    I too have used the Bose Companion and they do sound good but for me just not enough power output. My shack is 24 x 12 with vaulted ceiling so had my Bose 301 going through an amp but then ended up with the JBL Control 2P 35w powered speakers, they sound great and have a little headroom which is always nice to have.

    I replaced my older 2.1 computer speakers with the Bose Companion series 3 upon recommendation by Flexradio and they sound remarkable to me.  Several other speakers or amp combos had problems with tx rf getting into them but the Bose does not even at legal limit power.  I love the rich tone on broadcast stations also.  Flex radios have remarkable audio on rx and ssb or am tx also.  Last night some guys were discussing the receivers on their radios and one commented his was the best he ever heard and ALMOST AS GOOD AS A FLEX!  Seems Flex has set a standard for audio quality that superhet radios cannot match.  Non Flesx owners have a hard time understanding direct conversion with no if stages and brick wall filtering.  If anyone bleeds over on a Flex they are splattering!

    It all depends on your hearing range...
    You can buy the best speaker system available but if the speakers is not in the range of your ears; what is it worth?

    I've been interested in this speaker, but need to know if there are any CW audio frequency resonances, that most speakers exhibit.

    I love my Bose Companion 2 Series 3 speakers so much that I added a second pair configured below.
    I have the Flex configured Aural.
    I have a little hearing issue and find this easy on the ears and avoid headphones unless absolutely needed to copy that weak one.  Happy camper here.

    I connected the Flex 6300 line out to a STERIO 1/8" "Y" connector, each sterio output is connected to the 1st Line In of each speaker pair.

    The 2nd input to the left bank of speakers is connected to the Flex computer's line out.
    The 2nd input of the right bank is connected to the line out of another computer (music/ball games, etc).  Oddly, I am not experiencing any RF ingress issues here.
    Let me mention though that I added ferrite to each audio input and output, I subscribe to the book of Jim Brown K9YC, ferrite is your friend my friend.
