Science vs Marketing

I've been trying to educate people about just how bad Bose speaker systems are since I owned a set and was tremendously disappointed with the terrible performance. Bose, for obvious reasons, doesn't post any specs about their speakers so it's hard to argue based on measurements and technical details. I recently stumbled across a very good writeup (with measurements) that covers it.

Bose - Better Profit Margins Through Shortcuts is a must-read if the thought of buying a Bose system has ever crossed your mind, even for as long as a tenth of a second.
