Using your Wii video game console with a surround sound system immerses you more fully in the gaming experience. If you have a Bose Lifestyle DVD-based home entertainment system, you can route audio from your Wii console through your TV and into the Bose system to play video games in full surround sound.
Things You'll Need
- Composite RCA cable
Place the Wii console either vertically or horizontally in your desired location. Attach the included Wii stand to the bottom of the device if positioning the console vertically.
Connect the included Sensor Bar to the "Sensor Bar" port on the back of the Wii console, and then position the Sensor Bar above or below your TV screen.
Mount the Sensor Bar on its included stand or remove the protective film from the foam pads on the bottom of the Sensor Bar and press down firmly to secure it directly to your TV or table. The front of the Sensor Bar should be aligned roughly with the front of the TV.
Connect the Wii AC adapter to the power jack on the back of the console and insert the AC plug into an electrical outlet.
Connect the Wii AV cable to the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the Wii console.
Connect the yellow RCA plug on the Wii AV cable to the video input port on your TV. Connect the red and white RCA plugs on the Wii AV cable to your TV's audio inputs.
Connect the composite RCA cable to the audio output ports on your TV, matching white to white and red to red. Connect the other end of the cable to the "TV" ports on the Bose Lifestyle unit, again matching white to white and red to red. The TV ports are located at the right end of the Audio In section on the back of the Bose Lifestyle unit.
