You may not like this but in the audoi/video community bose is overpriced middle of the road HTIB broduct. you can get a better system for a LOT less than what you payed.

As for the speaker issue' they are bottoming out because those drivers that they use AKA. The cheap $35.00 woofers and $2.00 tweeters were not meant for the application that they use them for, they are the same drivers that they use in their bookshelf speakers and are being ovelrloaded by the extreme LFE and HF content that is being fored through them.

I am surprised the woofers havent blown by now.

Noise Control and Being a Good Neighbour

Whether you live in a private dwelling, or in a multiple home dwelling, such as a condo or apartment building, one should pay attention to controlling the sound from home theatre and stereo systems. In this case, we are generally talking about managing the bass frequencies of the sound system. High frequencies tend to be absorbed by common building materials. The physical/mechanical aspects of sound transmission are complex, but the average person can apply some simple and inexpensive methods to minimize the unwanted transmission of bass frequencies beyond the listening space. <br /> Transmission of bass frequencies can often be controlled by placing bass-producing speakers on pieces of rubber material. These can be as simple as scrap pieces of rubber mat, salvaged rubber feet from other equipment, etc. The physical placement of speakers can determine the amount of bass frequencies that the sound system produces in the listening space. Generally, more bass is generated by placing speakers in corners, and along the shortest wall of a room. <br /> Of course, adjusting the bass and volume controls is a method that can be used to satisfy personal tastes or to control the sound in any situation. Many home sound systems now employ a subwoofer to provide enhanced bass response. This can add lifelike sound quality to the home listening experience, but it is probably the source of most noise complaints. The subwoofer channel of most video program sound tracks has more bass intensity than one generally finds in television, radio or music sound sources. To prevent disturbing the neighbours, one should employ all of the methods detailed above, to reach a happy medium of being able to enjoy full spectrum audio within reason. Personally, I ask my neighbours listen in their homes, while I adjust my maximum sound system volume to a level that they would not complain about. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

Sound Control for Speakers

For those who live in apartment or condo type homes, you can minimize the chance of bothering your neighbours with your stereo by using this simple method; most sound passing to adjacent units is in the bass range. To control this, place a mat of dense rubber under each speaker. This will prevent most of the bass transmission to other parts of the building. You can find dense rubber from many sources; surplus stores, machinery stores, etc. If further bass reduction is warranted, you can move the speakers to different locations in your listening area; corners produce more bass, long walls least bass. There are some shareware, inexpensive, and freeware programs around that allow you to calculate potential sound problems. One oldie but goodie is called "the Room."

What is the measurment between the speakers in a 5.1 home theator for installation time

If you refer to the manual it will be explained. Generally, you have to compensate for two parameters that will vary with the distance and location each speaker will be relative to your listening position. Time delay and loudness.

If you don't compensate, each speaker's sounds from each will arrive at different times and your ear/brain will process the image unclearly and unconvincingly. An echo from behind you might arrive at the same tiome or before the primary event in the recording that created it, for example. The further a speaker is away, the quieter it will seem to be.

Then there's bass management. Using bass-deficient satellites requires the bass to be routed (managed) to a speaker that CAN handle it. This avoids speaker damage of the satellites and is, IMHO, a severe compromise in sound, or a victory of form over function for those who want minimum visibility from their sound systems. Contrary to the press regarding bass as being non-directional an explosion or other loud event from the rear of the room will not be convincing if the bass segment of it comes from in front.

Changing out my monitor speakers to bose cube speakers

You probably can do it as long as the speakers there now are 8 ohm speakers and you must use the bose bass module with the cubes because the crossover is built into the bass module for the cubes to work. If you just wire up the cubes you will mess the cubes up and they want sound right at all. The cubes are no good without their bass module in other words. Hope this helps.

You need to take apart tthe sub woofer and check the connection to bass speaker for continuity. It sounds like an internal broken connection to speaker on sub woofer unit.

Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)
