Yes! When the Bose ~Steve901 first came out that was the amplifier of choice -like the McIntosh classic amps. The 901s have their own equalizer as that speaker system is a phased-array,

What's will be the power output of a power amp ideal for Bose 901 Series VI if the specs say it's compatible wt amplifiers/receivers rated from 10-450 watts RMS? Rated 250 IEC.


Depends on how loud you want to play it and how large your room is. If you have a large room and like to see how loud you can play it, go for a lot of watts. If you mostly listen to soft music, and have a small room, 10 or 20 watts is enough. There is no "optimum" for the speaker, only for you, your room, and your preferences.

Is it safe to use a power Amp wt a power output of around 640 watts/ch for Bose 901 Series VI? I was told that the there is a plus factor on the maximum power output of 450 watts.


Just because you have 640 watts capability, that doesn't mean you have to use all 640 watts. Most of the time, you will likely use 1 ot 2 watts. Don't turn it up just to see how loud it will go, and you won't have any problems.

How do I connect my bose equalizer to my pioneer amplifier


The manual is at Bose.com.

In any question regarding connections the exact models of all parts in the scenario should be defined.

"Pioneer amplifier" is not unique nor revealing. Integrated amplifer? Power amp? Tape Loops available? Pre-Outs? What's involved as a preamp?

The key thing to know is that any amplifier channels driving 901's must not drive other speakers as the Active EQ severely modifies the Line Level source input. If the EQ (or any sound processor) is used in a Tape Loop on a modern multichannel digital-audio-capable AVR, ONLY 2-channel analog sources will function when the Tape Loop is engaged; and all downstream speakers will be affected by the processing. That's par for the AVR course.

Bose 901 use in multichannel applications (which I have) will require access to Pre-Amp outputs for the chosen channels (likely the Front) and you will need to get a separate amp for the 901's, placing the EQ in series with the chosen amplifier. I currently drive mine with a Carver MT-200T.

How do you hook up the Bose 901 series VI to a Harman Kardon AVR 510 receiver?


Search Fixya for the dozens of times I have answered this type of question. The central theme is you will need a separate power amp for the 901's and use of the Pre-Outs.

    Examine your receiver to be sure it has a tape monitor loop. Receivers with a tape monitor loop will have a button or switch on the front for "Tape Monitor," and have two sets of RCA connections on the back, one labelled "Tape In," and the other "Tape Out."

    Take the two cables that are provided with the 901 speakers and insert one end of the first cable into the "Amplifier Input" jacks of the equalizer. Connect the red connector to the R input and the other connector to the L input. Connect the other end of this cable into the "Tape Out" connections on the receiver. Again, hook red to R and the other to L.

    Connect the second cable between the "Amplifier Output" jacks of the 901 receiver and the "Tape In" connections on the receiver. Follow the guidelines in Step 2 for R and L connections.

    Plug the 901 equalizer into a 120-volt electrical outlet. Your 901 equalizer is now installed.
