Our best-performing Wave® system

Our best all-in-one music system performs like a large component system costing much more—with far less complication and clutter. Advanced Bose® speaker and audio technologies deliver sound with clarity and consistency, even at loud volume levels, in larger rooms and outdoor spaces.

System packages add more playing options: music from your ipod plus internet stations and playlists from your computer, smartphone or tablet. The Acoustic Wave music system II—one quality system for all your musical needs.

  • Proprietary waveguide speaker technology enables full-bodied sound with deep lows for more natural-sounding bass and percussion instruments
  • Powerful performance fills larger rooms and outdoor spaces with lifelike sound
  • Easy portability with the optional travel case
  • Versatility to expand your listening options with custom packages

The science behind the sound

The Acoustic Wave® music system II proves that a primary home stereo system needn't be complex or cumbersome. Acclaimed Bose waveguide speaker technology remains at the heart of the performance, providing powerful sound from small speakers.

Advanced Bose digital electronics fine-tune the sound for accurate music reproduction across a wide range of volume levels. Vocals sound lifelike. Instruments ring true. More nuances emerge. The overall effect is much like music in a natural, live-performance setting.

Added versatility

The Acoustic Wave® music system II plays regular and home-burned audio or MP3 CDs as well as FM/AM radio. There's a headphone jack for private listening, auxiliary inputs for your MP3 or other portable player and an easy-to-read display. System packages add even more musical options, from your smartphone, iPod, tablet and more.

Control and convenience

A convenient infrared remote lets you control your system from across the room. The Bose link feature lets you easily connect your Acoustic Wave® music system II to a compatible Bose Lifestyle® system for an expanded home entertainment network.

If you're traveling, bring the music with you. An optional travel case makes it easy to enjoy your music at a picnic, tailgating or any outdoor gathering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased in 2011 and now can make it stream Seems a little hard to find on the website but If you go to the search bar for "wireless adapter" - get the SoundTouch Wireless Link adapter and it will stream this unit. Wifi/Bluetooth. My Acoustic Wave was purchased 2011, I purchased the adapter a few months ago. So happy I don't have to buy a new system to stream, just popped in the bose adapter!
