Product Details

Bose 251™ Environmental Speakers, Model 251BRKTBK (Sold As Pair)

Product highlights:

  • Articulated Array® speaker design* reproduces sound over a larger area.
  • Patented multi-chamber bass enclosure for deep bass without audible distortion.
  • Engineered to withstand snow, sun, rain, ice and saltwater spray.
  • Five-year limited warranty.

*By precisely positioning the drivers inside the speaker cabinet, an Articulated Array speaker design can provide a large, consistent sound field. This allows for a more cinema-like experience with our VCS-10® center channel speaker and 161™ speakers, and for more even sound coverage with our 251® environmental speakers.

Meet the new standard in outdoor sound.

You demand quite a bit from an outdoor speaker. Not only do you expect adequate sound coverage, you need a durable speaker that withstands extreme conditions year-round. It takes a special speaker to meet these challenges.

Consider award-winning 251® environmental speakers, tough enough to beat the weather with uncompromised Bose® sound. These speakers produce balanced stereo sound over a much wider area when compared to most conventional speakers. And they're built to last.

Go ahead, cook on the deck, splash around in the pool or work out in the garden. The 251 speakers offer a rewarding, reliable performance that sets a new standard in outdoor sound. The compact, elegant design shows your good taste outdoors, as well.

Speaker technology that covers all the angles.

Hear the performance of 251 speakers, and you might ask how they produce such remarkable high-fidelity sound outdoors. The key is our Articulated Array® speaker design. Each speaker houses two precisely angled drivers to produce an extremely wide sound field and consistent performance as you move around outside.
And our patented multi-chambered bass enclosure helps deliver full, deep bass without audible distortion so you can enjoy some serious impact with the low notes.

Expand your Lifestyle® system outdoors.

If you own a Lifestyle® system, you can power 251 speakers with the Lifestyle® SA-1 stereo amplifier and bring the performance and simplicity of your system to the porch, pool or patio. It's the perfect opportunity to do more with your Lifestyle® system, and with the Lifestyle® SA-1 stereo amplifier, it couldn't be easier.

Tested to ensure performance in extreme conditions.

Bose 251 speakers are engineered and tested to withstand snow, rain, salt and temperature extremes of 140° F to -22° F. Such rigorous testing ensures a level of performance most conventional outdoor speakers — and many indoor speakers — simply cannot match.

These speakers also include weather-resistant mounting brackets and hardware to allow for easy installation.

13 years and still wonderful....

Comments about Bose 251 Environmental Speakers - Black:

I have two pair that are in a covered outdoor room that is 16 x 20 in size. The 251's use of two tweeters angled provides a wide sound field creating a great result for outdoor use. The sound is excellent even at low volume making it easy for my guests to both enjoy it and not have to talk over the music. One pair is installed high in the corner surrounded by wood which amplifies the bass. The other pair is surrounded by just air. Where they are installed makes a big difference as my two pairs sound very different when isolated offering an obvious lesson in acoustics. I use a pair of outdoor volume switches to balance them. I previously had them in another house where one pair were installed high covering a back yard and flooded a large area with sound. These speakers can play loud if need be. My experience with them in three different locations gives me a unique perspective in recommending them and attesting to there versatility . Few outdoor speakers will provide satisfying bass but if you have a choice of where to install, using acoustic common sense can aid in improving the bass. Mounted on wood vs. brick will change the sound, in corners vs open air.....etc. This is true with all speaker installations. Speaker reviews are subjective based on personal preference and expectations. These speakers are not bass monsters and their indirect tweeter array provides a wide sound that produces little fatigue. Auditioning any outdoor speaker outside of its actual installation is nearly a useless exercise. This model has now been around at least 15 years and obviously has been a good seller for Bose. I can say over the 13 years I have owned them, these speakers are durable, versatile and lived up to expectations at the premium price.

Comments about Bose 251 Environmental Speakers - Black:

Purchased my Bose 251 outdoor speakers to use inside a garage. They produce a sound so clear and natural you can actually hear every detail. However, they do not produce bass very well. You will need a powered subwoofer get sufficient bass.

Simply Amazing!

Comments about Bose 251 Environmental Speakers - Black:

Bought these speakers 4 months ago. I have always bought bose products, so when the time came when I needed outdoor speakers, of course I looked at Bose. As I researched the 251 and came across a few negative reviews. These made me doubt a little and started researching other speakers. After a while, I came back to the Bose 251 and the Bose amplifier and finally made the purchase. I installed them with the included brackets outside my house, and downloaded the Bose app.Played some music and the moment the sound came from those speakers I asked my self how I could ever have doubted Bose. The sound is absolutely incredible. I have no idea what any reviewer could have found at fault with these speakers other than perhaps the price. What I say is you are paying for quality and that's exactly what you get. Their size is perfect. The sound and the base are crisp and rich. Everyone that comes to my house marbles at the sound that comes out of these speakers. So glad I went with my heart. Thanks Bose for another great product.

    Comments about Bose 251 Environmental Speakers - Black:

    The sound from these are 251"s are amazing, I recently installed them. I plan on buying more now! My brother has these aboard his Alaskan gillnetter in ice, snow, pounding rain, sea water spray, and serious cold weather. They always sound great, and have never failed. I strongly recommend them.

    Quality Sound and Durable

    Comments about Bose 251 Environmental Speakers - Black:

    I have had a pair of 251's on my deck mounted under the overhang of the roof for 12 years now and they still rock. They see -20 degree F up to 100 degree F temps over the course of a year. I think the trick is to minimize the direct sunlight and moisture that hits them and they will last a long long time.

    Love these speakers

    Comments about Bose 251 Environmental Speakers - Black:

    absolutely love my soundtouch system. 251s are loud and great quality. I was concerned that they would appear to be too big on my deck, but I was wrong. they blend in perfectly. I have it connected with an additional soundtouch speaker indoors. I mostly use the soundtouch app as I have not completely mastered the controller. definitely recommend these
