For those who think their is a lack of bass, I would like to say that i disagree. For one they are well balanced and for two you don't have to go and spend money on a sub. My stereo system has a extra bass feature that i think ... Expand full review

Fantastic Sounding Speakers!! Great Price!!

 

For speakers with a retail price under $300 I believe that the Bose 201 Series V are a sure pick. I plan to buy some Infinity Beta 40 or 50s to use as my fronts to supply more bass and I will move these to my rears. If you have ... Expand full review

Crisp Sounding Highs, Overall Great Sound, Low Price

Need a sub to supply bass

Consumer review by:

Very Acceptable for This Price Range

 

I am using these as my living room speakers. I have my bass boosted since I listen at lower volumes. I do not have a sub-woofer. I find the speakers to be very true and accurate. They sound good. I suspect these speakers will be all I need for quite...

Great sounding speakers!

 

Compact and stylish design. No sweet spot, I can listen from any seat in the room. Nice balanced sound, not too much bass

No video shielding

Consumer review by:

smart size, big bang for the buck

 

Perfect even for the very large space of our living area with its vaulted ceiling. Slick shelf unit size-wise with a surprising amount of bass, but planning to add a sub woofer soon.

Product Specifications

Legendary Bose sound is well within reach with the 201 Direct/Reflecting speaker system. These speakers deliver remarkable stereo sound with lifelike spaciousness and can serve as a quality rear channel in a Bose component home theater setup. The 201 speakers offer a combination of performance and style for the music that moves you and the movies that keep you pinned to your seat. They integrate seamlessly with the VCS-10 center channel speaker and the Bose 301, 601 or 701 Direct/Reflecting speakers for a five-speaker home theater experience. Hear 201 speakers for yourself to appreciate this rare package of versatility and affordability. You'll understand why they have long been one of Bose's most popular speakers. At the heart of this system is Bose's proprietary Direct/Reflecting speaker technology, which re-creates a natural balance of reflected and direct sound for an experience similar to that of a live performance. This technology also allows Stereo Everywhere speaker performance to fill your room with the brilliance of soulful jazz or the raw energy of a gripping drama. Each speaker features a Stereo Targeting tweeter to create a sense of lifelike spaciousness and a 6?" woofer to reproduce the low notes with clarity, even at high volumes. From the deep, rhythmic beat of a helicopter cutting across the sky to the uplifting songs of birds at dawn, the 201 speakers present a compelling audio experience. Suitable for living rooms, dorm rooms or most anywhere you'd like to enjoy music and movies, 201 speakers take up minimal space and blend nicely with your decor. You can also choose accessories for even more placement options.
