    One step up from the T.V. speakers

    Posted
    sogone2

    Purchased to replace a Bose 3*2*1 which was damaged in a move. Seemed like a comparable replacement as the sub-woofer was identical. I was a bit skeptical of the soundbar, Would it sound as good as two individual satellite speakers? The answer is no. The sound quality is nowhere near as impressive as the 3*2*1. Just a step up from the T.V. speakers thanks to the sub-woofer. Aside from that, the sound quality is extremely disappointing. If you've ever owned a better, more expensive Bose home theater system, you will not be satisfied with this product. Would not recommend.

    Not that great for the price. Had to return the first one because the speaker would POP everytime I would change the channel on the TV. Got the new one home and it does the same thing. Also there is a delay in the sound when i change the channel on the tv, but the first thing I hear is a POP before the program sound. No bluetooth, not wall mountable, and not wireless. Sound is just ok. I would recommend buying something else. Am having buyers remorse and with i could return it but it has been to long.

      Thank you for trying out our Cinemate 15 system. We'd like to help with improving your experience with the system. If you are experiencing a pop when changing channels, we'll want to look at making small changes in your setup. For instance, if your cable/satellite box is connected to the TV with HDMI, let's try running an optical cable directly from the box to the Cinemate system. The popping may be an artifact of the TV's audio processing before output. We can definitely figure this out with you and solve it. You can reach us at 1-800-379-2073 and one of our experienced support specialists can troubleshoot with you for free. We are open from Mon. – Fri., 9 AM – 9 PM EST. Bose

    Easy to install and operate. Sound is just OK, the bass is muddy and poorly defined. There is nothing "spacious and detailed about it. Specious maybe but not spacious. The remote SUCKS! If you need a universal remote, DO NOT buy this unit! None of the supplied codes work, NONE! This would be OK in a non-critical application for casual listening.

      We wanted to let you know that you can try multiple codes for each device without entering other numbers for programming the universal remote. Here is an instructional video that will help you with this:  http://bit.ly/1MiEcEQ If you'd like help with getting the best audio performance from your setup as well as programming the remote, we are here to help.

    The sound from this speaker isn't worth the price.Our previous sound system a JBL,has clearer and better definition speakers,to say the least, we wish we had stayed with what we had.

    The system is good but, the remote is terrible. The only thing the large remote will do is control the volume and power on the system and nothing else.

    Pretty expensive for a sound bar & sub that doesn't put out enough sound. Apparently we paid for the Bose name and not quality of the product.

      The CineMate 15 and CineMate 10 home theater speaker systems deliver
      a spacious home theater experience from a surprisingly small soundbar
      and hideaway Acoustimass module. They are designed for someone
      who wants their home theater system to be simple to setup and simple to
      use.

      CineMate 15 and CineMate 10 home theater speaker systems were
      designed specifically for the customer who wants to minimize the visual
      presence of a home theater system in his or her room. The original
      interface module of the CineMate GS system has been built into the
      CineMate 15 and CineMate 10 soundbar to further reduce visual clutter. Bose

    Very Disappointed! I have purchased Bose for many years. This was the final straw. The included TV speakers sounded almost as good...

    Starting to believe Bose is a little overated. I'd rather go with true 5.1/7.1 theater sound

      Hello memory,

      We're disappointed to read your comments. For a simulated surround sound experience from a soundbar you might consider the Bose SoundTouch 120 or SoundTouch 130. They offer Bose proprietary technology that will measure your room's acoustics and tune the system to your room. Bose
