Reviews and Problems with Bose 201 DIRECT/REFLECTING speakers

Poor Sound Quality - Poor Construction
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.
Not a quality audio product, by any means of the imagination.

Summary: Bought the Bose 201 Series IV a year ago, they are the predecessor to the current model, Bose 201 Series V. If you are experienced in home audio, its obvious that just picking up one of these 201's feel much lighter in weight than your typical higher-end bookshelf speakers, of comparable or even smaller size. Cheap construction, the cabinet was only partially laminated, leaving exposed fiberboard.
