Overview

Performance and versatility

Streamlined design. Startling performance. Bose® 161™ speakers are a versatile option for both music and film listening. They work with your stereo receiver, but can also serve as front or surround speakers in a component home cinema setup.

  • Component speakers that connect to a stereo or home cinema 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 cinema enthusiast, these sleek speakers are also ideal for front or rear speakers. Custom mounting brackets are included to increase placement options throughout your home.

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 cinema expansion capable for cinema-like sound—and a seamless home cinema design—when you combine this product with a centre 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic addition to lifestyle system I bought these 8 years ago to improve my Bose lifestyle system. I love the look and I love the sound. Lifestyle system is 12 years old and both are still going strong

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Performance I bought this speaker 5 years ago to use it with my workstation (computer). It is just great. Sound fidelity is the best.
