that water or moisture are present.  
Section 810 of the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 pro-  
vides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and  
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna  
discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-  
discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and require-  
ments for the ground electrode. Refer to the antenna grounding  
illustration on this page.  
6. Clean only with a dry cloth – and as directed by Bose® Corpora-  
tion. Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning.  
7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance  
with the manufacturer’s instructions To ensure reliable opera-  
tion of the product and to protect it from overheating, put the prod-  
uct 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.

Information about products that generate  
electrical noise  
If applicable, this equipment has been tested and found to comply with  
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC  
rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against  
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment gener-  
ates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed  
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interfer-  
ence to radio communications. However, this is no guarantee that inter-  
ference 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:  
15. To prevent risk of fire or electric shock, avoid overloading  
wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience recep-  
tacles.  
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 fire or electric shock.  
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.  
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.  
• Connect the equipment to an outlet on a different circuit than the one  
to which the receiver is connected.  
17. See product enclosure bottom for safety related 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 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.  
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.  
Note: Unauthorized modification of the receiver or radio remote control  
could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.  
This product complies with the Canadian ICES-003 Class B
