      Answer

      no, inside the box comes with all necessary cables, Coaxial, RCA and Also an optical cable, they are a bit short about 3 feets, but will get the job done to hook it up to any tv. Bluetooth is built in for wireless transmission. it s easy to setup, one end goes to the tv, the other to the soundbar, connect the power cord and you done.

        Answer

        You would not need to in my opinion, but it depends what you want the listening experience to be. The Bose 5 has adjustable bass, which is decent but not movie theater booming by any means. We use ours for watching tv and movies without a subwoofer.

          Answer

          Hello there. Great question. Bose does not publish specifications such as output wattage for our products as we do not believe they help with understanding how loud a product is. The Solo 5 will put out plenty of volume with rich, deep bass and clear highs. We recommend trying it for yourself at home to see exactly how it will sound. The maximum power consumption of the system is 30 watts.

          Hello George, thank you for asking. On the Solo 5 you may adjust the level of the bass and you may enable the "dialog mode" to hear the voices more clearly.

          Answer

          Hello there. Great questions. Usually the Cable box would connect to the TV first and then the Solo would connect to the TV's audio output. We have a video available here: http://bit.ly/21DoZGp that shows the setup. If you ever have any questions, we are here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 800-380-4831.

        Can the soundbar sync with the TV so that you can use the TV remote to control the volume?   (5 Answers)

          Answer

          Most likely yes. Using IR codes you should be able to setup your remotes to control the soundbar's volume. For example, I setup my directv and apple tv remotes to control the volume.

              This system is designed to be a simple one speaker solution for customers who are not interested in having a separate bass speaker. Here is a link to a similar soundbar system that includes a bass module: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/bose-cinemate-15-home-theater-speaker-system-black/8082019.p?id=1219311892549&skuId=8082019

            I would like to hook up the sound bar to multiple gaming consoles and my TV. Can I do that with just the sound bar or is there an accessory that allows me to hook up multiple devices?   (3 Answers)

              Answer

              To accomplish this, you would simply connect all your devices to the television and then the audio output from the television would connect directly to the Solo system. That way, whichever device you see on the television, the sound will come through the Bose.
