Re: Bose 251

Hello!

 

Sorry for the confusion. You can certainly stream the same audio across the SoundTouch 300 Soundbar system and the 251s as long as you have the SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier. If you are wishing the listen to your TV audio on these additional speakers, please be aware that a slightly audio/video will be present due to processing. You can find more information on that here >> Wired Input Audio Rebroadcast

 

Get back to us with any additional questions you may have.

 

Warm regards,

Re: Bose 251

Hi Dan, thanks for taking the time to post and welcome to the Bose Community!

 

The SoundTouch 300 and bass module are not compatible with the 251 outdoor speakers. We would instead suggest that you look at our Surround Speakers or the Surround Speakers 700 for this Soundbar.

 

If you would still like to use the 251 outdoor speakers, you could use our SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier, and the grouping mode on our SoundTouch app to play Wi-Fi or Bluetooth audio across all your speakers, and while you can rebroadcast TV audio to the 251 speakers you cannot use these as rear speakers in a surround setup.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions with the above! Likewise, if you decide to setup an SA-5 Amplifier with your 251 speakers, I would be happy to guide you through this 😊.

Getting the Surround speakers will not help as they only broadcast the rear surround left and right channels from a 5.1 signal.

Hello Dan goor,

 

That is correct. Streaming music from the services within the SoundTouch app will play consistently across the grouped speakers. For example, Spotify, TuneIn etc.
