Product Details

AM10IVBK - Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV Home Entertainment Speaker System - Black

Lifelike clarity and realistic 5.1-channel music and movie sound from your home theater components. This speaker system blends easily into your room, without bulky speakers.

Listen: The lifelike and dramatic sounds of music and movies surround you. Violins are crisp and clear, a chorus seems to fill the room, and movie effects are enveloping and effective. With remarkable sound performance and space-saving efficiency, the Acoustimass® 10 Series IV speaker system works with your surround sound components to bring spaciousness to your favorite music and movies.

Notable performance from speakers you hardly notice

The proprietary powered Acoustimass module provides profound low frequencies throughout the listening area. Two downward-firing drivers in the Acoustimass module give you powerful performance for the lowest audible notes and effects. The module features technology that minimizes audible distortion. You can hide the Acoustimass module virtually anywhere in the room, and you experience dramatic sound that all seems to come from the small cube speaker arrays.

The Acoustimass 10 Series IV speaker system includes four innovative Direct/Reflecting® cube speaker arrays and a horizontal center channel speaker array to produce lifelike effects in 5.1-channel surround sound. Together, they deliver exceptional performance, so music and dialogue ring clear and true.

The Acoustimass 10 Series IV speaker system is engineered to fill the room with beautiful sound … not bulky speakers. With the module hidden away, all you see are the small, décor-friendly speakers. Accessory brackets and stands offer attractive placement options. The result is a rewarding entertainment experience you’ll have to hear to believe. It brings concert hall, movie theater and ballpark excitement into your living room.

Features:

  • Powered Acoustimass® Module:
    • Hear the full, rich sound that adds drama to music and movies. Downward-firing drivers and proprietary technology deliver the lowest audible notes and effects with clarity and balance.
  • Direct/Reflecting® Cube Speaker Arrays:
    • Legendary Bose® technology that blends reflected and direct sound to recreate much of a live concert's natural spaciousness. Experience stereo sound almost anywhere in the room, not just in one small "sweet spot."
  • Direct/Reflecting® Speaker Technology:
    • Experience lifelike spaciousness from a natural balance of reflected and direct sound—similar to a live performance.
  • Horizontal Center-Channel Speaker:
    • Designed to visually complement flat-panel TV screens while delivering natural-sounding dialogue and vocals.
  • Acoustimass® Speaker Technology:
    • Experience powerful, rich, low-frequency effects. Place the module almost anywhere in your room and all the sound appears to come from the cube speakers.

I have owned this speaker system for 7 months now so I figured I would finally write a review. I had been looking for a speaker system to replace the current store-brand model I had. I wasn't pleased with Bose's own receivers but I do generally enjoy their speakers and headphones. I purchased a different receiver than what Bose was offering (an Onkyo model) but it works nicely with the Bose Acoustimass 10 Series V speakers. I went with the Bose speakers as I did not need or want a 7.1 setup, the room where the speakers are setup physically cannot accommodate a 7.1 speaker setup. Overall, I am very pleased with these speakers. Each satellite speaker actually has two drivers and they are facing slightly different directions. This ensures that sound should reach every area of the room while still maintaining proper sound space. I can easily differentiate between front left, front right, rear left, rear right, and center channels. Everything is crystal clear with these. The highs are sharp without being piercing, the mids are well represented, and the lows are thunderous with the bass unit. Technically this isn't a subwoofer but the bass produced by the unit is above and beyond most actual subwoofers I have listened to. I ended up turning the bass down a little bit as the bass unit was placed in the corner of my theater room giving it some natural amplification. Setup was super easy. All speaker cables run to the bass unit. The cables provided by Bose are extremely long, I didn't have to buy extension cables to reach the behind my couch with the rear satellite speakers. There is a single, bunched cable running from the bass unit to the receiver. It too was substantially long. My receiver sits about 5 ft from the bass unit and I still have slack in the connecting cable. I used the microphone with my receiver and auto-calibrated the speakers. I then went through my receiver settings to make sure they matched with what Bose recommended. I didn't have to change any setting, they all matched what Bose laid out in the instructions. I am very pleased with these speakers and they add a lot to my home theater setup. I feel like I have cinema quality audio in the comfort of my home. The satellite speakers blend in with their environment and the bass unit is smaller than most dedicated subwoofers. Yes, these are expensive but they are well worth it for their sound quality, ease of setup, and small form factor.

I recently bought a Accoustamas 10 speaker set for a home that I am building. I love the sound produced by this product, but I am somewhat disappointed by the use of proprietary cabling that is incorporated in the speaker design. I want to run speaker cables in the walls and place the accoustamas module in the back of my room. The non-standard cabling and connectors that are used will make this task much harder than it should be. I down graded my overall rating of this product just because of the compatibility issue created by the cabling design. I had a accoustimas stereo prior this so I knew that speakers were wired to the base module and not the receiver, but I did not know that the 10 was built with non-standard connectors. I do not know how to interface the speakers to speaker wire in the walls

Premium sound without proprietary restriction

Comments about Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV Silver Home Entertainment Speaker System - Silver Finish:

It's been a lifelong dream to own a Bose system. However, coming to know the products, I knew most came paired with a Bose receiver unit. Shopping around at a Showcase store, I was introduced to this unit which I learned I was able to pair with my own receiver. The flexibility of this product, along with its sheer superiority in sound and ease of setup makes it an utter winner. I only hold back a star on the rating because I do wish that more wiring were available as a purchasable accessory. There's a restriction in the current setup as you are only supplied with 2 50' cables with purchase. Allowing customers to more readily purchase wiring per their needs can go a long way! Keep up the amazing work, and helping folks like me make their dreams come true

Comments about Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV Silver Home Entertainment Speaker System - Silver Finish:

I am truly a Bose fan, as they are the only speaker system I end up buying after looking at others. When I look at price and sound quality of other brands I run back to the "BOOM" for your buck of Bose. For me they are the best for your buck. We have many of their products in all of our homes. We also like the small size of the system, as they do not take over the room. Only the sound does! And this is why we love BOSE. Most brands have huge boxes or lots of flashy lights and bands on them. its easy to hide Bose in plain sight. All that said I do miss the look of the small cubes on my old (now not working after 15 years) Bose Acoustimass 15 speaker system. The sound is so much better with the new 10 Series V that its easy to over look the new non cube look of them. Running them with a Pioneer Elite SC-85.

      I bought this system to set up in my newly designed "Man Cave". I've always liked Bose speakers but could never afford them. So I decided to splurge and get this Bose Accoustimass 10 Series IV Home Entertainment Speaker System. Best decision I ever made. The sound is so crisp & clear. I'm hearing sounds that I've never heard before. Bass is awsome. Keep up the great work Bose.
