Question about Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker
I have bose 901 series 6 speakers ( set of 2) with active qualizer. As I was shifting house, i had to keep them in storage for about 9 years....Recently, I had set it up,as per instructions of course, but i found that my speakers got damaged (a few of the internal speakers are still good & original) when i tried to play them. I repaired the damaged ones locally. Th speaker coils are not the original ones used by bose. they are normal speaker coils..Now I want to know , if i connect the speakers directly to the amplifier without using the equalizer, will my amplifier be overloaded / underloaded? I suspect that my equalizer may be faulty. I am afraid that if i set it up as before, the speakers will blow again...
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.
I would NOT forgo the EQ.
