The VideoWave® II entertainment system is the only HDTV with a complete Bose® home cinema and music system built inside. Movies grab hold of you with awe-inspiring sound and exhilarating effects. Music takes on a newfound spaciousness that will also delight you. Exclusive Bose technologies make it all happen with no speakers, subwoofer or wires in sight. If you’re looking for a new HDTV, home cinema or music system, you simply have to hear the VideoWave® II system.
A car races left to right. A storm ominously gathers strength around you. The VideoWave® II system delivers sound well beyond the screen. It captivates you the first time you hear it … and every time thereafter.
Exclusive PhaseGuide™ technology combines with a unique seven-element speaker array and advanced digital signal processing for convincing cinematic effects. Six high-performance woofers and a proprietary acoustic waveguide reproduce resounding bass for even more realism.
Whatever you like to watch, you’ll love to see it on the VideoWave® II system. It delivers a stunning picture on an LED 1080p HD screen. And with a 100Hz refresh rate, action sequences are displayed in smooth fashion. The video quality is evident, with the most natural picture possible ensured by a meticulous—and unequaled—screen calibration process. And it’s all in one elegant package, with a hand-finished aluminum frame.
The VideoWave® II system simplifies home entertainment by putting everything in one place, with no need to change the aesthetics of your room. The innovative built-in sound technologies mean there are no speakers to wire and position. And the simplicity doesn’t stop there:
Controlling a home entertainment system has never been this graceful—or simple. Its few buttons control the most basic viewing functions: power, volume, source/channel switching. Everything else is as easy as touch, glide, click.
Want to scroll through your cable programming guide or easily access your DVR menus? Just touch the pad with your thumb, glide around and click to make a selection. The functions of your connected devices are displayed right on the HD screen, unobtrusively framing whatever you're already watching.
The Unify® intelligent integration system guides you through the initial process of setting up and configuring your system. It helps you choose the right cables and inputs, and programs the click pad remote to operate your connected devices. After completing the initial setup, you can use the Unify system at any time to change your system setup and configuration.
Your room is unique, with size, shape, textures and other elements that can affect the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQi® audio calibration system overcomes these acoustic challenges so you don’t have to change a thing. This proprietary technology first analyses your room, then adjusts the VideoWave II system for a consistent, high-quality performance.
You can expect the highest level of Bose customer service through every step of your purchase, from the moment you walk through our door to installation – and beyond.

Devices like Roku, AppleTV and other digital media servers can be seamlessly integrated with the VideoWave® entertainment system like all other audio and video devices.
How can I be sure the system will perform at home as well as it did during the in-store demonstration?
Each VideoWave® system undergoes a meticulous calibration process to ensure the HD display is consistent across all units. So the performance you see in the store – or at a friend’s home – is the same performance you’ll enjoy in your home.
Do I need a subwoofer to complement the system?
No, all the acoustics—including bass performance—are built into the back of the display.
