Can I add Bluetooth to my Bose Wave Radio? This is a question we get a lot here at CoolStream.
The answer is YES, you can! CoolStream has assembled all the pieces you need to add Bluetooth to your Bose Wave Radio.
The CoolStream kit includes:
- RCA to 3.5 mm cables.
- CoolStream Duo.
- USB to 30-Pin iPod charging cable.
- Wall charger.
Three easy steps to adding Bluetooth to the Wave Radio.
- Connect the Duo to your Wave Radio using the RCA cable.
The Bose Wave Radio does not have a 30-pin iPod connector found in the SoundDock line of stereos. It does, however, conveniently have the RCA ports in the back of the radio.
2. Keep the Duo ready to stream by plugging the iPod charging cable into the bottom of the Duo and the USB connector into the wall charger. Plug the wall charger into the wall.
The CoolStream Duo is designed with an internal rechargeable battery along with an Audio Out AUX port. This makes the Duo capable of streaming music to the Wave radio.
When connected to an iPod charging cable, the Duo will be ready to stream anytime you are. The battery is equipped with overcharge protection. Set it and forget it for Bluetooth on-demand with your Bose Wave Radio.
3. Set your Bose Wave Radio to AUX using the button on the top of the radio.
With our CoolStream Kit, adding Bluetooth music streaming to your Bose Wave Radio is easy and affordable.
Use this RCA Bluetooth kit on any stereo with RCA jacks.
Bose, great sound, and a class act.
For many years Bose has been recommending the CoolStream Duo as the best go-to Bluetooth adapter for their line of SoundDocks. Because the Duo can work with either a 12-volt or a 5-volt dock, it is the perfect fit for the Portable Bose SoundDock, SoundDock I, SoundDock II, and SoundDock 10.
In 2012, when Apple transitioned to the 8-pin lightning connector for the iPhone 5, the 30-pin iPod connector became a legacy connection for many docking stations. While Bose continued to innovate as they always had and continue to do, they never abandoned their original customers. We first found out that Bose recommends the CoolStream Duo for their line of SoundDocks from comments to our website. Bose is a class act supporting their loyal customers and a small business from New Hampshire.
CoolStream strives to produce a quality, dependable product and tries to give the best advice and customer service possible. We can’t tell you how much we love to hear that Bose has recommended the CoolStream Duo. Thank you, Bose!
