Must connect a good receiver, sounds good and crisp at low volume trying to adjust the sub to its full potential after that , beautiful.

Great valie for the price i paid!
Great system awesome sound we love it! I bought this product because i needed a system that would fill my room with sound. There was nothing that i disliked. Compared to my APex surround sound, it is definitely the high end system i was looking for at a great price. Great valie for the price i paid!

Great set of home movie theater speakers
Over 10 years ago when I bought the Bose Acoustimass 10 Series II Speaker System, I read MANY, MANY reviews. Boiled down, it came to this:<br>- this is the least-expensive yet serious entry-level system into audiophile home theater speaker system<br>- audiophiles cringe when hearing of 'Bose' speakers, because Bose engineers aren't interested in producing accurate reproductions of music, they want it to sound GREAT to our human ears. Same goes for me.<br><br>I have had these paired to my Onkyo TX-SV515PRO since the day I brought them home. My Onkyo is set flat for bass and treble and they sound fantastic for movies in Dolby 5.1. My Onkyo is not a DTS receiver. You really feel the movies and it's very immersive. The voices come from the center channel which you put as close to the center of your TV as you can, the left and right speakers provide most of the action and environment and the rear speakers are exactly like they're supposed to be: invisible and silent until something actually happens back there. Like an explosion from behind you or when a jet flies over your head and past you from the camera/screen's perspective. Some folks make the early mistake or haven't yet learned you're NOT supposed to hear surround/rear speakers all the time, only when stuff happens behind you.<br><br>I played with subwoofer positioning to get the most out of it, and for me I found turning it sideways with the port facing the corner gets the most out if it in my particular room. The instructions say face it right out into the room toward the audience but that didn't produce enough low end. I didn't want to bump up the bass on the receiver, so I found the best position for my room.<br><br>I can highly recommend this system if you really, really enjoy movies. Top Gun, Transformers, and more sound great and when you're watching a comedy or other stuff it sounds perfect as well, clear voices, accurate sounds coming from where they should.<br><br>Something that surprises and impresses me with this system even to this day is how quiet it can be and how LOUD it can be. If you're trying to not disturb others in another room, you can hear voices clearly. When you want to feel like you're living Black Hawk Down you can do that too.<br><br>I recommend these speakers to others, and one day will upgrade my receiver, I think the 80 watts per channel I'm sending to the speakers now is underpowered and would love to hear it on 100 watts or more per channel.Read full review

Look else where
Really? you really wanna know how good its sound? let me tell you after I hooked up the system the sound is horrible,the high and mid were all mixed bag,it's has no clarity,the Sub.is weak the sub has no amp build into it so its using and depend on your receiver or amp to power,you must replace the Sub.with an amp build in,Bose did a good job in advertized there products with all the hype,I would not recommend to a friend,there are other choices out there sound a lot better for a whole lot less,I gave this Bose to my sister and bought Klipsch RF-7 II and RF-82 II and the sound is outstanding,the difference is day and night.
