Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Woofers: Each speaker features
a rear-firing 8" paper cone woofer that is powered by a built-in amplifier
(the amplifier is in the left speaker). Each woofer uses a foam surround.
Midranges: Each speaker uses a
rear-firing 6-1/2" coated-paper cone midrange with a cloth surround.
Tweeters: Each speaker has an
angled 2-1/2" Stereo Targeting tweeter and a 3" Stereo
Targeting tweeter. These proprietary drivers are engineered to direct mid to
high frequencies to a wide, stable area between the speakers. The tweeters help
create a sense of lifelike spaciousness and let you hear full stereo throughout
the listening area.
Technology: Direct/Reflecting speaker technology can recreate the ratio of
reflected and direct sound similar to what you hear at a live concert. As a
result, you experience the power, impact and emotion of a live performance in
your home. The 701 Direct/Reflecting speaker system offers everything you want
from floor-standing speakers: concert-like sound and elegant, unobtrusive
design. With their contoured design and precisely angled drivers, 701
Direct/Reflecting speakers use the rear and side walls in your room to reflect
sound all around you, immersing you in the musical experience.
Stereo Everywhere: Most
conventional speakers radiate sound to a single "sweet spot," but the
701 speaker system delivers Stereo Everywhere speaker performance. That means
you enjoy balanced stereo sound throughout the listening area. Sit almost
anywhere in the room, and you'll enjoy a wide, realistic soundstage.
Enlarged Bass Port: Bose
proprietary bass technology
reproduces deep, rich bass using an 8" woofer engineered into a 49"
tapered acoustic enclosure. The enlarged, rear-firing port enables bass
reproduction free from the audible port noise or compression that is often found
in conventional speakers.
