For stereo only, anything pushing a good 100 watts (for real). I use a Carver MT-200.

If you want to use it in a mulitchannel home theatre setup you'll have to have a dedicated amp for it in addition to an AVR for the other channels and control.

Look around Fixya for the dozens of posts I've made in this area. One of them should work for you.

`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!

Trying to hook up bose 901 v to sansui 8080db is


Just remove the Pre-Out to Main In jumpers and connect the Active Equalizer there. This way it will affect only the power output to the amp and speakers but not to any of the Tape Loops. If you need more, look around on Fixya for 901 advice and you'll find about a million posts by me for many scenarios, including multi-channel.

Bose 901 no sound


Give a little bit more info about your rig. What amp, how connected (I assume you ARE using the Active EQ in a Tape Monitor loop or between the pre-amp and amp), Both speakers failing, just one? What works? Did it ever work?

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!

Bose 901 and Tube amp


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,

No. Active Equalization is required for the 901's and not to be used with any non-901 speakers.

You may connect an additional amplifier to the Rec Out or Line Out from your existing receiver.
