Features

Virtually Invisible In-Ceiling Speakers: The Bose Virtually Invisible 791 II in-ceiling speakers are engineered with one 7" woofer and two strategically positioned 1" tweeters each, eliminating the need to aim the speaker into the room. The acoustic design allows for full, even sound coverage, while their smaller size increases placement options. Exclusive Bose "Stereo Everywhere" speaker performance provides balanced stereo sound over a wider area, with no drop-offs.

Stereo Everywhere Speaker Performance: "Stereo Everywhere" speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area, unlike conventional home audio speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction. Bose "Stereo Everywhere" speaker performance delivers sound evenly throughout the listening area for balanced stereo sound wherever you listen, not just in one sweet-spot.

Drivers: The combination of two 1" dome tweeters and a 7" high-excursion woofer provides spacious stereo sound for your favorite music. You will also enjoy the deep low notes of dramatic movie sound effects. This makes 791 II speakers ideal for a rear-channel option in a home theater setup. The tweeters are strategically positioned to eliminate the need to aim the speakers into the room.

  • 7" Woofer: A 7" high-excursion woofer delivers deeper low notes for more dramatic movie sound effects and musical richness.
  • Dual Angled 1" Tweeters: Two strategically positioned 1" tweeters (array configuration) in each speaker eliminate the need to "aim" the speakers into the room. This lets you arrange your room with greater freedom.

Spring-Post Terminals: The Bose Virtually Invisible 791 II in-ceiling speaker use spring-post terminals to connect your speaker wire (18-14AWG).

In-Ceiling Installation: The Bose Virtually Invisible 791 II in-ceiling speakers offer simplified installation with only four clamp screws that secure each 791 II speaker to your drywall. The 791 II-series speakers also feature an infinite baffle design that uses the ceiling as the speaker enclosure. The infinite baffle design eliminates the need for a separate speaker enclosure, so it uses the space above the ceiling instead. Once you have positioned the speakers, just tighten the clamp screws and snap the magnetic grilles into place. The finished looked is unobtrusive, and almost invisible. You can even paint the speaker grilles to match your décor.

Note: Virtually Invisible 791 II speakers are designed for in-ceiling installation only. Virtually Invisible 791 II speakers can only be installed in wood frame construction covered with wallboard made of gypsum, plaster and lath, paneling or similar construction.

Paintable Grilles: The ultra slim bezel is attached directly to the speaker grille, allowing them to be easily painted in one simple step and blend elegantly into the room. And with no cloth scrim, there's no worry of excess paint clumping or soaking in. Plus, magnets allow them to snap on and off quickly.

Cutout Template: Cutout templates are not included in the box, therefore, you will need to print a template from the manual linked from the Crutchfield website, or from Bose.com. You must make sure the template is printed at 100%, and not enlarged or reduced. The measurements on the template are expressed in millimeters, but a 1" scale is provided to make sure it is printed to scale.

Installation in a "new build / remodel" to a Rowe NGX jukebox and we normally use the Bose 301 speakers and after talking with your advisor Abe on one occasion and Parker on another we determined these were very similar in sound and a much cleaner install. Can't wait to hear the audio in this location. [ Kevin  Jan 14, 2017 ]

8 questions already asked

Q
Will these fit in the Klipsch ME-650 enclosure? The enclosure diameter is 8.47" and the Bose literature says to cut an 8 5/8" hole. Realizing that 8.625" > 8.47", but wonder if the real world tolerances would allow this speaker to actually fit in the box?
[ Chris  Apr 07, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
I would not expect them to fit. If the Bose recommended a cutout of 8.5" then most likely they would fit. Being that these Bose are a good amount over that, I do not expect them to fit the box without modifications to the box

Q
I am looking for a sound system to install in the street: we would like to equip 1 and 1/2 block with wireless, commercial grade and wether proof speakers that would allow us to wirelessly connect to the band we book for festivals or to play our business pandora for community events. Is this the right system?

[ Shelton Keith  Jan 06, 2017 ]
Q
Do you need a sub woofer when using these speakers for surround sound?
[ Bruce  Jul 25, 2016 ]
4 answers
A
No, you do not need a subwoofer when using these speakers, all you will need is the receiver and the cabling. Hope this helps.
[ Michael  Jul 26, 2016 ]
A
Not at all, they are great. They are in my garage and wow!
[ Shelton Keith  Jul 26, 2016 ]
A
I did not use them as surround speakers. You will probably want a sub if you are doing a surround system for watching movies.
[ Scott  Jul 25, 2016 ]
A
Bruce, I bought the same speakers and don't have a sub woofer. They work and sound great without. Hope that helps.
[ GARRET  Jul 25, 2016 ]
