Real Question => Can anybody recommend a Bose?
by TiVolution / October 11, 2005 1:57 AM PDT

You may have already listened to many other speakers prior to deciding to go with Bose, but if you haven't, you might want to take a look at other options. Bose sounds good, but not great. However, they are priced as if they are some of the best speakers out there. I think you can do much better for the same money, especially in the subwoofer. Of course this is just my opinion.

the only reason to recommend bose at a store is when

1.) the salesman has no idea what he's talking about
2.) the salesman is on commission and has no idea what he's talking about
3.) the salesman sees that you only shop for the name, so he pushes bose cause he has no idea what he's talking about.

Bose is almost always giving salespeople cash or prizes for points earned based on quantity sold.

Real answer to the Real question...
by Dan Filice / October 12, 2005 3:43 AM PDT

Bose? My real answer is: Don't. My father-in-law bought a Bose HT system that consists of their five speakers, their so-called subwoofer and their all-in-one Reciver/DVD player. He bought it at one of the Bose outlet stores. He paid a LOT of money for not a lot of return. Then, amazingly, his daughter bought the exact same system. Her husband knows zilch about HT stuff, so she went with the "Dad's Approval" and followed in his footsteps. Again, just my 2-cents, but the speakers aren't great, but the worst thing is the so-called subwoofer and the all-in-one receiver/DVD player. One word: Terrible. Do yourself a favor: Spend less money and buy a speaker brand that is known for HT: Axiom, Energy, Boston, Infinity and many more.

The only reason I considered (and still considering) bose is because you can hang them up beyond the reach of 2 year olds..
