Summary: Pros:Are capable of great bass and OK treble when powered with the right equipment.Can handle lots of power. Tough and long lasting. Cons:Material components need to be upgraded to be legit for the 21st century - I mean paper cones - Come on!That's so old tech. Still inefficient.
Summary: one of the best speakers i have brought have them for over 9YEARS sound is full detail mirange is excellent gives you a wide dispersion sound highs are not brittle bassextension is tight bass not muddy this speaker puts you in the middle of a concert where you can actually pinpoint instruments warm...
This Just In...the 901VIs love Rap, Electronica and R&B!
20 December 2011
Summary: The 901vi speakers are subwoofers with good vocal characteristics. I wish for more vibrant highs (tweeters) and a better stereo image. I was skeptical about the low octaves and BAAAMMMMM, I saw my heavy remote falling to the floor from the sofa.
Summary: Hello World, What can I say about these but they LOVE Big Power!!! I feel alot of negative reviews are created by lack of power. Really great highs and deep bottom(i turn my sub down wth 901's) the mids are also very good and wiiiide.
Summary: I owned 901 Series IV's in the 70's. Between then and 2009 I've owned more loudspeakers than I care to admit, including klipschorns and B&W 703's. I'm not saying my 901 VI's are better than those speakers in any objective way, but in my 16x18.5x8.67' room, yes they definitely are better to my ears.
Summary: Tried out a pair for almost a month and purchased a great HK 120 watt receiver to power them. I RETURNED THEM TODAY. I only listened to music from my iPod and some of it sounded really fantastic (vocal driven pop like Adele, Ben Folds; classical; choral).
Summary: I purchased these speakers because I've owned a set before. I belive that Bose makes the best speakers, I've owned sony, cevean veage samsung, but Bose has the best sound quaitly. If you haven't owned a set of Bose 901's you don't know what you are missing.
