Notice

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.

What are these speakers called?

Can anyone help identify these old Bose home cinema speakers. There were originally 5, all the same shape and would be about 10 to 15 years old.

 

Thanks

Those are single cube speakers which have been used with possibly over a dozen different Bose systems over the years. You will have to show the subwoofer and possibly a Bose receiver (if it came with one) to know what system you have.

 

If you're in a new home with only those speakers left. Then read these (same speakers) recent posts (different speakers) asking what they can do to get their system up and running.

 

I hope that this helps you answer your question in some way. Let us know what you find out 🙂

Re: What are these speakers called?

Search for Bose on eBay and you will find a lot of Bose speakers, Acoustimass modules, sound systems, etc.  That might help you see how they are used.

 

In general, you would use 5 Bose cube speakers along with a powered Bose Acoustimass module and a 3rd party amp or Bose console as a 5.1 surround sound system to connect to your TV.

If you want to use this with your Yamaha receiver, the cube speakers will have to connect to an Acoustimass 6 III subwoofer. From there the subwoofer will connect to your receiver. Do you still have that subwoofer or are you referring to another 3rd party sub?

Re: What are these speakers called?

Those Bose cube speakers MUST be connected directly to a Bose Acoustimass bass module.  From the bass module there will be a +/- speaker wire for each cube running from the bass module to your receiver speaker outs.
