We bought a new house that the previous owners had a Bose system, but took it with them. So, this was useful for us as we bought a new Bose system through Crutchfield. I'm pleased with the easy installation.
Pros:
Easy to use.

Bose Scores again.

Written By John, Huntsville, AL on Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As with all Bose products the quality is excellent and very easy to use. This made it a lot easier to connect my surround speakers plus I didn't have to create new RCA plugs to connect to the bass module. The connectors are a little tight to get 14 gauge wire into, but just use twist on connectors and it's much faster and cleaner or go with 16 gauge.

Great Product

Written By Scott, Anchorage, AK on Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a much cleaner install then your normal 5.1 wall plate. The only thing I would change is the gauge size accepted by the terminals on the back of the décor wall plate and maybe give an option for a longer cable connecting from the wall to the Bose unit.

As always Crutchfield ships fast. You just can't beat them.

I am not sure yet where I want my subwoofer to go, is it possible to install 2 of these plates in case I decide to move it and my furniture in the future? [ Troy  Mar 17, 2014 ]

  • Yes you can install two locations. Only one in use at a time. Lots more wire but makes a very clean install [ MATTHEW W   Mar 18, 2014 ]
  • Yes, it is possible but a little hard. But if you have the position available for it, and your house is not pre wire already. Example is My house was pre-wire so I didn't have other option than put it at the space available for it. Meaning were all of the cables connect. I know is tricky but it is possible and it is very easy to install. [ ROSANA   Mar 17, 2014 ]
  • This will only work in one location. Unless you install a speaker switch of some kind but I think that would cause more resistance and interference in the line then it would be worth. I say this because all your in wall speaker wires get directly plugged into this outlet. [ Thomas   Mar 17, 2014 ]
