Pros Tiny and cheap.
Cons At the price, none really.
Recommended it? Yes

They are tiny,sound good and are cheap.Hooked up to a good budget receiver or amp they will suprise you but do need some tone control help to sound their best. Perfect for the apartment dweller who really can't blast it to 110 db,down to 25HZ,they are a perfect fit.Got mine used and six months old... Read full review »

Pros Treble and mid-range is open and clear Bass is rich and balanced out well
Cons 2 wires from amp to Acoustimass and 2 out to the cubes

This is a great compact system with big open sound for small to medium sized rooms. I have heard better audio systems its the simplicity of hookup and ease of listening to the system what makes the Bose AM3 an enjoyable piece. Read full review »


Excellent for Classical and vocals, mediocre for everything else

Pros Outstanding for Classical, Opera, and vocals
Cons Awful for pop, rock, hip hop, and rap
Recommended it? Yes

After owning the original Bose 901 speakers (from 1970) I was in the market for new speakers. Loving Bose I purchased the Acoustimass 3 Series IV. For classical, opera, and vocals (Dean Martin, Perry Como, etc) these speakers are outstanding! However, they are awful for pop, rock, and hip hop/rap... Read full review »

Pros Small, excellent sound, respected vendor, good looks, easy hookup
Cons Make sure to put bass module in a place to sound right for you.
Recommended it? Yes

Instead of using strange and poor computer speaker solutions, I wanted to use speakers that are meant for real listeners. Speakers that would make my computer work areas enjoyable. Speakers that are made by a company that knows what they are doing. Bose comes to mind. So I bought a little stereo... Read full review »


Tiny Tinny Speakers

Pros Hmmm. Well, I suppose size does matter.
Cons Tinny, thin sound. Price is out of proportion to performance.
Recommended it? No

First I need to say that I am not an audiophile or an expert on speakers. My husband and I simply wanted to replace our huge KLH speakers with something much more compact since we moved to a smaller home. After reading the reviews here and on consumer reports we thought the bose acoustimass 3... Read full review »

Pros These entry level speakers will blow you away!
Cons Slightly lacking in the extreme high frequencies but still a standout performer.
Recommended it? Yes

Not too long ago my good friend Brent came up to me at work and exclaimed..."Hey, Petey!! Guess what I did!!" At 7 AM in the morning and barely completing my first sip of freshly brewed Dunkin' Donuts coffee it definitely widened my eyes and pumped the heart a tad faster than a split second before...

Pros Excellent bass reproduction even at the quiets volumes, clear treble. And obviously there...
Cons Spring clips are a problem for some.
Recommended it? Yes

Ive hooked these up with a NAD 320 (40W) and believe me i think 40W is plenty. Ive got the amp connected to my PC and i can only manage a quarter of a turn on the volume control,before it gets too loud. I cant see how anyone can say anything bad about Bose after all its a very competitive market,... Read full review »

Pros Small, attractive, clear sound, solid construction/manufacturing, still working in 2004!...
Cons Mounting brackets sold separately
Recommended it? Yes

Let me open by saying that I am not a techno-geek. I do not write in scientific or technical terms. I write for the lay person like myself.

I bought my Bose Acoustimass 3 system in about 1994 from HH Gregg. Since I love listening to all kinds of music, a good sound was important. I also... Read full review »
