IDK, they look pretty straight forward. Straight forward is good enough. Bose, though I hate to mention them, used to make headphones that looked pretty similar and I think we'll all agree that Bose is a company that's more willing to invest in their appearance than their sound engineering.

Bose's stuff is just plain ugly TBH. They just find stuff that people want to be good (i.e. small speakers with lots of bass, clock radio that replaces huge speakers etc...). Of course people change their minds and think they look awesome just because they've been convinced that bose is great. If bose sold computers they'd be beige Pentium II's.

Nice hypole, more like they'd be plastic grey gateways with i2 processors which is a re badged pentium d, then they wouldn't even release specs for it, or the integrated graphics card. they'd then let it perform in gaming in a $120,000 room, only using the bose computer to pass a video feed through a $10,000 custom gaming rig, hidden in the back room in their display room, then they'd brag that they have the smallest performing gaming computer int he world.

LOL, you know nothing. Bose will pretty much use the most apealing to lowest common denominator in price ratio. they will choose the materials that cost the least in which the most people can't tell the difference in quality. Bose is one of the smartest companies regarding marketing. they spend less on materials than pyle audio, yet make more money than Focal, Whardael diamond, Energy, Thiel, Quad, and Mcintosh COMBINED. The average person is a complete retard with only 100 IQ. they can not tell the difference in quality between bose, and Anthony Gallo's nucleus loudspeaker with a great 10 inch sub and a Hifi receiver, which would cost the same exact price, yet sound way better. most people if given the chose would pick the Bose over Orb audio, or even better Gallo's. Bose uses the cheapest materials they can get their hands on. It's that simple.

In reality, Bose's performance on their most expensive acoustimass system? The bass is muddy and not detailed at all. bose will literally stick 2 6 inch drivers in a 1 cu ft box, then bandpass it so you will not hear the drivers bottom out as well. These are garbage quality enclosures as well as drivers. The subwoofer itself will PLAY frequencies from maybe 30Hz-150Hz. the distortion is probably over 30% at low 30Hz range at under 50 decibels, sounding muddy all the way up to 150Hz, not detailed at all and maybe put out 90db with over 20%THD at it's best level to my guess from hearing the subs myself The plain simple fact that the sub has to play frequencies well up over 100Hz means you can easily locate the subwoofer, which makes everything sound weird. for home theater, you NEVER, EVER want this. noises that usually make a resounding "Thump" will be very boomy for the given noise and soung more like "THUWWOWOWOWOWODOHWOHDQOWDQ NFLNFLNFLIQFNIHQPHQOWOWOWOWOWOWOW OQDQODJQOIFDJQWWOWWOWOWOWOW" This makes watching movies on a bose system undesirable for me. The satelite speakers bottom out maybe from 120-150 Hz by my guess. The drivers are so small and have such little exursion that it is physically impossible to bottom out lower. This is why I say the sub is crossed over at the complete wrong frequency and know it's true, not just by my ear, which can locate a 100 htz crossed over sub instantly, even on a velodyne DD 10. I say this from anecdotal experience. It is WAY more obvious on a bose system than my friend's PSB T4 tower system with his sub, Image b1 rears and some PSB center with his Sherwood receiver and Velodyne DD 10 sub. The frequency response going from 150-2000Hz on Bose satellites sound extremely tinny and weak. sounds from 2000-what I'm guessing is around 18,000 Hz is just as bad, and probably can't produce past 85db. the distortion is terrible on both the subs and the satellite drivers.

in case you think I was talking out of my ass, I found some pics of the acoustimass drivers for you.





I never looked inside a Bose sub, but somehow i could just tell what was inside of it, Two little garbage sub drivers and a terrible bandpass system.



Her'es their crappier sub, even worse lol.

You can literally spend $80 on a polk PSW10, or around $100 on some Dayton sub and rape bose's best sub, where does the rest of the $1000 you paid for go?

their garbage class D amplification? no, maybe $50 for that... what about the other $850?



oh damn, that's worse than a logitech 2300 driver made by Tang Band. maybe $15 for that garbage little thing.

now what about the rest of the $775 you paid?

I'd say another $20 in materials.

So basically bose makes what I'm guessing is $755 per thousand you spend on them. This is marketing genius here. They are making people think they are the best speakers in the world while making definitely over 75% proffits, maybe 50% profits with research if you wanna be stingy.

Now do you see why bose is the wallmart that people think is a butique store of sound equipment?
