301® Direct/Reflecting® speaker system
- Designed to deliver much of the impact of a live performance.
- A suitable choice for stereo or home cinema sound
- Small enough to fit on a bookshelf
- Optional accessories available for additional placement options
Bose® 301® Direct/Reflecting® bookshelf stereo speakers bring clear, spacious sound to your music and movies. These versatile bookshelf speakers are small enough to fit comfortably on a shelf or in an entertainment center, yet use advanced Bose® technologies to convey much of the power of a live performance.
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 the experience of a concert hall or theatre.
Unlike conventional speakers that focus stereo effects in a prominent sweet spot, Bose® 301® stereo speakers provide Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance. Proprietary technologies built into our best bookshelf speakers make it possible for you and your friends and family to enjoy balanced stereo sound almost anywhere in the room.
Spacious sound for movies and more
Our best bookshelf speakers can also be used as main, secondary or surround home cinema speakers. Simply connect Bose® 301® speakers to your surround sound receiver and experience exhilarating audio with your home cinema components.
If you own a Lifestyle® system, Bose® 301® bookshelf stereo speakers can help you extend its benefits to another room in your home. Simply connect these stereo speakers and an SA-3 amplifier to your Lifestyle® system and enjoy music in one room while family members watch a movie in another – at the same time, from the same system.
Streaming music with SoundTouch®
Another great feature you can enjoy with these speakers? Streaming music over your Wi-Fi® network. With an optional SoundTouch® SA-5 amplifier, you can discover and enjoy music more effortlessly than ever before. Wirelessly stream 20,000 Internet radio stations from around the world, songs and playlists from a personal music library, and popular music services like Deezer™ and Spotify®. It’s all available via your home Wi-Fi® network. The system also works with other SoundTouch® systems to create a multi-room listening experience. In party mode, these systems work together as one to play music everywhere. Stream different music in different rooms, play the same music in every room or create customised zones.
