Bose DS 40SE
sjig, 29.04.2018
We have recently installed two of these speakers in our backyard. They're amplified by a Bose IZA 2120-LZ, which appears to be a great fit.

More on the speakers: These are well-build, high quality loudspeakers. According to Bose, the DS 40SE is the successor of the FreeSpace DS 32SE, but I like to think of them as a whole other speaker line. These speakers sound so much better than the 32's. Besides that, they look way better as well.

Installing them is a breeze, as Bose has done some work designing an incredibly user-friendly way of installing them. You just mount the wall bracket on the wall, after which you simply put the speaker on the wall bracket and tighten the speaker with the included bolt. Then it's just a matter of plugging the loudspeaker cable into the mounting bracket and you're ready to go.

More on the sound: WOW. I have heard these speakers many times before, under less than optimal circumstances, and although I wasn't necessarily amazed by them, I definitely couldn't not-like them. But after owning a pair of ourselves, I was able to have some quality time with them and really judge these speakers. Setting two of them up in stereo situation, they actually sound quite hifi-like. Of course, since it's only a 4,5" driver, they don't go very low and the real highs are lacking a bit. But hey, they're not designed for critical listening so that shouldn't be a deal-breaker.

The bass response is not that special. They go relatively loud for the size of the driver, but then, the cabinet is pretty big for a 4,5" driver. Don't expect ground-shaking lows from them, but just a fine low-mid bass response down to 70 Hz, which is more than enough for background music (although they can handle foreground music pretty good as well).

The mid-high section, on the other hand, is actually pretty amazing, especially for an all-weather speaker (where there have been some compromises). They sound incredibly bright and clear. Even at the lowest volumes, it's no problem clearly hearing every part of the music. Although we only use them for music, I would say they rock at paging applications.

As mentioned before, we are using them with the Bose IZA 2120-LZ. Now, I can't say you can't use any other amplifier, but I definitely can say that this amplifier is what makes these speakers sound so great (or at least the internal processing). It may not be the cheapest amplifier, but it does have everything you need (equalizing, sever in- and outputs, auto-standbye). Buying a 3rd party amplifier and processing will cost more than the IZA 2120 (so think about that xD).

A few ups and downs:
+ Great sound, with suffice bass response and incredibly clear mid-highs
+ Easy installing, which can be done by pretty much everyone who's able to hold a drill
+ Neat looks, nothing "over the top", just an elegant, modern design
+ Amazing all-weather performance, even spraying them with a pressure washer causes no problems

- When mounted in a water-ish environment, you will need to buy a Bose-approved junction box (else, the water can easily create a short circuit in the wall-mount)
- Although the speakers aren't that expensive, the "necessary" amplifier is, which makes that they're not that cheap
- Since it's hard to think of downsides: maybe an option to remove the Bose logo without leaving a hole in the grill?


Bottom line is: don't be mislead by the brand, these speakers rock
