Product Details

Bose 201 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System - 201VLC

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.
