They sound great around our pool.
I found the music I played to sound crisp and clear with rich tones, and the speakers indeed covered a very wide area.
These speakers offer very good sound quality.

got these a couple of weeks ago from the bose store. they installed super easily, brackets sturdy and easy to place. the sound is phenomenal. very crisp with adequate bass, best appreciated at higher volumes than you may want inside but very good @ any volume. didn't feel like the cost was too prohibitive in comparison to other outdoor speakers, the sound is just that good. also looked @ bose 151's and although they sounded pretty good, there was no comparison to the 251's. highly recommend these if you barbecue a bunch, are in the yard a lot, or entertain outdoors often. we no longer have to blast our indoor klipsch speakers while gardening outdoors.

I had a pair of Bose 101 speakers outside for almost 10 years mounted on the deck, they performed perfectly, unfortunately being outside through Rain, Snow and summer heat took its toll and they were DOA in the spring. I wanted another pair of equally good sounding speakers to replace them and have been a Bose fan for a number of years. My expectations were set by the previous pair, and knowing the the open landcape of a deck is an acoustic challenge for any speaker. I ordered the Bose 251 speakers expecting the same or better sound quality and an easier mount/removal, as I will probably pull these in for the winter months. The 251's are perfect. The sound is crisp and even in an open landscape there is sufficient bass to my ears. I like the hand tightened method for securing the speakers to the deck mounted brackets, which will make removal and remounting a snap. All in all I'n very satisfied with this product, its a winner.

I purchased these speakers to replace some junky AudioSource speakers after about 10 years. The sound quality from the Bose 251s is incredible. When I go out in my yard, about 40-50 feet from the speakers, they sound like a professional sound system. The sound quality is incredible. These speakers face West so their durability will certainly be tested. They are in the middle of their first winter and so far, so good. Fortunately, I picked these up on Amazon for a measly $198 for the pair. Mistake? Maybe, Good Luck, Definitely. Even at the standard $398, these are still well worth the money.

The 251's build quality is great, they mount nice and look good.

The true benefit of bose is the "jedi mind tricks" they use to create acoustic chambers inside an enclosure to expand bass. They don't use high spec components but instead high tech design to maximize what they use. These 251's are made of a high quality rigid epoxy type enclousre with its 5 inch bass/mid cone mounted sideways INSIDE firing sidways into a chamber. You don't see it. Bass when compressed and ported thru a chamber gets exaggerated. Thats how bose sounds bigger then they are.

When we moved I took my 4 251's with me and installed them in a new 16 x 20 screened in patio using two volume switches hooked up to my 65per watt old Yamaha INtegrated amp from college. Nothing fancy using decent speaker cables to them makes them sound great. Certainly you don't need 4 of these for such a small space but I had them anyway and Overkill is part of the sterophonic/home theatre fun! If you go to fine restaurants with great accustics you'll notice you can talk at your table without lots of noise and the music system is very effective. They do this by having many speakers with the idea of having flood quality sound at low levels. This is what I can do in this space and it sounds great. Sure I can play it loud and it sounds great but at low volume the speakers design works to acomplish my goal. They don't use fancy tweeter, just two in an array to widen the sound stage. I have my speakers at the corners with the tweeters on the bottom (closer to the ear) but the bass end in the corner using the wood ceiling as a sort of additional base chamber with further warms the sound. I tried different placements and like this set up best.

Color Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Update 3/13/2013: I've raised my rating to 5 stars. I took the speakers inside and attached them to my stereo and TV to hear them in a quieter environment. I must say that when hearing them without any outside noise pollution they really sound outstanding. Very rich tones throughout. And if you look at these Bose 251's, they are really just a pair of Acoustimass cubes with a woofer in the back and an outdoor shell. I've got them on speaker stands right now and I'd even go as far as to suggest consumers try them out as indoor speakers.


These are Bose's 251 outdoor speakers. They're pretty hefty indeed, weighing at 8lbs each and are solidly built. Each speaker has 3 drivers: two 2.5" drivers and one 5.25" woofer.

I examined the speakers carefully. The lower part of the speakers consists of the two 2.5" drivers facing obliquely away from each other. If you look through the metal grille you can see them. I had thought the speaker was too narrow to fit the woofer in and the woofer is actually in the back which I thought was a circular resonance chamber, but is actually what Bose calls a proprietary multi-chambered enclosure.

1) The drivers facing away from each other gives the sound a wide dispersion area, which Bose calls Articulated Array® speaker design with precisely positioned drivers. You can walk around and still feel the full effect of the sound because you've got 4 drivers facing different directions, pretty much.
2) Bose calls the 2.5" drivers full-range drivers. I can go with that, as much as 2.5" drivers can be full range.
3) The woofer outputs its bass out of the narrow rectangular vertical openings to the sides of the drivers. If you look through the grill you can see them.
