Hi guys,




I have recently moved into new property and previous owner left the Bose redline double cube satellite speakers in the living area.


However I will need to buy the subwoofer and correct receiver to use these speakers and not to burn the new receiver.




Some people says Bose satellites should go with proprietary Bose subwoofers and some people says its all good as long as you have to correct output that kinda stuff.




Anyway I have done some researches and narrowed it down to few options as below.




For the subwoofer:


- Jamo SUB 210


- Paradigm PDR80


- Pioneer S-51W


- Polk HTS10




For the receiver:


- Pioneer VSX531


- Pioneer VSX832


- Yamaha RX-V483

A lot of Bose systems wire their speakers back to the subwoofer, and as the speakers don't come even close to offering much bass, the sub needs to be adjusted to compensate - meaning it NEEDS to be located in a central position, preferably under the TV. If it's not positioned there, you'll hear mid-bass (male baritone etc) coming from the subwoofer - this is a bizarre experience to say the least.


The Bose speakers will also require some heavy, heavy, heavy EQ'ing...


So basically, stick with Bose if you want to keep the speakers.


If you don't want to go with Bose, pull the speakers off the wall and install other satellite speakers of your choice.
