      Are Bose Products worth buying?

      Hi All,
      I do have BOSE Home theater speakers at home and i felt they are pretty good.I thought how about BOSE sound in my car. And I heard bose speakers were great in car Audios than home audio ,as small size gives better sound stage. I was searching for BOSE speakers it would be available anywhere. Unfortunately its not available anywhere even with BOSE showrooms. And recenlty got one deal from one of the member in classifieds regarding BOSE speakers sale. It is a BOSE OEM car audio used in the AUDI cars.
      As I am impressed with the sound at home, I am willing to buy this. But, I am not 100% sure it will do its best with my head unit and with my AMP , since in the audi car it comes with BOSE head unit.
      I have Kenwood HU and Rockfordfosgate Amplifier.
      Currently i have only rear speakers, and wanted to fill my front with these speakers.
      Please suggest me whether i can go ahead.

      Not really sure but I've heard some of the car audio products of Bose are badge engineered stuff. A friend of mine who is into Car audio in the US opened up the Bose speakers in another friends Chevy Tahoe and realized they are actually arc audio speakers. Not really sure if it so.

      Mate be it home or car. I would never recommened bose. Its far most cheap speaker sold at exhorbitant marku. Speakers are made in mexico with a very small magnet frame. It obly sounds good cos sound is un natural out of proprietory filters n processing.
      Go for natural sound. For sme good speskers like focal rainbow morel dynaudio lse micro precision.

      There's already aforum in gearheads...I was talking about it exactly..

      Bose Speakers from Audi

      The seller seems to be genuine, he's saying he will take the speakers back if it doesn't fit tt i dont like it completely. And he's telling you wont do that as the speakers were brilliant.
      Its priced about 10k.

      Guy is fraud..claiming mercs use BOSE !! and ROYCE TOO@!! Gees...Aventgarde is the Merc c220 supplier. Far ahead than BOSE can be. As vineeth said, guy looks decieving I would not recommened such purchase. Better for 10k you can get good RF speakers or FOCAL and they will be far better than BOSE.

      Dr Amar Bose's creations are never cheap. So a Bose or a B & O cannot be justified on the VFM factor. They will have a certain snob value, and may well be nearly indestructible.

      Bose produces a range of speakers and audio products for automotive use. Different Bose audio systems are available in vehicles from brands such as Buick, Holden, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Acura, Hummer, Pontiac, Saab, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Ferrari, Lancia, Maserati, Maybach, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Renault, Nissan, Infiniti and Mazda. Bose currently does not offer its car audio products on an aftermarket basis in order to ensure proper integration and appropriate in-cabin acoustic adaptation.

      Need to pay special attention to the last part of the quote.

      There are some infamous quotes on Bose:

      "No highs, No lows, Must be Bose."
      "Bose: Better sound through Marketing"
      "Bose - Buy Other Sound Equipment"

      And before anyone jumps on me, I personally own a Bose system but I can confirm that I've heard "better" and "original" sounding systems at far less prices.
