Subwoofer doesn't work.

ayba, Amazon
8 November 2014
  • Summary: Subwoofer has intermittent sound and pops. Soundbar sounds okay. As other reviewers have written, the quality of the product is very hit or miss. Specifically with the subwoofer. Unlike others, mine did not work from day 1.

This unit is worse than the model it replaced

Dave Cook, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this POS to replace the previous POS because the wife likes the compact package and no need for an extra remote. This unit is worse than the model it replaced, $200+ worth of dumpster fodder.

Boston Acoustics TVee 26, Better than Nothing?

Leonard F. Zielenski, Amazon
23 August 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Price, Easy Connection and Setup Cons: Just about everything else. Slightly better (read richer, more bass) than built in TV speakers. Subwoofer looses connection and you must cycle the power to restore connection. Ambient sounds often overshadow dialogue necessitating overly loud average volume levels. Within a few months it stopped responding to the remote.

Disappointed

Joshua Lauzus, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: The subwoofer stopped working after 4 months. No reason why. Called support and they basically said that if I didn't have a receipt (which I don't anymore) than there's nothing they can do. Poor quality..

  • Summary: I could not make this system work so I boxed it up and sent it back Maybe not enough instructions for me but I don't want anything that I have to manipulate to use it.

Buy a different sound bar. Not this one.

Blair Westmoreland, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this from Fry's because the price was so low but I have to agree with the other negative comments about this item. The sound quality is amazing but the soundbar turns off and on for no reason. The subwoofer also doesnt work correctly. It also turns off and on. During a 1 hour episode the soundbar turned off and on at least four or five times. There is NO display on this soundbar either. There was no way to adjust anything.

unreliable junk

Michael T. Dagonese, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I've been through two of these. When it works, or sounds good. It hardly works though. The subwoofer randomly cuts in and out and loses connection when it feels like it. then sometimes it decides it doesn't even want to pair. Giant waste of my money.

Don't Bother

Ray Buckwalter "Raynman", Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: This is easy to install and for a small unit I was impressed with the sound quality -- that does it for the Pros. On initial set up the sound was clipping in and out. The directions read that the input amps can be trimmed using as small switch on the back with three settings, but this was only supposed to work for the Aux-1 input?

Piece of junk

N. Dexter, Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: Power and input cycle on and off at random times. Volume will inexplicably turn up or down. Wireless subwoofer decides to work when it wants to. I just read on other review sites that many other users are having this problem. Back to the store this goes.

Don't want 2 remotes...

Jeff M. Daniel "iejdaniel", Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: I couldn't get this to work with my DirecTV remote, so returned it. Pretty disappointing, as I have other BA product, but the inability to program to just one remote is a showstopper for me.
