161™ speaker system

  • Bose® sound from your stereo or home theater components
  • Performance rivaling much larger home stereo speakers
  • Versatile bookshelf speaker design
  • Custom mounting brackets included for additional placement options

Bose 161 speakers are a versatile option for both music and movie listening. These small bookshelf stereo speakers provide balanced stereo sound in a streamlined design that works with both stereo and home theater components.

These small bookshelf stereo speakers provide balanced stereo sound that rivals much larger home stereo speakers. Articulated Array® speaker design and Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance deliver quality listening almost anywhere in the room.

Performance and versatility

Bring Bose audio performance to your dorm, office or living room with Bose 161 stereo speakers. And if you prefer not to use them as bookshelf speakers, custom mounting brackets are included to increase placement options throughout your home or office.

They are also an ideal choice as home theater speakers. Use them with your existing home theater components and enjoy Bose sound from your favorite movies.

If you own a Bose® Lifestyle® system, you can use Bose 161 speakers with an SA-2 amplifier to enjoy Bose quality sound from your system in another room in your home. You can even have music in one room, while the kids enjoy movies in another, at the same time, from the same system.

Bose Stereo Everywhere stereo speaker performance produces balanced sound over a wide area, unlike conventional home audio speakers

Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose technologies, these stereo speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional home audio speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.

Twiddler® drivers use proprietary technology to generate more air movement from a small enclosure. They deliver the kind of performance you'd expect from much larger speakers, making it possible to enjoy rich low-frequency sound from smaller speakers.

Home theater expansion capable for cinema-like sound—and a seamless home theater design—when you combine this product with a center channel speaker and any Direct/Reflecting® speaker system.

Magnetically shielded speakers allow for speaker placement in close proximity to your TV without interfering with the picture quality.
