I got the Bose system and it's ok, but don't expect to wake up your neighbors with it. It has really clear sound, the bass isn't real strong but ok for not having a subwoofer. It also doesn't get quite as loud as I'd like but I like my music really loud. Basically, if you're looking for quality, this is for you. If you're looking for power, I'd look into an alternative (if there are any).
