Our take on the Bose® 201® Series IV

Bose

Why choose bookshelf speakers?

Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.

This is Bose's most affordable bookshelf speaker to use their Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology. The 201® Series IV is a versatile speaker engineered to deliver satisfying sound, both for music and movies, and in a variety of systems (great for small rooms and tight spaces).

Each handsome slot-port enclosure houses a 6-1/2" woofer and Bose's wide-dispersion 2" Stereo Targeting® tweeter to deliver lifelike music throughout your room. Place the speakers with the tweeters firing inwards for a more focused sound pattern (recommended for video use). Or, placed with the tweeters firing outwards, you'll hear more spacious sound. Choose the overall sound you like best!

Recommended center channel speaker: Bose VCS-10®.

Enclosure

There are no provisions for wall mounting these speakers and the manual specifically notes that these speakers are not designed to mount on walls. The Bose speaker stands ( 018AS3) are specifically noted as the ones to use with these speakers.

Each speaker weighs 9 lbs.

Notes

As per the manual, these speakers may be placed with the tweeters firing inwards for a focused sound pattern (recommended for video use) or with the tweeters firing outwards for a dispersed sound pattern. The manual recommends trying both positions and selecting the one you like best.

These speakers were designed to be positioned horizontally and should not be placed vertically.
