About the Product
Five-speaker systems are great for home theater—but they’re not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. That’s why we developed Companion® 5 speakers. They’re designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module . You’ll hear multichannel sound in a way that seems to surround you—without the clutter of five speakers. And setup is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.
This powerful THX-certified speaker system makes it easy for you to turn any room into a home theater. Hear every tire squeal, footstep and rumble the way the studio intended - in 5.1 discreet channels of explosive, detailed surround sound.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System – Graphite/Silver
  • This sound system, especially for the size, is unbelievably fantastic.
  • The sound that comes from these small stylish speakers is wonderful for the size and they look incredible.
  • The speakers have a nice weight to them but are not at all bulky.
  • Bass is excellent for its size(enough for the system considering that its only 2 speakers)
  • The weighted control pod with a non-slip material on the bottom provides great tactile feel and ease of control.
  • The amount of metal and weight to them proved misleading, sadly.
Logitech Z906 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System
  • In spite of their size, the heavy satellite speakers produce not only very clean high frequency response, but also clear midrange, which speakers this size usually cannot do.
  • It fills my medium sized room with good quality music.
  • The speakers give out a good sound and the bass....its great for it's size.
  • Great sound system its heavy (weight) and does sound very crisp does not distort at max volume quality speakers satellite speakers have good heavy magnets in them good bass tested with heavy rock at max and still sounds great.
  • The remote is small but sturdy, it has a nice weight to it so it doesn't seem like a toy.

What customers say about "Features"
Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System – Graphite/Silver
  • These are defintely some powerful speakers.
  • The sound is bright and colorful with a lot of power behind it.
  • Awesome clarity, powerful enough for a party!!
  • The wired remote feature is rather useful as well and easy to get use to.
  • Wish there were more inputs for the 3.5mm jack, but I've bought a 3.5mm jack splitter so I can add additional sources.
Logitech Z906 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System
  • This is a very nice all-in-one 5.1 surround sound setup. No extra electronics required. Plug in everything to the amp on the sub and off you go!
  • This is a must have speaker system for gamer. You can hear all the details in games when is 5.1 mode. Sound quality is very very good overall!!
  • Subwoofer is small but has VERY rich powerful bass, does not get distort when pushed to its limits and will shake your house with quality sound if needed.
  • The bass is powerful without being overpowering although you can adjust it to be overpowering if you prefer that.
  • Being able to switch between inputs is also another very nice upgrade. The remote is also a huge help.
  • Input cables going into the back of the sub is NOT a good design idea. Subs put out low frequencies, which means most people know you can hide them anywhere out of the way and you can still hear them.

What customers say about "Audio"
Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System – Graphite/Silver
  • Coming to higher frequencies, the speakers are relatively OK.
  • I can hear every single snare and bass frequency.
  • Subwoofer provides excellent very low frequency sounds.
  • The audio imaging is remarkable, with separation of vocals, strings, woodwind, percussion, etc.
  • The ultra high frequency response is way too loud for me.
  • The volume adjustment is a little too sensitive as well, so be careful with it.
Logitech Z906 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System
  • They seem sensitive to the audio input, as they will stay on until I touch the audio select button.
  • Fabulous low frequency bass levels that will penetrate through the walls if you want.
  • This really helps with the upper frequencies most.
  • The response sounds flat across the entire frequency range. Highly recommended.
  • And the lack of mid-range frequencies is really a shame.
