio source . If no valid digital signal is received , it selects the backup analog signal being sent to AUX . When connecting to your TV : • Connect the TV fixed audio outputs to the VIDEO SOUND INPUTs on the music center . • Turn the TV speakers off or the volume all the way down . ( If there is an internal / external speakers switch , select external speakers . Do not connect any speakers to the - IV . ) • Turn off any special TV settings such as expanded stereo , mega - bass , phantom , or SAR They prevent proper surround processing through your Lifestyle ® system . • Set the TV balance control to the center of the dial or range . • Set tone controls to flat or the middle position ( neutral ) . • Set TV to the stereo position .

( 2 ) To direct video sound sources through your TV This is an alternative connection method . ( See Figure 11 . ) If your stereo - IV has fixed audio outputs ( the audio signal level doesn't change ) and it allows you to select the source of the signal ( VCR , laserdisc , cable , etc . ) , then you can : • Connect your DVD player L and R outputs to the music center AUX inputs . • Connect the DVD video output to one of the video inputs on the TV . • Connect the coaxial digital audio output from your DVD player to the female RCA connection on the audio inputcable ( connectingthe music center with the module ) , using a male - to - male RCA cable . • Connect your home theater components to the TV inputs . • Connect the TV fixed audio outputs to the VIDEO SOUND INPUTs on the music center . • Turn the TV speakers off or the volume all the way down . ( If there is an internal / external speakers switch , select external speakers . Do not connect any speakers to the - IV . ) • Turn off any special - IV settings such as expanded stereo , mega - bass , phantom , or SAR They prevent proper surround processing through your Lifestyle ® system . • Set the TV balance control to the center of the dial or range . • Set tone controls to flat or the middle position ( neutral ) . • Set TV to the stereo position . Note : If necessary , as a second choice , you can use the variable audio outputs from your stereo TV . Turn off or disconnect the TV's speakers and leave the volume control up - close to the maximum setting . Note : If you connect your stereo VCR through your stereo TV , do not use coaxial cable . Instead , connect the VCR L and R audio outputs to the TV L and R audio inputs to ensure proper stereo and surround sound .

About the video source Your TV is the display for the video ( picture ) signal . Thus , the video signal must be connected directly to the TV . Do not connect it to the Lifestyle ® 12 system . Note : For assistance with video connections between your DVD player and / or VCR and TV , see your video components manuals . Note : There is no video signal input ( usually a yellow - coded jack ) on the music center . The VIDEO SOUND INPUT jacks are for audio from a video source . Other connections Use standard RCA audio cables to connect other components to your Lifestyle ® music center , matching the red connector to R ( right ) and the white ( or black ) connector to L ( left ) . You can use a Y - adapter ( available at electronics stores ) to connect a mono source . Tape deck To use an external recorder ( analog audio cassette , MD , or digital audio tape ) , connect the inputs ( REC ) of the recorder to the music center's TAPE REC jacks . Connect the outputs ( PLAY ) from the recorder to the music center's TAPE PLAY jacks . CD changer or laserdisc player To use one of these components , connect its audio outputs to the music center VIDEO SOUND INPUTS or AUX ( if not used for a digital source ) jacks , matching the red plug to R ( right ) and black or white plug to L ( left ) . Turntable To connect a turntable , you need a phono preamplifier ( with RIAA equalization ) . You can order the appropriate model from Bose ® by calling 1 - 800 - 367 - 4008 and asking for part number 252603 . Connect the audio outputs of the phono preamplifier to the music center's VIDEO or AUX ( if not used for a digital source ) jacks , matching the red plug to R ( right ) and black or white plug to L ( left ) . Note : The Lifestyle ® 12 system cannot turn on or turn off a connected component . AM196573 05 V . pdf October29 , 2001 15

Fine . tuning your system In most situations , following the speaker placement guidelines ( see pages 6 - 8 ) provides excellent sound quality . Figure 20 You do not need to adjust tone settings for changes in volume , since Bose ® patented signal Bassand treble controls processing technology provides a natural tonal balance over the full range of volume settings . If desired , you can further fine - tune your system as described below . Adjusting speaker controls The Lifestyle ® 12 system TREBLE and BASS controls are located on the Acoustimass ® module ( Figure 20 ) . They allow you to adjust the treble ( high frequencies ) and bass ( low frequencies ) . In the normal setting , the dots on each control are in the 12 o'clock position . You can also locate the normal setting by feeling when the control settles into the notch at this position . Turn the controls clockwise to increase , and counterclockwise to decrease , the amount of treble or bass . 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 .
