Bose® Solo 5 TV sound system



It’s time your TV sounded as good as it looks

The Bose® Solo 5 TV sound system is a one-piece soundbar that brings noticeably better sound to all your favourite TV programmes. It’s engineered to help clearly reproduce everything from dialogue to details. And for even more clarity, its dialogue mode makes every word easier to hear. This soundbar is so versatile you can place it almost anywhere. And with Bluetooth® connectivity, you can play your favourite music wirelessly through the speaker, too.

  • One-piece soundbar delivers noticeably better sound than your TV alone
  • Dialogue mode to hear each word and detail clearly
  • Bluetooth® technology built in for streaming music wirelessly from your phone or tablet
  • One connection to your TV
  • Universal remote controls TV, bass, Bluetooth® connections and more

Hear what you’ve been missing

The sleek design of your flat-screen TV is a beautiful feature. Unfortunately, there’s little room left for speakers. That’s why dialogue and quiet passages can be so hard to hear. The Solo 5 TV sound system is an easy solution, with advanced technologies that deliver the clear audio your TV can’t. And dialogue mode makes every word even easier to understand without having to adjust the volume from scene to scene.

Setup couldn’t be easier

In fact, “setup” may be an overstatement. Simply connect the Solo 5 system to your TV with just one audio cable (optical, coaxial or analogue, in order of preference). The system automatically knows which one you’ve used. The soundbar is so versatile you can place it almost anywhere, whether it’s in front of the TV, on a shelf or even mounted to the wall.

Bring out the bass

Dramatic programmes. Live concerts. Suspenseful series. There are times you just know you’ll want a little more bass when watching TV. Go ahead—you can adjust the bass control to your liking with the remote control’s bass control button.

Universal control

Take command of your Blu-ray Disc™ player, Bluetooth® connectivity and gaming system with the included universal remote control. Easily control both the system and most video sources connected to your TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this about two weeks ago. It was difficult for me to understand voices using the tv speakers and the sound quality was not that good. I connected the optical cable directly into our Spectrum cable box. This gives me the option to use the tv speakers or the Bose Solo 5. The quality of the sound from the Solo 5 was great. Being able to switch between the tv and Solo 5 I was able to really tell the sound quality of the Solo 5. Then I pressed the dialogue mode button and I could understand what people are saying in the shows. To check the sound volume, I ran the volume up to a point it could be heard on the other end of the house (my wife asked me if I went deaf) and I still had more to go. Bass sound is as it should be in this type of system. If you want bass that shakes the wall and floor buy a surround sound system. The Solo 5 fits great under our 55" smart tv. I have it attached to the bottom of the wall mounted tv using indoor/outdoor Velcro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS THE SOUND BAR YOU WANT I bought my first Bose surround system almost 25 years ago and was hooked ever since. It’s true sound can’t be beat! I purchased a Bose Lifestyle 600 home entertainment system for the family room 7 years ago. It’s the definition of home theatre surround sound- truly the gold standard! I also have the Bose wave radio with built in CD, the Bose soundlink (which we use everywhere- home, work, pool, patio, lawn, on vacation, you name it), a 10 speaker Bose in our SUV, and just last week I purchased the Bose Solo 5 TV sound system. This is the only review I have ever written but felt compelled to so I could address negative reviews about this sound bar not being loud enough or not having much bass. Then I thought to myself- wait a minute- this is a Bose. It has to be good! I bought it from Bose and received it the next day. Set up was simple, the universal remote is ridiculously easy to program your TV, Blu-Ray, Satellite box, etc. By chance the first sound I heard came from the Batman vs Superman movie that was on TV and I was blown away! It was exactly what I needed for the master bedroom. It really makes a world of difference and I would recommend this to anyone. There is one caveat, however, and that is it all depends on what you really want for your room. If you want a lot of bass then the SoundTouch 300 soundbar with the Bose bass module would be what you want but it’s a lot more money of course. So if you want to add great sound to your bedroom TV for a great price, look no further. Also, listening to music from your phone via Bluetooth is a big bonus.
