Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community Forums.
This should work for you. Your system can be controlled by universal remotes that send IR (infrared) commands. You do not need to change any settings on your system. Just be sure not to block the IR remote control sensor on the front of your system.
To program a universal remote, refer to the programming instructions for it. Many universal remotes include codes for different brands. For these remotes, try each code provided for Bose to determine if one can control your system. (Tip: Some codes for a brand may offer more control than others.)
I hope this helps, do let me know if you have any other questions.
