Your favorite TV shows are filled with “can’t miss” moments. But you are missing some of them if you’re relying on your HDTV for sound. Whispered dialogue, subtle sound effects, mood music. The Bose Solo 15 TV sound system solves this problem, easily and unobtrusively. It sits directly under your TV and delivers better sound with a single connection. It features acoustic improvements over the original Bose Solo TV sound system, and is compatible with larger TVs for a more enjoyable experience.

The specifics behind the sound
So what’s inside this elegant, pedestal-style speaker? Plenty. Speaker arrays positioned at each end of the cabinet work with proprietary TrueSpace® technology for full, spacious sound. A dedicated center speaker—and digital signal processing—enables clear dialogue at any volume. It all adds up to deliver more detail and better sound from your favorite TV shows than you’ve heard before. And it’s much more than you could ever dream of from your HDTV alone.
Setup couldn't be easier.
You want your TV shows to shine. But you don’t want a ton of equipment to make it happen. That’s the beauty of this system—one speaker, one connection to the TV. Plug the speaker into the wall, and enjoy the show. It’s that easy.
Low notes how you like them
Dramatic programs. Live concerts. Suspenseful series. There are times you just know you’ll want a little more bass when watching TV. Go ahead—you can adjust the bass control to your liking with the control knob on the back of the speaker.
Universal remote included
Thinking about your Blu-ray player or gaming system? We’ve got you covered there, too. We’ve included a universal remote to easily control both the system and most video sources connected to your TV.

Why is the sound produced by the Bose Solo 15 TV sound system better than my TV speakers ?

Digital signal processing delivers clear and natural dialogue, sound effects and music at any volume level, while a new five-element speaker array inside the enclosure produces sound that’s wider than the screen.
How is the Bose Solo 15 TV sound system different from the original Bose Solo system?
The Bose Solo 15 system shares many features and benefits with the original Bose Solo system, but now has several new features.

It also features a bass level knob so you can adjust low-note performance to your liking.
