Summary: If you don't care about high fidelity sound, the full spectrum, but only the midrange, buy these speakers. Otherwise you should keep looking. There are better choices out there than these even if you think they are cheap. You will need the equalizer, which most sellers do not sell with the speakers.
Summary: I got these to add to a pair I had in one stereo system. If you are willing to experiment w/ speaker placement the results can be sweet and I find them to be a great value (on ebay). If you don't feel like dropping $10K on speakers close your eyes and try a few of these.

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: Bose 901 Series IV Direct Reflection Loudspeaker. Perhaps the most successful, and prolific loudspeaker design ever produced. The 901 represents the career work of Dr Amar G. Bose Phd and contains some of the most innovative and clever out of the box thinking of any product of its type ever...
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.
