Summary: I owned a pair of 901's for 8 years. This is a fantastic speaker for 2 channel applications only. i.e. Music. If you have a 5 channel surround sound system look to other speakers. I ran the 901's through an Adcom GFA555 amp and the sound was strong and crisp.

Summary: These speakers have been around for years and not much has changed in its conceptual design. My first set of Bose were the 601 series one. I still have them and they still sound great after 30 years although I did replace the bass drivers (due to foam rot).

Summary: This is one of the best speakers on the market. (for it's price) It is incredible what these speakers can do. The trick is knowing how to calibrate and position the speakers properly. A nice amp. will also be helpful. Accoustic is amazing. Overall, very nice sounding speakers for music lovers.

Summary: Amar Bose created this maverick design in 1968, and to this day, it stands as one of the finest loudspeaker systems for the home. If you love music, and don't want to get on the audiophile merry-go-round, make the 901 your choice.
Summary: i just came across a pair of very old 901s. no eqalizer. lifted a corner of the grill cover with a butter knife to check the foam surrouds,,, perfect looked up the owners manual on the bose website to see what the eqalizer thing was all about. too much taboo for me.
Summary: I owned a pair of 901s in the early 80s, they are excellent speakers in term of dynamics and their ability to fill a room with sound. Back then I used Phase Linear equipment to drive them. Phase Linear was designed by Bob Carver and were considered entry level high end at the time.
Summary: Rotel RA 980 BX 2X100W Intergraded Amplifier Monster cable Power line 2 Thorens turntable TD 166 MK VI ...... ....Bose 901 VI's looked to be happy with that..... Make sure you use a good Intergraded Amplifier and NOT a receiver
