The Acoustimass module from sound system manufacturer Bose is the subwoofer portion of a system with satellite speakers. It connects to a receiver and produces the low-end frequencies that can be felt as well as heard. The Acoustimass subwoofer is a large, polymer box that is placed on the floor adjacent to the television set, at least three feet away. Depending on the specifics of the sound system, the Acoustimass weighs at least 9.07 Kilogram. Bose produces several versions of the Acoustimass to correspond with various-sized sound systems, and does not recommend opening any of them on your own.
