Good rear speakers, with a weak center channel


For an indepth review of the Bose 161s (rear speakers) please look at my other reviews.

Rear speakers are fantastic. Great bass, wide sound and loud

Center speaker is weak and lacks range, and this kit is expensive

Not my cup of tea


I own an acoustimass 15 and bought this set to improve upon the sound. It simply didn't do a great deal of improvement. I even called Bose Tech support to be sure I connected everything properly. Don't get me wrong, the system sounded good, but, I...

respectable sound

not Hi fidelity by a long shot

Excellent companion to AM5


This product is an excellent choice if you already have a satisfying stereo system. It is exactly as described by Bose on their web page. When properly balanced it provides excellent vocal reproduction and accurate musical fill. It specifically does...

If you know all about SPEAKERS


I am a Bose fan and I got this VCS 30 to add along with my 501 Bose speakers so I can get good surround speakers along with a great center channel speaker and to tell you the truth I'm very much pleased with this equipment, it adds more life like...

Television speaker's


Don't get me wrong I have nothing against BOSE, in fact I own BOSE products, its just I can't recommend this V C S 30 speaker system. I have an existing BOSE AM5 series 3 and upgraded it with V C S 30. The AM5 is good but the V C S 30 is not so good,...


the power, built and sound is not quite pleasing

Quite Possibly The Worst Product Ever Built


I think that I have made it clear that Bose is by far the worst brand ever. As you know, I have already tested out the Bose VCS 10 center. Well, the Bose VCS 30 consists of the VCS 10 and two Model 100 speakers. I think this is supposed to be an...


Ahhh!!!! The VCS 10!!!, It's Bose

Bose VCS 30


When I originally purchased the system, I had "thrify" written all over my wallet! You see, I didn't want to spend to much on my center/rear speakers, but I did want quality sound. (Sounds like a serious problem doesn't it?)

Surprised by the great sound! I thought it would be a step down. Surprise

The 100's are a bit ugly and bulky, and lots of plastic

Very Nice Sound


I have never been seriously interested in any BOSE products

Great Full and Rich Sound

Mounting requires to many holes in wall
