Will the CoolStream BOOM! work with my Bose Wave Radio? The short answer is yes. Since the Bose Wave Radio does not have a 30-pin connector you will need a few cables to connect it to the BOOM!.
The first cable you will need is an RCA to 3.5mm AUX cable. This can be found on Amazon for about $7.
As you can see, this will plug into the back of your Bose Wave Radio and also into the 3.5mm AUX jack on the top of your CoolStream BOOM!. Using the charged internal battery of the BOOM!, you can slide the switch on the top of the BOOM! over to the left and stream music from your phone or tablet to your Bose Wave Radio. The only adjustment you will need to make to your radio is to set it to AUX.
Since the BOOM!’s rechargeable battery receives power from the 30-pin connector, you will have to charge your BOOM! periodically. For this reason we suggest using a traditional Apple 30-pin charging cable to keep your BOOM! constantly powered for easy streaming.
There is however another option which is a bit more expensive as it requires the Bose Wave Connect Kit. This small silver adapter connects to your Bose Wave Radio using the same RCA to 3.5 cable along with the cabling that comes with it and allows for continuous charging of your CoolStream BOOM!. It is a bit more elegant a solution to expand the qualities of such a solid radio.
In addition to being able to now stream music from your phone or tablet through to your Bose Wave Radio, you can also now use your Amazon Echo Dot. This feature will really bring your radio into 2017.
So instead of pairing your CoolStream BOOM! to your phone, you pair the BOOM! to the Amazon Echo Dot. Now you can have all the conveniences of Alexa playing through your Bose Wave Radio. The great sound you know and love from your Bose with your favorite playlists from Spotify, a book on tape from Audible, or one of Alexa’s really bad jokes.
