This system is not BOSE, but for the price on woot, I HIGHLY recommend them.
Sound quality is 8/10 but I am not an audiophile.
I tested this in store before buying and was happy with the purchase. At $120, I would have been SO HAPPY
Comparing these to BOSE doesn't mean a whole lot. BOSE is crap and anyone who buys BOSE is getting severely ripped off. They don't even publish their specifications...on anything. For the price of any BOSE system, you can get something much better, with better components, from a company that publishes the specifications.
I digress. In regards to this particular audio system, as long as you're happy, that's all that matters.
The frequency range is a little limited. I can understand the lower range of 100 Hz, considering the 3.6" driver (that actually might be a little generous, especially in a cabinet like this), but it's sad that it can't reach 20kHz. They should have went with proper tweeters instead of 1.9" speakers (such a strange size). That's probably why it can only hit 10 kHz. I don't think Sony put any serious effort into this design and was probably trying to keep costs down. As a basic entry level system, this will probably suffice.
