Bose 161 Speaker System w/ Mounting Brackets is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Speaker I Bought that for use as main spakers in my small room, powered by a vintage Kenwood amp. The result couldn't be worst, the sound too bright, sounds like a cheap plastic speaker and medium frequencies around 200Hz-350Hz sound too much. Really, I expected more from them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced mids and highs I've used these pair of speakers for some time now, and I have used them as stereo as well as surrounds. Currently it is stand mount and meets my surround requirement. The set up that I currently have is a Yamaha RX -V673 receiver with a Yamaha bluray player. Speakers are Front Right, Left : B&W DM 603S3 Centre B&W LCR 40, surrounds are 161(why ? because i needed them compact as there was no room to accommodate larger speakers), and front presence speakers (which are a feature of the Yamaha receivers) are Bose 201, Sub is Velodyne CHT 10. I have to say these 161 make an impression of their own, they stand out. The 7 channel stereo option of the Yamaha when listening to music brings the best out of these 161's. As I mentioned Ive also used these speakers as front stereo coupled with my Velodyne sub, as the bass is lacking (understandable), but you need to set the crossover right or else the bass of your sub will overwhelm the highs and mids. For that you would have to place your sub and speakers properly(lots of trial and error) till you get what you want. Once the system is set you will not be disappointed, these little beauties sound very balanced and the soundstage is also great, your sub will provide for the bass and you will enjoy the experience. BTW I was using a YAMAHA AS 500 stereo amp to power them. I was really enjoying my experience, then I upgraded my stereo speakers to Bose 301's and moved the sub and 161's to my home theatre setup. In conclusion Pros :1) Compact and easy to handle. 2) Durable. 3) Easy set up 4) Balanced sound, very good mids and highs. 5) Value for money. Cons: 1) Wire connection is the spring loaded type instead of banana clips. 2) Lacking in bass 3) Cannot be placed on a flat surface, designed to be wall mounted or stand mounted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finalement satisfait J'ai acheté ces enceintes car mes enceintes de mini chaîne étaient trop inesthétiques et donc planquées. J'ai choisi ce modèle car il était assez discret et pouvait s'accrocher au mur pour avoir un son aérien. Après branchement...mauvaise surprise, le son était "foireux" comparé à mes précédentes enceintes. J'étais sur le point de les renvoyer, mais j'ai quand même consulté les avis sur les enceintes car dans mon souvenir ils étaient plutôt bons. Effectivement un rodage de plusieurs heures étaient nécessaires, et une fois les enceintes bien placées en hauteur, le son à pris tout son ampleur. Le son bose est particulier mais on s'y fait et on apprécie. J'hésite maintenant à ajouter un petit caisson de basse car mes précédentes enceintes envoyaient plus au niveau des basses fréquences et ça manque un peu quand même.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for front or suround in gaming. I bought some 161 speaker 8 years ago when i was in middle school dropped them a couple of time and they still work well to this day. I love them very clear for gaming can hear everything. Awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!! These speakers sound hollow, tinny and lacking in detail. I returned them for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Sound I have the black 161's as rear surrounds in my 5.1 system, which consists of: Pioneer Elite Receiver, Bose 201 Mains, Bose VCS10 center, Bose 161 Rear, Klipsch Synergy 10 Sub. They are seamless, sound great with movies and music, and are quality built. I have owned the whole set of Bose speakers for 10 plus years, often thought of upgrading for something " new", but there just really isn't a need to because these things just produce day after day....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOSE for LIFE! I purchased 4 pair of 161's in 2009 = 3 pair (with 2 Polk Subwoofers) for my theater and 1 pair for my dining room (with Bose Accoustimass 5 Series). Bose Only = Since 1979 Bose 601's 2 pair, Bose 301's 1 pair, Bose AM 5'system, Bose AM 3'system, Bose 321's 2 systems, Bose Soundlink II's 4 each, Bose Soundlink III's 4 each. Great gifts! Ready to deck out the mancave/lounge. BOSE-BOSE is what Chose!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small speaker, good vocal but little bass It can be a good satellite speaker. Don't have much bass by them self. The bass output start rolling off at about 100hz. Looking at the impedance curve, there seems to be capacitors protecting the twiddlers from deeper bass. So, they should be combined with a SUB crossing at 80hz. If you are looking for a small desktop stereo speaker, I suggest Bose Companion 2 instead since they have fuller bass. With a AV receiver, the 161s can play much louder, though.
