You won't notice the speakers — you'll notice the sound. The Acoustimass® 6 Series III home entertainment speaker system boasts five tiny single-cube satellites and a powered module, all of which virtually vanish into your decor. Team it with a home theater receiver, and this value-packed system pours out rich, room-filling surround sound.

The satellites are video-shielded, so you can place them next to your TV without picture distortion. Color-coded cables make setup exceptionally quick and easy. Best of all, the Acoustimass® 6 system carries a modest price tag that any audio fan can appreciate.

Details:

  • five video-shielded, single-cube satellite speakers; each speaker has one 2-1/2" driver
  • powered Acoustimass module with one 5-1/4" high-excursion woofer
  • automatic protection circuitry prevents damage from electrical stress
  • recommended power 10-150 watts with receivers rated from 4 to 8 ohms
  • cubes: 3-1/8"W x 3-1/8"H x 4-1/8"D; bass module: 8-1/4"W x 16-5/16"H x 22-3/8"D
  • warranty: 5 years drivers, 1 year electronics

Bose Accoustimass 6 is a good value. It fills the room and gives good clean sound and assists my receiver with the channel separation. These speakers are typically BOSE, very well constructed and deliver what they promise.

Big Sound/Small Package!

Rob from Enterprise, AL on 11/25/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After several years of hearing family complaints about my big out of date speakers, I finally bit the bullet. Originally, I purchased the Polk RM6880. I noticed on your website the availability of the Bose system for just alittle more money. Cruthchfield gladly sold these to me and paid for the return shipment of the Polk Speakers. Now I have all of my components funtioning as they were designed. More than anything the Bose speakers look and sound great. Unbelievable sound for the size of speakers. I am very pleased to have these quality speakers to complete my system. Thanks Cruthfield, you did it again!

A Great Compromise

Dan from Costa Mesa, CA on 9/16/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We had been living with a 19" TV for 30 years and it was time for an upgrade. The Bose System was part of that. The big thing was that the speakers were small. My wife didn't want ANY speakers ("The TV sounds just fine.") So they look good to her and sound good to me. Another thing is that the Acoustimass Module (which looks like a subwoofer) has a big cable bundle which connects to the speaker outputs on the receiver and then the 5 speakers connect to the Acoustimass Module. Again, it sounds great but there is a lot of cable running around. Crutchfield has been great! Their prices are good and I have called several times to find a patient, knowledgable person there to get me out of a jam.

Great package for a small space

Brian from Austin, TX on 5/30/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to add speakers and an LCD TV to a 30 ft travel trailer and these fit the bill. Luckily, the trailer was previously wired for surround sound, so cabling was easy. The small size of the speakers made it easy to mount them to the low ceiling without hitting your head. The sound quality is excellent. The sound can really fill the small space and the subwoofer can vibrate the floor at high volumes.

John from Cranston, RI on 4/30/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fantastic sound and a great value. If you are looking for big sound in a small package these are for you. Only negative is that Bose should include the wall mounts as part of the package. Extra $125 for mounts is a bit steep. I also purchased the Yamaha RX-V663 to complete the system. Great service from Crutchfield.

Fantastic Home Entertainment System

Yasu from Detroit, MI on 12/25/2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy and satisfied with the Bose Acoustimass 6 System. The cubes are very small and produce very good sound. The base reponse is good and the sound is very clean. They are unbelievable.<BR><BR>This speakers do play loud, but Bose is known for the clean and realistic sound. If you are looking for speakers that just play loud, this is not the right system for you. <BR><BR>Bose Acoustimass 6 System is good for smaller living room. Bose Acoustimass 10 or 16 is great for a bigger room. I recommend matching this system with Onkyo receivers. Bose stores use Onkyo receivers for demonstration. Onkyo systems produce powerful and clean sounds<BR><BR>It is a bit expensive compared to other brands, but you can't go wrong with the Bose system. You will not regre it.

Features

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 speakers.

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.

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 a single 5-1/4" high-excursion paper cone woofer with a foam surround. Each cube speaker features a 2-1/2" wide-range Twiddler.

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

Controls

Left Side of Acoustimass Module:

  • LFE: the LFE level control increases or decreases the relative level of low-frequency effects on movie soundtracks
  • Bass: allows you to increase or decrease the bass level of the Acoustimass module

  • Audio Output: 5 RCA jacks (Left Front, Right Front, Center Front, Left Rear and Right Rear); using the supplied speaker cables, these jacks connect to the cube speakers
  • Power: jack for use with supplied AC power cord
