The Bose SoundDock II is a portable audio system that can connect to any audio device. If you own an iPod or other dockable media player, you can plug it directly into the SoundDock itself for a pure digital sound. AM/FM radios and other non-dockable players can send an analogue signal through an aux cable, enabling multiple people at once to listen to a single portable device.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Plug one end of the aux cable into the "Headphones" or "Line Out" jack on the radio, and turn the volume on the radio up all the way.

  2. 2

    Plug the other end of the aux cable into the "Audio Input" jack on the SoundDock.

  3. 3

    Press "Play/Pause" if you have a docked iPod currently playing. This allows the radio to play through the system while the iPod charges.
