Product Research


5 Speaker & Powered Sub System: The Bose Acoustimass 10 (V) system features 4 direct/reflecting dual-cube speaker arrays, a horizontal center-channel speaker, and a powered acoustimass module. This combination produces a powerful and realistic home theater experience. System and speakers cables are also included.

4 Direct/Reflecting Dual-Cube Speakers: Direct/Reflecting speaker technology helps the 4 compact dual-cube speaker arrays to deliver more open, spacious sound throughout the listening area. You hear enhanced surround sound and exceptionally lifelike stereo with a larger soundstage. Each of the four dual-cube speaker arrays features dual 2.5" wide-range Twiddlers.

Horizontal Center-Channel Speaker: Designed to visually complement flat-panel TV screens while delivering natural-sounding dialog & vocals. The horizontal center-channel speaker uses the same dual 2.5" wide-range Twiddlers as the cube arrays.

Powered Acoustimass Module: The Acoustimass module uses a proprietary enclosure and patented technologies to produce deep, rich bass with clarity and balance. The powered Acoustimass module uses two 5.25" high-excursion paper cone woofers, each with a foam surround, powered by a built-in amplifier.

  • Integrated Signal Processing: The Bose patented integrated signal processing compensates for the human ear's reduced sensitivity to bass at low volumes. You hear the proper balance of deep bass, even at very low, late-night listening levels and dialogue continues to sound natural.
  • LFE & Bass Level Control: The LFE control increases or decreases the relative level of low-frequency effects on movie soundtracks. The Bass control increases or decreases the bass level of the Acoustimass module.
  • Automatic System Protection Circuitry: When played at high volume, this system's automatic protection circuitry activates to prevent damage to the system from electrical stress or overload. When this happens you may notice a slight decrease in volume, which is normal.

Audio Connections & Speaker Cables: The Bose AM10 (V) system features dedicated connectors on the back of the Acoustimass module and speakers. A system cable and speaker wire are included.

  • Audio Input: The Acoustimass module is fitted with a 15-pin male jack for use with supplied 20' system input cable; the other end of the system input cable has tinned wire that connects to the left front, right front, center, left rear and right rear speaker outputs & a mono male RCA plug that connects to the subwoofer output of the A/V receiver or amplifier.
  • Audio Output: The Acoustimass module also features 5 RCA jacks (Left Front, Right Front, Center, Left Rear, & Right Rear) that connect directly to the cube speaker arrays proprietary terminals, using the supplied 20' and 50' speaker cables.
  • Power Cord: The powered Acoustimass module features a detachable 7.75' AC power cord.

Mounting Options & Placement: The Bose AM10 (V) system offers flexible placement for the speakers and Acoustimass module.

  • Speaker Mounting: These speakers can be simply table-top mounted, or you can mount the speakers on wall-brackets, floor-stands, or table-stands (all sold separately).
  • Acoustimass Module Placement: For best sound quality, the Acoustimass module should be placed on the floor against the same wall as the television and center speaker, with an electrical outlet nearby for the power cord.

Recommended Power: The Bose AM10 (V) speaker system is compatible with AV receivers and amplifiers rated from 10 to 200 watts per channel, rated from 4 to 8 ohms.

Customer Q&A

15 questions already asked

Does this system come with a receiver? If not what receivers are compatible? I presently have a Samsung.
[ Thomas  Sep 24, 2020 ]
3 answers
No, there is no receiver included. Any 5.1 capable receiver will do. You do not need a sub woofer output, that is handled by the bass module. All the speaker wire is included and color coded just follow the enclosed instructions. The bass module does require an electrical outlet.
[ Clayton  Sep 24, 2020 ]
Any 5.1 or above receiver will work, I have a Sony 7.1 that works great with the Acoustimass 10!
[ Dondi  Sep 24, 2020 ]
The system is a speaker system--a receiver is not included. Most likely your present receiver will drive the speaker system. I have a lower priced Onkyo in my rental home and it works just fine.
[ Terry  Sep 24, 2020 ]
Can I utilize my own subwoofer with this system?
[ Jwhitacr  Aug 23, 2020 ]
2 answers
All satellite speakers are wired directly from the receiver into the Bose base. The base controls what is output to the satellite speakers. Therefore, a separate base cannot be used with this system.
[ Terry  Aug 23, 2020 ]
No, the Bose subwoofer is the brain of the system.
[ Samuel  Aug 23, 2020 ]
Whats are the speakers sensitivity?
[ New User  Jun 14, 2020 ]

Unfortunately there is no reference anywhere in the owner's guide to "sensitivity".
[ Clayton  Jun 14, 2020 ]
How difficult will it be to use Bose accoustimass 10 with an onkyo Rx- nr686 to play movies from a fire stick?
[ Roma  May 07, 2019 ]
1 answer
It doesn't have to be difficult at all! We have technical support to help our customers install and setup the gear they get from us and the Fire stock can plug straight into one of the HDMI inputs on the receiver My Bio:

are the speakers wireless?
[ John  Apr 09, 2019 ]

The Bose system does use wires for all the speakers. If you are looking for a wireless surround sound system you might consider Sonos If you have questions about that option or want to look at alternatives you can also connect with one of our friendly product advisors here:
[ Cosmo  Apr 18, 2019 ]  Staff
Hello John, the speakers are not wireless, they are wired to the base module and the base module is wired to the receiver of your choice.

How do I control volumn ?
[ Michael  Mar 24, 2019 ]
1 answer
On the subwoofer there are bass & treble adjustments . You need to have a good Audio/ Video receiver to hook-up the Bose system to get the best sound of it.
[ Faustino  Mar 29, 2019 ]

[ evan  Mar 26, 2018 ]

The Acoustimass 10 series V speaker system is made specifically for use with 3rd party home theater receivers. The system comes with the "system input cable" you'll need to connect to the standard speaker and subwoofer outputs of most any home theater receiver.

I am putting a Dolby 7.2 system together. Can I purchase an additional 2 sorround speakers separately? If so, any pointers or part numbers you have will be of help. Thanks.
[ Roger  Sep 11, 2017 ]
2 answers
I mean 7.2
[ Jason  Sep 11, 2017 ]
I guess you could get a acousrimass 5 system for the additional Channels and run the receiver wires direct to the.... no... just don't.... if you want a 7.1 system look elsewhere.
[ Jason  Sep 11, 2017 ]
Can we use in india on 220 v?
[ Rajesh  Jun 05, 2017 ]
2 answers
I am not sure how that would work. Possibly a adapter? Maybe they make one compatible out of the box?
[ Jason  Jun 06, 2017 ]
So sorry...I do not know the answer. Best guess: Yes if you use a travel converter!! Normal US IS 110, so converter would be essential. PS. DEFINITLEY worth the hassle. LOVE this system!!!!
[ Avis  Jun 06, 2017 ]
I have a pre-wired house for surround sound. Can i run these speakers on traditional speaker wire?
[ philip  Feb 14, 2017 ]
2 answers

[ Jason  Feb 15, 2017 ]
No sir you can't, the speakers is not design to use traditional speaker wire. Contact Bose they might be able to help
[ Yaw  Feb 15, 2017 ]
Hi I have a acoustimass 10 series 4 subwoofer what amplifier u recommend. Do I really need an amplifier to start my home theatre?
[ Ignatius  Dec 07, 2016 ]
4 answers
Honestly, any receiver that has at least 50 W per channel should suffice. It doesn't take a lot of power to properly drive these speakers.
[ Leslie  Jan 31, 2017 ]
You don't need an amplifier for the subwoofer, it included. what you need is 5.1 preamp output.
[ godfrey  Dec 09, 2016 ]
I did not purchase an amplifier for my home theatre....we have this set up in our living room, so we really don't need that extra power. We can actually hear the sub when we are in other parts of the house!
[ Avis  Dec 07, 2016 ]
the sub has an amp in it already, if your asking if you need a receiver then yes
[ Quinn  Dec 07, 2016 ]
Can I use this speaker system with the Sony STR-DN1060 Receiver?
[ Carlos  Jan 13, 2016 ]
3 answers
I had a Bose Acoustimass system and I now have the Sony STR-DN1060 receiver. I replaced my speaker system with more conventional speakers, but can tell you they will work with this receiver.
[ David  Jan 22, 2016 ]
Sure you can as long as the speakers have the positive and negative. This receiver has many functions but if you only need audio on stereo and no use the dolby and all of that things, you can get a cheapper amp and do a biamp connection. The subwoofer need to be amplified this receiver will not amplify you woofer, its only the signal. If you have the money, go fo it, im only using Bluetooth :D good luck.
[ Felipe  Jan 15, 2016 ]
[ Terry  Jan 15, 2016 ]
My speaker wire runs are definitely longer than what's being provided with the Bose Acoustimass 10's - can I purchase longer cords?
[ Martin  Dec 03, 2015 ]
3 answers
The Acoustimass has a proprietary (Bose supplied) interconnect cable from your receiver to the subwoofer module. All of the wiring going to your speakers will start at the sub-module location the to their respective front/rear/center speaker locations. So when determining wiring distances, measure from your sub to your speakers.
[ R  Sep 24, 2020 ]
Hi Martin. I've spliced them before to extend the length.
[ BOB  Dec 04, 2015 ]
I experienced the same problem with my front speaker wires. The end that goes into the sub from the speaker is an normal RCA plug. You can buy RCA extensions at most of your regular shopping locations. Just be sure you get one with a female input on one end and male plug on the other...NOT 2 male plug ends. Not sure if Bose sells longer wires or not, but this fix worked fine for me.
[ Mark  Dec 04, 2015 ]
