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.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speakers I've had my 301s for 22 years. They still sound great. I use them outside when the wife and kids are gone and they sound as good at 100 yards as at 10 feet. I've forgotten to bring them in a few times, so they've been snowed on, rained on, dewed on and frozen, with no effect. Still waiting for the right time to get a pair of 901 speakers, but I need a larger house for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome speakers! I recently bought these to replace a pair of 13 year old bookshelf speakers that came with my home theater system. I've always been amazed at other Bose products that I have known other people to have. These continue to blow me away. I'm using them without a sub, and they really rock. The lows, mids, and highs are all very impressive. I especially love the spacious sound field. You cannot go wrong with these.
