Question about Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker

1 Answer

Speakers blown? I have 10 Bose speakers for a small health club. I kicked something on the stereo and got a loud shriek. Now, 6 of the speakers aren't working. I reset the stereo. The speakers are roughly 1 foot across and less than a year old. I read about measuring the resistance but am uncertain where I would put the tester. No fuse right? Warranty? Help?

How do I replace a speaker on my Bose Acoustimass 10 subwoofer?


The speaker probably needs not be replaced, only reconed or reconditioned. I would look into simplyspeakers.com or similar to get it done and then do the remounting yourself.

I just purchased a pair of Bose 201 V used speakers. When the receiver is on the right speaker makes a low intermitment bass vibration.


Absent audio input, speakers are silent. It's NOT the speakers.

Check how your speaker wires are routed. They may be picking up airborne electrical impulses from something. Also check your signal cables.

`Which ampliphier is compatible for my Bose 901 series 6 with equilazer.


Ideally, an amplifier or receiver should have either a "Tape Monitor" selector switch and Tape Input & Tape Output jacks, OR have Preamp Output & Amp Input jacks to enable insertion of the Bose Active equalizer into the circuit before the amplifier stage. Power requirements - according to the 901 Series VI manual:

"Your 901 speakers are designed to work compatibly with receivers or amplifiers rated from
10 to 450 watts per channel."

If you have questions not answered by the manual, you can contact customer service at The Bose Corporation in Framingham, MASS toll free at:

I hope this helped & good luck!

My left side speaker is not working i suspect fuse blown but where is the fusebox situated on my BOSE 901series III.


There is no fuse in a 901. Have you swapped channels, speakers, bypassed the EQ to ensure it or its pathing has no part in the failure?

Bose 901 Series IV BLOWN?


Yes, if you hear any sort of crackling sound, that means it has blown. Given the cost of these units, I would suggest repair. I would also suggest contacting Bose, as many of their products have a lifetime warranty, so you might be in luck. Although, blowing your speakers because you made your speakers go louder than they were supposed to, is no covered in the warranty.

You can approach the repair in 2 ways..
1) Send in to Bose for repair - suggested
2) Take it to a service center, and see if they will be able to recone the speakers or replace. Most service centers are familiar with the 901 series, so you should be ok. If they have no idea what your talking about, stay away.

But yes, they are worth fixing.

What kind of amplifier and other accessories are recommended for bose 901 speakers


I would recommend a high power 2-channel amplifier, minimum 16 guage speaker wire, and of course the Bose 901 active EQ that matches the series of your speakers. I use a Yamaha mx-830 power amp & cx-830 pre amp 170 wpc They (Bose) claim that they're unlimited power handling, But if you use a amplifier with to little power and overdrive it to make it louder, you could damage the speakers or amp. With my 170 watt class A amp,the 901 series 6 will blow wind across the room. Go with the best amp you can afford! best for money- Yamaha,Denon,Onkyo!

Do all speakers have fuses? I may have blown one of my Bose 151 outdoor speakers, but can't find a fuse inside.


Unfortunately many speakers do not have fuses. Most likely the voice coil has opened up inside the speaker itself. You can either get a replacement driver (speaker) or re-cone the one you have. In any case, the driver needs to be replaced.

You can verify this if you use an ohmmeter. With an 8 ohm impedence speaker, the reading should be about 6 ohms. If you read a higher number or infinity, the coil is bad.
