    • Best answerYes, each weekend we take the speaker outside to the back yard porch. If I'm using my Mac Book as the audio source, I leave the Mac in the kitchen and speaker out side. It works great in the garage. I say if you keep it from getting wet, there are no problems I see.

  • Q: What do you think is the largest the room should be to maintain the sound quality? I have a rather large open concept area.  (3 Answers)

    • Best answerThanks for your question. The SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile III speaker is our best performing Bluetooth system. It pairs easily with a smartphone, tablet or another Bluetooth device and is great for portability. While it does provide a big performance for a speaker of its size and could sound great in your large room, it may not be the best choice as a designated sound system for that space. If you’re looking for a device to use as a primary music system for your large open concept area, a SoundTouch 20 or 30 WiFi enabled system would be a better option. A SoundTouch system would connect to your home WiFi network and access music from music services such as Internet radio, Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, and iHeartRadio. They allow for easy control via the IR remote or SoundTouch app for computer, smartphone or tablet. Multi-room listening is also possible by adding additional SoundTouch systems. We hope this helps!

    • Best answerIt has a, I think it's called a Pc-15 jack? Basically you can Bluetooth a connection or use an auxiliary cable (like a headphone size plug in) some TVs have those. My LED TV has that size of a jack so I could (not tried) to use Bose as the output speaker. IF the TV has Bluetooth capability it might be able to push sound wirelessly but most TVs are designed to receive versus send.

    • Best answerI took mine back for that reason. I could never get consistent sound. At times it would be good, then other times it would be too low. Bose says its designed as a personal speaker. I have a portable radio that's 10 years old that has better volume. Sound isn't as good. The Bose speaker does have good sound, lacks volumes.

  • Q: Can SoundLink III speaker be connected to AC power source all the time without damaging the battery?  (11 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerAs far as I know of the answer is yes. Battery technology has improved greatly in the last decade. You usually no longer damage the battery by leaving it plugged in all the time, the battery charger usually detects a full charge on the battery and either turns off, or goes to trickle charge. None of my other items that use batteries have a problem with being plugged in all the time and work fine after being unplugged. Bose is a company that consistently builds high quality products so I'm sure it would be fine. (And no, I don't work for Bose).

    • Best answerIf your iTouch has Bluetooth capabilities, you’ll be able to make a wireless connection. If it doesn’t, than you can still use it by connecting a 3.5mm audio cable.
