Bose Lifestyle 18 DVD Home Theater System

Lifestyle® 18 home entertainment system

* A complete 5-speaker DVD surround sound system for smaller rooms
* Single cube speakers
* DVD/CD player with AM/FM tuner
* Customized audio performance for your room
* Optional accessory available for HDMI connectivity

The Lifestyle® 18 Series III DVD home entertainment system uses five Virtually Invisible® speakers - each only 3" high - for 5.1-channel sound in smaller rooms. And, with our proprietary ADAPTiQ® system, that sound is automatically customized to your room's acoustics. The sleek media center features a progressive scan DVD/CD player that's easily controlled by our universal remote to put a world of entertainment at your fingertips.

The single cube speakers rival the performance of many larger speakers. They partner with the Acoustimass® module, which delivers low frequency effects for all channels. Hide the module out of sight, and all the sound appears to come from the cube speakers. What's more, Videostage® 5 decoding circuitry brings surround sound performance to practically everything you watch, including programs recorded before surround sound.

Surround sound customized to your room

Every home has unique features that affect sound performance. The ADAPTiQ audio calibration system compensates for room dimensions and other variables that can impact your listening experience. Place the speakers wherever you like, and let this innovative system adjust for variations in your room. That way, you'll enjoy Bose® surround sound performance without worrying about speaker placement.

This system is also designed for expansion into many other rooms in your home, and even outdoors. With Bose® link, your Lifestyle® 18 system can seamlessly connect to compatible Bose products. So you can enjoy music throughout your home. All from one elegant system.


ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system provides greater freedom of speaker placement. It analyzes the way your room's dimensions and other variables affect sound, then automatically adjusts the sound of your Lifestyle® surround sound system to the acoustics of your room.

Bose® link whole-home audio technology lets you connect compatible Bose products to your Lifestyle® home entertainment system for listening in as many as 14 additional rooms - even outdoors.

Acoustimass module works in concert with the small speakers to deliver a fuller range of theater sound and effects. The patented Bose design produces low frequencies for all channels with no audible distortion.

Digital 5.1 decoding provides improved realism from 5.1-encoded DVDs, DBS or HDTV.

Proprietary Videostage® 5 decoding and post-processing circuitry, combined with digital 5.1 decoding and DTS®, helps deliver a high quality, five-channel surround sound experience from practically any source: DVDs, videocassettes, stereo CDs, even older mono TV shows and movies.

Digital Dynamic Range® speaker compression circuitry enables you to hear soft sounds (particularly dialogue) even at low volumes - and still appreciate the impact of loud special effects.

Control integration enables the Lifestyle® system's radio-frequency remote to operate most popular functions on other infrared-receiving equipment in your home entertainment system: TV, VCR, PVR, cable box or satellite receiver. TV sensor makes turning on your home entertainment system a one-button operation.
