Speakers that have you covered
With conventional outside speakers, stereo sound can be heard in only a few "sweet spots" and not throughout the broader range of your patio, pool or yard. And they often can't reproduce the low frequencies that provide impact.
But innovative Bose 251 speakers use an Articulated Array® speaker design to produce an extremely wide sound field. Each outside speaker cabinet houses two speakers set at precise angles so you experience consistent stereo effects as you move around outdoors. And the unique multi-chambered design of the Bose 251 exterior speaker cabinet minimizes audible distortion from low frequencies, for sound with clear, natural impact.
Bose outdoor speakers are designed for harsh conditions. These weather resistant speakers are engineered and tested to withstand snow, rain, salt and temperature extremes of 140° F to -22° F. They are also protected by a five-year limited warranty.
Bring Lifestyle® system performance outdoors
If you own a Lifestyle® system, simply add the 251 environmental speakers/SA-3 amplifier package to bring Lifestyle® system performance outdoors. Experience a patio speaker that brings music to the pool, the deck or wherever you like to listen outside, even while the same Lifestyle® system plays different music or movies indoors.
Articulated Array® speaker design includes precisely positioned drivers to provide a large, consistent sound field for outdoor listening.
Bose environmental testing simulates exposure to sunlight, rain, heat, ice, salt and water—proof of the extreme conditions these outdoor speakers can endure and still deliver reliable, long-lasting performance.
Multi-chambered enclosure is uniquely structured to minimize audible distortion from low frequencies. You can enjoy clear, natural sound from an outside speaker enclosure that easily mounts to walls in your deck, garden or pool area.
One woofer (5.25") in a proprietary multichambered enclosure produces deep, full low frequencies, with minimal audio distortion.
Twiddler® drivers (2.5") with glass composite cone and silky light surround deliver clear, high frequencies from a speaker that resists deterioration under extreme conditions.
Two full-range drivers (2.5") positioned in an Articulated Array® speaker design provide consistent, lifelike sound over a large listening area.
Mineral and glass-filled polypropylene cabinet provides added durability against extreme conditions.
Woofers (5.25") with polymer fiber composite cone and butyl rubber surround deliver high quality sound from a speaker that resists deterioration under extreme conditions.
