Bose 500 Home Speaker Position

Hi, I currently have a Bose 300 Home Speaker and thinking about upgrading to the 500. The 500 would go where the 300 is at the moment - right in the corner of a room with two walls on each side only a couple of inches away. Is this a good position for the 500 or does it not matter about positioning for the best sound.

I would put it in a more open location, not surrounded by walls.

Ok, thanks might just stick with the 300 then.

Re: Bose 500 Home Speaker Position

Can I ask why you want to upgrade to the 500? If it is for more depth of sound I would recommend the 500 over the 300. 

 

The 300 has one speaker in it, where as the 500 has two speakers and some other priority design to increase sound. So there is a difference internally.
