Lifestyle 535 soundtouch system speaker placement


I got lifestyle 535 system with 5 jewel cube speakers.


My living area is about 13.5 feet wide (TV mounted on this side) and about 23 feet long (rear speakers ceiling mounted on the end  of side , approx .75 feet from end and sides)


the TV is 65'. How far from the edges of the Tv should i place the front (L,R & C) speakers? I read some page on BOSE website that max recommended distance is 3 feet from the edge of TV; what is the minimum recommended distance ?

Re: Lifestyle 535 soundtouch system speaker placement

Hi Greyhawk4u, 


Thank you for the post. We do have speaker placement guidelines for the 535. Here they are:



Front speakers

  1. Place one speaker to the left and one speaker to the right of the TV
  2. Keep each speaker within 3 feet of the TV, if possible
  3. Keep speakers at least 3 feet apart
  4. Aim the speakers toward the listening area
  5. When placing the speakers in an enclosed bookcase shelf, position them at the front edge of the shelf

Center speaker

  1. Place the center speaker on a stable and level surface directly above or below the TV

Rear speakers

  1. The rear (surround) speakers should be located in the rear half of the room, preferably behind the listener
  2. Place the speakers at ear level or higher if possible


  1. Place the console near the TV. Do NOT place the TV on top of the console
  2. Make sure there is an AC (mains) outlet nearby

Acoustimass module

  1. Stand the Acoustimass module on its rubber feet along the same wallas the TV, or along any other wall in the front third of the room
  2. Do not block the vent openings at the back of the Acoustimass module. This could cause the module to overheat
  3. The Acoustimass module can safely sit on its side, but do not stand it on the end with the port or on the end opposite the port
  4. The Acoustimass module is not magnetically shielded, and must be placed at least 18 to 24 inches from a TV monitor
  5. Choose a stable and level surface. Vibration can cause the Acoustimass module to move, particularly on smooth surfaces like marble, glass or highly polished wood
  6. Make sure there is an AC (mains) outlet nearby
    Note: Only CRT style TVs are affected. This includes tube style TVs and rear projection with CRTs

SoundTouch wireless adapter (available separately)

  1. Place the SoundTouch wireless adapter within 1 to 6 ft. (.3 to 1.8 m) of the console
  2. Do not connect the adapter to the console until prompted by the SoundTouch app



Please let us know if you have any other questions! 



Kind Regards
