Enjoy rich, room-filling sound from a small music system that fits nearly anywhere—and now has a fresh design. The Bose® Wave music system IV includes a CD player, a DAB/AM/FM radio tuner and an input in the back for other sources.
- Exclusive waveguide speaker technology delivers high-performance sound
- CD/MP3 CD player with repeat, random and continuous play
- Advanced DAB/AM/FM tuner with onscreen text display of song and artist information
- Auxiliary input for other sources
- Slim credit-card-style remote operates all functions
Just plug it in and you’re ready to go. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, and your favourite radio stations are available at the touch of a preset. A slim infrared remote control lets you operate all system functions from anywhere in the room, and the convenient touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. You hear your music with clear, full, accurate sound. All from a system that fits virtually anywhere—living room end table, kitchen counter or bedside table.
Much as a flute expands a breath of air to fill a concert hall, Bose® waveguide technology fills your room with natural sound.
In addition to the built-in DAB/AM/FM radio tuner and CD player, connect to devices that use a standard 3.5-mm audio output.
There’s no stack of electronics. No big speakers. No wires running around your room. Proprietary Bose technologies automatically perform many of the adjustments needed for high-performance audio. So you can enjoy the performance of a large, multi-component stereo without setting a row of controls. You may find yourself listening to music more often and enjoying it more. It’s really that simple.
The advanced DAB/AM/FM tuner delivers clear radio reception, and you can instantly access your favourite stations with six FM and six AM presets. Song and station information appears on the large visual display. And the CD player lets you hear your music the way you like with repeat, random and continuous play.
- Dual alarms with gently rising volume
- Large display with adjustable brightness and automatic night-time dimming
- Headphone jack for private listening
What different audio devices can I play through the Wave music system IV?
Aside from its built-in DAB/AM/FM radio and CD/MP3 CD player, the Wave music system IV can play audio from most of today’s portable music devices. The standard 3.5-mm aux-in input accepts MP3 and DVD/CD players and even older audio cassette players.
Does the Wave music system IV work with Wi-Fi®?
No, but by adding the SoundTouch Pedestal it will. The Wave music system IV combined with the SoundTouch Pedestal creates one convenient unit that plays CDs, AM/FM radio and streaming music via Wi-Fi.
Can I use the Wave music system IV as part of my home wireless network?
No, the Wave music system IV is not a SoundTouch system with Wi-Fi capability. However, by adding the SoundTouch Pedestal it will work together with other SoundTouch systems to let you play music wirelessly throughout your home. Hear the same music everywhere, or different music in different rooms.
Is the speaker compatible with products from the Bose Home Speaker family?

Apple AirPlay 2 requires a Wi-Fi connection.

Yes. Two different wake-up times may be set, customised for each person’s preferences (radio station or beep, volume etc.). This is handy if two people wake up at different times.
