Works as advertised. Sound is very clear and it looks great. You can hear sounds you do not hear with out it. I have a hard time distinguishing words such as shows with people from England. With this speaker system, the words are clear and crisp. I installed it under my 55 inch Samsung which fits perfect. Any thing larger it might be to big to set on top. The only thing I do not like, I can not program it to turn on with my Direct TV controller. The speaker turns off by its self when not in use. Other wise, I feel it was worth the price.
Let me start by stating that I am a HUGE fan and advocate of everything Bose and I own many of their products, which include; Soundlink, Accoustamass, L1 system with Tonematch and B2 subwoofer and finally, in-ear headphones. That being said, I purchased this Solo 15 with expectations of setting it up, which was very easy and being blown away. However, after a few days of break-in time, it did sound "Okay", which as I stated earlier in the title of this review, a disappointment. Long story short; I ended up returning the Solo15 with great disappointment, for the Klipsch model SB120, which is a larger unit, with better sound and all in all a better value.
I purchased this to replace a Sony Sound Bar (Box) for my HD Flat Screen TV. The Sony sounded good but the Bose sounds better. Clearer sounds and adjustable bass by remote. The only thing I don't like about this is that the Sony had the volume adjustment levels (by numbers) that could be viewed on the front of the box. The Bose doesn't have this and the only way you can determine sound level is when the sound gets louder. There are green buttons that blink that you can view on the front of the box when adjusting the sound. Other then that I'm happy with the Bose.
The Bose Solo TV Speakers is the first version of the Solo series. It is simple to use. The hook up is easy as well. It comes with a four button remote with on and off, increase volume, decrease volume, and a mute button. There are four two inch speakers facing forward with the bass speaker facing at the rear. The speaker sold for $300+ new. I would say the Solo Speaker is just okay. It is better than my tv speakers. It would have been nice to have sound quality controls to increase the bass and so on. It is still a Bose sound system.
I would really recommend it, even I pay around $180 , when you put the BASS in MAX, there you fell the difference. Also, the Bluetooth connection is a MUST HAVE, and this feature is included in this system, since you can play music directly from your phone in a very easy way.
