Good rear speakers, with a weak center channel

bygg25 Feb 12, 2007
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Rear speakers are fantastic. Great bass, wide sound and loud.
Cons Center speaker is weak and lacks range, and this kit is expensive.
Recommended it? No

For an indepth review of the Bose 161s (rear speakers) please look at my other reviews.

These speakers produce a rather good sound for rear speaker or a main background speaker.

However, as mentioned in my VCS-10 review, which is the center speaker included in this package - I... Read full review »


Not my cup of tea

Pros respectable sound.
Cons not Hi fidelity by a long shot.
Recommended it? No

I own an acoustimass 15 and bought this set to improve upon the sound. It simply didn't do a great deal of improvement. I even called Bose Tech support to be sure I connected everything properly. Don't get me wrong, the system sounded good, but, I wanted it to sound GREAT. I ended up giving all my... Read full review »


Excellent companion to AM5

Pros Enhances AM5 series
Cons Rear speaker size
Recommended it? Yes

This product is an excellent choice if you already have a satisfying stereo system. It is exactly as described by Bose on their web page. When properly balanced it provides excellent vocal reproduction and accurate musical fill. It specifically does not generate exaggerated bass and overly sharp... Read full review »

Pros Slim, Excellent sounds and no Distortion....
Cons Price is a little bit too much but then again your buying an excellent one.
Recommended it? Yes

I am a Bose fan and I got this VCS 30 to add along with my 501 Bose speakers so I can get good surround speakers along with a great center channel speaker and to tell you the truth I'm very much pleased with this equipment, it adds more life like sounds when you watch your DVD and VHS movies, it's...

Pros slim
Cons the power, built and sound is not quite pleasing.
Recommended it? No

Don't get me wrong I have nothing against BOSE, in fact I own BOSE products, its just I can't recommend this V C S 30 speaker system. I have an existing BOSE AM5 series 3 and upgraded it with V C S 30. The AM5 is good but the V C S 30 is not so good, especially on ambiance sound, which a surround... Read full review »


Quite Possibly The Worst Product Ever Built

17 Helpfuls 18 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros LOL!
Cons Ahhh!!!! The VCS 10!!!, It's Bose!
Recommended it? No

I think that I have made it clear that Bose is by far the worst brand ever. As you know, I have already tested out the Bose VCS 10 center. Well, the Bose VCS 30 consists of the VCS 10 and two Model 100 speakers. I think this is supposed to be an "inexpensive" front stage. Well, it's one of the all... Read full review »


Bose VCS 30

Pros Surprised by the great sound! I thought it would be a step down. Surprise!
Cons The 100's are a bit ugly and bulky, and lots of plastic!
Recommended it? Yes

When I originally purchased the system, I had "thrify" written all over my wallet! You see, I didn't want to spend to much on my center/rear speakers, but I did want quality sound. (Sounds like a serious problem doesn't it?)

So I seached the web, read the literature, went to the stores to... Read full review »


Very Nice Sound

Pros Great Full and Rich Sound
Cons Mounting requires to many holes in wall
Recommended it? Yes

I have never been seriously interested in any BOSE products
until I started reading all the negative comments about them.
That alone sparked an interest, and I wanted to find out
why some consumers had such strong negative views on these products.
So I compared and I listened to the... Read full review »
