Everything you need is included – no tools required! Included in the app: • Launch Prep: Experiment with a magnet and electromagnet. • Coil Launcher: Boost the power to launch your coil up into the air. • Make Some Noise: Find out how you can make sound with just a magnet and a coil of wire. • SoundWave Studio: Experiment with frequency and waveforms to make different sounds. • Build a Paper Speaker: Make a working speaker with paper, scissors, and tape. • Music Player: Play your favorite music right in the app. • Speaker Cube: Build a sealed acoustic enclosure for your speaker. • Sound Sweeper: Play a song and use the Sound Sweeper to emphasize different parts of the music. • Speaker Tuning: Use an equalizer to adjust the sound of your speaker. • Bose Tuning: Hear the difference Bose Tuning makes. • Custom Colors: Customize your speaker cube by mixing red, green, and blue to make a rainbow of colors. • Dancing Colors: Play some tunes and watch your speaker light up and dance to the beat. • Custom Covers: Customize your cube with patterns of light and shadow.

The kids build these cool things and gain positive association with your brand, then you let them down! We had the problem as many others here. It was a great project for my sons to build and experiment with the speaker. But now they are learning an unfortunate lesson about planned obsolescence...and it just isn’t right. Please patch this so we can continue to use our speakers after the original Apple device with this app is replaced.
Bose Cube
by Jake Farmer 12345 on 2020/03/22 17:04
I built my cube about 2 years ago and found it in my room the other day. I went to redownload the app for this device. There was the feature where you could change the lighting inside the speaker. When I redownloaded the app, it would not let me control the lighting instead it wanted me to build the entire speaker again. I already have to speaker built. Bose please let us control the lighting!!

I hate the app at the moment it lost all information and is telling me to start the steps all over again when I just want to listen to music so if you are look at getting this speaker don’t just get a Bluetooth
Really nicely done

This is the best educational kit I've ever used. Nicely done.

My 8 year old and I worked on this project together; this App worked perfectly. Fun to see the experiment with the paper speaker first along with the instructions along the way. Nicely put together and well thought out! Reminded me of Nintendo Labo except this has a pretty cool speaker that works pretty well.
Poor app

App closes out automatically so can’t use to build the speaker
Yay!!!

This app totally freezes on my iPhone X. The only way to get out of the app and return to my home screen is to totally power off. I tried to contact customer service but received no response.

The same thing happened to me that happened to “VantasChild”, it was working perfectly until the iPad until I was using broke. I tried to use it on my new phone but it was impossible to complete the second step because I had already put together my speaker. It still allows me to play music, but I would also enjoy having her ability to tune it too. Thanks
Ok...

App doesn’t work
by Juppa789 on 2018/02/24 16:12
I was able to connect through Bluetooth and play music but the app doesent work which was one of the whole purposes of getting this. Please let me know otherwise this is worthless
I like it but
by VantasChild on 2018/01/01 20:11
I went through the tutorial and built my speaker using a phone that I don’t have anymore. When I still was using said phone I enjoyed using the app with my speaker(especially tuning it) but I soon lost what I had saved on the app when my phone died due to water damage, so here I am with a new phone and downloading this app in anticipation to tune my speaker aaaand I couldn’t get past the second part of the tutorial because it wanted me to go through the steps of building it all over again! I was really upset with this and although I don’t need the app to use the speaker I feel like being able to tune it and change the LED sequence were really nice features, so Bose I’m begging you please make it so that I don’t have to go through the tutorial all over again for something I already built!
Great project but in need of a software update
by Fm540i on 2017/07/25 14:36
My daughter loved this project but when it reset itself after she finished building it we're faced with starting over to gain full functionality. Last update was what a year ago, come on Bose
Nice speaker build tutorial

This is a companion app for a BoseBuild speaker which is an amazing kit for anyone who would like to understand the basics of speaker design. It has room for improvement, but overall idea is just great!
It's okay....
by PurpleStorybook (on HS) on 2017/01/23 00:04
Overall, this is a great app. However, it would be great to have a menu to just play music, instead of flipping through lessons to turn on the Bose tuning, colors, etc. The point is to learn, but also to be able to listen to music! Also, there should be an option to skip all the tutorials. I've gone through the tutorials on my iPad, but most of my music is on my phone, and I don't want to have to go through the coil tutorial etc all over again as it's actually really annoying. Please consider the suggestions and I'll see you in the next update :S

The speaker is a great build with some cool features while they work. Sadly all those functions rely on an app with a few big bugs and not the most helpful settings menu.
Great afternoon project
by Waterman(141) on 2016/07/09 21:34
Spent two hours with my granddaughter learning how speaker drivers actually work with the supplied test magnet and coil. Made a simple speaker by attaching the coil to the cardboard box and putting the magnet in the coil. Following the instruction in the app really foolproof. Moved on to building the actual cube speaker, simple assembly perfect for a grade schooler interested in how things work. Finished product is a high quality Bose speaker. A lot of fun and good learning experience.

The speaker is a great build with some cool features while they work. Sadly all those functions rely on an app with a few big bugs and not the most helpful settings menu.
Yay!!!
