You could, but the boundary effect of the speaker being on the floor will change how the sound is radiated into the room and therefore make the EQ less effective. Best bet is to try to find some sort of stand (maybe even make one out of wood) that put the 901 at the same height the stand would of that came with the speaker.
The speaker and the EQ are designed and engineered as a system.
Look online, the manual for the 901 shows them hanging from the ceiling also as an option.

Optimal placement of these like speakers of any design will vary depending on room dimensions and your listening distance from them.
A good place to start with them would be the same distance apart from each speaker as they are from the listening position. In that position they should also be placed closer to a rear wall than any side wall, approximately half that distance.
Only a careful experiment with steadily increasing volume would reveal the answer. Or measure the resistance of your cobbled work to see if it sufficiently high to avoid amplifier stress.
Original Bose 901 drivers in many series' are available on eBay and other places. I would NOT mix drivers within an enclosure. They should all match in every respect. Bose typically uses some very low impedance that totals to 8-ohms as wired inside.
There are many 'golden ears' who have used 901's without the Active EQ at all or improperly configured and they have been happy with the sound. Sonic beauty is in the ear of the beholder.
Yes, you can plug your TV directly into the Bose 901 Equalizer, but you will still need to go from the EQ into an amp to drive the speakers. The Bose EQ basically is for the speakers, not the signal coming in to it. Because of the speaker design, the EQ "shapes" the sound to compensate for the speakers. Please rate my answer, thanks.
There is no direct connection between the 901's and their Active Equalizer. It is designed to be inserted between the source and the DEDICATED amplifier driving the speakers. Typically, this would be in a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver.
Tape Rec/Out to EQ In; EQ Out to Tape Play/In on the receiver. If you have a tape deck(s), it(they) would go into the back of the Bose EQ as if it was the receiver and you would use the Tape and 1/2 buttons for selection.
Or,if you have access to any other point that doesn't use the Tape Monitor, like a Pre Out/Main In jumper set, place the Equalizer there. That way it's always in front of the speakers and doesn't take up the Tape Mon.
Flip in the Tape Monitor and leave it on or the speakers will not receive the essential ACTIVE Equalization they require for proper frequency response. DO NOT place non-901's onto any amp using the Active EQ.
Like any speakers, the 901's will attach to the speaker terminals in the conventional manner.
one option that may yield results, since the bose connection to equalizer is presently not possible is to set the speaker out put on the denon for 'small' on all but the front speakers. and then set the delay for all speakers based on the distance to the amp. this should result in better audio that that with the bose eq. will work on the issue of using the eq. with the denon if you like. but, you will likely not improve on the sound with the denon set up correctly. good luck mark
