Bose 51 & amp guidance for outdoor


Standard Member
Hello all,

I've recently bought 6no Bose freespace 51 speakers (2nd hand) for the garden but am a bit lost in terms of what amp/receiver to buy, the garden is a decent size so these will be spread out.

Speaker specs:
  • Nominal Output Power
    50 Watt
  • Nominal Impedance
    4 Ohm, 4/8 Ohm
  • Recommended Amplifier Power
    10 Watt

The maximum run to the furthest speaker will be around 15m, I only want to stream from a phone via bluetooth/airplay. What would you recommend buying? I'd like to keep costs down if possible so nothing over £500. Would this be a 7 channel receiver? or can I get an amp with bluetooth connectivity?

Thanks in advance!
