2.1Ch System: The Bose Acoustimass 5 (V) system features two
direct/reflecting dual-cube speaker arrays and a passive Acoustimass module.
This combination produces a powerful, stereo experience. Speakers cables are
2 Direct/Reflecting Dual-Cube Speakers: Direct/Reflecting
speaker technology helps the two compact dual-cube speaker arrays to deliver
more open, spacious sound throughout the listening area. You hear enhanced sound
and exceptionally lifelike stereo with a larger soundstage. Each of the two
dual-cube speaker arrays features dual 2.5" wide-range "Twiddler" drivers.
Acoustimass Module: The Acoustimass module uses a
proprietary enclosure and patented technologies to produce deep, rich bass with
clarity and balance that compliment the two dual-cube speakers perfectly. The
Acoustimass module has a front-firing bass port for greater efficiency and
bigger bass response.
Wiring: The included speaker cables are run from the left
and right speaker output of your receiver to the Acoustimass module which has
two spring clip speaker inputs. Wires are then run from the two spring clip
speaker outputs on the Acoustimass module to the left and right dual-cube
speaker's proprietary inputs. Since the crossover networks needed to protect the
cubes are in the Acoustimass module and not in the individual dualcubes,
the units must be connected this way.
Mounting Options & Placement: The Bose AM5 (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 along the same wall and equal
distance to the two dual-cube speakers.
Recommended Power: The Bose AM5 (V) speaker system is
compatible with AV receivers and amplifiers rated from 10 to 100 watts per
channel, rated from 4 to 8 ohms.
Auto System Protection: When played at high volume, the Bose
Acoustimass 5 (V)'s automatic protection circuit activates to prevent damage to
the system from electrical stress or overload. When this happens, you may notice
a slight decrease in volume. This indicates that the power input may have
exceeded safe levels.
