Articulated Array Speaker Design: By precisely positioning the drivers inside the speaker cabinet, an Articulated Array speaker design can provide a large, consistent sound field. This allows for a more cinema-like experience.
Stereo Everywhere Speaker Performance: Because many conventional speakers radiate sound directly into the room, you hear balanced stereo sound only in one small "sweet spot." Using patented Bose Direct/Reflecting speaker technology, the Direct/Reflecting speakers deliver a natural balance of reflected and direct sound. You hear balanced stereo sound almost anywhere in the room.
Mounting: Using the supplied brackets, the Bose 161 speakers can be mounted vertically or horizontally on the wall. Using the supplied self-adhesive rubber feet, the speakers can be placed on any flat surface.
Note: For Stereo Everywhere speaker performance, horizontal mounting is required.
Recommended Power: 10-100 watts with receivers rated from 4 to 8 ohms
Weight: each speaker weighs 4 pounds
