Hi, I'm installing a new Bose system in my family's house, but the thing is that the construction crew that built the house installed the audio wiring but put in remodeling boxes so the Bose arms don't attach if I use those holes. Does anyone have any suggestions or fixes that I can do myself?

Sounds like this is your opportunity to toss the Bose stuff and get some decent speakers.

Friends don't let friends drive drunk...or Bose for that matter.

Hey, sorry if it seams people are being harsh in regards to the Bose brand. I know most average consumers/people think Bose is a good brand. And it is actually an excellent brand.

Unfortunately it is only a brand, a marketing engine if you will. The speakers have no true reproduction of accurate sound. They rely on gimmicks and tricks to fake base and so forth. If you ever had a 1 on 1 comparison to a quality speaker you would quickly hear what a muddy mess Bose is.

Take them back, you can get much better new speakers for the same money. You can get significantly better used speakers for the same money, think Yugo vs. BMW.

Good luck!

Wouldn't it be easy to just build a bracket that fit in the pre-made holes, then make hole in the bracket to fit your speakers. You can even paint or powder-coat the bracket to the speaker colors so they'll match. Just a suggestion.

Without knowing what model of Bose speaker you own, it is hard to understand:
1. Your problem
2. A fix
3. A suggestion for a better speaker. I use to own a Awia system that had better sounding drivers that the Bose Cinemate systemor cube speakers...

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub

I don't know if I can help or not. First, what's a "remodeling box"? And what exactly do you mean by "Bose arms"? We definitely need a model number or at least knowledge of what type of speaker it is you are installing. In-walls or On-wall brackets for cubes or 161's? You may be best off contacting Bose.

And please accept my apology for the arrogant and condescending responses you get here when you mention the "B" word. Ignore them and maybe they'll crawl back under their rock. biggrin.gif
