Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system

  • Our best computer speaker system for 5.1-encoded games, movies and music delivers immersive sound
  • Two small computer speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass® module
  • Handy control pod includes volume, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input

Our three-piece computer sound system delivers multichannel sound that seems to surround you—without the clutter of five speakers. The Companion 5 multimedia speaker system is designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two elegant desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module. And setup is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.

Five-speaker systems are great for home theater, but not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. Yet without a way to get the most from those 5.1 games and movie soundtracks, you're missing much of the fun.

Our exclusive TrueSpace® surround digital processing circuitry spreads the sound around you, so the enveloping effects seem to come from areas where there aren't even any speakers. The experience is developed especially for computer listening—putting you right in the middle of the music, the game, the special effects.

Easy to set up and use

Hookup requires only a single USB connection from the computer speaker system to your PC or laptop—no special software, hardware or sound card upgrade needed.* A handy, all-in-one control pod keeps volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input within easy reach. The small, elegant desktop computer speakers come mounted on stands for optimum performance and extra desktop space.

Get more from your music. Get more into the game or movie. Whatever your computer entertainment passion, get more engaged with Bose® Companion 5 multimedia speakers.

*For optimum performance, we recommend Windows XP or later. For Macintosh computers, OS X 10.4.6 or later.
