Question about Bose Wave Radio II

Unable to connect ipod

I have purchased a 3.5mm 1/8 inch stereo audio cable to connect my ipod to my bose wave system. I plugged the cable into the earphone plug-in of the ipod and to the auxillary of the Bose. When I attempt to select auxillary on the Bose (using the Bose remote,) the Bose will not display the auxillary mode, it is like the Bose will not recognize the auxillary device. Any thoughts?

Reset the radio (it has a processor) by just unplugging the power cord for about 30+ seconds and plugging it back in. If this doesn't solve the problem, try replacing the remote battery (CR2032- can be found almost everywhere batteries are sold) If all else fails, call Bose tech support. The cable you connected has nothing to do with this.

How to connect tablet to bose radio


This can be relatively easily achieved using a 3.5mm stereo plug to 2 x RCA plug lead, available from most electronics stores at modest cost, to connect the headphone socket of your tablet to the 'Aux In' connection on the wave radio.

Be careful not to turn up the volume on the tablet too high or you will get audio sound

How do I connect an ipod to my EPA900 ? also, I have a digital recorder with a USB connect. Is there a converter product that I can purchase that will allow me to connect this recorder to the system?


It is unlikely to find a compatible USB convertor for that digital recorder. If it has audio input you can probably use a similar cable to that for the IPOD described next. For the IPOD, get a 1/8 inch STEREO splitter cable that splits to 1/4 inch plugs or RCA plugs to connect to the PA system. Radio Shack will probably have a suitable one.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

I want to connect my computer audio out "green audio cable" into my Bose 3-2-1 "audio in" jack so I can hear the computer sounds. How do I do it and what do I need to buy?


The audio output jack on the computer (green) takes a 1/8-inch stereo plug, also called a mini-stereo plug. On the Bose rear panel, the audio inputs are red and white RCA jacks. So you need an adapter cable with suitable plugs on each end. Radio Shack sells a couple of them in different lengths. Here's a link to one of them so you can see what it looks like.

All you need to do is plug in the cable at each end, select the rear audio input source on your Bose, and you're in business. Make sure you have the computer volume set to its full level in the Windows sound settings so you'll get the best performance.

If you need a copy of the Bose owner's manual for reference, you can find it here at Bose.
