Acoustic Wave® music system II



Our best-performing Wave® system

Our best all-in-one music system performs like a large component system costing much more—with far less complication and clutter. Advanced Bose® speaker and audio technologies deliver sound with clarity and consistency, even at loud volume levels, in larger rooms and outdoor spaces.

System packages add more playing options: music from your iPod plus Internet stations and playlists from your computer, smartphone or tablet. The Acoustic Wave music system II—one quality system for all your musical needs.

  • Proprietary waveguide speaker technology enables full-bodied sound with deep lows for more natural-sounding bass and percussion instruments
  • Powerful performance fills larger rooms and outdoor spaces with lifelike sound
  • Easy portability with the optional travel case
  • Versatility to expand your listening options with custom packages

The science behind the sound

The Acoustic Wave® music system II proves that a primary home stereo system needn't be complex or cumbersome. Acclaimed Bose® waveguide speaker technology remains at the heart of the performance, providing powerful sound from small speakers.

Advanced Bose® digital electronics fine-tune the sound for accurate music reproduction across a wide range of volume levels. Vocals sound lifelike. Instruments ring true. More nuances emerge. The overall effect is much like music in a natural, live-performance setting.

Added versatility

The Acoustic Wave® music system II plays regular and home-burned audio or MP3 CDs as well as FM/AM radio. There's a headphone jack for private listening, auxiliary inputs for your MP3 or other portable player and an easy-to-read display. System packages add even more musical options, from your smartphone, iPod®, tablet and more.

Control and convenience

A convenient infrared remote lets you control your system from across the room. The Bose® link feature lets you easily connect your Acoustic Wave® music system II to a compatible Bose® Lifestyle® system for an expanded home entertainment network.

If you're travelling, bring the music with you. An optional travel case makes it easy to enjoy your music at a picnic, BBQ or any outdoor gathering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased in 2011 and now can make it stream Seems a little hard to find on the website but If you go to the search bar for "wireless adapter" - get the SoundTouch Wireless Link adapter and it will stream this unit. Wifi/Bluetooth. My Acoustic Wave was purchased 2011, I purchased the adapter a few months ago. So happy I don't have to buy a new system to stream, just popped in the bose adapter!
