About the Bose® Virtually Invisible® 191 speakers
Thanks to Stereo Everywhere® technology and a "they've-thought-of-everything" design, the cool Bose® 191 speakers flood your favorite room with classic Bose sound, without filling up your living area with bulky speakers and stands. They don't call them Virtually Invisible® for nothing.
Two full-range drivers in an Articulated Array® speaker design deliver great performance. Bose's famous Stereo Everywhere® technology sends rich stereo sound all over, so you don't have to search for a small "sweet spot" to really enjoy your music. And proprietary ported enclosures provide clean, consistent performance — especially in the lower frequencies — regardless of the space behind your wall or above your ceiling.
These easy-to-install speakers can be placed in your walls or your ceilings, and they come with a pair of rectangular grilles and a pair of circular grilles — you get to choose which shape best matches your room's look. The grilles and grille frames are finished in white, but are paintable to match your decor.

Articulated Array Speaker Design: Each speaker features two 2-1/2" full-range drivers in an Articulated Array speaker design, providing beautiful stereo sound across a wide area between the speakers and delivering a more stable center image than most conventional speakers.
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 the Articulated Array speaker design, these speakers allow you to experience rich stereo sound almost anywhere in the room, not just in one small "sweet spot".
Proprietary Enclosure Technology: The proprietary enclosure technology ensures consistent performance regardless of space behind the wall or above the ceiling.
Proprietary Ported Enclosure: The proprietary ported enclosure produces cleaner and deeper low-frequency performance and ensures that lower frequencies are mainly directed into the intended listening area, not into adjoining rooms.
Virtually Invisible Speaker Design: These speakers blend with your room - taking up minimal space - while delivering room-filling, lifelike sound.
Magnetically Shielded Drivers: The magnetically shielded drivers allow for speaker placement in close proximity to a television without magnetic interference.
Automatic Protection Circuitry: The Automatic Protection Circuitry protects the drivers from being overdriven without interrupting the music.
Installation: These easy-to-install speakers can be placed in your walls or your ceilings, and they come with a pair of rectangular grilles and a pair of round grilles. The speaker requires a cutout with the following dimensions: W=8.0625", H=5.5". A depth of 4.125" is required behind the drywall, regardless of the grilles you choose. Once the holes are cut, each speaker can be dropped in and the dogleg clamps can be tightened, allowing you to secure each speaker to the drywall without any extra assembly.
Note: For installation in new construction, an optional rough-in kit is required. For installation in a drop ceiling, an optional drop ceiling kit is required.
Paintable Frames and Grilles: The grille frames install flush to your wall or ceiling for a finished look and can be painted to match your decor.
Overall Dimensions with Round Speaker Frames: W=10.255", H=16.4375", D=3.931"
Overall Dimensions with Rectangular Speaker Frames: W=8.778", H=14.341", D=4.058"
