Have no regets with 301's
This review is from: BOSE® 301® Series V Direct/Reflecting® Speaker System (light cherry)
Pros: If you have two or four of these, and a high quality center channel, you will never ever need a sub-woofer; powered or not. I use these as my rears, with a good center channel, and high quality monitors as my fronts. I have yet to be impressed with any other pro-logic set up that I have heard. Of course, a high quality, high-current amp is mandatory.
Cons: These, like most Bose products today, are sadly made in Mexico. Nothing like another USA success story being outsourced (with our collective future) down the river. I beleive Bose was started by a single MIT engineer.
Other Thoughts: The sideways and rear firing tweeters seem to make these superb for rear channel use. I have mine at an angle, and the effects on some movies are just unreal. If you own the dvd Toy-Story2, view the part where the large concrete pipe falls from a semi-trailer, and rolls across the pavement. This is the best woofer test I have heard (it rolls across your room, if you have good speakers, and NOT a single, loose, exagerrated blabbling sub-woofer).
