Let your music be the focus with the Acoustimass 5 Series III speaker system from Bose. The elegant black components will look spectacular in any room while delivering stunning sound that seems to come from everywhere. An Acoustimass module and two Direct/Reflecting speakers are all that's needed to fill the room with sound.
The revolutionary Acoustimass module delivers the lower frequency notes that add richness to any audio experience. Through advanced engineering and design the module achieves an "out of sight, out of mind" experience where all of the sound seems to come from the cube speakers.
The Direct/Reflecting speaker cubes have been engineered to mimic the experience of a live performance where most of the sound you hear is reflected off the walls, floor and ceiling of the venue. The two modules will fill the room with sound that will immerse you into the listening experience. It is like having your own private concert hall.
A bit under-rated
This review is from: BOSE® Acoustimass® 5 Series III Speaker System (Black)
Pros: High and mid-range sounds from the cubes are very crisp, especially during gaming. System has a good all-round sound for the xbox 360, dvds and for music but fall short of excellent. The cubes deliver an amazing sound volume for thier size and look great on the top of the piano.
Cons: Bose should make it clear that the base module is not a powered sub-woofer. It does not deliver any where near the lows of a powered sub. This did not matter to me because I planned to add a sub anyway. Base module is not all that easy to hide.
Other Thoughts: I've read many negative reviews about these (positive as well). I would rate them an 8.5 to 9 on a scale of 10. I played with these quite a while during set-up. Wiring, placement and amp quality are huge variables with this system. If the buyer expects subwoofer lows from the bass module, it won't happen. The bass module is not easily driven, a weak, low current amp won't adequately drive it. I replaced inferior speaker wire with high quality Monster Cable and it made a significant improvement. Lastly, the bass module provides PLENTY of (non-sub) bass when wired and placed correctly.
