First, let me clarify that I don't know anything about sound systems or speakers. It's not really my thing. But when the internal speakers in my flatscreen television started going out, I quickly realized it would be significantly cheaper to buy external speakers than to replace the TV. Boy am I glad I did! The Bose 3-2-1 GSX Home Theater System didn't just do the job of replacing speakers, it makes watching movies at home feel like the movie theaters. Amazing. The sound quality is fantastic. Clear as a bell. And you can physically feel the sound when the bass is going strong. It was extremely easy to install too, and I'm one of the least technology-familiar people ever so that really says a lot. I was actually shocked at how quickly I managed to set it up without help. Honestly, I wish I'd bought the Bose 3-2-1 GSX Home Theater System years ago.
