Adjusting the volume on your system and computer

When you are listening to any audio source on your computer, there are usually three separate volume settings to consider: one from your computer, one from the application and the volume control on your Bose® system. For best sound performance, we recommend presetting your computer and application to 2/3 of the maximum volume or higher (see below). Then, use the volume control on your Bose system as the master control and adjust the volume accordingly.

The way in which you adjust the volume depends on the type of computer you are using, and on your operating system.

Follow the instructions below to adjust your computer operating system volume:

Mac OS® X operating system

From the dock, click on System preferences

Click on the Sound icon

Click on the "Output" tab and make sure it is set to line out

Adjust the volume so that it is set to at least 2/3 of the maximum volume or higher

Nothing should be muted and the balance control must be centred for best performance.

Windows® 7 or Windows® Vista operating systems

Click the Start button in the lower left-hand corner of the computer screen

Click on the Control Panel button

In the Control Panel, click on Hardware and Sound

Beneath the Sound icon, click on "Adjust system volume" to open the volume mixer

Adjust the volume so that it is set to at least 2/3 of the maximum volume or higher

Windows® XP operating system

Click the Start button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen

Click on the Control Panel button

Click on the Sounds and Audio Devices icon

Click the "Audio" tab

Click the Volume button in the Sound playback section highlighted here in red

Adjust all volumes to at least 2/3 of the maximum volume or higher

Nothing should be muted, and the balance control must be centred for best performance.
