Our take on the Bose® Companion® 2

by Tom Mathew

Not happy with the sound from your computer speakers? Discover the performance you've been missing with the Bose® Companion® 2 powered speakers! These handsome speakers will add flair to your desktop, as well as richness and clarity to all your computer audio sources.

Bose's TrueSpace™ circuitry creates an incredibly broad soundstage from speakers spaced no further apart than the width of your computer monitor. Be prepared for newfound depth and warmth from your MP3s and streaming audio, plus added punch and presence from computer games and DVDs. Two sets of audio inputs let you hook up an additional source, like a portable MP3 or CD player, without having to disconnect the speakers from your computer.

Inputs and Outputs


TrueSpace: The Bose Companion 2 speaker system features TrueSpace stereo signal processing circuitry. This proprietary technology helps maximize audio performance by widening the image of closely placed speakers, making the audio seem to come from a soundstage wider than the two speakers.

Ported Cabinets: Each speaker features a 3/4" diameter port to provide clearer, deeper bass from a small enclosure.

Magnetically Shielded: The Companion 2 speakers are magnetically shielded to allow you to place them in close proximity to your computer monitor without interfering with the picture quality.

Dual Inputs: The speakers have two stereo RCA inputs. These dual analog inputs allow you keep the speakers hooked up to your computer, while you use the second input to hook up another source, such as a portable audio device.

Automatic Tone Adjustment: The Companion 2 speakers automatically adjusts the tonal balance to give you rich audio performance at practically any listening level.

Convenient Controls: The volume control and headphone jack are conveniently located on the front of one speaker, giving you easy access. The dual stereo RCA inputs are located on the back of the same speaker. Note: Although the controls and inputs are on the speaker designated as the "right" speaker, you can switch the speakers if it is more convenient to have the inputs and controls on the left side.

Inputs and Outputs

Rear of Right Speaker:

  • Audio Inputs: Two stereo RCA inputs
  • Power Input: 12 volt AC/1.2 Amps input for supplied AC adapter
  • Left Speaker Output: Stereo 3.5mm mini-jack for feeding audio to left speaker

Rear of Left Speaker: Hardwired 74" speaker wire terminated with 3.5mm mini-plug

Front of Right Speaker:

  • Volume Control: Rotary volume control
  • Headphone Output: Stereo 3.5mm mini-jack headphone output (speakers are muted when headphones are plugged in)
