Bose 161™ speakers are a versatile option for both music and movie listening. These small bookshelf stereo speakers provide balanced stereo sound in a streamlined design that works with both stereo and home theater components.

Articulated Array® speaker design with precisely positioned drivers provides a large, consistent sound field.
Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose technologies, these stereo speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional home audio speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.
Twiddler® drivers use proprietary technology to generate more air movement from a small enclosure. They deliver the kind of performance you'd expect from much larger speakers, making it possible to enjoy rich low-frequency sound from smaller speakers.
Home theater expansion capable for cinema-like sound—and a seamless home theater design—when you combine this product with the Bose® VCS-10® center channel speaker and any Direct/Reflecting® speaker system.
Magnetically shielded speakers allow for speaker placement in close proximity to your TV without interfering with the picture quality.
Syncom® computer tested to ensure one of the highest levels of quality and reliability in the audio industry.
Custom brackets included for easy installation and flexible placement possibilities.
