That's it right there. So many people today are putting audio systems in their main living rooms. Mostly (but not always) the wives don't want to 'see' any speakers, just hear them. Bose understands this and makes these pukey sounding speakers to fill the void, as these types of people have no appreciation for sound.
Case in point, my new next door neighbor. Now that our Canadian $ is so high, he can't wait for his next trip to the states. Him and his wife plan on buying a BOSE system for their living room (bungalow) as they want sound other than their T.V. set. I started to explain to him what a rip off BOSE was, he was giving me this weird kinda look - then it hit me. He could care less what they sound like. He just wants to something to reproduce some kind of semblence of sound but LOOKS real nice and small (compact) that can be put anywhere and stay almost hidden. I stopped in mid-sentence and said yeah, go get the BOSE, knock yourself out. See, I won't be going over there to watch any movies or listen to any music, so what do I care.
To the OP - I don't really care. Knock yourself out. However, what others are saying here is true. This is not a subwoofer and is meant to be used with the BOSE Acoustimas speaker system, so if you want it, buy the whole thing. Set it up, and please stop coming here. You obviously want form and function over quality and sound reproduction, this is kind of an audiophile area, this is not a place for someone like you.
