BA does better with the 2.1 systems

Konvert04, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: Mine didn't work so hot with the syncing to the base module. I bought the 2.1 system and it works way better. Great idea, I just think it needs work.

Sound quality isnt great and doesnt work with my direct TV remote

Timothy, Amazon
13 October 2013
  • Summary: Spent quite a bit of time troubleshooting and spoke with someone live as to why my Samsung TV and direct TV remotes dont work properly. Very frustrating and I am not considered technically challenged. As a result I disconnected the sound bar from my TV and now use it to play music via bluetooth.

Boston Acoustics TVee Model 26 Sound Bar

Amax/Mtns. of N. Ga., Crutchfield
26 February 2013
  • Summary: The web discreption said it would program to our DirecTV remote, even showed (1 of 5) a picture on our remote. It would not program, but it did have a remote in the box. The subwoofer just shook the pictures on the walls and upon turning it down it was non-existant. Most of all the sound volume or pressure was awful, and with 150 watts it sure was quiet. At it's full volume we could talk on the telephone while listening to NBC news.........................we returned it.
  • Pros: Cudos to crutchfield for taking it back
  • Cons: I am not going to use two remotes, and at age 62 this was an awful experience.

Installation Issue

RP, Crutchfield
22 January 2013
  • Summary: With my wall-mount, flat screen installation, the humongous AC wall wart made it impossible to install. Many sound bars like this are so light, but they achieve this by placing the AC/DC converter inside a wall wart instead of having it inside. There is simply no space at the power outlet. Even if recessed, the wall wart is too large to fit inside a reasonable box.
  • Pros: Looks great on the wall.
  • Cons: You cannot install it behind a flat screen TV on a wall without leaning the screen forward, which looks simply terrible in most homes.

Interferes with WiFi

Bill, Crutchfield
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Decent sound quality, if a little "boomy". It'll take time to manually tune the subwoofer to your room -- you can't do it via remote. Programming my remote to work the bar was cumbersome, but doable, and now it's done it works fine.
  • Pros: Easy set up.
  • Cons: I cannot use my Xbox 360 via WiFi (Xbox Live, Netflix, etc) to provide a video source while the soundbar is turned on. The wireless connection to the sub interferes with the Xbox's WiFi signal. This is a big CON in my house.
