Review of the Bose® Companion® 2 Series III multimedia speakers.
There are two essential things you need to know about the Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker. First, it's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. And second, it sounds way, way fuller than it looks.
We sample the Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth® wireless portable speaker in the labs and at home and like what we hear.

For generations now, the watermen of the Chesapeake Bay have harvested oysters and crabs from the decks of traditional workboats. Known as "deadrises" because of the hull shape, they're made for hard work. But as many enthusiasts know, a good deadrise can be a great pleasure boat. The Mary Rebecca is an authentic, yet thoroughly modern, take on this classic design. All she needed was a thoroughly modern stereo.
When you're driving a Mazda MX-5 Miata on a curvy, country road, music probably isn't all that important. But, let's face it, into each life a little rain must fall and the only thing to do when that happens is put the top up and enjoy some music. You're driving a great little car, so why not enjoy some great stereo sound?
The 2003-05 Nissan 350Z offers all the speed and handling qualities you'd expect from a Z-car, plus a refined, comfortable cockpit and plenty of features. It's still a great car to drive, but the stereo probably doesn't sound as sporty as it used to. Upgrading the audio system is a great way to improve your Z-car's performance.
Judging by the number of trucks you still see on the road, the 1999-2002 GMC Sierra 1500 is one tough pickup. This truck may get the job done, but the factory stereo comes up a little short. Thankfully, upgrading the Sierra's stereo is pretty straightforward, and there are plenty of ways to improve the audio.
In some ways, the first-generation Infiniti G35 was arguably a better "European" sports sedan than some of its European competitors. Good looks and good handling make the G35 a smart purchase for anyone who values the practicality of a sedan and the performance of a sports car.
Thanks to sharp styling and an efficient engine, the 2005-06 Nissan Altima remains a popular choice for commuters and car lovers alike. The factory stereos weren't bad for their time, but technology moves fast. Aftermarket stereo gear will give you better sound, plus iPod control, streaming music, and more.
The 2007-11 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, like many modern trucks, offers an amazing combination of luxury and utility. If you still like your truck, but want more out of your stereo system, there are plenty of upgrades available.
