Bose 301 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System

When it comes to judging the Bose 301 speaker against others in its class, there really is no comparison. Once you hear the lifelike sound you’ll know why. Advanced Bose Direct/Reflecting speaker technology reflects sound off the walls of your room. The result is a rich, natural blend of reflected and direct sound that conventional speakers cannot match. Music sounds more like what you’d hear at a concert. Movie sound effects approach what you’d experience in a movie theater. Discover why the streamlined, newly redesigned 301 speaker is at the head of its class.

Not having a decent stereo system for years, these literally blew me away. I can hear new majesty in listening to The Black Pumas or The Brandenburg Concertos. I am in heaven while listening, even amid all the chaos today

New Speakers - SN show - old and out of warranty
Purchase New on Amazon May 18 2020, and upon registration the SN states out of warranty? Are these old speakers sold as new? Online system will not let me enter a repair ticket or give feedback on these speakers. Called Bose and they said nothing to worry about since I just purchase them, but frankly expected newly manufactured components. Speakers age and get brittle with time. Beware of old manufactured speakers being sold as new.

The spark that started my life with audio.
Although I don't own them, 301's were the speaker that started me on the road to audio nirvana 40 years ago. Went to a apartment that belonged to the sister of a friend of mine. We were just hanging out and she turned on some music. The sound i heard coming from those 301's was unlike any i had heard. It was then I knew I had to have that sound and although I still haven't purchased a pair I've put together a couple of nice stereo systems that have satisfied my music fix. I think I'll order a pair just to relive that experience so many years ago. Cheers and enjoy the music, bring back the memories

Beautiful Sound
I love the sound of these bookshelf speakers. Great base, solid units and look just a good. I also purchased the stands and that enhanced the beauty and sound quality because of the reflective variance vs sitting flush against a back wall or bookshelf.

Best value for the money!
Do not let the price fool you. These speakers are absolutely amazing. They can rock the house with ample bass, precise mids and the front and rear tweeter design generate clear highs.

Make sure you set them up properly and if using them as mains, toe them in a bit.

For the record, when compared to my 2 other pair of much more expensive speakers the 301's not only hold their own, but in many instances they are my go to speakers. I use banana plugs so changing up my speaker sets is as easy as pie.

The 301's have been around for decades for a reason.

Great and lasting product
I bought the 301 speakers decades ago and they are still working perfectly. My non-Bose receiver which is younger than the speakers is now intermittently cutting out so I now consider replacing the receiver. I was hoping to find a receiver in the Bose product lineup but cannot find any. The speakers stay though and will move with me when we move closer to our children.

Perfect addition
This past year I relocated my BOSE Acoustimass 10 system from the living room to the new media room and thought some extra sound depth. The customer support crew helped me with some technical questions and spoke highly of the 301 speaker add on. After checking reviews I purchased a pair and installed using BOSE mounting brackets. The performance is thrilling.

This speaker has not been updated since 1997.
For a company that invests 100% of profits back into R&D ya think you would kill a 23 year old product.

Very impressed!
Very good sound quality for the money. I inherited a pair of Bose 301s Series II and the new ones I have don't sound as good the Series II but they still sound great!

How many ohms?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. Bose does not include an impedance specification. An independent product review from a credible publication states the impedance: 4 8 ohms. Technical note: Impedance is a function of frequency and in nearly every speaker varies from a range of typically 4 to 8 ohms. Without knowing the nominal impedance specification a pair of 301s should be the only pair connected to your receiver.
