Wonderful if....

 

I see a bunch of comments here about no bass. Okay, they're little 2.5" drivers. Here's how to fix it (for $50 in my case):

Pleasing mids, and pleasantly tapered highs

Nothing that can't be fixed

Great Speakers to replace stock computers speakers

 

These are a great pair of speakers. I have a Creaitve Gigaworks s750 and used to have a logitech z-680. I use these on both system to replace the two front speakers because as everyone knows computer speakers dont exactly have the best sound. But after...

Absolutely wonderful sound, very small. sleek and stylish

A bit Heavy. Sit on flat surfaces awkwardly

Great Sound in a Small Package

 

This is a great speaker system for smaller rooms. The bass isn\'t overpowering - which is fine in a smaller environment. I use these speakers to listen to Classical Music and Vocal CDs and to watch TV. I wouldn\'t recommend these for a "Home Theater,"...

Sounds Fantastic!

 

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.

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.
