The Bose Solo TV Sound System is a single speaker that works like a sound bar. It requires only two cables for hook-up and you can place it directly under most flat panel HDTVs up to 37" and many up to 42" as well. The Solo features Bose's speaker array technology for clear sound reproduction. It also supports proprietary digital signal processing, which optimizes and adjusts the sound at any volume level. For connectivity, the Solo is equipped with an optical digital audio input, a coaxial digital audio input and an RCA L/R stereo analog audio input. It even includes an optical cable and a compact four-button remote that controls power, volume and mute. Bose offers an optional universal remote as well.

Bose Speaker Array Technology
The Solo's advanced Bose speaker array technology reproduces a wide range of sound evenly throughout the room from a compact enclosure.

The system's proprietary digital signal processing adjusts and optimizes the sound at any volume level. When you're watching your show, there's no need to tweak the volume when a quiet moment suddenly becomes loud.
Single Speaker Design
The Solo fits neatly under most flat panel HDTVs up to 37" and many up to 42" as well. You can also set it below a wall-mounted TV, or on a shelf or media cabinet. No additional equipment is needed.
Easy Connection
To connect the Solo, all you need to do is make one connection to the TV and then plug the speaker into the wall.

      I set this up in our den, where we watch most of our TV. The primary reason I bought this was to enhance the dialog (speech) from the shows and movies we watched. Our Samsung TV was fine with the music and sound effects, but I could never get it set so that the people speaking in the show could be clearly heard without turning up the volume very loudly. The Bose Solo was just the answer. The dialog is now "in front" of the music and sound effects so we can listen to a TV show or movie and clearly hear what the characters are saying without turning the volume up so loud that we risk waking the kids at night.

      The only reason I did not give this five stars is I wish I could get a little more bass out of the unit. There is only one adjustment you can make to increase or decrease the bass and i would like a little more when I am listening to iTunes radio through the TV.

      Bought this to improve sound from my big flat screen TV in a small room. (46 inch 2 yr old Samsung lcd)Thought it would be a big improvement. couldn't tell much difference. Maybe my Audiophile ears are getting too old. Product is solid in construction and looks, very easy to install and very well packaged.

        Comments about Bose Solo TV Sound System:

        This is one of the pricier sound bars but worth every penny as far as I'm concerned. It doesn't come with a sub or an equalizer option but Bose did the leg work and this is hands down the best "plug and play" option out there, not to mention the best looking.

          Comments about Bose Solo TV Sound System:

          Using this speaker in my kitchen where we've got a small tv. We needed the boost in sound quality so we could hear over the stove and whatnot. It's a really clean looking product (only 2 wires) and it looks like my tv was made to sit on top of it. However, a drawback is that there is no longer volume control from your tv remote. You MUST use a separate bose remote (included) to volume up or down. There is also no indication on screen as to what volume level you're at. You have to do everything by ear, which is ok, but sometimes it's nice to have a number indication of some sort. As for the sound quality, I can't complain. It is able to go much louder and the voices do sound crisper somehow. The bass is also a big improvement from the built in tv speakers, but obviously it's no match for a sound system that has a subwoofer. At [$] bucks, it does seem a little overpriced, but overall I'm very satisfied with this purchase. It's a very clean solution for a small tv.

            I bought this to enhance the sound of my flat screen TV. (It seems they all need it, unfortunately!) The Bose Solo does just that. Speech is clearer and music is infinitely better. It was a snap to setup, too.

            It would be nice if there was some visual feedback for volume level, but I imagine that will be available in the next iteration.

              Comments about Bose Solo TV Sound System:

              I wanted a sound system for my projector that was clear and accurate, without the huge range of dynamics that a subwoofer surround sound system has- I live in an apartment an need to keep the volume modest. This did the trick!

                  TRY SOMETHING ELSE if you wish to impRove the quality of your flat screen. . . sound, which you probably do wish. We intend to return the Bose, and try
                  an equalizer (from B & H, of course!) . Hopefully, that will give us some measure of control and, hopefully, greater clarity of distinct sounds--especially at the lower ends of speech. I wish I could give a better appraisal.

                  I like what it soounds, certainly a difference form what it comes out from the TV, its more clear, especially the voice. Its neat and tidy in size and fits well, easy to install and operate. But I ther eis no bar to see how much I can raise the volume, or lower down, so I cannot measure at what level I need to use it most of the time. That is a minus.

                    This sound system was installed right below my Sony HD Flat Screen TV. The sound out of the TV speakers was good but not that good. This thing is awsome!! The volume setting on the Bose is lower since the sound is so much more crisp, and easy to hear. The appearance fits right in with the other components and is a sleek addition that compliments the whole set-up. The only thing not so great, is that I didn't get one sooner!
