Pros the system was relatively inexpensive and substantially better quality than a home theater in a box. The speakers are easy to mount and are inconspicuous.The corner mounting brackets are a really nice touch as well. I highly recommend this product.
Cons I have no negative comments
Summary This was the best home theater purchase I have ever made. My goal was to have a big sound without spending thousands of dollars on speakers. The size and mounting options of the speakers are a big plus as well. I was able to mount the speakers using the custom corner brackets so that the speakers compliment the room, not visually over power it. For someone who wants something more than a theater ina box but does not want the expensive investment this is an incredible value.
Pros Small, stylish, coaxial mounted tweeter set into the speakers. The sub is more powerful than many other HTIB speaker packages I've found.
Cons The extreme lows are hard to reproduce...
Summary The reviews on here complain about the sub woofer crapping out & that's unfortunate. I've had mine for over six months with no problems. Anyway, this speaker package is great for my small man cave situation. When you consider the size, these speakers sound great (I have beer coasters that are bigger). Would larger, bookshelf or floorstanding speakers sound bigger & fuller? Of course they would. I enjoy listening to music, watching HD cable, gaming, Blu-Ray movies etc. I like to watch my girlfriend look around her when watching movies & bullets or planes or spaceships fly past!
As I said, when listening to some of my music I hear (or rather don't hear) a lack in the extreme lows at lower volumes. The bass IS present, if not overwhelming.
Pros As with the other review the sound was good for a few days and matches the other sattelite cubes well. I have a polk audio subwoofer with the system now that works ok but it is not matched to the system and is under powered at high volumes.
Cons The subwoofer broke after 3 days.
Warranty repair said nothing wrong
Broke again after a few days
Horrible service and reconciliation
No accountability for product or replacement of product
Summary A few days after installation, I turned the unit on and heard a lot boom from the subwoofer, it shook the windows in the house. It then started to distort and and the volume control stopped working, it played at max volume. I sent it in for warranty repair and the repair arm of the company said they couldn't find anything wrong with the system. They sent it back, and it played fine for a couple of days and then started disorting again.
I found this system online at just4electronics for $250. Something tells me this item was a resale and Boston Acoustics iknew about the subwoofer problem. The system was awesome for a few days but the consequences and service make the system a total loser for Boston Acoustics
Pros Great sound before it stops workng
Cons The system only worked for one week?
Summary I just bought the Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 5.1, and the subwoofer stop working, the led from the subwoofer is not working also? I already reviewed all the connections and the power supply, and all is ok?The fusible is ok also?. The system only worked for one week? I don't recomend this product...
