Overview

Our take on the Bose® Virtually Invisible® 300 wireless surround speakers

The Bose® SoundTouch® 300 soundbar does a great job of simulating surround sound — but nothing beats the real deal. If you want truly enveloping sound, add the Bose® Virtually Invisible® wireless surround speakers. Plug in the included wireless receiver modules to an AC outlet behind your viewing area, and connect the left and right surround speakers. The system communicates wirelessly with the SoundTouch® 300, so you won't have to run wire from the front to the back of your TV room.

Small but packs a punch

Angela from Alexandria, VA on 10/1/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This small speakers deliver great sound! I used them as rear speakers and they are paired to my Bose SoundTouch Sound Bar and Acoustimass wireless bass module (subwoofer). Bose's ADAPTiQ calibration works flawlessly and takes maybe 5 minutes to do. Sound is clear and crisp. I am so glad I purchased these speakers to go with my Bose system. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with pairing these speakers to your system. It's a must buy!

Pros: Sound, design, ease of setup/use

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These tiny speakers will add an extra layer of audio and flavor to your Bose system. I use them as rear speakers but you may use in the front as well. I wish you could add an extra pair.

Pros: clear and crisp sound

Cons: You are limited to only one pair

Features

Virtually Invisible Wireless Surround Speakers: Designed exclusively to wirelessly pair with the Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbar (018ST300; sold separately), the Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers provide theater-like sound to your movies, sports, and TV shows. The Bose Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers are intended for use in the same room as the SoundTouch 300 soundbar and have a range of approximately 30'.

Note: Thanks to the included wireless receivers, you will not need to run speaker wire from the surround speakers back to the soundbar. However, you will still need to run speaker wire from the surround speakers to the wireless receivers and plug the wireless receivers into AC outlets.

Wireless Receivers: Each wireless surround speaker comes with a wireless receiver, a 19.5' speaker cable, and a 5' AC power cord. The two lengths of 19.5' speaker cable screw into the back of the speakers and then plug into the wireless receivers. The wireless receivers will also need to be plugged into AC outlets for power using the included 5' AC power cords.

Note: To wirelessly pair the surround speakers to a SoundTouch 300 soundbar, you will need to place the soundbar into pairing mode using its remote control. Once paired, the speakers emit a tone. You must also set the wireless receivers to indicate which surround speaker is Left or Right.

Mounting & Placement Options: The wireless surround speakers feature a rubber base, so they can be securely placed on speaker stands, shelves, or end-tables. You can also mount the speakers to walls or a ceiling using proprietary mounting brackets from Bose (sold separately). It's best to place the wireless surround speakers behind the main listening area, one on the left side and one on the right, for optimum sound quality. Other placement recommendations include -

  • Place the speakers on their rubber feet on a stable and level surface.
  • Place the speakers at ear height or higher in the back of the room.
  • If placing the speakers in an enclosed bookcase shelf, position them at the front edge of the shelf.
  • For a sound that is directed straight at the listener, aim the speakers in towards the listener.
  • For a sound that reflects off the walls to fill the room, aim the speakers out towards a rear or side wall.
Note: To avoid interference, keep other wireless equipment 1-3' away from the wireless receivers. Place the speakers and wireless receivers outside and away from metal cabinets, other audio/video components and direct heat sources.

ADAPTiQ Audio Calibration: After connecting the Virtually Invisible 3000 wireless surround speakers to the SoundTouch 300 soundbar, run ADAPTiQ audio calibration for the best acoustic performance. ADAPTiQ customizes the sound of the system to the acoustics of your listening area by taking five audio measurements. To run an audio calibration, you need 10 minutes when the room is quiet.

Note: During ADAPTiQ, a microphone on the top of the ADAPTiQ headset (provided with the SoundTouch 300 soundbar) measures the sound characteristics of your room to determine optimal sound quality.

I choose the wireless surround speakers to compliment my existing SoundTouch 300 soundbar and Acoustimass to complete my PC Home Theatre sound system.

10 questions already asked

Primarily, you made a really great choice with your selection of speakers. I own a sound bar 300, and they work fine with me. however, I'm not sure if they would work with yours, but they should as long as you have Bluetooth/wireless connection. Good luck! [ Fernando  Feb 08, 2018 ]
As far as I know, these ONLY work with the Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbar. [ TRAVIS  Feb 11, 2018 ]
Don't really know [ Sergio  Feb 08, 2018 ]
We did not mount them on the wall, they are sitting on a small pedestal. We put the speaker on top of the receiver. I guess if you want to hang them, it will work since the wires are long enough. [ TESS  Jan 03, 2018 ]
In my case, I don't have my speakers mounted. They sit up high on shelves, and the large wireless receiver boxes actually are sitting on the floor. The cord is quite long from the wireless box to the speaker so you have some options, but the code from the wireless receive box to the OUTLET is only about five feet. So THAT part of the cord isn't long enough to sit on my shelves with the speakers. It is difficult to hide the cords. So, basically, you need to put the wireless receive somewhere relatively low in the room so it can reach an outlet (unless you have outlets located higher on your walls), but you can still put the little speakers up high. It's a little frustrating not to be able to hide the cord from the outlet to the receiver and then the additional cord to the speaker ... if you are renovating or building new, I suggest putting some electrical outlets up high where you might want to mount your wireless speakers. These wireless speakers work GREAT by the way ... and even with the challenge of hiding the receive and cords, this is SO much better than running expensive wiring around the perimeter of the room. (Been there, done that). I think you'll love these if you buy them! [ Nancy  Jan 02, 2018 ]
Mine are on a bookcase behind the listeners. The receivers are hidden behind books. [ JOHN  Jan 02, 2018 ]
They will not work with the Solo 5 sound system. The Solo 5 was not designed for surround speakers. These speakers do work with the SoundTouch 300 soundbar: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_018ST300/item.html My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Sep 09, 2017 ]  Staff
They link to the Bose soundbar 300 via wifi, I dont believe they will function with another systems soundbar. [ MICHAEL D  Apr 04, 2017 ]
Randy, you MUST buy the Bose soundbar in order to use the invisible 300 wireless speakers. [ Hector  Apr 04, 2017 ]
These speakers only work wirelessly w the soundtouch 300 soundbar [ Brian  Apr 04, 2017 ]
These speakers can only be paired with Soundtouch 300 soundbar. [ Giovanni  Apr 04, 2017 ]

They work off of the soundbar only [ MICHAEL  Apr 04, 2017 ]
The Bose 30 wireless surround speakers do not offer any audio output for connecting a powered subwoofer. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Nov 25, 2016 ]  Staff
Thanks for your question. It appears they are only available in black. [ Kenny  Nov 14, 2016 ]  Staff
Mine are located in a bookcase not wall mounted. I don't see any screw holes in the back but there is a groove that looks like it may be wall mountable. I hope this helps. They are great lil surround speakers. Love them! [ Kevin  Nov 08, 2016 ]
