When I sold my house, the speakers stayed installed in the ceiling. So I left with a Denon receiver and Pinnacle sub-woofer, and nothing else. I ordered a set of Bose 301's, another set of Bose 201's and used them as front and rear speakers, respectively. They sound great as stereo speakers, but the voices were too quiet before the center channel showed up. I was excited to see this discontinued product was available in a like-new condition. It is an excellent addition to the setup and and I am glad I have it.

After reading numerous reviews with conflicting experiences from other home theater enthusiasts, I decided to give the Bose VCS-10 a try for myself. The installation was a bit tricky since this center channel is not intended to be mounted on the ceiling. A custom bracket was made with four screws in the top of the speaker and two screws into the ceiling joist. The mount is solid and looks great so close to the ceiling. The center channel joined Bose bookshelf speakers and subwoofer powered by Onkyo HT-R590. The center channel sound was a bit muffled while watching movies with voices missing enunciation clarity of speech. A 10 minute sound calibration with the Onkyo setup mike fixed this problem. I now have crisp clear speech with a real life tone emitting this speaker and a perfect balance with the rest of the HT sound system. After all of my research and doubts from reading negative reviews, I now realize the Bose VCS-10 is a quality speaker.... Most disappointment is from incorrect sound system setup or pairing it with the wrong equipment. I'm glad I gave this center channel a chance... I have no regrets and look forward to years of HT enjoyment with this setup.

Excellent sound brings out the voices at a level not obtainable with the surround sound speaker.

I just did my HT setup...

Man i cant sing enough praises for all the components... I don't get the muted sounds on Bose claim.. i can hear everything loud n clear... each dialogue is as clear as it gets...
don't have to strain to hear em anymore... The tonality of the mid range... to the sharpness of the highs... its just beautiful.

201's are a bit bigger than i thought they would be... but look amazing once set up... and sound real good too... They dont have enough base you say... n i'd raise my sub to you (albeit briefly... it's heavy you know ;) )
but what clarity of sound.... it really makes the sound pop...

All the Bose's put together make a real good sound stage.

Now on to the non bose components...
Kudos to Polk audio for the woofer... it's a bit too loud for my taste... so its turned down to about 1/3'rd of its max o/p...but amazing difference the 12" sub makes.
Setting up was a real breeze... plugged in the lfe n adjusted the volume to my taste...

The Onkyo receiver is a real amazing piece o tech for its price... Audessy 2EQ (the auto sound setup) is really easy to do... sets up the speakers just right... i tried tweaking my setup...
but outside the sub (set to put out a wee bit too much) it had everything nailed...

Just an FYI... my living room is 15" x 15"
