Bose 201 Series II speakers-great bookshelf perfomance & value!

demort71, Ebay

  • Summary: Very nice book shelf speaker with a dedicated right and left channel speaker. These came out in 1984 and were the next iteration after the original Bose 201 speaker! These are a 2 way design with a woofer and tweeter. That in itself doesn't make them a standout speaker in the vast array of bookshelf speakers out there. It is the cabinet design with its strategic deflection of the soundwaves that make it unique!

A review from a Bose hater

Daniel Charles, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I am a car audio guy, and my first inclination when seeing Bose products in a car is to take them out. There is much better to be had, and the stock Bose systems just don't sound very good. I ended up on this pair of bookshelf speakers for free, and i am powering them with the Lepai 2020+ mini t amp. On only 15 watts each, these sound INCREDIBLE. Granted, i got them for free, but they sound really, really good. I am really happy with them.

Love Bose...any era. Can't beat the value.

  • Summary: Amazing sound! When considering the overall size or lack-thereof as well as sound quality, these are tough to beat. They easily fill the entire 400 sq ft room with quality full range and are unimposing enough that I've almost effectively hidden them completely. Bought a pair off ebay and worked them hard for a few days. Handled the load without flinching. Great addition for my man-cave project.

Amazing Soundscape from small speakers

J. Ira Newman, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: The Bose 201 series speakers have served me well for almost 10 years. I've had them paired with a Bose center-channel and rear speakers. The high end sounds coming from drum cymbals and guitar solos in rock music, clarinet, trumpet and flute for classical - are all crisp and clear. The mid range has a warm quality that comes from the (relatively fragile) paper cones.

Poor Sound Quality - Poor Construction

David, Amazon
25 May 2011
  • Summary: I was really dissapointed in the Bose 201 IV. They seemed to be built really cheap. Within the first several months of purchasing these speakers, the laminate started to peel off and leave the particle board exposed on 20% of the speaker. The sound quality is also not very good.
