Question about Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker

Bose 901 VI speakers used with sub woofer and Bose mo. 141 rear speakers

I just bought a pair of 901 classic series VI speakers for $100.
but no equalizer for them.
this is what i have to work with
Sony str-DE525 reciever
Bose model 141 shelf speakers
fisher ws-c424 center speaker
realistic 12 in. sub woofer
i realize i have to buy the equalizer for the 901's
but the manual states i have to have a separate amplifier for the other speakers.
i cannot afford to buy another amplifier so i can use my sub and the other speakers.
is there a simple solution to this?
i do not know ANYTHING about stereo equipment!
p.s. it took me hours to set this up in the first place with some other cheapo speakers for the front pair.

Adding Subs to a Bose 901 system


The Bose system has sound that is unmatched, the 901 with the equalizer is amazing. I have done what you are thinking of doing, the speaker runs 5ohms giving more power to the coils, adding a sub will color the sound and will not give the desired results, the 901 equalizer may be damaged with the modification of the sub, not recommended.

Not sure of how to wire these speakers ( internal ) Bose 901 series iv


Found on Google Search: "bose 901 internal wiring" You must first identify which series you have. The first two series were acoustic suspension, and used nine 8 ohm drivers in a series/paralel configuration. Series III through VI used nine .9 ohm drivers all wired in series. Series III and IV had an additional terminal for use only with the Bose Spacial Control Receiver. Series III through VI are easy to identify, as there are three ports sticking out the back of each enclose. The 1st two series have no ports.

I just purchased 2 used pairs of Bose 901 series III. The problem is they came with just 1 active EQ. Can I all 4 with just one EQ. Thank Tyler


Yes, if they're all on the same 2 amplifier channels.

If you're pondering some kind of employement in a multichannel system look around fixya for the dozens of post I've made addressing various scenarios. Keyword: Bode 901

Hey i just bought a pair of bose 901's and was wondering what system would provide enough power but still cheap and mp3 compatable???


Keeping in mind that the 901's and multichannel recievers won't work unless you use an outboard amp for them, that should open up the choices pretty wide. But your MP3-compatible AVR MUST have front channel pre-outs. Any solid 100 watt x 2channel amp will drive them.

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.

I believe there are two nuts on each post. The first one locks up against the firewall and the second secures the speaker wire against the first nut. Tighten the lower nut snug against the enclosure.

I have a set of 901 IV with no equializer, I am wondering if the equaliser for bose 901 series VI will work?


It will work, but theoretically less than 100% optimally as far as frequency balance; it would be a whole lot better than not having one at all.

Now, if you're contemplating using 901's in a multichannel environment, you have but to ask and I can provide that solution, too. Clue: you'll need a separate 2-channel amp for the 901's.

If you have the harmon kardon receiver, check out this reasonably priced system. You can actually find it cheaper than at this website but I have these speakers and, when paired with the Klipsch sub-woofer, it makes movie watching an unbelievable experience.

Best amps for bose 901


You need an amplifier with at least 200 wpc to get the most out of your BOSE. Look into getting a NAD, ADCOM or CARVER amplifier. I prefer CARVER myself. I am running a CARVER M-500T(251 wpc) on my 901's and they sound incredible.

Yes! When the Bose ~Steve901 first came out that was the amplifier of choice -like the McIntosh classic amps. The 901s have their own equalizer as that speaker system is a phased-array,
