Summary: When I'm hosting a party - trust me these speakers are working !! You can push 301 speakers in a house party and the sound is great. Your walls will feel it !! Placement is key because this is how these speakers were designed to operate.The best thing about bookshelves - they take up minimal space but pack a punch for their size. Great for home theater sound too.
Summary: Many high brow audiophiles turn up their nose at Bose speakers. They like to quote specs, complain that Bose speakers are lacking in brilliance, tonal quality and, "the sound color in the speakers". To the non-audiophile, sound color is BAD. It means the sound delivered is not pure and has color (it may lack something), or it may be tinny, muted or dull; this is color. The main cause of sound color comes from the amplifier.
Summary: Ahhhh the much maligned Bose 301 speakers, I can honestly say that I have always been happy with mine. I purchased my first set in late 1978 they had just been released and after hearing them fell in love with them and their warm all rounded sound. many people say they are crap and not worth the $$$ but I've had many other speakers over the years and while some may have been technically superior none could match the listening quality of the 301's.
Summary: I can do nothing but jerk off and splatter goo all over the walls every time I hear these speakers! I almost dropped my Schlitz malt liquor on my lap, WOW! I came like BARBARO! What a splattering. You must own these speakers! My girlfriend rubbed herself to ecstacy ALL NIGHT as well! Evenutally we got together and slammed it, but even before that, these speakers induced massive loads of goo from me to the walls!
Summary: This is hard to describe product! As a long term audition addictive, thes small, poor-looking speakers shocked me in many respects. All negative comments to do with mis-placing or some other technical reasons within your system. To improve performance of those Jewel 301s try followings ; First of as those jewels use direct reflecting technology, which means they have nothing to do with its poor wooden boxes (otherwise would be an awful results) but the drivers itself.
Summary: These Speakers have always impressed me for what they are. I bought them as monitors when i was living in a flat in Sydney studying Audio Enginerneering. I used them to do my home work on and they served me well! They hosted many a party too and done the job perfectly, took some abuse from my 2x 85wRMS Denon amp.
Summary: First off let me start by saying I NEVER purchase my A/V equipment at Best Buy. Second, let me say that I've been disaapointed in Bose for the past 20 yrs. So why on Earth did I buy these speakers??? I can't believe it either! I've spent two years searching for the right speakers for my vintage low wattage Harmon Kardon receivers (330's and 430's) that could capture the true sound my 4 old Realistic 3-ways delivered.
