The name speaks for itself, but we don’t want to make it a battle of the brands. If you’re looking for a good set of speakers for your surround sound system, then the Bose Acoustimass 5 Speaker System is one of the best models you can get. This review will cover everything you need to know about this model.

General Description

This system is a simple set of three items – two speakers and a subwoofer. Bose has its own trademark name for its subwoofers, and that is the Acoustimass. What’s unique about this Bose speaker system is that it has trademark technology incorporated all over. There’s practically no other manufacturer that develops these kinds of speakers and sells them to the world. The subwoofer is Acoustimass which is a trademark of the brand, and the two small speakers are also trademark products from bose trade in program, the Direct/Reflecting cube speakers which are actually a set of two small speakers placed on top of each other, and both can be rotatable to 360 degrees. These swivel speakers allow you to direct the sound that they emit onto different locations such as the wall, a bedroom door, the kitchen, or any other room or area in the house. The technology of these speakers allows them to produce sound that can bounce on walls and enter other rooms without having to move the objects themselves. You just have to direct them to the area where you want the sound to reach and you can experience the best music-listening experience from this speaker system.

As for the appearance, this set boasts of its compactness but excellent sound quality. Many other speaker systems use their size to produce better sound, but Bose wants to prove otherwise, and developed this set of amazingly cite cubes which can create the best surround sound system that you can find. It might be too good to be true, but a lot of people have witnessed the excellent music production of this set of speakers. Another good thing about the appearance of this product is its colors, which you can choose from when you purchase the set. There’s a black set and a white set, and although the white set of speakers can be more attractive and eye-catching, the black set can blend easily with your home décor and household equipment. It also shows less abuse and weathering, so it’s much more preferable to use the black set.

The dimensions of the speakers are 6.25″ x 3″ x 4″ each, and they weigh 2.4 pounds each as well. They are very easy to handle, very easy to assemble, and you won’t have any problems having to fix them again and again in different locations in your house because they’re absolutely portable and compact. The Acoustimass subwoofer has the dimensions of 14″ x 19″ x 7.5″ and a weight of 18.8 pounds. You can just keep this on a shelf or on an isolated area, like beside the door or at the corner of the room. Anyway, no matter where you place it, it will still be able to produce that beautiful, booming bass.


As a speaker system, this set has a lot of trademark Bose features that can really put the roof on fire. The Acoustimass module is designed to produce remarkable low frequencies and tones, and make the bass stand out without producing static or rumbling noises. There is absolutely no audible distortion that can be heard from the bass. There are some people who complain about the subwoofer having no sound or little sound, and there are also others who blame the power and say that it isn’t enough to completely fuel the device. But this can be corrected by setting up the system properly and adjusting the settings of the audio correctly. Perhaps the problem is not on the subwoofer but on the source of the audio, like the TV or the DVD player. You just have to make sure it’s on properly, and the system will definitely produce good sound.

The Direct/Reflecting speaker technology is also brilliant. It allows you to make the sound resonate by directing the speaker on walls and letting the sound waves bounce all over the house. This provides the most theatrical sound experience, and you really feel like you’re in a movie theater.

Other Features

The speakers have magnetic shields on their surfaces which serve as signal absorbers, so even if you place your speakers beside your TV set, they won’t make the images on the TV turn static. The automatic protection circuitry feature prevents the speaker drivers from being overdriven by other sources of sound or interruptions and provides increased reliability while minimizing interference.


This model definitely sets the standard of a Bose speaker system. Not only is its name great and reputable, the performance of the system is also incredible. It’s certain that Bose can deliver the quality of sound you’ve long been looking for that simply can’t be found from other brands of audio systems. I highly recommend the Bose Acoustimass 5 Speaker System for all the individuals out there who are looking for an awesome speaker set that will fit best with their home theater systems.
