Pretty good for the price I got

 

They are so clean, sharp looking in ANY space..just the look is kool and I have that big box OUT on top of my armoire..no one notices it really cause it's black and I went from one speaker on left & right to two cubes , that are VERY HEAVY, so they...

I had NO CLUE that Bose now gives you a huge discount when you trade in your old Bose,so these came to a little over $200 .. if you hook these up to ur TV using OPTICAL wire,so EASY, the sound is OUTRAGEOUS!. has to go thru the receiver

I can not see these being used in a large space..I have a studio and it's just enough

Ok in small rooms, but lacks in sound quality.

 

The Bose Acoustimass 5 is a well constructed and beautifly designed speaker system. The tiny, attractive, direct/ reflecting cube speakers provide a powerful

Attractive design, no distorsion at high volumes, compact speaker system ; Very nice crispy sound and excellent treble, cube speakers are made with an efficient direct/ reflecting tecnology

The passive " Acoustimass module" reproduces very weak bass, not at all deep and rich. Dissapointing midrange deficiency, easely localizable subwoofer ; abnormal Bose's connection creates problems with the reciver ; Very expensive for the value

Great sound for small speakers.

 

I have had this speaker set for almost ten years and it still works great. It works as good as the speakers in the theaters but within a small form. Now, the value of $399 is better. I recommend ths speaker set to those who think small is what they ......

The speakers are small but create great clear sound. The subwoofer also can be hidden with its small rectangular form

You are required to connect the speakers to the subwoofer first and the subwoofer is not powered

Product Specifications

The size will surprise you and so will the sound. You will expect much larger speakers when you hear the Acoustimass 5 Series III speakers. Yet the spacious sound actually comes from two tiny cube speaker arrays and a hideaway Acoustimass module. The improved cube speakers offer you enhanced performance, contemporary styling and a smaller size. And the improved module fills your room with even deeper, fuller bass. These Virtually Invisible speakers are the definitive answer to the question of how to combine spacious sound with space-saving design. Though the Virtually Invisible speaker design of the Acoustimass 5 speaker system may seem like a disappearing act, the performance is quite noticeable. Full, resonating bass and crystal-clear highs envelop your room in beautiful stereo sound. It's all the result of intense research and testing. Years of work were necessary to develop this high-fidelity system with space-saving design. The Acoustimass 5 speakers accomplish what no conventional speakers can claim - big, lifelike sound without big, bulky speakers. Experience enhanced sound from the most affordable, next-generation Acoustimass stereo speakers. The Acoustimass 3 system delivers bass that's the deepest and fullest yet. Two single-cube speakers - smaller than ever before - are elegantly designed to fit virtually any decor. And the module easily hides away behind furniture or off in a corner. So all the lifelike sound seems to flow from the tiny cubes. Now or in the future, turn your Acoustimass stereo speakers into a front channel solution for home theater by simply adding the compatible Bose VCS-10 center channel speaker. For full five-speaker surround sound, add the VCS-30 center/surround speaker package. Hearing is believing!
