Re: Bose 151 Speakers... Opinions

I have two pairs of them. One pair is dead.. These speakers are not sealed and the boxes are "ported". As such corrosion can get on the voice coil and corrode it. Older models used treated paper cones and the newer ones use plastic cones. As long as you're a "tin ear" you'll like them. If you want any sort of good sound quality there are better offerings.. They are quite efficient and easy to drive with a car stereo... For the price they are not a bad deal but outside they sound quite thin... We had a pair in the cabin and I ripped them out and replaced them last summer, for better sound quality..
