Bose 3.2.1 GS Series II compact home theater system Review and Prices


The Bose 3.2.1 GS Series II home theater system is ideal for small spaces that can't accommodate a true five-speaker surround sound setup. It is also a great option when running cables to rear satellites proves aesthetically or logistically problematic.

Quality Sound for Small Spaces & Great Price


This system fits us best. Great variety in it's settings, because our living space is small, but our living and dining rms are open to each other. We now enjoy our tv without annoying any of our neighbors. Almost invisable on our black glass TV stand....

Product Specifications

The Bose CineMate II speaker system provides high quality home theater sound to get more from your HDTV experience. Just two compact speakers and a hideaway acoustimass module deliver sweeping cinematic sound that puts you in the middle of your movies, games and sports. Proprietary TrueSpace technology enables this immersive performance - without immersing you in equipment. There are no rear or center speakers, eliminating much of the wiring of traditional 5-speaker systems. Just connect the system right to your TV and control basic functions with a simple four button remote. The CineMate II system is an ideal choice for your first home theater speakers or a Bose surround experience in smaller rooms. The simplified, two speaker setup offers a hassle-free addition to your HDTV. And the improved acoustics provide exceptional value for home theater performance. Newly redesigned Articulated Array speakers - now with a striking, pure black finish - aesthetically match today's flat-panel TVs. The hideaway Acoustimass module reproduces resonant low notes that add drama to movies and games. And it now includes a dedicated bass control for your listening preferences. Place the module in a corner or out of view - all the sound seems to come from the compact speakers. The CineMate II speaker system only requires a few connections. It hooks up directly to your TV with minimal-if any-disruption to existing component connections. A small interface module houses your audio input from the TV and displays on/off status for your system. And a sleek, four button remote handles basic system functions.
