I noticed on the 2003 MADP that I am looking at the Bose 3-2-1 is optional (?) for the model 4097. Not sure why the just didn't add the usual surround sound home theater system to the unit. Is there something special about the 3-2-1. With the 2 speakers mounted to the wall above the front seats it just seems out of place.

Does this system work as good or better?

Got the 1-3-2(3 speakers up front) now had just two speaker system previously. Unless you are really into the audio (HDTV/DVD/CD,etc.) not much difference from surround sound. We quite often turn off the 132 when watching TVs as it can become overbearing(and our hearing is going-too many "Dead" concerts).

The Bose3-2-1 was a unit I was thinking of purchasing whan I was going to upgrade to a DVD sys have heard in a home and at Sams. Got the 5.1 sys Sony which I have in present coach and had same one in a MA. The 5.1 gives you a more directional effect than Bose and was cheeper than Bose. I do have the Bose 5.1 at home and it does not compare with the Sony in MH.
You could save some money from option and put in the top notch Bose 1000. http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/nod.gif

I don't want to get into a debate in a "opinions rule" area, but in the professional audio world Bose just does not exist (despite many tries to enter) because it just isn't really very good. They are known for altering the signal to "trick" the listner into thinking it sounds good...at least for a short duration, or to non-critical listeners. Two very common phrases: "No highs, no lows, its Bose", and the very true (IMO) "Better sound through marketing". Nobody in audio spends on advertising like Bose. Not even close. There's a reason.

Buy what sounds good to you...don't just pay a lot for a nameplate.
