7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install  
in accordance with the manufacturer’s  
instructions To ensure reliable operation of the  
product and to protect it from overheating, put the  
product in a position and location that will not  
interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, do  
not place the product on a bed, sofa, or similar  
surface that may block the ventilation openings. Do  
not put it in a built-in system, such as a bookcase or  
a cabinet that may keep air from flowing through its  
ventilation openings.  
16. Do not let objects or liquids enter the product

operating instructions or as marked on the product.  
8. Do not install near any heat sources, such as  
radiators, heat registers, stoves or other  
apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce

19. Avoid Power Lines – Use extreme care when  
installing 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.  
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.

or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience  
receptacles, and the point where they exit  
from the apparatus.  
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified  
by the manufacturer.  
12. Use only with the cart, stand,  
tripod, bracket or table specified by  
the manufacturer or sold with the

logger records certain technical data and usage history,  
including but not limited to volume levels, on/off data,  
user settings, source inputs, power output, and setup  
data. We may use this data to provide you with better  
service and support on your Wave® radio III and to  
improve product design in the future. Special equipment  
is required to read the data stored by the product data  
logger and such data can only be retrieved by Bose if  
your Wave® radio III is returned to Bose for service or as  
returned merchandise. The product data logger does

equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio  
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
