Inputs and Outputs
Overview: The Bose CineMate Series II digital home theater speaker system provides high-quality home theater sound so you get more
from your HDTV experience. The Bose CineMate Series II digital home theater speaker system makes it easy to enjoy the
power of a home theater experience using your TV and video components,
like a DVD or Blu-ray player and Satellite receiver. Just two front speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module bring movies and music to life
via proprietary TrueSpace technology. The CineMate Series II offers
quick and easy connections because there are no rear or center speakers,
eliminating much of the wiring of traditional 5-speaker systems. An
easy-to-use 4-button remote control operates the Bose system.
Proprietary TrueSpace Digital Processing Circuitry:
The Bose CineMate Series II digital home
theater speaker system utilizes proprietary TrueSpace digital processing
circuitry to deliver a spacious, multichannel sound experience with
strong center imaging from just two visible speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass
Videostage 5 Decoding and Post-Processing Circuitry:
Proprietary Videostage 5
decoding and post-processing circuitry, combined with digital 5.1
decoding and DTS, delivers a high quality, multichannel surround sound
experience from practically any source: DVDs, videocassettes, stereo CDs, even
older mono TV shows and movies.
Digital 5.1 Decoding: The Bose CineMate Series II features an optical digital input and provides digital 5.1 decoding for improved realism from 5.1-encoded DVDs, DBS, or HDTV.
Digital Dynamic Range Compression: Digital Dynamic Range
speaker compression circuitry enables you to hear soft sounds (particularly

Interface Module: The Interface Module is a compact enclosure
that houses an LED indicator and connectors for audio input (stereo RCA and
optical), and receives IR commands for the speaker system. The Interface Module connects directly to your
TV while providing status information (on/off) for your speaker system.
Note: You can use either the module's stereo RCA
analog audio input or optical digital audio input, but not both.
Articulated Array Speakers: The Articulated
Array speaker design combines with TrueSpace surround digital processing
circuitry to deliver extraordinary sound. Each speaker has two precisely angled
drivers inside the ported enclosure. The two speakers are designed to work in
concert with Bose's proprietary signal processing to deliver a multi-channel
presentation from just two visible speakers. The result is a home theater
experience with a broad, spacious soundstage and strong center imaging.
Speaker Array Mounting: Each speaker array has an M5
female threaded insert on the back, allowing the speaker to be mounted using an
optional Bose wall/ceiling bracket, universal floor stand, or universal table
stand. Using the supplied rubber feet, the speaker arrays can be placed on any
Acoustimass Module: The Acoustimass module works in concert with the small speakers to deliver the full
range of sound. The patented Bose design produces low frequencies for all
channels with no audible distortion. When the module is tucked behind a curtain
or chair, all of the sound seems to come directly from the two arrays.
Bass Control Knob: The bass control knob located on the
rear of the Acoustimass module allows you to change the bass level of the Bose
4-Button Remote: The Bose home theater
