The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Hey @anujdeva, welcome to the Bose Community!


It's great to hear you're interested in the Bose Solo Soundbar II and the Bose TV Speaker. I'd love to detail the difference for you. 


The TV speaker has an HDMI ARC connection whereas the Solo soundbar II does not. The TV speaker also has a dedicated center channel tweeter and you are able to connect a bass module to the TV speaker. 


Here's a fast facts comparison table that you may find helpful:
