Summary: Terible sound! I highly recomend not spending $1,000.00 or more for a piece of crap speaker that sounds like an old lady yelling at me. Dont buy this or your money goes down the toilet! This is why it sound terible... 1. Not clear 2. Its only loud because of so much static 3. It cracks too much 4. The name is retarded If you want good speakers get Klipsch or any other Klipsch brand, Yamaha, Pioneer, or Polk Audio. Now have a great day everyone!
Summary: very very good speakers,the tiny cubes go from 1khz to 8khz and the module from 20hz to 1khz so all you need to do is just add a tweeter pumping from 8khz to 20khz and all you'll need is a powerful receiver and a bowl of popcorn,sit back and enjoy!!!
Summary: I am a serious audiophile, I recently purchased a Bose AM16. Here is a very accurate & unbiased experience. The size & configuration are good. It is an excellent subwoofer giving a very low down, accurate, un directional & bass with no driver fatigu fit for music & movies. The cubes are a real compromise lacking in the high frequency & low mid frequence response but above average performance in terms of the size & placing versatility.
Summary: Best Surround set ever! Great sound! Perfect for movies and also ideal for music. The Bose set produces a very warm sound en can blast every simelar set away. I use this set in combination with a Denon avr3806 and a Denon 3910 dvd player, take you're time to adjust all the settings, tis is very important, if not done well the sound will be very, I mean very very poor!
Summary: Buyer Beware the "bass" module only goes down to 46Hz (most less expensive speaker systems will go down to 29 or 30Hz such as the Energy Take 5.2 and even cheap Paradigm speaker packages). The Bose Bass module reaches up to 200Hz. Here is where the problem begins... The little cube speakers go down to 280Hz. So you are missing sound from 200Hz to 280Hz.
