Better Sound for Your TV, Now With Bluetooth® for Streaming Music Wirelessly

September 24, 2015 -- Today, Bose introduces the Solo 5 TV sound system, an entirely new one-piece soundbar, and the new Solo 15 series II TV sound system, an update to its best-performing pedestal TV speaker. Both are unobtrusive speakers that make TV sound dramatically better and requires just one connection from the speaker to the TV. Both include Bluetooth® connectivity for streaming your music wirelessly, and an updated, advanced remote that makes controlling the system, TV and other connected sources easier than ever.

The new Solo 15 series II system measures just 62,8 cm wide, 35,6 cm deep and 7,6 cm high, and fits under most televisions with screen sizes of up to 50 inches 127 cm (50 inches). The new Solo 5 system joins the Bose® Solo family with an even smaller footprint at just 54,8 cm wide, 8,6 cm deep and 7 cm high, and the versatility to be placed almost anywhere -- in front of the TV, on a shelf, or wall-mounted.

The new Bose Solo 15 series II system features five drivers for wide, spacious sound, including a dedicated centre center speaker to make speech and dialogue more understandable, and the new Bose Solo 5 system has two drivers. Both the Solo 15 series II and Solo 5 systems have a separate “dialogue” mode that brings words more to the forefront, digital signal processing for optimal sound at any listening level, and proprietary TrueSpace® technology that distributes audio well beyond the screen and speaker itself. And as more and more TV programming relies on dramatic soundtracks and music, the Solo 15 series II and Solo 5 systems reproduce the full-frequency range, including deep low notes you can adjust with a bass control function on the included universal remote. So whatever you’re watching -- from network programming to entertainment shows, news, concerts or sports -- you get the entire experience: amazing video and equally remarkable audio.

With built-in Bluetooth® technology, the new Solo systems can also double as a wireless music system for streaming playlists, music services, or virtually anything else from your phone or tablet. So everything you listen to through Bluetooth® headphones and portable Bluetooth® speakers can now be played through the Solo 15 series II and Solo 5 systems just as easily, but with more power and performance.
