They're Great! What Can I Say?

 

Great! What Can I Say?!

BOSE, Great Sound, Great Deal

If You Set Them Up In The Up-And-Down Position, You Don't Get Surround Sound, But This Doesn't Apply To Me

Consumer review by:

Great Bose quality and value in a great package

 

For $250, these Bose speakers are what I expect in a Bose Product. Another happy customer.

These speakers have excellent sound even without using EQ settings on the receiver

Without using the EQ setting on the receiver, the Bass did seem slightly weak, but they have excellent Bass and Treble with EQ settings on

Consumer review by:

NO BASS WHATSOEVER!!!!

 

Go with the 251 if you don't mind the wierd, huge profile. At least it has the body you'd expect from a good speaker.

very stylish with a sleek design that cleanly dispurses the audio

Has no body, no balls and no base. Sounds like your old clock radio speaker without any dimension

Other than needing external wiring (by electrician), this system provides great outdoor sound options. It sounds terrific if you are entertaining for many or one. Very durable and water-proof. While costs are more, name and durability to the elements...

Great outdoor sound, clean lines, color options, dependability and durability

Cost

Just about the you can get for outdoors

 

I purchased these speakers without even listening to the in the store. Bose works and sounds a hundred times better with proper placement. Placement with most Bose products is crucial, and will greatly affect their sound. The store had them 2"s away...

Very durable build quality, impressive sound, wide coverage

slightly more bass would be good, but thats why theres the 251

No bass!

 

Construction. Bracket. Appearance. Size

Sound is tinny and thin. Very little bass. (With 3 two inch drivers, how could there be?) There's more bass in the BOSE Wave radio

Bose Bose 151 SE White Pair Outdoor Speakers Outdoor Speakers

 

I purchased these speakers to use in a three season room. They blend in nicely with the white siding on my house and were easy to mount and hook up (I am using these as extension speakers from my Pioneer receiver). As you would expect from a Bose...

Speakers sound great, mounting hardware included and simple to use, pure white color belnds in with exterior siding

For best sound these speakers have to be mounted horizontally - this could limit mounting options

I bought these for a screened in porch that we just finished building. The room won't get a lot of direct weather, but it will see pretty high humidity. I love these speakers. The room sounds great, whether we have the glass or screens in the windows....

Easy to installSound greatAesthetically pleasing in a very visible location

Expensive

Consumer review by:

A pleasant surprise...

 

I needed a pair of small yet full functioning speakers to be mounted on the wall in a 12 x 14 room. Space is at a premium and larger speakers are just not a reasonable choice. I decided to try the Bose 151-SE pair knowing that JR is good about returns....

Attractive Design","Easy to Mount","Great Sound Quality
