Overview

Overview

A sleek-looking speaker

Get a power-packed performance from a trim bookshelf design with the 201® speaker system. They’re more compact than our 301® bookshelf speakers, making them ideal for smaller rooms. Simply connect them to your stereo receiver and enjoy the best your music has to offer.

  • Component speakers that connect to a stereo receiver
  • Stereo Targeting® tweeters (6.4 cm) use precisely angled drivers for balanced stereo sound and lifelike spaciousness
  • High-excursion woofer (16.51 cm) delivers clean, powerful low notes

201® stereo speakers use proprietary Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology to create an experience similar to a live performance, where a mix of reflected and direct sound envelops listeners.

Innovative Bose® Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology recreates this audio experience by reflecting sound off your walls and other flat surfaces. Instead of concentrating the stereo effects into a single "sweet spot," our Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance delivers full stereo sound throughout the listening area. You'll enjoy realistic, spacious performance almost anywhere in the room.

Features

  • Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology blends reflected and direct sound to re-create much of a live concert's natural spaciousness.
  • Stereo Targeting® tweeters use precisely angled, 6.4 cm proprietary drivers to deliver balanced stereo sound, so you can experience lifelike spaciousness throughout the listening area.
  • Home cinema expansion capable for cinema-like sound—and a seamless home cinema design—when you combine this product with a centre channel speaker and any Direct/Reflecting® speaker system.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose® technologies, these speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.
  • Spatial Dispersion™ speaker lens creates a smoother high frequency spatial response and wider distribution of sound.
  • High-excursion woofer (16.51 cm) delivers clear, rich low frequencies and balanced sound throughout your room.
  • Compact bookshelf design blends into your décor. Use these speakers for music, or film sound—they can be used as main, secondary or surround home cinema speakers.
  • Automatic protection circuitry prevents drivers from being over driven and provides increased reliability while minimising interference with the listening experience.
  • Syncom® computer tested to ensure one of the highest levels of quality and reliability in the audio industry.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I drive a Bose and nothing else. Period! Im 42 and recieved my 201s when I was 16. Through Hendrix, Dre, Maiden, disco, Daft Punk, Mozart, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman and all the sweet sounds in between they have given me a sanctuary of sound, pure to the core. From the first day to today and sure beyond. My Bose 201s have never left me without but only wonder. Multiple moves, many parties and a house fire. In my opinion when you stand in front of one speaker and can hear the notes and tones from the other; you have quality sound. I live by Bose, only Bose. Of course I have a set of 301s and someday get the holy grail 901s. Bry.L

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose is still the best I've had a pair of 201's for several years now. You will not find a better speaker for twice the price.
