Bose® Companion® 2 Series III multimedia speaker system
Our take on the Bose® Companion® 2 Series III multimedia speaker system by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Step up to Bose® sound and hear what you're missing
Looking for better sound from your favorite music files, videos and games? The Bose® Companion® 2 Series III multimedia speaker system will add depth and clarity to your computer audio sources without taking over your desk. You'll enjoy engaging sound and still have room to get your work done.
Bose's TrueSpace® signal processing is the key — it creates a broad soundstage from speakers spaced no further apart than the width of your computer monitor or laptop. You'll hear improved warmth and detail from your MP3s and streaming audio, and added punch from your computer games and DVDs. Two sets of audio inputs let you hook up an additional source, like a portable MP3 player, without having to disconnect the speakers from your computer. A handy front-panel headphone jack makes private headphone listening easy for those times when you don't wish to disturb others.

Needed speakers to attach to my Amazon Fire Tablet, which I am using in Show Mode. They needed to be small and wired. These do the trick. The sound is pretty good, and the setup was easy.

Powered Computer Speakers: The Bose Companion 2 is a two-piece computer speaker system (Left & Right speakers) that reproduces full, natural sound at your computer. The Bose Companion 2 will dramatically improve the audio from your computer, while its sleek, space-saving design complements your computer environment.
TrueSpace Technology: The Bose Companion 2 speaker system features TrueSpace stereo signal processing circuitry. This proprietary technology helps maximize audio performance by widening the image of closely placed speakers, making the audio seem to come from a soundstage wider than the two speakers.
Ported Cabinets: Each speaker features a rear-panel 3/4" diameter port to provide clearer, deeper bass from a small enclosure.
Automatic Tone Adjustment: The Companion 2 speakers automatically adjusts the tonal balance to give you rich audio performance at practically any listening level.
Dual Inputs: The Bose Companion 2 has two 3.5mm aux inputs. These dual analog inputs allow you keep the speakers hooked up to your computer, while you use the second input to hook up another source, such as a portable audio device. The dual 3.5mm aux inputs are located on the back of the same speaker. One 46" stereo audio minijack cable is included.
Headphone Jack: The right speaker is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm headphone output; the speakers are muted when headphones are plugged in.
Tethered Speaker Connection: The left speaker features an attached 6' audio cable with a proprietary connector which plugs into the rear-panel proprietary port on back of the rear speaker (labeled "To Left Speaker").
Volume Control: The volume control is conveniently located on the front of the right speaker, giving you easy access. On your computer or an optional sound source, set the volume at about two-thirds the maximum volume. Then use the knob on the right speaker to adjust the volume as you listen.
Angled Design + Magnetically Shielded: The angled design of these speakers allows them to direct sound upward toward a seated listener. So placing them on a desktop is a good choice. Magnetic shielding protects your computer monitor from interference when the speakers are positioned close to it.
AC Power Supply: The Bose Companion 2 operates off of standard household AC current using the supplied AC power adapter. The AC power adapter plugs into the back of the right speaker.
- Input: 100-240V ~ 50/60Hz, 600mA
