Summary: The cubes sound decent but the overall package is lacking because of the subwoofer. The first thing I did is replace the subwoofer with an $800 12" JBL which requires running your speakers directly into the receiver. So then more speaker wire is required. When it was all said and done, not including the receiver, I paid over $2000. A bit pricey for something that only sounds decent but that is how to get the best out of a bose system.
