How to Play My iPod on My Bose Wave Radio

by Robert Kingsley

Modern iPods can store multiple gigabytes of music files which make them very convenient for transporting your entire music collection. The device is much easier to carry than a single compact disc. The downside to today's tiny personal music devices is that they can make it difficult to play music in a group setting or without earbuds. Connecting your iPod to a stereo system like the Bose Wave radio will fill a room with your favorite iPod tunes.

Connect using Auxiliary Cable

Step 1

Plug one end of the 3.5mm Aux cable into your iPod.

Step 2

Plug the second end of the 3.5mm Aux cable into the Aux port on your Bose Wave radio.

Step 3

Turn on both devices.

Step 4

Press "Aux" on the front of your Bose Wave radio.

Select a song on your iPod and play it. The music will play through the Bose speakers.

Connect Using iPod Dock

Step 1

Plug your iPod doc's electrical cable into a wall outlet.

Step 2

Plug your iPod doc's mini-audio cable into the "Audio Out" port on the dock and the "Aux" port on the Bose Wave radio. You can now control your iPod using the Bose Wave radio remote control.

Step 3

Turn on both devices.

Step 4

Press the iPod button on the remote to select the device.

Select a track using the arrow buttons and press "Play" to listen.

Tip

  • Alhough both options work well, the iPod dock is useful as it charges your device while it plays.
