Product Overview↑ Back to Top

Bose®
Bose® 161™ speakers offer outstanding performance in a design that blends into your décor. Their Articulated Array® speaker design reproduces sound over a larger area. Bose Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance lets you hear rich stereo sound almost anywhere in the room, instead of one small "sweet spot" as with conventional speakers. Using two proprietary Twiddler™ drivers in each enclosure, 161 speakers deliver the kind of performance you might expect from much larger speakers. And with their slim elegant design, 161 speakers can be used as part of a stereo system or home theater system. They even include customized brackets for easy installation. Bose 161 speakers. Worth seeing. Worth hearing.

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.
