    Bose Jewel Surround speakers (the little ones)
    Denon AVR 4306
    NO SUB???

    Advice please.
    I am looking to buy a sub to complete my home cinema system.
    I don't want to buy the Bose lifestyle acoustimass because it is the size of a boat!!.
    Are there any small subs I could consider + are there any features I have to ensure that I get?
    HELP

    I think that the bose woofers are designed to go with the speakers, in that the crossover etc is inbuilt into the sub. It would be worth checking that you can actually use another sub...

    Because of their size it is likely the sats don't go very low so the sub would need to go very high and most decent subwoofers don't.

    Try and get some feedback from Bose owners if you can.

    I have an older 2.1 Acoustimass setup and I am pretty sure you can't use the speakers with a seperate amp individually like you are proposing.

    It seems a shame you have such a great amp and you want to use the bose for speakers, they are very small but you can get a lot better performance for the same money, although probably larger in size.

    Mission M-Cubes for example, but even those won't do your amp justice. Just my opinion of course :)

    With a 4306, the Miller & Kreisel Xenons should be the sort of level being aimed for...just the right sort of amp to get them kicking some serious butt as well :)
