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.

Can the 901 VI be usedoutdoors


If it was near the ocean/beach, or in the rain, I wouldn't do it. But otherwise, there should be no problem using the 901s outdoors. However, you will likely need to rotate the speakers 180 degrees, so the 8 drivers are facing the listening area, as the speakers will probably not be positioned near back/side walls and thus will not be able to take advantage of the reflective portion of the direct/reflective listening experience.

How to connect bose 901 equalizer to yamaha rx-a1000


Short answer from personal experience.

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.

Connect the Active EQ between the pre-outs and the amp input.

Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

I have the following equipment and am going crazy trying to figure out how they get connected together. I also have the Carver Multi CD player and Carver Cassette Deck which I was able to connect to the...


Get a separate amp for the 901's and the rest falls into place.

1,2, 5) Place the 901 Active EQ between the pre/main front OUT of the receiver and the TFM-55X. Attach the 901's. Keep track of the jumpers you remove from the receiver. Or replace the jumpers with RCA splitter cables so you still have pre/main connection but can share the output with the TFM.

3) Pinnacle subwoofer (self-powered?) to the subwoofer out of the receiver.

4) Bose (AMS???) 5. As surrounds on the receiver. Place the sub module toward the rear so it mates sonically and directionally with them.

What? No center speaker? I'd get something more robust with bass capabilities, like a pair Bose 301 series 1's because the tweeters face in one direction only.

Except for the amps and the cube stuff that is essentially what I have. 6.1 with full-range speakers everywhere.

901's directed to TV


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.

Can I place 901 Bose speakers directely on the floor? If not Can I use a shelf that is 18 inches distance from the floor? Thanks in advance for your answer


You can, but they will sound like **** down there. I recommend stands at least 24 inches tall, placed 24 inches away from wall for sound to reflect. I have mine hanging from ceiling for best sound.

Location for Bose speakers 901


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.

Connecting Bose 901 Series VI Direct Reflecting Speakers to JVC RX-8020VBK Receiver


in order to make those speakers sound good (if they can sound good at all) you need to use equalizer box witch came with them. If your receiver does not have tape monitor loop or preamp to amp jumpers you can not use those speakers. To be honest you do not loose much... none of this stuff is any good (sorry for bad news), but if you like those speakers (I know they have big fans, even if in HI-FI world, they not consider as good) you have to change you receiver.
