Bose Acoustimass 10

 

All-in-all a great offering from Bose, but too pricey for my taste. In fact, I think it is one of the better speaker systems from them (read some of my other opinions). If you're building a high-end system and want only the best, then they're probably...

Just Do It !

 

I have been wanting a Bose Acoustimass system for years. I listened to the Bose haters and initially got a Sony HTIB, then Panasonic HTIB neither lived up to my expectations of home theater. Then I tried the Def Tech 600, and 800, mirage nanostats, and...

Great for space saving speakers ; Window and floor shaking Bass ; Awesome center channel speaker for voice clarity

Proprietary wiring- the reason for half star demotion ; I need to find a good plastic surgeon to get the smile off my face

They just sound good, really good

 

As much of hearing is perception and not really frequency range, Bose does really well in the perception. Sure my old Klipsch speakers are much more powerful and louder, but the Klipsh will have my ears hurting after a couple of hours. Bose...

Small size, nice sound and the ability to place them on decorative stands

No specs and not really efficient

Consumer review by:

Bose , they just want your money!

 

Bose, Better Profits Through Marketing. That is actually what is really going down. Bose pricing does not make any sense, the low quality manufacturing materials and designs insure that you are definatly not getting the bang for your buck. The cheap...

Small and compact, some what to convenient

Oh my I don't know where to start. I've been a home theatre Tech for 2 years now and I have worked with audio systems for over 10 years. Bose is has terrible frequency response, Very poorly constructed, Bose is generally behind with Technology

Consumer review by:

Excellent for music and movies!

 

You cannot expect great things from these (or any other) quality speakers unless you have a quality receiver. My 8 year old Sony 64 bit processor couldn't bring out the best in the speakers, but a receiver that recognizes and can process a wider range...

Ease of installation/mounting, great remote audio connection across a large room. Awesome sound quality

Price...had to sacrifice junk food for awhile to make my wife happy

Consumer review by:

I heard the critics, now hear me.

 

If you looking for head banger music speakers, then look to getting some huge JBLs or facsimile and pay the $3000 or so for that pleasure. I have JBLs downstairs and they will rock your world. But if you want rich full sound, that's easy on your ears,...

Easy setup, small unobtrusive speakers, and GREAT rich sound for my needs

The large subwoofer/Acoustimass

Besides BOSE, who says BOSE is the best?

 

I hooked up the acoustimass speakers to Harman Kardon AVR 154 receiver. If you are into audio, you will know that although this receiver is not very powerful, the sound quality it delivers is excellent.

Looks ; Bass ; Size ; Ease of setup

Sound quality

Unwarranted negative reviews!!

 

Immediately after installing the system, I popped in the Eagles live concert (Australia) and queued in Hotel California, because I am very familiar with how well my B&W speakers perform with horns. This particular version is introduced by a single...

This system is perfectly matched for a decor designed to minimize the visual impact of surround sound. The sound is exceptionally clear and was selected to match my 2way B&W DM7mkII speakers, forming a 7.1 system powered by an Onkyo 807

I honestly don't have a bad word for this system. I did my research prior to deciding on it and knew exactly what to expect

An answer to the critics

 

I spent about a week shopping around for speakers and had a friend of mine who is specialized in speakers and deals a lot with Proficient, a top end speaker system manufacturer that is actually about 3 times the price of Bose. We roamed around from...

Unmatched Clarity ; Powerful Bass (if set in the right place and position) ; Powerful Sound ; Sleek Design ; Flexible Position (Small Size)

Apparently Some Frequency Limitation

Consumer review by:

Sounds great with a decent amp.

 

Basically, these speakers are great, providing you have a good amp or receiver. I would recommend at least 50 watts per channel, if not more. My old receiver is a pioneer with 50 watts per channel, just ordered a denon with 75 watts per channel. Also...

With a decent powerful clean-sounding amp, these speaker shine, but are still comparable to other speaker brands in the same price range

You need a good amplifier to power these for them to sound good. Can distort at really really high volume levels

Product Specifications

Hear exciting, lifelike sound for both music and home theater from Virtually Invisible speakers. The Bose Acoustimass 10 Series II home theater speaker system has five identical cube speaker arrays. So when a jet fighter thunders through your living room, whether from front to back or side-to-side, the sonic effect is seam-less and lifelike. Bose has engineered edge-of-your-seat performance for movies - and rich, concert-like sound for music. The sound quality, compact size and versatility give this system an advantage larger conventional speakers just can't match. The Acoustimass 10 speakers are specifically engineered for integrated, top-flight performance. Consider the way this system reproduces bass, for example. Many movies now include deep bass in all channels, including the surround channels. Conventional home theater systems require multiple large speakers - or two big sub-woofers - to bring you all that bass energy. However, the Acoustimass 10 system uses a single, compact source - the patent-ed Acoustimass module - to deliver all the bass that you find in today's soundtracks. With the advanced Bose Adaptive Energy Summing speaker design, this single (and easily hidden) module delivers deep, powerful bass for the front and surround channels. Direct/Reflecting Cube Speaker Arrays can be swiveled, allowing you to reflect sound off the walls as well as project it directly into the room. The result is full, spacious sound throughout the room - not just in one small "sweet spot." The Acoustimass 10 system arrives in one box, with a quick setup guide and clearly labeled wires that are easy to install. It makes top-of-the-line home theater audio convenient. Hearing is believing!
