Customer Reviews for Bose Acoustimass 10 Series V Home Entertainment Speaker System (Black)
Satisfied with the sound but the connections are not designed for someone 1) using a projector and all equipment at the rear of the room AND 2) wants to use in-wall wiring for a neat set-up. If the bass module could be placed in the rear of the room (and not the screen end) the aggravation could be somewhat alleviated. But one has to run all wiring from the reciever up the walls and over the ceiling to the other end of the room (screen-end) and then take the connectoins back the same path from the acoustimass bass module to the rear speakers. I dont know if all that additional wiring will affect the audio quality but it is indeed very frustrating!
The satellite speakers speakers use 2.5" paper cones which are neither small enough to be considered a tweeter or large enough to cover the entire midrange spectrum. What you're left with is a highly-compromised system. One which cannot recreate high notes (i.e. the "sparkle" that makes cymbals come alive) or truly deep bass (the rumble that you *feel* instead of just hear), and relies on the "bass module" to cover the midrange frequencies typically handled by the satellite speakers. This quite literally leaves a hole in the middle of the frequency range and means deep male voices will be coming from the box in the corner instead of the centre/stereo channels where it should.
For this amount of money you can buy a pair of bookshelf speakers that dig deeper, reach higher, and cover the entire frequency range with no gaps. Add in a bargain-basement subwoofer and you will have an experience that absolutely destroys this system quality-wise. It's almost embarrassing.

I know the specs on Bose speakers don't match up well with other high end speakers, but listening to them tells a different story. The sound fills the room and the speakers become invisible sonically. Absolutely love these speakers.
Please be aware that the subwoofer is huge. You will need to allow plenty of room for it.
