Re: Bose 151 Speakers... Opinions
Spotify, millions of CDs...nice concept but then again, you can fit 800-900 albums on a 64GB data card with is only about $64 these days. Throw in a Jambox or other Bluetooth speaker box, and you can take the speakers where you need them, and stow them below when it blows real stink. Keep 'em in a plastic bag when on deck if you want.
I have the older Bose 101's, not permanently mounted, no porting to worry about, but IIRC Bose only calls them water-resistant, not designed to be used under green water. Wouldn't call the exceptional sound, would't call any Bose device really exceptional, but like anything from Bose they're not too shabby compared to a lot of what else is out there.
These days? really, who wants to run wires? You need really young good ears to hear any difference.
