Great buy, like it !

 

Simple hook up, speaker wire and good instructions included. Cube speakers sound great, a little soft on the bass. Good product for a simple compact speaker system, if you're looking for a full blown surround sound system this is not it. Good for the...

They're amazed that such huge sound can come from such TINY speakers - and so am I. I mean, it's relatively easy to get clear, loud noise out of a big bulky ugly squarish box, but these things are tiny little cubes. It's a step forward for mankind if...

Bose Acoustimass 5

 

The bang for the buck of these AM 5's is incredible, my speakers are almost 22 years old and sing as well as the day i got them, new from CC for $650. Lke many Bose speakers they sound better cranked up then at low volumes but thats true of almost any...

Bose Acoustimass 5 Series III

 

Well I am not here to bash Bose or the "Boseos" out there who think that Bose has engineered the greatest speakers ever manufactured. I have used the AM5 system for over 10 years and I have to say that I have been satisfied with my experience. I am...

Bose Acoustimass 5 Series III

 

I bought them for $50 dollars at garage sale. The foam around the speaker was obviously ripped so i hot glued it worked for about 2 weeks. Today I opened them (dual 6 inch speakers) and I knew i had to buy the foam that solves the problem for them. I...

Nice System but weak Bass

 

The system is great, but I had to switch to a powered subwoofer to get the sound I wanted. I was really disappointed with the bass performance.

Attractive Design, Easy Setup, Easy to Mount, Great Sound Quality

Weak Bass

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!
