Bose Speaker Systems: A Review of the Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System

By | May 22, 2023

Bose speaker systems are well known for their quality and excellent sound production. There are a lot of these models, but one of them that I would highly recommend is the Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System. This set of speakers is perfect for connecting to any device – computers, TVs, DVD players, and everything in between. This review will cover everything you need to know about it.

General Description

What this set of speakers is best proud of is its compact size that’s excellent in any location. The Acoustimass subwoofer is smaller than most other models, the cube speakers are definitely compact, and each of speakers come in a stand that’s 3.5” tall. You can place the speakers on a desk and the subwoofer under a table or in a glass shelf – it’s your choice. This set is very easy to place in any location, and it’s definitely good-looking for any home décor and room setting.

The dimensions of the speakers are 2.5″ x 2.75″ x 2.5″ and their weights are 80 ounces each. The Acoustimass module has the dimensions of 8.5″ x 6.75″ x 13.75″ and it weighs 14.7 pounds. There’s also a control pod which has the dimensions of 2.5″ x 1.13″, and its compactness is almost negligible, you can just place it in any tabletop or desk and it wouldn’t even make a difference.

Every piece of the device is colored a sleek black and the grilles are silver. The dark color makes them look good even with constant weathering, and they also remain in good condition after several years of use. You can match them easily with any home décor and their aesthetically pleasing appearance is a big plus for their value.


Like most Bose speaker systems, this is a very expensive set of speakers, but you would definitely find its quality worth the price. The speakers are the main source of sound, and they are responsible for producing high frequencies and mid to high range of tones. The Acoustimass, on the other hand, has the entire responsibility over the lower frequencies and notes, making sure that every piece of the set has a special task that it should fulfill in order to create a complete system. The proprietary TrueSpace stereo digital processing circuitry is a trademark Bose feature incorporated in this device to create a wide two-channel sound amplification which is especially designed for maximum listening satisfaction. There’s also an incorporated compression circuitry that keeps the music clear and crisp, undistorted even at high volume levels, for the best sound production you can find.

Other Features

The control pod allows access for volume control, single-touch mute, and also audio in and out jacks for privately listening on earphones or playing from another audio source like an MP3 player. The satellite speakers have a magnetic shield which prevents signal interference to keep the music clear and smooth. The active electronic equalization is responsible for adjusting the low, mid, and high frequencies to keep them balanced, and to make the system produce a more natural and clear tone.


Although there are several Bose speaker systems, the Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System is one of the best models that the company offers. If you’re looking for a great Bose speaker system that you’ll add to your home entertainment system, then this is the speaker set that I would highly recommend.
