Product Details

201VBK - Bose 201 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System (Sold As Pair)

If you thought the renowned concert-like sound of Bose® was out of reach, think again. The 201® speaker is the most affordable member of the Bose family of Direct/Reflecting® speakers. So now you can enjoy spacious Bose sound for a lot less than you might have believed possible. Unlike conventional speakers, the 201 speaker system lets you hear rich stereo almost anywhere in the room, instead of in one small “sweet spot” between the speakers. Great for listening to music or emphasizing surround effects in home theater. Come by for a demonstration and hear the difference Bose technology makes.

Highlights:

  • Offers remarkable stereo sound and can serve as a surround speaker for movies with most Direct/Reflecting® speaker systems and the VCS-10® center channel speaker
  • Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology delivers lifelike, spacious music.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance lets you hear stereo sound almost anywhere in the room.
  • Hear deep, clean low notes from a ported enclosure.
A sound investment for stereo and home theater.

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 our most popular speakers.


The elements of extraordinary audio.

At the heart of this system is our 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 6½" 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.

Designed to fit in your life.

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 décor. You can also choose accessories for even more placement options.

I am truly a Bose fan, as they are the only speaker system I end up buying after looking at others. When I look at price and sound quality of other brands I run back to the "BOOM" for your buck of Bose. For me they are the best for your buck. We have many of their products in all of our homes. We also like the small size of the system, as they do not take over the room. Only the sound does! And this is why we love BOSE. Most brands have huge boxes or lots of flashy lights and bands on them. its easy to hide Bose in plain sight. All that said I do miss the look of the small cubes on my old (now not working after 15 years) Bose Acoustimass 15 speaker system. The sound is so much better with the new 10 Series V that its easy to over look the new non cube look of them. Running them with a Pioneer Elite SC-85.

I recently bought a Accoustamas 10 speaker set for a home that I am building. I love the sound produced by this product, but I am somewhat disappointed by the use of proprietary cabling that is incorporated in the speaker design. I want to run speaker cables in the walls and place the accoustamas module in the back of my room. The non-standard cabling and connectors that are used will make this task much harder than it should be. I down graded my overall rating of this product just because of the compatibility issue created by the cabling design. I had a accoustimas stereo prior this so I knew that speakers were wired to the base module and not the receiver, but I did not know that the 10 was built with non-standard connectors. I do not know how to interface the speakers to speaker wire in the walls

Comments about Bose 201V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System Black:

I have converted single car garage into a home theater, using 2 pairs of Bose 201's as surround speakers and 1 pair of Bose 301's as main front speakers and a pair of Bose 161 as ambiance speakers and A bose center channel speaker (Discontinued Model) and a powered Subwoofer. I have gotten great reviews and have assisted three others in duplicating my system they love the rich sound and crispness delivered by all my the bose speakers, I would compare my system to any custom system out there. great products, great sound !

Comments about Bose 201V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System Black:

Got my 201's a year ago, by the pool table, there are 301's on wall 25ft away, sound great but we know 301's out play the 201's. So the 201's will go in the other room, I am happy with 6 Bose's purchases. My neighbor works for Harmon/JBL, got to listen to his stuff to compare.
