Bose Acoustimass 16 Review


These now sell for $1,500 new through Amazon , and if I needed another, I'd pay it. The Acoustimass 16 is so much more than any of the smaller systems offered today for even more money.

Mr. C


This system does not sound like your typical movie theater sound. I have a Sony ED (no longer available) speaker system that more accurately reproduces highs and you can pinpoint the speaker location....but the speakers are big and take up space. The...

Great surround sound and effects radiate from all corners of the room

As a previous reviewer stated....all speakers have to connect to the sub-module, which makes for long hours of installing and running cables

Bose is the way to go


This system is awesome. I bought this almost two years ago from Newegg (rocks as usual) and I have not been disappointed in the least. As long as you have a 6.1 or better receiver you are set. I recently upgraded my dvd to a blueray and it really blew...

Bose Acoustimass 16 Home Theater Speaker Systems


very very good speakers,the tiny cubes go from 1khz to 8khz and the module from 20hz to 1khz so all you need to do is just add a tweeter pumping from 8khz to 20khz and all you'll need is a powerful receiver and a bowl of popcorn,sit back and enjoy!!!

Product Specifications

The promise of enhanced digital audio and video formats like DVDs has changed the perception of surround sound. You want a system that meets the demands of your media formats. Bose is leading the charge to help you realize your entertainment dreams. The Acoustimass 16 system is the Bose's premier 6.1 Virtually Invisible home entertainment speaker system. This system takes a five-speaker solution one step further by including a rear center channel for added drama and realism with more impactful special effects. It's the complete 6.1-channel surround sound experience for home theater enthusiasts like you. If you have a compatible 6.1 surround sound receiver and a very comfortable chair, you're well on your way to experiencing the remarkable benefits of this system. You may even stay for a double feature. The Acoustimass 16 system features Direct/Reflecting cube speaker arrays for rich, cinema-like sound. Small enough to blend with your decor, these speakers provide a level of performance you'd expect from much bigger speakers. Proprietary Direct/Reflecting speaker technology helps all six channels cover you with sound from the front, rear and center. That's surround sound. Redefined. The hidden star of the show is the Bose's redesigned powered Acoustimass module. Three downward-firing drivers and proprietary electronics help deliver the lowest audible notes and effects with distinct clarity across all channels at any volume. Hide the module out of sight, and all the sound seems to come from the tiny cube speaker arrays. From the ominous rumble of thunder to the sweet song of a cello, the Acoustimass 16 system offers an electrifying audio experience. So make the popcorn, settle in, and enjoy action-packed performance from the most respected name in sound.
