Not familiar with any Bose audio hardware meant for restaurants or bars. Their
home theater and audio players and speakers are crapware posing as high end.
Stay away from Bose. Now be a little specific about what sources need to be played,
size of room and budget and suggestions will pop up.

I would rather light my money on fire then buy anything from Bose. Everything they make is way overpriced and doesn't perform well at all. But people still seem to flock to their cute little micro systems that don't perform well.

Bose is right up there with....

that guy who has a bridge to sell you
ethanol
three card monte
slot machines at an indian casino
Barney Frank
the Nigerian prince who just needs a few thousand dollars to free up millions

socialism

They are all just plain awful and are a waste of money better spent elsewhere.

So you guys all have heard Bose professional audio gear? I am just curious, because I have read that the pro gear is pretty decent and nothing like the junk they sell for home use. But now that your egos feel better, maybe some helpful suggestions for the guy?

He would need to give more specifics on area, number of speakers, number of sources, how many discrete zones, etc. the more info the better the suggestions. That being said, I've used some pro Bose equipment in a retail and restaurant environment. While it was far from terrible, it still did not justify the price.

Sweetwater.com sells all kinds of pro audio equipment and speakers. They hardly carry any Bose products.
This stuff looks worse than their consumer products.

I've been to hundreds of concerts and bars/dance halls with dj's and never seen anybody ever use Bose anything,
especially speakers. They do custom and oem installs for uninformed suckers. And the TS has 1 post so far....

So now we ALL feel great, about ourselves. Even our "betters", as they say across the pond.


Pro gear is usually overpriced junk in the wall. Installation dealers racket. Never heard a GREAT football game on those kind of things(although, I bet SOMEONE will have rolleyes.gif ). Usually, stuck with crappy MUZAK type music on the music "system" while trying to hear the game from crappy flat panel speakers. What's the point?

Personally, I never understood why people just don't use home gear. A Denon AVR with a bunch (4/6/8) of, say (in my case) Canton Ergo 620's(you can pick your own). 10 gauge wire from Blue Jean's cable. Plug DirecTV in. Maybe "All channels Stereo"...... Ah! football/hockey/rugby.......Oh, tennis would be good on that! Oh, yeah - boxing. Even golf!

Well, depending on the size of the bar you might be limited to too few speakers, you may want discrete stereo zones with different tvs, maybe he would better served by a 70 volt system.

My whole point was nobody offered any actual suggestions, just slammed Bose instead. We seem to have chased the poor guy away. We all know what the opinion of Bose is here and in virtually every other audio forum I have ever seen, but try to help the Newbie!wink.gif

True, but you can get proper gear for splitting and such.

He really should just go online find a handful of installers and set some appointments. Without seeing the place who can give ANY decent advice.

OTOH, Bose. Well, if you bring it up on a website like this, I mean, come on. It's like talking about the basic principles of capitalism that could help the US economy from oblivion , at the White House, nobody's listening or interested. Except, we actually care a great deal more, of course.
