About the Bose® Acoustimass® 16

For home theater sound that pulls you into the movie action, check out the popular Bose® Acoustimass® 16 speaker system. It uses six of Bose's famously tiny, swiveling, dual-cube speakers to create rich, room-filling audio. Bose's patented Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology helps this system deliver wraparound effects, sending a mixture of direct and reflected sound to your ears. Plus, those small cubes don't clutter up your living room the way some full-sized speakers might.

Bose's patented Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology helps this system deliver wraparound effects, sending a mixture of direct and reflected sound to your ears. Plus, those small cubes don't clutter up your living room the way some full-sized speakers might.

The powered Acoustimass® bass module (the same one found in the AM15 Series II system) provides deep, rich, room-filling lows — thanks to the three 5-1/4" woofers, Bose is able to describe it as having "the deepest bass" of any Acoustimass bass module yet. Sound good? You betcha. And it's compact enough for unobtrusive placement in almost any room.

With color-coded cables, this system is exceptionally easy to get up and running. Bose build quality and electronic protection circuitry mean this system will be filling your room with sound for years to come. Now, set it up, sit back, and enjoy the transformation of your movies and music!

Features

6.1-Channel Speaker System: The Acoustimass 16 offers 6 cube speakers and the Acoustimass module to accommodate 6.1-channel receivers, providing more realistic, cinema-like sound. The newly-added Center Surround cube speaker array covers a broad soundstage with full, rich, spacious performance.

Virtually Invisible Speaker System Design: The Virtually Invisible speaker system design gives you expansive sound without dominating your décor. The Acoustimass module delivers deep, powerful bass without audible port noise, so it can be hidden almost anywhere in the listening area. The music and sound effects seem to come from the tiny cube speaker arrays.

Next-generation Powered Acoustimass Module: The newly engineered Acoustimass module uses a proprietary acoustic enclosure and patented technologies to produce deeper, richer and louder bass than the previous generation.

Direct/Reflecting Speaker Technology: The Direct/Reflecting speaker technology helps the compact cube speaker arrays deliver more open, spacious sound throughout the listening area. You hear enhanced surround sound and exceptionally lifelike stereo with a larger soundstage.

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.

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.

Drivers: The powered Acoustimass module uses three 5-1/4" high-excursion paper cone woofers, each with a foam surround. Each cube speaker array features dual 2-1/2" wide-range Twiddlers. The top and bottom sections of the cube speaker arrays can be rotated to create room-filling sound patterns.

Cube Speaker Mounting: Each cube speaker array has a rear-mounted 5mm female threaded insert. The threaded inserts allow you to mount the cube speaker arrays using optional stands or wall-mount brackets.

  • LFE: the LFE level control increases or decreases the relative level of low-frequency effects on movie soundtracks
