Bose 251 Outdoor Speakers Are Great


I am extremely satisfied with both the Bose 251 speakers and Vanns from which I purchased them. The speakers sound very natural, no enhanced bass or anything of that nature. Very good, tight bass, but a more natural sound then I hear on many other...

Bose Outdoor Speakers are AWESOME


I had a pair of Boston Acoustic speakers in my yard, then I replaced them with the Bose 251's. The Bose 251's sounded 10 times better than my Boston Acoustic speakers. I recommend them 100 percent.

Very good, BUT

Product Specifications

Award-winning 251 environmental speakers let you enjoy rich, balanced stereo sound over a much wider area than most conventional outdoor speakers. And 251 environmental speakers are tough enough to beat the weather. These speakers connect to your stereo components or Lifestyle system and mount to your exterior walls. With conventional outdoor speakers, sound can only be heard with impact in a few "sweet spots" instead of the broader range of your patio, pool or yard. But Bose 251 environmental speakers produce remarkably rich sound across a much wider listening area. Vital to that performance is Articulated Array speaker design, which houses two speakers set at precise angles in each enclosure. This produces an extremely wide sound field so that you experience consistent stereo effects as you move around outdoors. The small cabinets of conventional outdoor speakers often can't produce the low notes that provide impact. The 251 speakers blend with your outdoor surroundings, yet their technology and design eliminate the audible distortion often heard in other speakers. You can enjoy full, rich music without the need for large, bulky speakers.
