Prolific sound. Slim profile.

Direct/Reflecting® Series II cube speakers sport a sleek design that catches the eye. Inside each cabinet, precisely angled drivers fill your room with spacious performance and no "sweet spots." The speakers can also mount flush to the wall with optional brackets, eliminating nearly 5 cm of extension compared to the previous model.

Give your music a little thump

A solid bass line or a punchy drum beat helps a song come alive. Our Acoustimass® module reproduces that kind of low-note performance with deep, clear precision at any volume—and without audible distortion. Place the module out of view, and all your sound will seem to pour from the tiny cube speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers...Highly recommended I bought these speakers for an LG shelf unit CM3370 that I just purchased and wanted better quality sound from the speakers that came with the unit especially the bass. I have Companion 2 and 3 computer speakers which sound amazing, especially the Companion 3 series II which comes with an acoustimass module. I wanted the same quality of sound on my LG shelf unit. I purchased the Acoustimass 5 Series V and the sound is amazing. They blow the speakers that came with my self unit out of the water. I also took a chance and bought a factory refurbished unit which came in sealed original packaging and looked brand new and never used. I got this for $100 less than a new unit, it may as well have been a brand new unit. For those that complained about the lack of bass; Please look into where the bass module is placed. It will sound best in the corner of the room against a wall with the opening of the module facing outward. The unit comes with long speaker and connection cables. At the same time, make sure the speaker wires are connected with the right polarity to your receiver or amp. I know most receivers have red and black terminals for each channel, but my unit had one channel red and black and the other black and white. The speaker wires come with black and red ends. In my case, the red wire of the speaker pair must go on black terminal and the black on the white. If not connected this way the speakers work but there is no bass. Overall, great speakers and these sound great including the bass!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I purchased by am5 series II in 1993 while I was in the Army. I still own them and use them in my home theater set up. I have killed three AV receivers but my am5 keep ticking. The sound is just awesome, crisp clean highs and mids plus disturbing the neighbors lows. I too was hit my hurricane Harvey but because it was a hurricane and you have days of warning to prepare...the day before it made landfall I secured all my valuable possessions in a high elevation with waterproof containment such as pictures, computers, my Bose am5 and evacuated. My house suffered water and wind damage. All the items I secured were fine including the am5. Waterlogged bass modules for days or weeks are not poor craftsmanship on Bose, whole houses are being torn down due to water standing for days and this due to poor craftsmanship? I own a multitude of Bose products and they all are of superior build quality, craftsmanship and sound. You get what you pay for in products and service.

No, it is recommended that the module be placed in an upright position. Placing it on its side may limit its ability to play at full output for extended periods of time.

What is the difference between the Acoustimass® 5 system and the Acoustimass® 3 system?

The Acoustimass® 5 system includes Direct/Reflecting® Series II cube speakers and a larger, more powerful Acoustimass® module for more spacious sound. While both systems perform well in any room, the Acoustimass® 5 system is the better choice for larger spaces. Acoustimass® 5 system »
