Bose Wave Music System IV

The Bose Wave® Music System IV provides an elegant way to bring high quality sound into any room.
Over fourteen years of research by Bose Corporation brings you the benefits of award-winning proprietary acoustic waveguide speaker technology. Using this technology, a tube efficiently transfers energy from a small speaker to the outside air over a wide range of low frequencies. And, long waveguides, folded into intricate patterns, fit into products small enough to be placed comfortably in your home. The Bose Wave® Music System IV features dual tapered waveguide speaker technology, connecting two speakers to two 26″ tapered waveguides which combine to deliver performance well beyond the size of the system.
