Our take on the Bose® 151®


Outdoor speakers let you move the party outside

Outdoor speakers are built tough -- they laugh at wind, rain and weather. Tuck a pair under your eaves and they'll pump out the tunes to keep everybody smiling and swaying at your next cookout or pool party. We also have some "rock" speakers that blend seamlessly into your landscaped lawn or garden.

Get on board! With outdoor speakers, your music follows you anywhere. That's why the rugged Bose 151® speaker is designed for use at your pool, on your porch, patio, or deck, on a dock, or even on a boat! Specially engineered with a water-resistant, weather-tight housing and a Kevlar™ composite cone, these little soldiers can withstand all kinds of conditions — from blistering heat to icy cold, and the whole range of windy, sleety, snowy, foggy, drizzly temperatures in between.

And the sound is impressive! Bose applies tried-and-true proprietary audio technology to getting wide open sound out of these sturdy speakers, with great results — in fact, Stereo Review magazine picked the 151® speaker from ten outdoor speakers as "the most versatile speaker of the lot."

Enclosure: Engineered with a water-resistant, weather-tight polypropylene housing, these speakers provide extra durability through extreme weather conditions and still deliver great high-fidelity sound. For additional protection, the speaker uses a stainless steel front grille.

Drivers: The Bose 151 environmental speaker features a full-range driver with an ultra-durable, polymer fiber composite cone built to withstand temperatures from a blistering 140° F to a frigid -22° F. Additionally, the speaker can withstand salt fog, sun, high humidity (100% RH), vibrations and mechanical shock.

5-Way Binding Posts: The nickel-plated brass 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.

Wall Mounting: Weather-resistant mounting brackets are also included to allow for easy installation.
