Quality Sound

By DaCoop

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 161™ Speaker System:

I have the black 161's as rear surrounds in my 5.1 system, which consists of: Pioneer Elite Receiver, Bose 201 Mains, Bose VCS10 center, Bose 161 Rear, Klipsch Synergy 10 Sub. They are seamless, sound great with movies and music, and are quality built. I have owned the whole set of Bose speakers for 10 plus years, often thought of upgrading for something " new", but there just really isn't a need to because these things just produce day after day....

Great as Ceiling Speakers for Atmos and DTS-X

By MPKID123

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 161™ Speaker System:

I bought these a few years ago for front height speakers and recently moved them onto the ceiling to use with my new receiver that has Atmos and DTS-X sound. It really spreads the ceiling sound around the room and works great.

Great for a PCaudio system

By Alvaro

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 161™ Speaker System:

I bought these speakers around two years ago for my PC. I've them powered by a 2x90W stereo reciever and coupled with a 10" subwoofer. I'm very satisfied with the sound. Good clarity and awesome stereo feel. But keep in mind that if you want powerful bass, you'll need to include a subwoofer. On a side note, this speakers are very useful in my particular application, because I was able to easily mount them on the wall with the included bracket, clearing my desk space.

Great little speakers

By peaches

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 161™ Speaker System:

I bought a pair to use as surround speakers but ended up using them as my L/R front speakers. Great size, great sound - we have a vaulted ceiling so the smaller speakers actually seem to work better than the 201/301. bought a second pair to use for surround. next upgrade will be the center speaker.

Well-balanced Versatility

By jdmccall56

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 161™ Speaker System:

I use a pair of black 161's for left and right surround speakers in our home-theater set-up. They are outstanding in this function. I needed my surrounds to be quite compact in order to sit on top of my CD shelves in the rear of the room and these fit perfectly and still deliver full bodied sound. I have them crossed over to my subs at 110 Hz. Something that I really appreciate about these speakers for surround duty is the "articulated array" design, which gives broad, even coverage without the high-frequency beaming that often occurs in more conventional speakers. On the down-side: I wish Bose made more provision for shelf placement. The speakers seem to be designed almost solely with wall-mounting in mind. The little rubber footers provided are not adequate to level the speakers on a shelf. I had to provide additional support to keep them level and solid. A little shelf stand that would allow adjustable tilt would be ideal. I can't speak from personal experience, but I suspect a well-placed pair of these would also sound very nice in a traditional stereo set-up when used with a good sub or two and crossed over appropriately.
