Wave SoundTouch IV unmute speakers when headphones plugged in

I was recently gifted a Wave SoundTouch series IV. I would like to plug in external speakers through the headphones jack so I can play the system in two rooms at once. However, because the SoundTouch automatically mutes the speakers whenever headphones are plugged in, this is not possible. Is there any way to unmute the speakers when the headphones jack is in use? If not, is it possible to update the software to add an option to the setup menu to do just this? Thank you for your time.

Re: Wave SoundTouch IV unmute speakers when headphones plugged in

Hi there @hermesrun, and welcome to the Bose Community!


At the current time, there is no way to play audio from the Wave ST IV while also outputting this through the headphone jack, and this will only play from either the Wave directly or to the outputted device.

I have, however, passed on this request for you to our development team to see if this can be changed and added in the future as you suggest!


Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding this, or any other suggestions!
