13 years and still wonderful....

By Bargamon

Comments about Bose® 251® Environmental Speakers:

I have two pair that are in a covered outdoor room that is 16 x 20 in size. The 251's use of two tweeters angled provides a wide sound field creating a great result for outdoor use. The sound is excellent even at low volume making it easy for my guests to both enjoy it and not have to talk over the music. One pair is installed high in the corner surrounded by wood which amplifies the bass. The other pair is surrounded by just air. Where they are installed makes a big difference as my two pairs sound very different when isolated offering an obvious lesson in acoustics. I use a pair of outdoor volume switches to balance them. I previously had them in another house where one pair were installed high covering a back yard and flooded a large area with sound. These speakers can play loud if need be. My experience with them in three different locations gives me a unique perspective in recommending them and attesting to there versatility . Few outdoor speakers will provide satisfying bass but if you have a choice of where to install, using acoustic common sense can aid in improving the bass. Mounted on wood vs. brick will change the sound, in corners vs open air.....etc. This is true with all speaker installations. Speaker reviews are subjective based on personal preference and expectations. These speakers are not bass monsters and their indirect tweeter array provides a wide sound that produces little fatigue. Auditioning any outdoor speaker outside of its actual installation is nearly a useless exercise. This model has now been around at least 15 years and obviously has been a good seller for Bose. I can say over the 13 years I have owned them, these speakers are durable, versatile and lived up to expectations at the premium price.

Crisp, clear sound

By Tekfish0125

Comments about Bose® 251® Environmental Speakers:

Purchased my Bose 251 outdoor speakers to use inside a garage. They produce a sound so clear and natural you can actually hear every detail. However, they do not produce bass very well. You will need a powered subwoofer get sufficient bass.

Simply Amazing!

By joelr

Comments about Bose® 251® Environmental Speakers:

Bought these speakers 4 months ago. I have always bought bose products, so when the time came when I needed outdoor speakers, of course I looked at Bose. As I researched the 251 and came across a few negative reviews. These made me doubt a little and started researching other speakers. After a while, I came back to the Bose 251 and the Bose amplifier and finally made the purchase. I installed them with the included brackets outside my house, and downloaded the Bose app.Played some music and the moment the sound came from those speakers I asked my self how I could ever have doubted Bose. The sound is absolutely incredible. I have no idea what any reviewer could have found at fault with these speakers other than perhaps the price. What I say is you are paying for quality and that's exactly what you get. Their size is perfect. The sound and the base are crisp and rich. Everyone that comes to my house marbles at the sound that comes out of these speakers. So glad I went with my heart. Thanks Bose for another great product.

The best speakers for boats!

By Solman

Comments about Bose® 251® Environmental Speakers:

The sound from these are 251"s are amazing, I recently installed them. I plan on buying more now! My brother has these aboard his Alaskan gillnetter in ice, snow, pounding rain, sea water spray, and serious cold weather. They always sound great, and have never failed. I strongly recommend them.

Quality Sound and Durable

By Easy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® 251® Environmental Speakers:

I have had a pair of 251's on my deck mounted under the overhang of the roof for 12 years now and they still rock. They see -20 degree F up to 100 degree F temps over the course of a year. I think the trick is to minimize the direct sunlight and moisture that hits them and they will last a long long time.

Love these speakers

By gomets

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® 251® Environmental Speakers:

absolutely love my soundtouch system. 251s are loud and great quality. I was concerned that they would appear to be too big on my deck, but I was wrong. they blend in perfectly. I have it connected with an additional soundtouch speaker indoors. I mostly use the soundtouch app as I have not completely mastered the controller. definitely recommend these
