Question about Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker
I assume you mean you want the 901's to be part of a multichannel audio system as the front speakers. Your controlling electronics will dictate how the 901's integrate.
The following is general high-level advice to get you on your way. I have 901's in my 7.1 A/V room, so it CAN be done.
Bear in mind that 901's require exclusive use of any amplifier they use. You shouldn't expect to use conventional speakers alongside them on the same amp.
The reason is that the 901's require the use of their dedicated Active Equalizer to shape the frequency spectrun to match their drivers' response curves, resulting in a flat sound output. Applying that kind of equalization to any conventional speakers will sound to sharp at the extremes and may even potentially damage them.
If your rig has Pre-Outs for the Front L&R channels you're in luck. Just task them to through the 901 EQ to whatever amp you choose to run the 901's on. Set levels and you're off and running.
If no pre-outs, it gets complicated and some compromises will need to be made. Get back to us on what your control amp/receiver is and we can continue this - or search Fixya for 901 advice. I have written a ton of these for people. One may fit you perfectly.
