Unreliable

Bruthabuz, Costco
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought a new computer that came with no speakers. I bought this Bose Companion 3 System two weeks ago. Actually, this is my second one. I could not get any sound at all out of the first one I bought. So I took it back and exchanged it for this one. This one has worked fine for the past two weeks. I was impressed with the quality of sound, about what I expected from a company with the reputation of Bose. Earlier this evening I began watching a DVD.
  • Pros: sound quality compact design
  • Cons: unreliable so far

Tinny Tinny Boom Boom

Frankly My Dear, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: If you want to blast your neighbors out of their skulls, this is the system for you. The bass thumps even at the lowest setting. Play it at a reasonably mellow low volume, and you'll notice how irritatingly tinny the satellite speakers are. People who complain, "no highs no lows, must be Bose" are dead wrong about this set. I say where is the mid range? Where's the mellow warm tones? I hate what this does to my music! Plus the speakers cut in and out.

NOT..worth the money.

Justmyopinion "nothing but the internet", Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: Overpriced at least by 2 and 1/2 times. Take my word for it. I have heard speakers perform for half a century. Using pro rata logic value received is about 1/3 of price. Just an opinion. ie was expecting alot more!

OK sound, poor quality of materials

John E. Scott, Amazon
2 January 2008
  • Summary: This is one of those products you really don't know what your getting. I found this out after a failure of the Companion 3's. A lightning strike took out the Companion 3's. So I decided to take them apart. Boy, what a eye opener! Being a amateur audiophile since I could read the title on a record album. I was sorely disappointed in the Bass driver which was made of a paper composite and a foam surround. Not what I expected from $250 speakers!

Not bad, but serious lack of midrange

Ghys, Amazon
26 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought these as a small system for ambient music in the dining room. Pros: - Stylish and elegant - Build quality (feels sturdy) - Deep bass; for sure, not comparable to the 12in subwoofer in my home theater (paid 3x the price of this entire system) but still quite impressive - Does not create hearing fatigue (probably due to low distortion) Cons: - Lacks midrange; the vocals, especially for male singers, seriously lack body. Same for saxophone.
