20 Most Recent Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker Questions & Answers

If there is no rca connection on the back labeled something like "external processor" then it could probably go through a tape loop. At least that's the way it used to be done last millenia. ;)

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.

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!

Depends on the shape and contents of the room. Look up "best acoustic placement of speakers" in your web browser. Good Luck!

This fully depends on the room.
If it is a simple square room, set the front speakers left and right about 2 meters from your TV, try to do the same at the back.
Point them slightly into your direction and try if this sounds good for you. If not you could try to turn them.

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.

Of course, however, since the speaker cones are paper, it would be wise to protect them from moisture (rain, pool splash, etc.) as the speaker cloth will not do this. Also, the wood used in the cabinetry is veneer and would de-laminate if exposed to moisture for extended periods.

i guess with bose but in my experience when they start skrewing up like that its time to replace them unless you are bored and want something to do and if so take it apart and start observing and see what you find.

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.

It sounds like you may have only the 901 loudspeakers, and not also the companion 901 equalizer box. You must install the 901 equalizer properly--using the tape monitor loop of the G901 receiver. If you of not, the 901 loudspeakers will perform poorly.
