        Comments about Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30 Soundbar Speaker and Wireless Subwoofer:

        This unit is a very good bargain! It is very easy to hook up with one optical cord to the TV and a power cable, that is it! I have a 14 yr old daughter that likes to crank up Sirius radio and her iPod on the system. It handles that with NO problem. The wireless sub works well anywhere you have power. I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality. I was going to buy a Bose Solo TV model and it would not fit my TV size. SO I built a stand for the TV to sit on and raise it up over the main speaker. Learns your SAT remote no need for additional remotes!! It is amazing, you will love it!!!

            Hi,

            First let me start by saying that the sound is incredible. I love the soundbar. Great sound, easy set up and very attractive.

            Three months after owning it the soundbar stopped working. It was a new unit, not used, refurbished etc. I contacted them and they wanted me to ship it back. It cost 78 dollars to ship it. About two weeks later I received it back. It was not my original equipment. The grid had a bad smudge/stain that took quite some time to make it presentable. The subwoofer returned to them had non of the 'feet' permanently glued on. The one mailed back to me had the 'feet' glued on to bottom. It is a refurbished unit. Miy subwoofer was always placed on the side. On top of that, it has a ding on the bottom. Mine was mailed in pristine shape.

            I contacted them immediately and explained that the equipment I received was refurbished when I mailed brand new, not scratch and dent or refurbished equipment. It took them several months and several phone calls and emails for them to decide to replace the subwoofer. I received an email with a Fedex label. I called and asked how long it would take to get my subwoofer back once it's returned. They said 2 to 4 weeks!! I have been dealing with this since May, yes May! I expressed my shock that it could take 4 weeks and the person didn't seem to care.

            I personally think this is poor customer service. I plan to keep the damaged subwoofer at this point. Buy at your own risk! If I was to do it over, I'd buy a different system. I'd take a lower quality one or pay more for a better or comparable one with better customer service. It's simply a great product attached to poor personnel.

            Update 7/4/12

            I contacted Boston Acoustics yet again on 7/2/12. I suggested that I purchase a replacement sub-woofer and when the replacement is shipped to me I would return the damaged one for a refund. Upper management relayed the message to the person I was speaking to on the phone that we already have an agreement for the damaged sub-woofer be returned in order to ship a new one. They again would not budge. They assured me that it would not take 2 to 4 weeks if I called when shipped out. They would track the package and send the other one out immediately. I thought my suggestion was reasonable and the person on the phone thought it was also. Upper management shot it down. I honestly don't how this could be anything but a win/win situation for them. They not only create a great sounding sound bar but also create a world of frustrations.

            Comments about Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30 Soundbar Speaker and Wireless Subwoofer:

            I installed this sound bar in my TV room, just 4'x4', and already tested with some blu-ray movies; it really rocks: it adds an excellent sound to any movie or sports match, the higher frequencies are crystal-clear and the subwoofer adds the perfect touch when low-frequency is required. The installation is very quick, just 1 cable (optical) for sound, and 2 power cords, the settings are quite easy. There's no separate remote control for this soundbar, and programming the same control from my Sony TV was matter of 1 minute.
            Maybe the only problem, the soundbar feels some unstable when installing it tabletop, specially at the reach of children. Solution: put it in a higher place (which I did), or else hang it on the wall.
