      Comments about 161 Speaker System (Black):

      I wanted speakers to supplement the "transistor radio" speakers that are built into my tv. I bought these speakers and a small amp to power them up. After easily mounting speakers to the wall with supplied brackets and hardware, I can now hear my tv with quality sound! My living room is about 20'x 25'...these speakers are just what I was looking for!

      Comments about 161 Speaker System (Black):

      I have the Bose Accoustimass 5.1 for the side surrounds, so when I upgraded my receiver to a 7.1, I decided to go with the Bose 161 for the rear to keep everything Bose. I mounted them to the walls high up in the rear of my living room and WOW, the room really comes alive! I dinged 1 star because these are bigger than I thought they were going to be, almost loaf of bread size.

            I bought them to replace big outdated Yamaha speakers. The Bose are great, they don't deliver bass as well but they don't take up any room, which was my goal.

              Good clear sound. Not a lot of bass but appropriate for the size of the units.We have used them as surround backs with a Denon receiver and they are a great deal clearer than the original.They add a "filling" effect to the room.

                Sound is really very clear, a little expensive. Would have given 5 star to this product had BOSE given the wire also.

                  I use these in my lab. We run our Apple TV, DVD Player and our classroom microphone through them. The room is long an somewhat narrow but these two little speakers fill the room from front to back. All my students can hear no matter where they are in the lab.

                            I bought two sets to use as surround speakers in a 7.1 channel home theater system. I choose them primarily based on price. I wasn't able to compare these with other surround speakers, but I'm completely satisfied with the sound. I mounted them on the wall with the included hardware. My only critique is that the flared shape looks a bit awkward when mounted on the wall. They look better sitting flat.

                                I mounted them in my kitchen and dining room to extend my stereo audio to these rooms. They look and sound great, but are a little bigger than I expected.
