About the Bose® 201® Series V Direct/Reflecting® speaker system
Get ready to be impressed. Each speaker in the well-loved Bose® 201® Series V Direct/Reflecting® speaker system sports a 6-1/2" woofer and a high-sensitivity 2" Stereo Targeting® tweeter. This discreet speaker pours satisfying Bose audio into your room. It's all thanks to proprietary Stereo Everywhere® technology — it creates a mix of direct and reflected sound, so you don't have to worry about finding and staying in a "sweet spot."
Other positives? Unique port geometry reduces turbulence — you get clean bass. The compact size and horizontal design of each speaker makes it well-suited to small spaces. And it's the smallest, most affordable bookshelf speaker to utilize Bose's proprietary Direct/Reflecting® design. Perfect as front left and right speakers in a smaller room, or as surrounds for Bose home theater in a larger space.

Direct/Reflecting Speaker 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.
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.
Stereo Targeting Tweeters: These proprietary 2" drivers are engineered to direct mid to high frequencies to a wide, stable area between the speakers. Used in the Bose 201, they help create a sense of lifelike spaciousness and let you hear full stereo throughout the listening area.
Slot Port Tuning: The slot port tuning enables cleaner and deeper performance for the lower notes, particularly at high volumes.
Wall Mounting: There is no insert for a universal wall mounting bracket, Bose recommends using only their WB-3 wall mount brackets.
Placement: These speakers were designed to be positioned horizontally and should not be placed vertically.
