The Bose Acoustimass 25 is a speaker and powered subwoofer system that connects to an audio receiver or other stereo amplification device, including the output jacks for a TV. The Acoustimass has a built-in amplifier for power, so there's no drain on the source component. Bose designed the control module with 1/4-inch connector jacks to work with standard stereo cables. The connection to a non-Bose receiver takes only seconds.
