Overview

Overview

Performance and versatility

Streamlined design. Startling performance. Bose® 161™ speakers are a versatile option for both music and film listening. They work with your stereo receiver, but can also serve as front or surround speakers in a component home cinema setup.

  • Component speakers that connect to a stereo or home cinema receiver
  • Twiddler® drivers use proprietary technology to generate more air movement from a small enclosure for rich low-frequency sound
  • Custom mounting brackets included for additional placement options

These small bookshelf stereo speakers provide balanced stereo sound that rivals much larger stereo speakers. An Articulated Array® speaker design uses precisely positioned drivers inside the speaker cabinet to provide a large, consistent sound field. This means you get broader, more even sound throughout the listening area.

If you’re a component-minded home cinema enthusiast, these sleek speakers are also ideal for front or rear speakers. Custom mounting brackets are included to increase placement options throughout your home.

Features

  • Articulated Array® speaker design with precisely positioned drivers provides a large, consistent sound field.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose™ technologies, these stereo speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional home audio speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.
  • Twiddler® drivers use proprietary technology to generate more air movement from a small enclosure. They deliver the kind of performance you'd expect from much larger speakers, making it possible to enjoy rich, low-frequency sound from smaller speakers.
  • Home cinema expansion capable for cinema-like sound—and a seamless home cinema design—when you combine this product with a centre channel speaker and any Direct/Reflecting® speaker system.
  • Magnetically shielded speakers allow for speaker placement in close proximity to your TV without interfering with the picture quality.
  • Syncom® computer tested to ensure one of the highest levels of quality and reliability in the audio industry.
  • Custom brackets included for easy installation and flexible placement possibilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 161 bose speaker I brought year ago and I set up with zone 2 and work is great and great sound I play all day sound like big speaker easy to install and I highly suggest to buy this speaker because bose is brand name. ...thanks....jaspal

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small speaker, good vocal but little bass It can be a good satellite speaker. Don't have much bass by them self. The bass output start rolling off at about 100hz. Looking at the impedance curve, there seems to be capacitors protecting the twiddlers from deeper bass. So, they should be combined with a SUB crossing at 80hz. If you are looking for a small desktop stereo speaker, I suggest Bose Companion 2 instead since they have fuller bass. With a AV receiver, the 161s can play much louder, though.
