Overview

A classic bookshelf speaker

Bring clear, spacious sound to your music with these classic and versatile bookshelf speakers. They can fit comfortably on a shelf or in an entertainment centre, yet use proprietary Bose technologies to convey much of the power of a live performance.

  • Component speakers that connect to a stereo receiver
  • Stereo Targeting® tweeters (5 cm) and one rear-firing tweeter (5 cm) combine for balanced stereo sound over a wide area
  • Long-excursion woofer (20 cm) delivers clean, powerful low notes

In a live performance, music reaches your ears, and your emotions, through a blend of direct and reflected sound. Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology recreates this combination to deliver spacious sound similar to what you'd experience in a concert hall.

Unlike many conventional speakers that focus stereo effects in a prominent sweet spot, Bose® 301® stereo speakers provide Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance. Proprietary technologies built into these bookshelf speakers let you enjoy balanced stereo sound almost anywhere in the room, not just in one “sweet spot”.

Features

  • Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology blends reflected and direct sound to re-create much of a live concert's natural spaciousness.
  • Flared slot port design engineered to reduce air turbulence. Woofer and port geometry complement each other so you can enjoy cleaner and deeper performance in the lower frequencies, particularly at high volumes.
  • Stereo Targeting® tweeters use precisely angled, 5 cm proprietary drivers to deliver balanced stereo sound, so you can experience lifelike spaciousness throughout the listening area.
  • 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.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose® technologies, these speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.
  • One rear-firing tweeter (5 cm) propels sound from the back and the side of the speaker. Enjoy a balance of reflected and direct sound for a spacious, natural experience much like a live performance.
  • Spatial Dispersion™ speaker lens creates a smoother high frequency spatial response and wider distribution of sound.
  • Long-excursion woofer (20 cm) delivers clean, powerful low frequencies and balanced sound throughout your room.
  • Compact bookshelf design blends into your décor. Use these speakers for music, or film sound—they can be used as main, secondary or surround home cinema speakers.
  • Automatic protection circuitry prevents drivers from being over driven and provides increased reliability while minimising interference with the listening experience.
  • Syncom® computer tested to ensure one of the highest levels of quality and reliability in the audio industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I’ve a pair of 301’s I got 19 years ago. I’ll bet the new ones are at least as good, but I’d trade mine for nothing. GREAT sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound from small packages For me, it is all about the sound. Full sound that elevates the music. I do my research and I buy carefully. These speakers are for a living room approximately 12 by 20. I am running them off a Harmon Kardon amp (AVR40) feeding 100 watts of hi-current power to each speaker. My sound sources include my phone via Bluetooth, CD player (yes I still play CDs), Blueray players, and my cable box. At low volumes, these speakers shine. They deliver a full spectrum of sound. At loud volume these speakers rock. To be fair, the bass is very good but could be enhanced with a subwoofer (as with all bookshelf speakers). But I don't feel a need to carry up my polk sub sitting in the basement because these sound so good without it (and my wife get's on us when the bass moves furniture around the floors upstairs...). Excellent sound for a very nice looking speaker. I put mine on the Bose stands and they really look great! The stands also enhance the reflective portion of the speakers on the back giving them room to operate. The sound reaching my ears is simply amazing. Love, love, love these speakers!
