Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will. Be glad to assist you.

Yes, you can definitely play your Iphone through your Bose Cinemates. All you need is an 1/8" stereo to dual RCA cable that you can pick up at Radio Shack. Then simply plug the 1/8" end into the Iphone headphone jack, and the RCA Ends into the Bose Red and White input jacks.

My Cinemate system is an older model and there are no red and white jacks.
Expert:  Aric replied 6 years ago.
What does the Cinemate have for inputs? Is it a small jack similar in size to the headphone jack on the Iphone?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
There is a separate module that is used for the remote and it has a red and white jacks and says TV audio.

Thank you for the reply. Then you would connect it as I described above to the Red and White jacks on the module. If these are already occupied by the TV then get a pair of RCA splitters so you can keep both TV and Iphone plugged in at the same time.
