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.
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
Summary: After reading some of these reviews I have to put my three cents in being a long time Bose owner. I first bought my 901s series IV in 1982 at anover seas Exchange for under $ 800 new, which I power with some Marantz Esotec amps which put out about 150 rms.
Summary: Bose 901 VI have been on the market for quite some time know. We read good and bad reviews. But I guess it's a question of many aspects that influence in every each individual opinion. These speakers are very boomy. Of course if you go to a jazz concert and listen to the digital drums.
Summary: I'll admit that I'm a Bose fan. After more than 20 years of enjoying my 901 Series V's I think I'm hooked. I have moved these things all over the world and replaced amplifiers twice. I now drive them with a Sony STR DE-875.
Summary: I actually own Bose 301 speakers and they are 5 star why do people scoff 901 speakers because of their technology are you a dumbass? the sound matters and they combline direct reflect and acousticwave tech.
