Bose® 151® SE environmental speakers feature enhanced performance and durability for full stereo sound in a wide listening area. Sleek styling and rugged construction make these our most popular outdoor stereo speakers for music around the pool, on a patio or even on a boat. Adjustable mounting brackets allow you to hang the speakers vertically or horizontally, so they blend easily into your environment.

These Bose® outdoor speakers feature an Articulated Array® speaker design. Inside each speaker are three 6.4 cm full-range drivers arranged to deliver full stereo sound across a much wider area than conventional outdoor speakers.
The result is Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance for a consistent listening experience as you move from deck to pool to garden. With these exterior speakers you can enjoy consistent Bose quality sound across a wider area, not just one sweet spot.
Weather won't come between you and quality
Our weather-resistant speakers have stood up to some of nature's worst conditions. For more than ten years we've been testing Bose® environmental speakers against snow, rain, salt and temperature extremes of 70ºC (158ºF) to -40ºC (-40ºF). For the boaters, we even put them through 1,200 hours of salt-fog testing, which is twice the demanding Marine Industry Standard. And they come with a five-year limited warranty.
- Bose® environmental testing simulates exposure to sunlight, rain, heat, ice, salt and water—proof of the extreme conditions these outdoor speakers can endure and still deliver reliable, long-lasting performance.
- Articulated Array® speaker design includes precisely positioned drivers to provide a large, consistent sound field for outdoor listening.
- Adjustable installation allows you to mount these exterior speakers horizontally or vertically depending on your preference.
- Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose® technologies, these speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.
- Full-range glass-filled speaker cone (6.4 cm) offers reliable, high quality sound reproduction across audible frequencies—even under extreme temperature and weather conditions.
- Glass-filled polypropylene cabinet provides added year-long protection against weather extremes.
- Slot-port tuning reduces air turbulence for cleaner and deeper reproduction of music's lower notes.
- Weather-resistant brackets and hardware withstand the rigours of year-round outdoor placement.
- Syncom® computer tested to ensure one of the highest levels of quality and reliability in the audio industry.
- Each speaker:31.5 cm H x 11.4 cm W x 15.2 cm D
