About the Bose® 301® Series V Direct/Reflecting® speaker system
Love the idea of a room filled with music? Sounds like you're ready for classic Bose sound, from one of the most popular speakers ever made. The world-renowned Bose 301® Series V Direct/Reflecting® speaker system delivers the spacious, open sound Bose is famous for. How do they do it? With two high-sensitivity 2" Stereo Targeting® tweeters teamed with a long-excursion 8" woofer, and 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." Huge numbers of people have found this the best way to enjoy stereo music — and it's great for home theater as well.
Worried about space? Don't be. Bose specializes in compact speakers that can fit unobtrusively into most rooms, and the 301® system is a prime example. The horizontal design makes it easy to place on bookshelves, too. And it's flexible — a pair of these speakers is exceptional as front left and right speakers in a small home theater setup, or as high-quality surrounds for Bose home theater in a large room.

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.
Long-excursion 8" Woofers: The long-excursion 8" woofers allow you to experience the remarkable effects of the lowest notes and balanced sound throughout the listening area.
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 301 Series V, they help create a sense of lifelike spaciousness and let you hear full stereo throughout the listening area.
Rear-firing Tweeters: A rear-firing tweeter sends sound from the back and side of each speaker for a balance of reflected and direct sound that is spacious and natural, like a live performance.
Tuned Port Enclosures: The unique port geometry enables cleaner and deeper performance for 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.
