    Bose 251 reviews

    251 Outdoor Environmental Speakers (White) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them Installed last week and in under an hour with sa5. Very noticeable improvement over my Bose Bluetooth speaker. The stereo sound blows it away and no more worrying about charge levels. It's great to relax on my deck with a cocktail and since I have the sound touch 20 in my kitchen I can refresh my drink wiyhout a break in the music.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These speakers are the TRUTH! bought these from the Bose store in Williamsburg. Ive always had Bose speakers throughout my life due to a family with musical backgrounds and the need for precise sounds. I was skeptical at first. I didn't think these would sound great outside. I gambled and it paid off. I installed them about 10' apart just underneath the soffit to help protect against rain. These speakers sound absolutely AMAZING!. I hooked them up to a old Kenwood receiver. Our backyard is 165' long and 85' wide. Turning the volume to 2 and you can have crisp clear sound and hold a conversation with someone 50' away. I turned it to 4 and it was even more amazing of the sound all the way to the back of our property. I then tried 6 and I feel like im at a rock show. I think where they are mounted helps as well. Thinking the sound bounces off the siding and reflects towards me helps . I thought I was going to need 2 pair but this 1 pair is plenty. Bose knows they have a great product. This is why the design hasn't changed in years. Trust me, as a 30 year musician , these are what you need for your backyard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best speakers going!!! I’ve owned the same pair of 251’s since 2001, they have been excellent. I hope I can get another 16 years out of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Sound and Durable I have had a pair of 251's on my deck mounted under the overhang of the roof for 12 years now and they still rock. They see -20 degree F up to 100 degree F temps over the course of a year. I think the trick is to minimize the direct sunlight and moisture that hits them and they will last a long long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 13 years and still wonderful.... I have two pair that are in a covered outdoor room that is 16 x 20 in size. The 251's use of two tweeters angled provides a wide sound field creating a great result for outdoor use. The sound is excellent even at low volume making it easy for my guests to both enjoy it and not have to talk over the music. One pair is installed high in the corner surrounded by wood which amplifies the bass. The other pair is surrounded by just air. Where they are installed makes a big difference as my two pairs sound very different when isolated offering an obvious lesson in acoustics. I use a pair of outdoor volume switches to balance them. I previously had them in another house where one pair were installed high covering a back yard and flooded a large area with sound. These speakers can play loud if need be. My experience with them in three different locations gives me a unique perspective in recommending them and attesting to there versatility . Few outdoor speakers will provide satisfying bass but if you have a choice of where to install, using acoustic common sense can aid in improving the bass. Mounted on wood vs. brick will change the sound, in corners vs open air.....etc. This is true with all speaker installations. Speaker reviews are subjective based on personal preference and expectations. These speakers are not bass monsters and their indirect tweeter array provides a wide sound that produces little fatigue. Auditioning any outdoor speaker outside of its actual installation is nearly a useless exercise. This model has now been around at least 15 years and obviously has been a good seller for Bose. I can say over the 13 years I have owned them, these speakers are durable, versatile and lived up to expectations at the premium price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose 251 outdoor speakers sound great! I have 4 sets of the Bose 251 speakers and have loved each installation. I have used them for my whole house audio system (placed under the eaves in our back yard) as well as a 5.1 system setup in a square 4-car garage. The Bose 251's always sound a little better when you add a subwoofer (like my 4-car garage); but for most stereo outdoor applications, a sub-woofer is not needed nor is it practical. The Bose 251's are a little pricey, but they do last a long time due to their excellent build quality.
