The Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV consists of four rotating cube speakers, a center speaker, and a powered Acoustimass module.

The module plugs into your wall and powers itself as well as the attached speakers. The module then connects to your home theater receiver via a special multi-pin connector.What distances can you establish between speakers and module?
Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV comes with 20-foot speaker wires. Bose even has a recommended setup that optimizes acoustics in your home space. The setup makes for an intense movie-theater sound that is equally resonant regardless of where viewers sit in relation to the screen. Bose recommends that you position your speakers in the following way:
- Front speakers: Position two front speakers on the left and right side of your television, at least six feet apart, to create a "sound image" wider than your screen.
- Center speaker: Place the center speaker above, below or on top of your television, creating the impression that the sound is coming directly from your screen.
- Rear speakers: Position the two rear speakers on the left and right side of viewers, behind them at ear level, so the viewer feels as if at the center of the sound.
- Module: Stand the module at the same end of the room as your television, at least two feet away.
The module is the Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV subwoofer. The module supplies adjustable bass that naturally heightens or diminishes according to the acoustics in your home theater. Depending on where you position the module, the bass may seem pronounced or weak based on your space's unique acoustics. Turn the BASS control on the module clockwise for more bass sound. Turn the BASS control on the module counter-clockwise for less bass sound.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Bose.
