Overview

A classic bookshelf speaker

Bring clear, spacious sound to your music with these classic and versatile bookshelf speakers. They can fit comfortably on a shelf or in an entertainment center, yet use proprietary Bose technologies to convey much of the power of a live performance.

  • Component speakers that connect to a stereo receiver
  • Stereo Targeting® tweeters (2”) and one rear-firing tweeter (2”) combine for balanced stereo sound over a wide area
  • Long-excursion woofer (8") delivers clean, powerful low notes

In a live performance, music reaches your ears, and your emotions, through a blend of direct and reflected sound. Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology recreates this combination to deliver spacious sound similar to what you'd experience in a concert hall.

Unlike many conventional speakers that focus stereo effects in a prominent sweet spot, Bose 301 stereo speakers provide Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance. Proprietary technologies built into these bookshelf speakers let you enjoy balanced stereo sound almost anywhere in the room, not just in one “sweet spot.”

Features

  • Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology blends reflected and direct sound to re-create much of a live concert's natural spaciousness.
  • Flared slot port design engineered to reduce air turbulence. Woofer and port geometry complement each other so you can enjoy cleaner and deeper performance in the lower frequencies, particularly at high volumes.
  • Stereo Targeting® tweeters use precisely angled, 2" proprietary drivers to deliver balanced stereo sound, so you can experience lifelike spaciousness throughout the listening area.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • One rear-firing tweeter (2") propels sound from the back and the side of the speaker. Enjoy a balance of reflected and direct sound for a spacious, natural experience much like a live performance.
  • Spatial Dispersion™ speaker lens creates a smoother high frequency spatial response and wider distribution of sound.
  • Long-excursion woofer (8") delivers clean, powerful low frequencies and balanced sound throughout your room.
  • Compact bookshelf design blends into your décor. Use these speakers for music, or movie sound—they can be used as main, secondary or surround home theater speakers.
  • Automatic protection circuitry prevents drivers from being overdriven and provides increased reliability while minimizing interference with the listening experience.
  • Syncom® computer tested to ensure one of the highest levels of quality and reliability in the audio industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proven Cost effective after 25 years of abuse I have a pair of 301 and 201 hooked to a 200 watt amp for almost 25 years and they still kick and are distortion free. I put these speakers through some real punishment continues high volume ,dusty garage conditions , had them fall many times on to the garage floor , had them fall onto my car hood , did damage to the hood but the speakers never missed a note, had wires crossed with the powered sub , no damage done, took them up state and out of state over the years to MC parties still no issues , My kids poked the center cone inward with a stick no problems , I have abused these speakers to no end all that punishment without covers, I am only now looking to replace them do the foam desenagrating. even that and they still sound good after a lot of music including every AC/DC album about 30 to 40 times each and then some. I have been using them in a unheated garage in NE Penn. year round since new I have retired a few amps over the years but the speakers stay the same. For this product I can truly say my money was well spent
