Good speaker, but not the usual Bose quality.
I bought this for my RV. Couldn't hear the TV speakers over the rooftop A/C and thought this would solve the problem. It sounds okay and works better than the TV, but there is still some distortion during louder moments in shows and movies. Overall average sound and not worth the price. Also, would it have killed them to put a power button on it, and maybe a few more? Having to use the fussy and complicated remote to do anything with it is annoying.

I bought Solo 5 for my TV and was satisfied, then heard about the Bose TV Speaker, bought it, much better for TV. Same kick, but is better designed for "talk", and expandable for more Base modules. Both very affordable!

So I decided to put this Solo 5 on my desktop computer with the S/PDIF optical out, had to buy a sound card that supported optic out.


I am a SiriusXM subscriber, I could not find a music situation I did not like..... Period!

If you are a Hard Base thump-er, don't bother. Go with Bose TV Speaker because it's expandable. But if you like almost anything else, for the price, give it a shot.

I'm 59 years old, I love music! As of this post, I'm listening to Queen on channel 27. Not a bad test in it's self.... I'm all over the board.

Good Luck,

Thank you Bose, for letting me afford it.


UNBELIEVABLE sound for music. Now having both, the Sole 5 is

"Disposable" Was good until it broke
This is a good bedroom speaker or a cheap upgrade for a small den or living room, but it will eventually break. One night while watching TV, the speaker just shut off. Tried everything and it won't turn back on. Apparently it's a common issue that happens to this speaker. We had it for about 3 years and hoped it'd last longer. They want $99 to repair, or you can buy the refurbished ones from the outlet for the same price.

Disapointed, annoyed.
Had this for about 4 months now. I'm disapointed with the overall quality of sound and annoyed by the difficulty to use.
First, it's hard to tell that the sound is better than that in my TV. Then dialogue mode is very disappointing. It makes little difference.

Then there is volume control. I can't seem to get any remote to control the volume on this thing other than the bose remote. So I need to have the TV remote for streaming services, the DVR remote for satellite, and the bose remote to control volume. I would rather just adjust the volume on my TV and have it transmit to my soundbar that adjustment, sadly, I can't make that work. And when I do adjust the volume, there is no visual indicator of volume level so time consuming fine tuning by ear is required. Yes, I talked to Bose about this, and their solutions did little to help. If this had ARC, the problem may be solved.

Overall, this is more of a hassle than it's worth.

Happy but Disappointed
I was very excited to get a Bose speaker that I could afford always have wanted one although I had one as a teenager 200 years ago lol.
The sound and look of this product is very good and it works with the television very well
My disappointment was with the wonderful universal remote, and customer service. I called to get some help with getting the remote control to connect to the television a new one. Should be no problem but it was. I called, had an appointment with a new employee and old employee, probably her boss /manager. They were both very nice. When they could not help me, approximately a half an hour later, I was left with was the feeling of "oh well, I guess it doesn't work sorry....?I'm sure this universal is quite expensive. It's very heavy and I'm sure it works very very well. It should have worked very well on my television. Oddly enough it ended up turning on the TV with the DVD player code and the DVD player code didn't turn on the DVD player but it turned on the TV I can do that now, just not any of the other buttons. Just off and on.
I like the product has a good sound Don't really want another one I just wanted the universal remote to work with it. Signed happy and disappointed

Nice for bedroom
We bought this for our master bedroom. It is just the soundbar and its small. It was quick and easy to hook up and mount - probably 15 min total. The sound is sharp and the BASS is nice. I’m not sure this would be the product for a large living room or family room, you’d likely need a larger bar and subwoofer. But it is perfect for our master bedroom.

Big disappointment
I bought the Bose soundbar 5 and was initially pleased with product. After 1 week the optical cable stopped working and I decided to use the blutooth fuction. Now I have problems with the volume. I cant raise it and it remains on low. It was a complete waste of money. I thought buying Bose would be better quality but next time I will just buy a Vizio.

Does this Bose have a good sound and bass?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2019
  Evaluation of a speaker's sound character is a very personal and individual thing. We provide a 60 day home audition period for just this reason.
Is this a good bass sound for music?

Is this a 2017 or 2018 model?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2018
  Consumer audio manufacturers don't have a yearly product release schedule. Products are typically released when a significant improvement becomes available as a result of research and development. I see this product as having been available as far back as 2016. This has nothing to do with it's quality or performance.
