The Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting speaker system is a classic bookshelf speaker that uses Bose proprietary technology to fill rooms with balanced stereo sound. Bose’s Stereo Targeting uses two 2-inch front-firing tweeters and one 2-inch rear-firing tweeter on each speaker. Because higher frequency sounds are more directional than bass sounds, the rear-firing tweeter audio is designed to reflect off whatever is behind the speaker, changing the dynamics of sound localization so your ear doesn’t isolate the music to a single location. The speaker’s long excursion 8-inch woofer and the 301’s flared slot port have the effect of cleaning the base for powerful, clear low notes and sounds. When placed on a bookshelf or entertainment center, you don’t need to be too careful about centering the audio output in the room because the reflective technology means the speakers don’t create listening sweet spots. Bose calls this tech Stereo Everywhere.
You can also use the 301-Vs with a home theater setup. Bose suggests that if used for a home theater application, it’s best to use the 301-Vs as the left and right front channel speakers, combined with a center channel speaker and other Bose Direct/Reflecting speakers.
Normally $438 for the pair, Amazon’s $218 sale price for two Bose 301-V Direct/Reflecting bookshelf speakers is a bargain. If you want a sweet-sounding set of bookshelf units to fill any space in your home with balanced audio, this is a great opportunity to take advantage of this awesome price.
