Pros Versitele mounting, good sound imaging, not to big, strong sound, ok quality construction,
Cons not verry good bass, cost verry high, front grill construction poor, not what much power.
Summary OK so the Bose i bought them i saw them in a club years ago and OK. there good sound imaging o have a huge patio and garden i wanted to place sound for BBQ or party's, OK its a good size speaker, great sound imaging.. i tested with a 70 watt stereo by Mitsubishi.. i did dance music, rap, jazz, opera.. it was great for jazz or environmental songs.. pretty strong to.. but in dance or other categories it did not carry as well.. i need it to hook up a small sub woofer to complement the sound and that did it.. but.. I'm a little disappointed for that amount of money it should be a complete solution with good strong bass, as well as sound..i had them for a while know.. and the speaker have great construction, but a very cheap front grill. other than that its great product for out side warning do not exede 60 watts rms amp.. i will not do much more than that... but with half volume on my yamaha amp seams just to much sound.. so best played for outside BBQ 1/4 power..
it has multiple stand points. you can hang them..up or upside down as well as just leaving them in a shelf stack position,, easy like anything Bose makes..
note in Bose you dint pay for super high quality you pay for convince, style and portability, and some sound quality witch is good for small rooms and home application..
they have a PRO-AUDIO BUT I HONESTLY ONLY SEE THEM IN AMERICAN EAGLE AND ABERCROMBIE STORES, BEST BUY ENVIRONMENTAL SOUND IS BOSE.. LIFE STILE CUBES.. NOTE THERE NOT STRONGEST BUT EFFICIENT AND VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE.. LOOK AROUND..
ANYTHING MORE POWER FULL OR PROFESSIONAL. MAKE, CROWN, JBL, MASSEY, CERVING VEGA.. CONCERT APPLICATION

really good quality and exellent products. just wish the damm front grill wouldnt fall every time someone touchs it. haha..
ther are other product cheaper same quality .
Pros Excellent imaging for medium size application
Cons Mediocre bass reproduction
Summary I Own a club on the beach and use 12 of these for "fill in" to supplement the rest of the outdoor sound system. Had them for 4 years and all are still working just fine. Left them up during Hurricanes Ivan and Dennis here in Pensacola Beach Florida.For the average Boat/Homeowner these 251 Speakers should do just fine. Recently, I purchased a pair of Klipsch AW-650 Outdoor loudspeakers. The Klipsch AW-650 do have better bass reproduction than the Bose 251 however the sound dispersion with the Bose articulated array system fills a larger area. The Klipsch are also more expensive.
