The grille will come off if you try to pry it off. Then, unscrew the bad driver. Sort of new ones are sold on E-Bay for not a lot of money. Install the new driver, secure it with screws, and snap the grille back into place.

SOURCE: cannot hook eq to my receiver

The speakers will not sound right. You dont have two tape monitors on this receiver? You can simply use the tape otput to the EQ input, and then the Tape monitor input to the EQ output leads. Good Luck

SOURCE: Can I hook my TV directly up to Bose 201 speakers?

It depends on the TV audio output connections. Most TVs have low level audio outputs (RCA Jacks) that require a amp but some do have external speaker connections. You will have to refer to your manual or check the back of the set.

SOURCE: Replacement speaker (upper) for Bose double Cube.

try a music specialty store or radio shack if you want to only replace the small speakers inside the cubes. If you want to replace the whole cube, there are others out there. Look on ebay and or amazon I think the brand is JA Audio. A knock off of the bose cubes that can be used as stand alone speakers without the module.

Determine the series from the label on the back and get yourself one or a pair (preferred, so they match sonically) of new woofers and replace the broken one. Carefully observe the + and - leads and replicate them on the replacements.

Sometimes you can snag a pair of whole speakers cheaply, too. Then you might end up with one spare 301 and one for parts. I use a single 301 IV as my Rear Surround, suspended on the wall behind my seating position. They also do well as Center speakers. The Series IV is also made of some kind of plastic composite which is bullet-prrof compared to the previous particle board models. I had one hit the floor from 5 feet up and it doesn't have a scratch. Get familiar with the models as they are all different in their tweeter arrangements. For example, the IV's are designed for corner placement with one tweeter facing inward at 45 degrees and one on the opposite diagonal corner of the box facing 180 degrees opposite the front tweeter, into the corner for a bank shot.

Both tweeters on one of my Bose 301V speakers have stopped working. Is it possible that they failed together or is it likely to be a crossover problem?


Since there is no single crossover for two speakers it is likely both speakers experienced the same audio trauma and blew together. Something like microphone feedback will take thenm out in a literal heartbeat.

The 301's sometimes have an element in series with the tweeters that looks like a little light bulb (or it could be a fuse, too) and it is designed to blow before the tweeters die. They're easy to find if you remove the woofer to get some maneuvering space inside. If they'rethere and blown (visible) you can either wire aroundthem and be careful in the future or get some more.

Do a web search for "tweeter protection fuse".

If the tweeters did take the hit get on eBay and find some more, plus think about installing protectors if you can't avoid excessive distortion or power going to them.

Regarding pwoer vs distortion, the latter will kill tweeters in a blink so don't think a modest amp is safer than a powerful one. The modest amp will distort sooner.

What receiver would you recommend for bose 301 speakers? someone suggested Onkyo 7.2 Channel 3D-Ready Home Theatre Receiver HTRC270


Anything with good clean power not overdriven will sound just fine.

If you can afford them and have the space for 5 (or more) I'd highly recommend them. Matched full-range speakers will yield the best surround experience. You might not even need a sub.

I have several iterations of 301's up to Series IV and they sounded awesome as fronts but I prefer my 901's so the 301's serve aurround duty now.


The manual prescribes >>>

301: Compatible with amplifiers and receivers rated from 10 to 150 watts per channel. Rated 4 - 8 ohms

Not sure of how to wire these speakers ( internal ) Bose 901 series iv


Found on Google Search: "bose 901 internal wiring" You must first identify which series you have. The first two series were acoustic suspension, and used nine 8 ohm drivers in a series/paralel configuration. Series III through VI used nine .9 ohm drivers all wired in series. Series III and IV had an additional terminal for use only with the Bose Spacial Control Receiver. Series III through VI are easy to identify, as there are three ports sticking out the back of each enclose. The 1st two series have no ports.

Sir my speaker bose 301 series v and i connect to amplifier pioneer 5 x130 watts.also i have center speaker.bose vcs10.is this compatible to good music and movie....


If they're all Bose 301-5's then you have the rare instance of matching speakers all around, so when sounds move around the room in a movie they don't change. I'm envious because even though I have Bose 901's (front) and 301's I don't have that exact match you have. The 301 sound is very good to my ears.

I assume you have them all set as LARGE speakers in the Pioneer, since they are capable of good bass and the parameter is more about Bass response than actual size.

If you added a subwoofer (which you may not need) you might fill in the lowest bass and effects channel.

How do you access the front drivers on bose 901 iv speakers


There are staples in th corners and outside edges of the grills. They are the same color as the grills, so they are kinda hard to see. I use a sidecutters to grab them, and pry them out. Just be a bit patient, so you don't damage your grills.
