CineMate 15 Home Theater System: The CineMate 15 Home Theater Speaker
System offers spacious home theater sound from a compact soundbar speaker and
hide-away Acoustimass module. The CineMate 15 system connects directly to your
flat-panel HDTV, with no additional AV receiver required. Exclusive Bose
innovations enable wide, spacious sound that extends well beyond the soundbar
speaker's physical size. The included wired Acoustimass module adds big
bass-notes to your movies, music, and games; while it is neatly tucked away from
view. The CineMate 15 Home Theater Speaker System is all controlled with a
simplified universal IR remote.
Soundbar Speaker w/ TruSpace Technology: The Bose
CineMate 15's soundbar speaker employs a four speaker array along with
proprietary TruSpace technology to produce a full, spacious sound that is wider
than the TV screen. The result is a greater dynamic sound from your favorite TV
shows and movies. The soundbar speaker uses the reflective surfaces of the room
to deliver a spacious home theater experience. To ensure optimal audio
performance, the soundbar should be placed equidistant from each side wall and
directly in front-center of the TV. No objects should be placed on either side
of the soundbar, nor should it be placed inside a cabinet, as this would result
in a limited sound stage.
Note: The soundbar speaker features an attached 9.75' proprietary cable
that plugs in the system's Acoustimass module.
Acoustimass Module w/ Bass Control: The Acoustimass module works in
concert with the soundbar speaker to deliver full-range sound. The patented Bose
design produces deep low frequencies with no audible distortion. The rear-panel bass control knob on the
Acoustimass module allows you to change the bass level output of the system. When the module is tucked behind a curtain or chair, all of the sound
seems to come directly from the soundbar speaker. For best sound quality, the
Acoustimass module should be placed on the floor against the same wall as the
television and soundbar, with an electrical outlet nearby for the power cord.
The module should not be placed on a shelf or table.
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Bose CineMate 15 speaker system
is fitted with two digital inputs (optical/coaxial) and one stereo analog input
(RCA), so you can connect virtually any TV; all audio connections are found on
back of the soundbar speaker. The optical and coaxial digital inputs support 2ch
PCM and Dolby Digital. To enjoy the full benefit of hearing audio through the
Bose CineMate system, the internal speakers in your TV should be turned off.
Note: The digital optical output terminals of most newer
flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby
Digital surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or
connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected
to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable
Universal Remote Control: The Bose CineMate 15 includes an
IR universal remote control for wireless operation of the speaker system. You
can also program the universal remote to control your TV, DVD, Blu-ray Disc
player, cable/satellite box, game system, or DVR. You can also program most
other manufacturer universal remote controllers to operate the Bose CineMate 15
Auto Power Off: The CineMate 15 system will automatically
power off after one hour if no audio signal is present.
