Bose Solo TV System VS Bose Solo 5 TV System

Hi,

Would need to seek help from the community.

Recently brought a Solo 5 TV System but when it arrived it indicate as a Solo TV System and the remote controller is difference as well. It does not come with a universal remote controller.

 

After researching for some time, i cant get a good answer for it.

Thus would like to find out what are the main difference between the 2.

The seller insist there is no differences but i feel that the Solo TV System which look exactly like solo 5 is lacking in term of bass.

 

Hope some kind soul can enlighten me on this.

 

Thanks.

Hi kashiro22, 

 

Welcome to the Bose Community! I'm sorry to hear about your experience. You can visit our soundbar support site, where you should be able to see the differences and get some additional information as well. 

 

To summarise, here are the main differences between the Solo 5 and the Solo TV Sound System:

- The dimensions of the Solo 5 are significantly smaller than the Solo. 

- A universal remote is included with the Solo 5, unlike the Solo. 

- The Solo 5 supports Bluetooth connectivity. This allows you to connect your smartphone or computer to stream music wirelessly to the system.

 

Are you able to get the 17-digit serial number off of the unit? We'd be happy to look it up and see which version of Solo was actually sent to you. Let us know. 

 

Thank you

Hi kashiro22, 

 

Absolutely. Please sent it to the community_admin account asking which version of the system it pulls up. 

 

 

 

Hi krishna, 

 

Yes, the Solo 5 is rated 100-240v, 50-60 Hz - so with the proper line cable, it will work with 220. Please let us know if you have any other questions. 

 

Thank you

Re: RE: Bose Solo TV System VS Bose Solo 5 TV System

Hi. I recently purchased a Bose Solo soundbar thinking I was purchasing the Solo 5. I am hearing impaired and the reviews regarding dialogue enhancement resonated with me. We just set up our soundbar and I really don't hear a difference with the setting.
Reading again through the reviews I realized I did not get a Solo 5. My Solo does not look like the same bar off of the product page. It has a simple remote but is Bluetooth enabled to pair other devices. I tried looking up the serial number but it doesn't pull anything up.

Hi. I'm curious if you kept the Solo or exchanged for the Solo 5 (or anything else for that matter).
Thanks
