Bottom Line:   
I worked at Futureshop as a PE in Home Theatre where I had a chance to listen to and compare these in many different situations to other products. The system itself is typical Bose "no highs, no lows", however most people have little experience with any home theatre and this is a nice first surround, I do know there is a 100% mark up in price (most speakers are) so DO NOT pay full retail or they quickly become a really expensive entry level surround. All the wires and proprietary connections are in the box. No adjusting crossovers and such on your receiver, just volume. They do go loud enough with little distortion, and the lack of ANY deep bass is a neighbor pleaser. If you want a basic 5.1 that sounds good to most people, Bose makes sound that people LIKE to hear, it may not be the way the Artist or Director intended it to sound, (sorry audio purists) but it's they way %90 of the people think sounds good to them. Listen to them and right away you will know if you need the extra bass or treble that others systems may offer. If you didn't know what home theatre is or never owned it before these will amaze you.

Bottom Line:   
Found out that I don't have to plug in AC if I don't want the heavy duty base, all 5 speakers still works.
Don't have a on/off switch, so if it's plug in, it must be on all time.
Don't order from FutureShop (Canada). They shipped by CanadaPost and the mailman left at my front door when no one answered. This is the dealer and shipping matter, not the Bose unit itself

Bottom Line:   
this speaker is just great because of the great sound and the smallest speaker cube. If i should recommand speakers to somewone the do not love bass frequencys, i would defenlatly not recommand the bose acoustimass because the subwoofer is really loud and you can't turn it off.

I love these speakers, i dont think i could buy anything other than a bose again. It is extremely hard to tell where the bass is coming from and there is no distortion from the acoustimass module. If you watch a video clip of a rolercoaster, you feel like you are right on it with everyone else. I would highly recoment these to anyone. Room filling sound, small, stylish speakers. PLENTY of length of wire. There is no distortion from the stellites either. :)

Bottom Line:   
I bought the AM10III about a year ago. I am very pleased with the system. I live in an apartment, and didn't want something too large. So l looked at the bose, infinity tss1100, and polk rm6900. The polk sounded ok, looked horrible. So they were out. The Infinity system sounded the best, but I liked the bose appearance better. The bose sounded great, not quite as good as the Infinity though. I ended up buying the bose, took them home and love them. One thing I didnt like, was the way they must be set up. Had I known the way they are required to be set up, I might have went with Infinity. Bose requires you hook all the sattelites up through the bass module, then from there you run a seperate cable to your reciever. If you run the sattelites directly to your reciever you void the warranty. The bose sattelites fill my living room with sound. I read a lot of reviews claiming this system lacks high frequency response. I disagree, highs sound great, crisp and clear. Where it does lack, however, is on the lower end. It doesnt handle the low frequencies like a true subwoofer. For movies the bass module does the job. If you listen to music on the system is where you really notice the low end problems. Just doesn't do R&B, hip hop, or rap music any justice. Country music, rock, and other types of music you dont notice it so much. Another thing I would like to point out, is that these cube speakers will not distort. I can crank them up and they do great. Distortion is something I just cant handle. It drives me crazy. These cube speakers do really well at high volumes. The bass module unfortunately, struggles to keep up. If you are not a bass crazy individual, this is the system for you, or perhaps you live in an apartment, duplex or somewhere your neighbors are really close, this isnt a bad idea. A really bass heavy system might cause some tensions there. Overall I give it 4 out of 5. It really is perfect for my situation.
