Bose UFS-20 Assembly Instructions
By Marshal M. Rosenthal
The Bose UFS-20 speaker stand -- or floor stand as it is called by the manufacturer -- provides a stable surface for a Bose speaker that is being used as part of a home theater or audio speaker system. It's designed for optimal listening and to hide the wires. Assemble the Bose UFS-20 speaker stand with basic tools that you'll find around the house.
Stand the UFS-20 base on the floor with the short end facing you. Unscrew the locking nut from the bottom of the stand’s base with your fingers. Run the end of the speaker cable through the bottom of the base. Run the speaker wire through the bottom of the speaker stand and out of the bent top.
Insert the straight end of the speaker stand into the hole in the base. Screw the speaker stand into the base by rotating it with your hands. Stop screwing the stand into the base when the bent end at the top of the speaker stand is facing away from you.
Place the locking nut over the end of the speaker stand that is poking through the bottom of the base. Screw the locking nut back on with your fingers. Tighten the nut with pliers.
Connect the “Plus” and “Minus” labeled speaker wires on the speaker cable to the matching connections on the back of the Bose speaker.
Place the back of the Bose speaker against the speaker plate at the top of the UFS-20. Tighten the locking screws on the back of the speaker plate to secure it to the Bose speaker -- use a Phillips screwdriver. Repeat this entire procedure with the other UFS-20 speaker stand.
