Great sound

vicky, Amazon

  • Summary: Just received my second one. This one is working so far but I can't get my iPhone 6 to work with Bluetooth. Is anyone else having this problem? I don't think it can work with ios8. The bar sounds great and all remote features work fine. If anyone knows about the Bluetooth please let me know.

Speaker bar is great, wireless sub is garbage

  • Summary: Speaker is GREAT, it learned my samsung remote so I don't need an extra one laying around. The subwoofer died about a week after I bought it (had already tossed the box) so I couldn't return it to Amazon :(

Sound is good

Flygirl "Dash Trash", Amazon

  • Summary: The Boston Acoustics has a good sound for a sound bar system. It is really nice that the sub woofer can be adjusted at the speaker rather than only by the "base" adjustment for the total system. I live in a condo building with units on all sides and cannot have a booming base. I wish it had it's own remote control as it only learned the volume buttons from the TV remote, which makes adjust the volume difficult when watching TV.

Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30

Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30, Crutchfield
25 March 2012
  • Summary: Soud is great considering it is a sound bar. I located the speaker system on a speaker shelf above a LG TV. The setup was easy and programming my remote was easy. Conversely, the sensitivity of the infrared located in the speaker was very poor. A Crutchfield technical representative was 70% helpful 70% correcting this problem. He was somewhat surprised that Boston Acoustic did not correct this well known problem prior to shipping this product.
  • Pros: Great sound and easy setup.
  • Cons: Sensitivity of the remote; SERIOUS issues with remote control sensitivity - Soundbar grille should have an open port for the remote sensor (grille blocks some of the remote signal) -

BA TV30 Review

Steve P, Crutchfield
6 February 2012
  • Summary: First unit delivered had subwoofer case damage, then the sub quit. Unit was replaced. New one works well. Sound from the tv is greatly improved. Subwoofer adds just enough "oomph" to make the sound have depth. My only complaint is the sensitivity of the remote control. Unless I'm aiming directly at the soundbar, in a straight line to the sensor and only about 6 feet from the unit... it won't work.
  • Pros: - Vastly improved sound from the tv - Nice looking unit, mounted directly beneath the wall mounted flat screen - Easy to hook up
  • Cons: - SERIOUS issues with remote control sensitivity - Soundbar grille should have an open port for the remote sensor (grille blocks some of the remote signal) - Soundbar needs a way to adjust the sound quality (ie, bass, treble and midrange levels) for personal tastes

  • Summary: You have to drill a hole in the grill for the remote to work! Otherwise the sound is great, the unit is easy to set up and the wireless sub woofer is decent. The sound was a major upgrade from the built in speakers of my Samsung D8000. The remote was easy to program. This would be a 5 star product if you didn't have to DRILL A HOLE IN THE GRILL FOR IT TO WORK!!!
  • Pros: Good sound, good features, easy to set up, looks good.
  • Cons: The remote only works from three feet away unless you drill a hole in the grill!

TVee 30 Sound Bar

Dave, Crutchfield
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Great sound but unresponsive remote caused me to send it back. I could not deal with having to get up and walking closer to the TV to raise or lower the sound. Boston Acoustics needs to fix this problem.
  • Pros: Great sound for the $$$
  • Cons: Remote sensitivity

Dr J, Crutchfield
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Replaced a bose 5 speaker surround sound system because we were sick of looking at all those ugly bundles of black speaker wire and weird-looking speakers. BA soundbar is much cleaner in appearance and sounds good,too.
  • Pros: Good sound quality. Clean appearance. Minimal wires.
  • Cons: Sound level adjustments are too course. Frequently level 3 is not loud enough, but level 4 is too loud. Anything above level 7 or 8 is probably dangerous to your hearing. Remote control must be at a 90 degree angle to the sensor or it doesn't work.

Boston Accoustics Tvee Model 30

Jim, Crutchfield
23 January 2012
  • Summary: Delivery was prompt and trouble free, set up a breeze, and the sound is very good. The unit looks sharp and am very happy with it other than it seems that you need to be on a certain narrow angle directionally side to side from the front of the unit for the remote volume control to function. Works fine without the faceplate/speaker cover, so it seems to be a design flaw in the cover, perhaps. A bit frustrating sometimes but not a big deal. Otherwise a great unit.....
  • Pros: Easy set up, great sound
  • Cons: Remote control of volume will only function from a narrow angle in front of the unit.
