Sound as great as they look!


The speakers have big, crystal clear sound! I'm using them as my front left and right in a 5.1 home theater system pushed by a 110 watt per channel Onkyo AV receiver. They sound far better than I expected! The are wall mounted and reflect sound from...

Only thing I can think of is their size. However acoustically, they sound much more full than the jewel cube speakers

Bose VCS 10 Center Channels

Bose VCS 10 Center Channels

Extremely Pleased With This Purchase


Great buy to protect your Bose SoundDock - plenty of space for all the SoundDock components as well as my IPod Touch, armband case and USB cord - very well constructed (like the padding).

Ended up going a different way


Nice looking bag, but mine was very difficult to use the zipper, possibly just due to the placement. In the end I traded for the other style case that Bose offers with the magnetic flip over lid. Very pleased with it.

Consumer review by: Diane Digs the 60s (

Wow! Amamzing!


This piece at the price of [$] is worth twice the price! The bag is so sturdy and practical, and it is quality! Again, it would be worth it at twice the price, and some places actually do charge almost twice the price! A SUPER bargain at a SUPER price!...
