I own a Lifestyle V35 system and Bose outdoor speakers supported by the SA-3 amplifier. Are these two units compatible? I'd like to combine the two and place my Lifestyle system in my outdoor kitchen area. The kitchen area is roofed/well covered. If compatible how do I go about connecting the two?
Thank you in advance.
Thanks for reaching out, we would love to look into any available options for you.
So I can provide you with the most accurate information, what outdoor product do you own? Please use this link to help you in identifying your product model.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for confirming this djshoots.
Yes, I can confirm that these two are compatible. I will happily do what I can to provide you with instructions for your setup.
So I can provide you with the most accurate information. What do you already have connected to your SA-3? Can you also confirm the remote control you have with your Lifestyle V35?
There are some issues online with the Bose community. For some reason it shows I accepted your last reply as the solution. But I need more direction to complete my set up
im sorry for the confusion. Thanks again.
Is this the first time you're attempting to set up and connecting the two systems together, or have they been previously connected? To open, the Lifestyle V35 should not be used in outdoor environments as noted in your first post. The SA-3 amplifier should also be located indoors, but can then be wired to your outdoor speakers.
You'll need an expansion remote to control the SA-3 amplifier - typically an RC35S2 or a PMCIII. Do you have either of these? If this is the first time you're attempting to set this up, you may find it easier to call in to our support team, due to the age of the systems.
Bose Link can be used to send audio from the Lifestyle system to the connected SA-3 system. You'll need a Bose Link cable to physically connect the two systems together, as noted below.
You will then need to program the room codes. Firstly, on the SA-3.
Following this, ensure the remote's room codes are set.
If you have the RC352S:
If you have the PMCIII:
If the remote does not activate the expansion room, the default house code and/or house code mode may have changed. Try setting the remote to House Code 0 (switches 1, 2, 3 and 4 down). You may also need to associate the remote to the system.
More info on room code settings can be found from our website HERE.
Thanks so much!
Last question. How will the integration of a bose soundtouch wireless link adapter affect the systems functionalities? I'm considering including the link adapter to enhance my systems use.
Adding the adapter will not affect the functionality of the system, it will just enhance it to add the features that the adapter provides.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
