Product Features


Performance and Versatility
  • Streamlined design. Startling performance. Bose 161 speakers are a versatile option for both music and movie listening. They work with your stereo receiver, but can also serve as front or surround speakers in a component home theater setup.
  • Component speakers that connect to a stereo or home theater 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 theater enthusiast, these sleek speakers are also ideal for front or rear speakers. Custom mounting brackets are included to increase placement options throughout your home.
Additional 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 theater expansion capable for cinema-like sound—and a seamless home theater design—when you combine this product with a center 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.

  • Pair in carton: 6" H x 24.5" W x 7.75" D (7.5 lbs)
