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.

Very good system


The SW has 2 cross over that will make your house shake or you can completely remove the bass entirely. When I got these I did not have much of a AV receiver but the Yamaha changed that. They do need to be pushed to get the sound you want. Light weight...

I am not a audiophile by any means, but I do know what sounds great. My friends have speaker systems they mixed and matched. These bose will run with them all day long. I bought them in 11-2006. They are pushed by a Yamaha RX-V1600

What's not to like, Great bass, wonderful mids, super highs

Great Little Size Speaker


OK bootom line of the other poeple that wrote - reviews on this set of speaker is the amp or reciever that they have must have a cheap one. I think this set needs a very good one and theh these speaker sound great because mine do. I have a Yamaha...

Love the Size of the Speaker, they come in 3 color so you get a good chance of matching your room. They SOUND GREAT, I almost didn't buy them because of some of the reviews but but THEY A GREAT

The bass size of the speaker is large and heavy but the only Con I could come up with and it not much of a con because that why this set has so much bass

Fantastic System!


There is not much to dislike about this system.

Typical of Bose - crystal clear across the enitre range. Rich, deep, but natural bass fulfills the system.You can clearly hear each instrument like they were in your living room. Conversations are also natural and clear. Outstanding

As is normal for a system like this - wires ; However, Bose goes to great lengths to make it all as easy to properly connect them as possible. Color coding & pre-labeling of the wires and connectors is very much appreciated

Awesome bang worth the price


For those who claim Only HIGH and No LOWS, IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T USED BOSE YET. I am using BOSE with YAMAHA RXV 661. This combination will blow the Sox off your Walls. I can calibrate the sound to my liking and YAMAHA gives me all the options. BOSE...

Sound, Sound, Sound, Aesthetics

Ribbon Cable, should have the capacity to upgrade to 7.1-9.1 without the hassle. change Ribbon Cable, buy more speakers and You are good to go

Bose Blows -all highs-no lows-I'm sorry you bought Bose


over priced for the crappy sound it reproduces. I could put a tweeter in a tin can and make it sound better. The only reason people buy it is because of the mass advertising, but once you hear them side by side with similar satellite speakers from...

People who like to be brainwashed by media will LOVE them

cheap construction, over priced. The "sub-woofer" (more like bass module) is profoundly inadequate

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 7 Floorstanding Speakers


If space and room size is an issue! Then these can work for you! A nice high quality amp is a must... Proper adjustment of the amp is also important.... Speaker placement and postion is also very important... And quality wire... Under these...

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.
