Bose CineMate 15 is a product designed to enjoy home theater with the utmost simplicity. All you need is a flat screen TV. It consists of a sound bar with a subwoofer , plus a remote control. This self-powered speaker system allows you to improve the sound of your television without having to complicate your life with complex installations. The subwoofer connects to the soundbarby means of the cable welded to the bar at one of its ends. The subwoofer connects to a power socket. Afterwards, the audio input connections are made from the television, from a game console or from a DVD player, for example. In the lower right corner of the bar there is an indicator light that shows the status of the assembly.
The sound bar can be placed in front of the television without blocking the view, because it is only 7 centimeters high. It is also quite narrow (it measures just over a foot), so it can be combined with medium-size televisions. The subwoofer is active and includes the amplification module; it also includes a bass port on the front. At its rear it has a wheel to adjust the level of low frequencies. The bar incorporates two speakers in the center and another two located each one on one side . With that four-speaker setup and thanks to Bose TrueSpace signal processing, the computer can deliver surround sound, complete with the Acoustimass subwoofer . Thus, viewers can immerse themselves in the action of the films without leaving the living room of their own home.
The system detects whether the source is a movie or a piece of music, to tonally adjust the sound automatically. At the rear of the Bose CineMate 15 soundbar is the patch panel with one optical digital audio input , one coaxial digital audio input, and one stereo audio input.. For best results, the manufacturer recommends placing the sound bar equidistant between the two walls of the living room and right in front of the TV, rather than on a shelf. It is also not a good idea to mount it on the wall. Also, it is convenient to place the subwoofer directly on the floor on the same wall as the television and the sound bar, where there is a plug nearby. The brand sells as an additional accessory an audio cable extension to communicate the bar with the subwoofer with a length of three meters.
The remote control is universal , so it can be used to control equipment other than the CineMate 15 , such as televisions, VCRs, or Blu-ray or DVD players. The bar weighs 1.3 kilos and measures 85 by 305 and by 70 millimeters. The dimensions of the subwoofer are 367 by 222 by 485 millimeters; and its weight reaches 10.6 kilos. It is possible to find the Bose CineMate 15 in stores in our country at a retail price of 650 euros.
