Summary: Amazing little speakers. I can hear things that I couldn't on my old speakers. I've had a lot of different speakers in the past years. These Bose have a unique sound. They lack the deep bass which can be obtained with the use of a separate sub woofer if your listening style requires that extra punch. The clarity on these are amazing. I can hear the bass guitarist sliding their fingers on the strings and the vocalist take a breath before the next line.
Summary: Love the sound and t6one for some of my music. I've been enjoying since I received these speakers. Old school rocks!!!! you'll need to look at special needs to run these speakers but I found that point no big deal.
Good sound on high treble and mid bass speakers. Not good for deep bass.

Summary: Great sound like what you expected from Bose System. Pricey. Do not have a deeper bass as expected from small speakers. Need additional power Subwoofer to make the system complete. Very good in high treble and mid bass with the Active Equalizer that comes with it. Need facing walls for the speakers to sound good.
Summary: These speakers have been roundly panned by at least fifteen audiophile magazines for over thirty years. They famously lost a lawsuit in the Supreme Court to Consumer Reports. Their bass and treble frequencies are artificially boosted, their imaging is non-existant, and their annoying resonances at particular frequencies are the stuff of legend. If critical listening isn't your thing why on earth would you shell out this kind of money?

Summary: I own two pair of Bose 901 Series VI speakers. I run 4-12" subwoofers at 100hz on down and run the 901's at 100hz and above. Considering their size, there is no other speaker that can compare with the output that Bose 901's have. I wire each pair of 901's in parallel and use a Peavey IPR 3000 amp (with built in 100 HZ crossovers) at approx 840 watts per pair of 901's.
Summary: I see alot of comments that only mid range can be reproduced by 901's. If you find yourself in this conundrum (i didn't say i could spell), #1 901s require the equalizer to operate properly, #2 you have to be intelligent enough to adjust the equalizer properly #3 901s have certain placement requirements to get the full benefit from these fabulos speaker system.
Summary: It's been 20+ years that I took home a pair of 901s on a week's approval. First let me state a few facts: I listen almost exclusively to classical music, had an inexpensive amp although I rarely listen to music louder than a moderate level (9 to 10 o'clock volume position) and they were in a small room (roughly 1300 cubic feet) with a very low ceiling.
