Downward-firing drivers deliver the lowest audible notes and effects with clarity and balance

System setup is also clear--and clean--with the SL2 wireless surround link (sold separately). This optional accessory eliminates the need to run wires to rear speakers from the front of your room.

The Power of Acoustimass Technology

The innovation driving this 5.1 speaker system is the powered Acoustimass module. Free from the audible distortion that can betray its location, the Acoustimass module can be placed almost anywhere--behind furniture or drapes, for example--and the rich, broad spectrum of music and movie sound appears to come from the small cube speakers.

The powered Acoustimass module adds drama to music and movies. Downward-firing drivers and proprietary technology deliver the lowest audible notes and effects with clarity and balance. Acoustimass speaker technology enables powerful low-frequency effects. Place the module almost anywhere in your room and all the sound appears to come from the cube speakers.

The Virtually Invisible cube speakers--each only 3" high--deliver high-fidelity sound for music and movies. Enjoy premium performance from speakers so small you can place them nearly anywhere and they seem to disappear into your décor. And automatic protection circuitry prevents the drivers from being overdriven to provide increased reliability while minimizing interference with the listening experience, giving you a long life of high performance.

They are very clear, and give me some good frequency response.

It seems that people either love 'em or hate 'em... After hearing these at a friend's house, (a guy who has good ear's, and can set up a system), I was very impressed.

This product is amazing for a family room or a nice sized room that you sleep in.

NOTE: a large amount of reviews fall under the "Bose Bashing" category. While I don't particularly like Bose products, this review was written from an objective viewpoint based off experience with this product.

These speakers are great for watching movies- especially "special effects" heavy movies, where surround sound is particularly important (such as "transformers"). The subwoofer is amazing. I have heard many woofers that sound "sloppy", only good for music with a heavy, and distinct bass part (such as hip-hop, or techno). The Bose "Lower Frequency Effects" module is different, in that it is controlled and smooth, not overbearing. The "surround sound" effect is greatly enhanced by the small satellites- because of their size they don't "overcrowd" the room with sound. Watching movies is a pleasure with this system.

Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about listening to music. The main problem is that there is no substitute for diaphragm size. Sound is produced by moving air. Small speakers simply aren't able to move enough air to accurately produce instrumental music. Listening to a Santana CD, the sound seems distant, not immersive: The sound is not rich.

So, if you want a minimally intrusive speaker system for you home theater, this is the product for you. If you enjoy listening to music, I would suggest looking at tower speakers.

If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them.

UPDATE

It seems that dialogue doesn't come through very well. Turning up the level on the center channel helps a little, but there's always this lack of clarity and depth (especially with male voices). In general, listening through these speakers leaves one with the feeling that there's "something missing." It's not about volume either, since a good speaker should sound good even at low listening levels.

I don't own one of these Bose systems, but as a sound engineer of 30 years plus, I have to defend Bose, when I see some of the terrible reviews they sometimes get. It seems that people either love 'em or hate 'em... After hearing these at a friend's house, (a guy who has good ear's, and can set up a system), I was very impressed. He does "concert night" at his home, and we listen to great music video concerts, (mostly jazz rock), such as Steely Dan,Sting,Lee Ritenour, Jeff Beck,etc...These videos have great sound, and they sound wonderful on his system! They also sound wonderful on my own huge JBL system, but in some ways, I actually like his better! My system will go louder,(and we like full scale concert volume),but his is loud enough to hurt,in his moderately sized 15x15 living room, and that's with very clean, full, sound...One reviewer mentioned that his bass module produced "farting" sounds. I never heard anything like that on my friend's system, and we like concert level bass. I have to wonder what size room it would take to cause these things to sound like that, and at what volume levels. Our listening levels are well above anything you would hear at a movie theater, and louder than most rock concerts we have been to! It makes me wonder if the reviewers are setting these things up properly.One reviewer mentioned that his ears were drawn to the bass unit, due to a high crossover point. I do not hear anything like that at my friend's house, nor did I hear that at any of the demos that you can see at BJ's and other places. In fact, I marveled at the stereo sound field, and how articulate and spacious these things sounded.(I might suggest that keeping the bass mod near the center of the stereo field, with the satellites slightly out in front should cure this problem)..Read more ›

I had a passive subwoofer previously on a patched together system. I was surprised how dramatic an improvement an actively powered subwoofer (at least one this big) can make. When the Rohan horses go thundering through in Lord of the Rings, I couldn't believe the difference. The satellites provide really crisp sound and are quite unobtrusive (makes the wife happy). I think you have to be more careful about placing the speakers, though, to make a seamless sound field since they are so small.

Hook up was the easiest I've ever had, with all speaker cables factory labeled. One big cord runs to the amp outputs from the bass module, and simple plugs run from the bass module to your speakers.

One caution- you'll need Bose wall brackets to hang these from your walls since the back of the satellites are threaded for a screw. I used to hang my previous speakers from heavy-duty picture hangers!

Cmon people. I cant stand it when im thinking of buying a produc, then we have a bunch of people who clearly have an agenda. If you do not OWN this product do not review. I dont care if a friend of a friend owns it and you hate it. I do not believe that any Bose speaker has HORRIBLE sound. It may not live up to some peoples expectation but Bose doesnt make a bad sounding speaker.

Verified Purchase
I purchased the Acoustimass 6 (Amazon) in November to replace a Panasonic SC-PT960 home theater system. The Panasonic provided adequate sound but was quite strident sounding. To upgrade my system, I bought the Bose Acoustimass 6 with speaker stands, an Onkyo TX-SR508 (Amazon) receiver (Defective, replacement took 2 days, no charge) and a Samsung BD-C5500 (Amazon) blu-ray disc player which included the apps for TV@Internet (the Pandora radio and Netflix apps are great). Set-up was straight-forward and positive with the color-coded wiring. After adjusting the receiver and fine-tuning the Acoustimass module (bass setting), I was very pleased with the total sound, particularly the ability of the small speakers to create the feeling of "presence", especially individual voices and musical instruments. The musical reproduction is excellent. The surround effect with DVDs was seamless and accurate where 'point source' was intended. I would recommend this relatively inexpensive system to anyone. The sound is a vast improvement over the TV speaker sound. I have never purchased a Bose product that didn't provide total satisfaction.
