5. Do not use this apparatus near water or moisture –  
Do not use this product near a bathtub, washbowl,  
kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, near a  
swimming pool, or anywhere else that water or mois-  
ture are present.  
15. To prevent risk of fire or electric shock, avoid over-  
loading wall outlets, extension cords, or integral  
convenience receptacles.  
6. Clean only with a dry cloth and as directed by  
Bose® Corporation. Unplug this product from the wall  
outlet before cleaning.  
16. Do not let objects or liquids enter the product as  
they may touch dangerous voltage points or short-out  
parts that could result in a re or electric shock.  
17. See product enclosure bottom for safety related  
7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in  
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions –  
To ensure reliable operation of the product and to pro-  
tect it from overheating, put the product in a position  
and location that will not interfere with its proper venti-  
lation. For example, do not place the product on a  
bed, sofa, or similar surface that may block the ventila-  
tion openings. Do not put it in a built-in system, such  
as a bookcase or a cabinet that may keep air from  
owing through its ventilation openings.  
markings.  
18. Use Proper Power Sources Plug the product into a  
proper power source, as described in the operating  
instructions or as marked on the product.  
19. Avoid Power Lines Use extreme care when install-  
ing an outside antenna system to keep from touching  
power lines or circuits, as contact with them may be  
fatal. Do not install external antennas near overhead  
power lines or other electric light or power circuits, nor  
where an antenna can fall into such circuits or power  
lines.  
8. Do not install near any heat sources, such as radia-  
tors, heat registers, stoves or other apparatus  
(including amplifiers) that produce heat.  
20. Ground All Outdoor Antennas If an external  
antenna or cable system is connected to this product,  
be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded. This  
will provide some protection against voltage surges  
and built-up static charges.  
9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized  
or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two  
blades with one wider than the other. A grounding-  
type plug has two blades and a third grounding  
prong. The wider blade or third prong are provided  
for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit in  
your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement  
of the obsolete outlet.  
Section 810 of the National Electrical Code ANSI/  
NFPA No. 70 provides informaiton with respect to  
proper grounding of the mast and supporting struc-  
ture, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna dis-  
charge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of  
antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding elec-  
trodes, and requirements for the ground electrode.  
Refer to the antenna grounding illustration on this  
page.  
10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or  
pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience recep-  
tacles, and the point where they exit from the  
apparatus.  
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the  
manufacturer.  
12. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table  
specified by the manufacturer or sold  
with the apparatus. When a cart is  
used, use caution when moving the  
cart/apparatus combination to avoid  
injury from tip-over.  
13. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or  
when unused for long periods of time to prevent  
damage to this product.  
14. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.  
Servicing is required when the apparatus has been

However, this is no guarantee that interference will not  
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does  
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,  
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and  
on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by  
one or more of the following measures:  
Antenna lead-in wire  
Ground clamp  
Antenna discharge unit  
(NEC Section 810-20)  
Grounding conductors  
(NEC Section 810-21)  
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

system (NEC ART 250 Part H)  
Connect the equipment to an outlet on a different circuit  
than the one to which the receiver is connected.  
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician  
for help.  
Note to CATV system installer  
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system  
installers attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC (of USA)
