Nope. Your best bet is to sell that junk and get a real sub and speakers. A lot of people the BOSE is great. You won't have any problem selling it for a good price.

Sure you can. BUT...

1) You have to use the same speaker wires from the bass module to the Jamo's.

2) the results (anticipated) may be unsatisfactory due to the fact that Bose uses x-over's and EQ specific for the cubes.


Caveats:

You could try disconnecting the front left/right speaker wires at the receiver and run new/dedicated speaker wires to the Jamo's and just use the bass module for surround/center channels.


If the model speaker is not "full range" (20Hz - 20kHz), a real subwoofer would be suggested.


Either way(s), I agree that if you are not happy with the sound and want to upgrade, sell the entire Bose AM-6 system and get 5 speakers and a subwoofer.

Well the problem is that i live in a flat and i have neighbours all around me.Bose is already more then enough. All the people say to sell my bose system but i cant afford big speakers for a small room and in a flat.I can get in trouble with big speakers.Also whats the points of buying big speakers when i cant turn up the volume that high ?

Even at low volume, bigger speakers will better represent the entire freq range and sound much better.

What's your budget? Do you want to sell your Bose system to recoup some of the cost? If Jamo is available in Malta, then surely there are other brands as well and we may be able to help you.

IMO... keep what you have until you decide to move or the system dies.

Don't "upgrade" just because "all the people say" to sell your Bose system.

I agree. He has had this system for a couple of months now and after reading several of his threads feel he knows what his recommendations on that front are going to be....Otoh, Malta must be an extraordinary place to live and I'm sure I would be enjoying my Bose system if I lived there!

Yeah every one telling me to sell the bose.I only bought it from last january and im happy with it , well maybe my ears are not trained to hear what very good sound is,but my bose sounds very good for me especially when watching movies in DTS or Dolby.


For those who want to suggest speakers for me for the future , in malta i can find Jamo , Philips , Onkyo , Yamaha , Pioneer , Atlantic Technology Systems etc. I dont really want to spend more than 600-700 euros. Can i get a good 5.1 with around that ammount ?

The saying goes... "if it's not broken, don't fix it."

Enjoy what you have. Don't let everyone intimidate you.

Hey, he said he wanted to upgrade his speakers and not his sub. Basically he can't so I gave him the suggestion to sell it and get a different system. What's wrong with that?

If he has the Acoutimas system...he currently does not have a subwoofer. We understand...he doesn't, or cannot, have his system very loud...but gaps in the freq range are going to be audible even at moderate volume.

Headphones and a buttshaker. A real subwoofer will get you evicted.

Sell the Bose and get what you can for them now while they are new. Then buy some quality speakers and a dedicated sub. You don't need 5.1 right away and can build a speaker system.


Atlantic Technology would be my recommendation.

But the Atlantic Technology are very expensiver. More than 1,800 euros.

Re-read post #3. There could be alternatives as opposed to "Nope".

Friends don't let friends buy BOSE!

Yeah it sounds better at lower volume .My problem is that when my bose is at low volume,i wont hear the dialogue volume from the centre speaker very good.But when an action come during a movie , its very high. So i always higher the volume to hear the dialogue and lower it again during an action.
