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

 

When I first purchased this speaker I was happy with it. I am now becoming aware of its limitations and am replacing with a Polk S35. Almost the same size, which I like, but much better performance and value. I don't know why anyone would buy Bose when...

Bose VCS 10 Center Channels

 

Did I get my moneys worth, yes, back in the day these were ok. They are not the center channel speaker you want for today's newer HT equipment as they had to be constantly adjusted to hear any dialog an even then it was not very clear. I would have to...

Bose 161 Gets the Job Done

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.
