Our take on the Boston Acoustics TVee Model 10 by Crutchfield's David Brown
Ready to hear your TV again?
Flat-panel TVs continue to deliver bigger, clearer pictures while getting slimmer and slimmer. But as picture quality improves, sound quality has been neglected. Fortunately, there's an easy way to upgrade your TV's sound without investing in separate receivers, speakers and subwoofers. The Boston Acoustics TVee Model 10 is a one-box solution to get sound as full and clear as your HDTV's picture. Just plug this slim sound bar into an outlet, connect it to your TV with the included optical digital or analog miniplug cable, and you've got instant home theater sound that will make movies and shows come alive with clear dialogue and dynamic sound effects.
Don't have room for a subwoofer? Don't worry. The TVee 10 can deliver plenty of rich bass without it thanks to Boston's BassTrac circuitry. So this dual-speaker bar is clean, compact and disappears in your room, either resting on your TV stand or mounted on the wall. Sit back and actually hear what you're seeing on TV without having to constantly ride your TV's volume. You can even control the TVee 10 with your regular TV or cable remote, making this sound bar incredibly easy to set up and use.
I've been very happy with this soundbar. I have it connected to my outdoor TV, which is mounted on my covered back deck. It sat outside all winter long, exposed to the cold temperatures of winter, snow and rain. It is not rated for outdoor use, but it was worked perfectly for me on my outdoor TV.

Overview: The TVee 10 soundbar from Boston Acoustics dramatically improves the audio of your TV without a separate subwoofer. Designed to sit above or below your TV, the soundbar features the Boston's Digitally Optimized Virtual Surround (DOVS) technology for rich, immersive sound and BassTrac circuitry for clean bass at all listening levels. This simple, one-piece soundbar system brings powerful, quality, and dynamic audio to TV, movies, games, and music. The TVee 10 is self-amplified and connects directly to your TV with one simple wire. The TVee 10 can even be operated with your TV's remote control.
50W (Peak) Amplifier: The Boston Acoustics TVee 10 soundbar is self-amplified and equipped with a built-in 50-watt (peak) amplifier.
Dual HHRT Drivers: The TVee 10 soundbar uses Boston's low-distortion, wide-bandwidth HHRT (Hyperbolic High Rigidity Transducer) driver technology. The Boston Acoustics TVee 10 soundbar is equipped with dual 2" x 5" HHRT (Hyperbolic High-Rigidity Transducer) drivers inside a bass-reflex enclosure made of ABS plastic.
Digital Optimized Virtual Surround Sound (DOVS): Digitally Optimized Virtual Surround (DOVS) technology from Boston Acoustics uses sophisticated digital processing to create a fully immersive, cinema-quality sound experience; whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game. The soundbar's exclusive Boston DSP control switch maximizes performance for both movies and music.
- Movie Mode: In the Movie Mode, Boston's Digitally Optimized Virtual Surround delivers clear movie dialogue and music along with cinematic surround audio effects.
- Music Mode: The Music Mode provides enhanced digital stereo music reproduction.
BassTrac Circuitry: Boston's BassTrac circuitry delivers rich bass without distortion and without having to use a separate subwoofer.
One Wire TV Connection: The TVee 10 soundbar speaker connects to your television with either a single stereo minijack cable or optical digital cable (also requires AC power). You can get this signal from your TV's audio output, or from your satellite/cable box.
- Analog Stereo: The soundbar speaker features two rear-panel analog stereo minijack (3.5mm) inputs to connect your TV or sat/cable box, and even a portable audio player.
- Digital Optical: The soundbar speaker also features a rear-panel optical digital input for Dolby Digital or PCM decoding from your connected TV or sat/cable box.
Note: The soundbar's trim-level switch changes the input sensitivity (1-3) of the TVee 10 to match the output level of your TV or satellite/cable box.
Simple Controls: The soundbar speaker is equipped with touch-sensitive controls and comes with an IR remote control. You can also program your television's or satellite/cable box's remote control to operate the soundbar's volume.
Mounting Options: The soundbar can be placed above or below your flat-panel TV. It should be centered with your television. There are two large keyhole slots (22.625" apart) to facilitate mounting it on a wall (mounting template supplied).
Power Requirements: The soundbar speaker operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter.
- Input: 100-240V~ 50/60Hz, 1.0A (max)

3 questions already asked
Maybe. I use it in my camper so it's close quarters and that hasn't bothered me.....I am thrilled with the sound quality. [ JIM May 08, 2014 ]
If there is, I haven't found it . I have noticed that when watching a show I have to turn up the volume to hear what the actors are saying and then I get blasted when the action music begins. As you said, it's better than the TV speakers, but still not correct. [ KEN May 06, 2014 ]
Bruce, I sent the sound bar back! I didn't like the sound output. I recently had some AV work done at my house. I went with an Onkyo LS-B50 sound bar and sub woofer. This was purchased by my installer. Hope this helps. Chris [ CHRIS May 03, 2014 ]
Tony, yes, I just installed TVee 10 on my 46" Samsung TV and it is compatible with Dish remote. Bruce [ Bruce May 04, 2014 ]
I do not have DishTV [ JOHN Dec 10, 2013 ]
Liked the Boston Tvee10, but I found the Jbl200, the highs are much clearer,and the bass from Jbl200 has incredible bass response, it has better bass response than most units with separate powered subwoofer which are large and bulky. The JBL has two amplified subwoofers built into the wall sound bar that rocks even the biggest of rooms with a simple one optic wire connection to your TV set, and you are set for years of fun that sound so much better than most home theater systems that cost hundreds more & arebulky and take up lots of space for subwoofer and rear speakers. JBL S200 mounts on wall below tv with two simple screws and rubber bumper pads so it mounts easily with the 2 screws and the bumper pads simply peel off the backing on the pads,then stick them to rear of sound bar , slide it on the 2 screws and you are done, [ STEPHEN Dec 09, 2013 ]
I don't have Dish TV but my cable remote was very easy to program so it controls the volume . In other words one remote does it all - box, tv, sound bar. [ KEN Dec 09, 2013 ]
Tony, I use it in my camper so haven't tried Dish. I bought it because if fit in the available space and was pleasantly surprised at how good it sounds. [ JIM Dec 09, 2013 ]
I have this hooked up to a tv that is on TWC cable. Once I set it up on the tv I no longer use the BA remote. It all works through the cable remote. [ WILLIAM Dec 08, 2013 ]
This soundbar does not have the ability to connect to a wireless subwoofer. [ Jeff Dec 09, 2013 ] Staff
