Unrivaled.. In this price category.

  • Summary: My father and I have been competing for years, spending multiple $1,000's on home systems, like B&W's and my personal favorites the powered Infinity Overatures. That being said, every time my Dad comes over, and I have my Bose Campanion 5's playing, he says, "Holy Geeze! Wow!
  • Pros: Excellent clarity from mid to high range, and powered sub hits the lows very nicely. I have them strategically placed for sound and stealth, but when found, they are deceivingly small and elegant. Guests usually just shake their heads in disbelief. Love the durable feel of everything especially t...
  • Cons: Just one. Missing something if you haven' t figured it out yet. Lower mid range. But for the price it is outstanding and I get nothing but random compliments, without even asking!

Bose Companion 5 is a Great Choice for the Computer

hnovitsky, Crutchfield

  • Summary: For all normal computer sound requirements, as well as, decoding 5.1 surround Blu-Ray audio, these are great speakers to have. I really like their small footprint and modern look. Note, though, if you are a serious music person - see the Cons listed.
  • Pros: Very small footprint. Aesthetically pleasing. Easy control.
  • Cons: If you really intend to use your computer for serious music listening, then you should consider the AudioEngine 2+ and AudioEngine Subwoofer. I have them on a second system and they rock!

Excellent but could be great with a software equalizer program.

  • Summary: These are excellent speakers but they do have a few drawbacks. The volume puck has no indication of the current volume level, and (as always with Bose products) the ultra high frequency response is way too loud for me. The volume adjustment is a little too sensitive as well, so be careful with it.

Powerfull System

  • Excerpt: Brilliant sound at all levels. Powerful 2.1 channel speakers that have good eye appeal. The "Control Pod" which looks a lot like a hockey puck is easy and convenient to use within arm's range to adjust the volume of you favorite tune. Mixer software would be a plus in order to adjust the treble.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Lack Of Mixer Software, Mixer

Good, not great

WAMaruna, Crutchfield
29 March 2013
  • Summary: I have had the Companion 5, ordered from Crutchfield, about two weeks as I write this. I own both the Bose and the Klipsch Pro-Media 2.1 system. I find the Bose to have a very 'bright' sound, almost metallic, with strong bass from the acoustimass module.
  • Pros: Simulated sound dispersion, life-like experience, strong bass
  • Cons: Lacking in lower mid-range to my ears
