Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Black Bookshelf Speakers (Sold As Pair)

When it comes to judging the Bose® 301® speaker against others in its class, there really is no comparison. Once you hear the lifelikesound you'll know why. Advanced Bose Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology reflects sound off the walls of your room. The result is arich, natural blend of reflected and direct sound that conventional speakers cannot match. Music sounds more like what you'd hear at aconcert. Movie sound effects approach what you'd experience in a movie theater. Discover why the streamlined, newly redesigned 301speaker is at the head of its class.

Product highlights:

  • Our best bookshelf speaker engineered for music and as a front- or rear-channel solution for home theater.
  • Direct/Reflecting®speaker technology delivers lifelike, spacious music.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance lets you hear stereo sound almost anywhere in the room.
  • Hear full, natural low notes from a ported enclosure.
Top-shelf performance for stereo and surround sound.
Compare Bose® 301® speakers against other bookshelf systems, and you'll understand why this is one of the world's best-selling speakers. These versatile and elegant speakers are ideal for movies, music and more.

Advancing a long-standing tradition of high-quality audio, 301 speakers feature Bose proprietary Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology to re-create lifelike, spacious sound. You enjoy a natural balance of reflected and direct sound for a listening experience most conventional speakers cannot match. Music sounds similar to what you'd hear at a concert, while movie sound effects resonate much the way they do at the theater.

For lifelike music and movies, just add walls.

The 301 speakers fit practically anywhere — living room, bedroom, wherever you'd like. Acoustically and visually, they match other Bose speakers for seamless sound and styling. If you're thinking about component home theater arrangements, they can serve as front speakers with our VCS-10® center channel speaker and 201® or 161™ speakers for surround sound. Or use 301 speakers as rear surround speakers with a VCS-10 center channel and 701® or 601™ speakers up front.

With so many options at your disposal, it's little wonder Bose 301 speakers are soundly above all others in their class.


Advanced technologies make all the difference.
Most conventional speakers radiate sound directly into the room, sending balanced stereo sound to one small "sweet spot." The 301 speaker system is designed to deliver Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance. You can sit just about anywhere in the room and still enjoy balanced stereo sound.

Direct/Reflecting® and Stereo Targeting® tweeter provide mid to high frequencies over a wide, stable area between the speakers. And 8-inch woofers in each speaker enable smooth reproduction of deep, low notes, even at high volumes. You want to hear the full spectrum of audio, and this speaker delivers.

The 301 speakers also feature a host of accessories for many placement options, and streamlined styling to complement your room design.

After reading multiple reviews from different websites I decided to take a shot and try this pair of speakers. What a pleasant surprise I had while unboxing, the quality that only Bose can deliver was present in all details, from the carton box, up to the nice pair of black finish speakers. Very easy setup, the key is to have the right amplifier to connect them to. I got a pair of banana plugs, a couple meters of 18 gauge copper oxygen-free speaker cable and that was much it. I hooked them into a Bose SA-5 sound touch amplifier (newest available) and start enjoying crisp clear, loud beautiful sound that only Bose can deliver. Simply amazing. The weight and size of each speaker is perfect to either have them on a table, bookshelf or have them wall mounted, or on stands. The key for this will depend on your room layout. I had the amplifier connected to my music library, and all managed through the sound touch app with IOS, very simple, straightforward and most important, GREAT SOUND! Can't go wrong in choosing this speakers, I would definitely recommend them!

I can't find the spec's for these speakers.

I got a pair of these for Christmas. I can't find the specs anywhere so I don't know what to set my receiver for. I will be taking them back.

Proven Cost effective after 25 years of abuse

By

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System:

I have a pair of 301 and 201 hooked to a 200 watt amp for almost 25 years and they still kick and are distortion free. I put these speakers through some real punishment continues high volume ,dusty garage conditions , had them fall many times on to the garage floor , had them fall onto my car hood , did damage to the hood but the speakers never missed a note, had wires crossed with the powered sub , no damage done, took them up state and out of state over the years to MC parties still no issues , My kids poked the center cone inward with a stick no problems , I have abused these speakers to no end all that punishment without covers, I am only now looking to replace them do the foam desenagrating. even that and they still sound good after a lot of music including every AC/DC album about 30 to 40 times each and then some. I have been using them in a unheated garage in NE Penn. year round since new I have retired a few amps over the years but the speakers stay the same. For this product I can truly say my money was well spent

Outstanding speakers

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System:

I've had my 301s for 22 years. They still sound great. I use them outside when the wife and kids are gone and they sound as good at 100 yards as at 10 feet. I've forgotten to bring them in a few times, so they've been snowed on, rained on, dewed on and frozen, with no effect. Still waiting for the right time to get a pair of 901 speakers, but I need a larger house for them.

Awesome speakers!

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System:

I recently bought these to replace a pair of 13 year old bookshelf speakers that came with my home theater system. I've always been amazed at other Bose products that I have known other people to have. These continue to blow me away. I'm using them without a sub, and they really rock. The lows, mids, and highs are all very impressive. I especially love the spacious sound field. You cannot go wrong with these.

Good Price - sound relation

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System:

I bought my 301's less than a year now, it sounds good, I had to say that my expectations where higher than what I heard, even when they sound good is not by far the crisp, detailed and powerful due the size. I paired them to my HK avr3700 therefore is no option for a lack of power or detail, Previously I had a couple of smaller cambridge and replace them with this 301 however I can not notice a notable difference just the powerful by the other hand the canbridge reproduces more pristine sound. Perhaps for the price but is not what is expected from Bose.

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System:

Happy owner of 301's for over four years now. Replaced a set of 201's series II with these.. They really do have a great balance of sound, I paired mine with a 100w subwoofer for a little kick. The 301's paired with a good sub, sound better than my floorstanding 45lb Acoustic Research 8 Speakers, and can hold a match to my fathers 901's. I still want 901's... but you will not be disappointed with these speakers at all. Great product, and in my opinion the best Bose stereo speaker.

Outstanding Full Wonderful Sound

By

Comments about Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System:

I have purchased several Bose products over the years, starting with the Bose Wave alarm clock, then the docking station speaker for Apple IPod products, then home theatre and more recently the Bose Sound Link lll Blue Tooth Speaker. These products are outstanding if you love music and good sound. I use the Sound Link in the living room all the time in spite of having a Bose 301 stereo system in the room. The Sound Link fills the room with wonderful "full rich music". It's the only speaker I use for music right now. I purchased the Bose Wave, over 19 years ago and it still sounds as good as the day I purchased it. When I am interested in a speaker system, I will only consider one product "Bose". Excellent products that have thrilled me for years.
