Bought these speakers to install in my computer room, which is in another room from my stereo system. They were very easy to install and they sound absolutely fantastic! Would definitely reccommend this item to anyone.

They're Bose, 'nuff said

 

We are using the Bose speakers in a hall for lectures and meetings. They provide great 'fill' sound to supplement the person speaking. They are also small and blend into the room decor so well that most people don't even know that we are using them.

Great once paired with a Sub

 

For you audiophiles out there consider this budget friendly speaker set! The nuances of your music can trully be heard but the key to success is pairing these with a good amp and a good sub. I used my Sonos connect amp and bought a Polk sub to round...

Product Specifications

Bose 161 speakers offer outstanding performance in a design that blends into your decor. Engineered to reproduce sound over a large area, they bring you spacious stereo almost anywhere in the room - with a fullness and impact you might expect from much larger speakers. And all that performance from a slim, elegant design means 161 speakers work equally well in a music or surround sound system. They even include customized brackets for easy installation. Bose 161 speakers: worth seeing, worth hearing. They grace your room with smart, sculpted elegance. They fill your room with crisp, full sound. You can't help but notice Bose 161 speakers - for their looks and their performance. An Articulated Array speaker design features two 2 1 /2" Twiddler drivers that are angled to reproduce lifelike stereo over a larger listening area - instead of one small "sweet spot". These high-excursion drivers generate more air movement from a small enclosure, resulting in high performance from a small, easy to place speaker. Another feature you'll notice about Bose 161 speakers is their versatility. Their compact size and full-range sound make them suitable for both music and home theater listening. In fact, Bose 161 speakers have been engineered to work with the Bose VCS-10 center channel speaker and other Bose Direct/Reflecting speakers to provide a high-performance surround sound solution. And custom brackets included with 161 speakers make them easy to mount wherever you wish to place them. In any room, for any situation, these speakers sound as good as they look.
