How to Make Bose Speakers Wireless

Updated February 21, 2017

Bose battery powered speakers are portable, except that they require an audio cable to be connected to them in order for music to be played. To make a pair of Bose speakers wireless, add a wireless audio transmitter kit which can be purchased from an electronics store or a computer store. All of the needed components are included in the kit, including audio cables. The set-up is straightforward and automatic, eliminating the need for looking at the manual.

Place the wireless audio transmitter next to the audio amplifier of the home theatre. Rotate the audio amplifier so that you can see its back. Insert the red and white RCA plugs at one end of the included mini-jack-to-RCA audio cable into the red and white line output connections on the back of the audio amplifier. Insert the mini-jack plug end of the mini-jack-to-RCA audio cable into the audio input on the wireless audio transmitter.

Plug the wireless audio transmitter's power supply cord into a wall socket in the room for power. Plug the power cord from the power supply into the power port on the wireless audio transmitter.

Turn the audio amplifier on. Select the "FM" button on the front panel to start playing an FM station.

Place the Bose speakers wherever you want to listen to the music, for example, in a bedroom or on a patio outside. Plug the wireless audio receiver's power supply cord into a wall socket in the room or an exterior wall socket on the side of the house for power. Plug the power cord from the power supply into the power port on the wireless audio receiver.
