Our 251 environmental speakers let you enjoy rich, balanced stereo sound over a much wider area than most conventional outdoor speakers. And 251 environmental speakers are tough enough to beat the weather. These speakers connect to your stereo components or LIFESTYLE system and mount to your exterior walls.
Speakers that have you covered
With conventional outdoor speakers, sound can only be heard with impact in a few "sweet spots" instead of the broader range of your patio, pool or garden. But 251 environmental speakers from Bose produce remarkably rich sound across a much wider listening area.
Vital to that performance is an Articulated Array speaker design, which houses two speakers set at precise angles in each enclosure. This produces an extremely wide sound field so that you experience consistent stereo effects as you move around outdoors.
The small cabinets of conventional outdoor speakers often can't produce the low notes that provide impact. The 251 speakers blend with your outdoor surroundings, yet their technology and design eliminate the audible distortion often heard in other speakers. You can enjoy full, rich music without the need for large, bulky speakers.
BOSE versus mother nature
251® speakers from Bose are engineered and tested to withstand snow, rain, salt and temperature extremes of 60°C to -30°C. These speakers deliver a level of performance many conventional outdoor speakers - and most indoor speakers - simply cannot match. They are also protected by a five-year limited warranty.
Bring the performance of your LIFESTYLE system outdoors
If you own a LIFESTYLE system, simply add the 251® environmental speakers and a SA-3 amplifier to bring LIFESTYLE® system performance outdoors. You can have music by the pool, on the patio or wherever you like to listen outside your home. At the same time, with select LIFESTYLE® systems and the SA-3 amplifier, you can even play different music or films inside. If you own a LIFESTYLE system and 251 speakers already, just connect an SA-3 amplifier to your LIFESTYLE system using a single cable.
