the 701's give you spacious Direct/Reflecting  sound

Bose 701

Each of the larger 701 towers includes a side-firing 6-1/2" midrange driver that reflects sound off your rear and side walls for impressive spaciousness. Two fluid-cooled 2-1/4" Stereo Targeting® tweeters deliver pinpoint localization (you'll swear you can hear where the musicians are standing on stage).

The two 8" woofers inside the multi-chamber bass enclosure supply rich bass that seems to fill the room from every direction. It all adds up to a natural blend of reflected and direct sound much like you hear at a live performance. Maximum recommended power 400 watts. 32-1/2"H x 10-3/8"W x 12-1/2"D.

Priced per pair

Floor-standing speakers — still standing tall

Sure, floor-standing tower speakers buck the industry trend toward smaller, visually inconspicuous speakers, but they're hard to beat if great sound is your primary goal. Tower speakers produce powerful sound with excellent bass, making them a great choice for serious music lovers and for folks who want high-impact home theater.
