There is some problem with the timing of the changer mechanisum of the player. As it is very complicated mechanisum you should need a good reparing experence to rectify the same.The mechanisum is not properly selecting the disk 2. Try to consult the bose autorised servicing center or any trusted electronics reparing shope near you.
Since there is no single crossover for two speakers it is likely both speakers experienced the same audio trauma and blew together. Something like microphone feedback will take thenm out in a literal heartbeat.
The 301's sometimes have an element in series with the tweeters that looks like a little light bulb (or it could be a fuse, too) and it is designed to blow before the tweeters die. They're easy to find if you remove the woofer to get some maneuvering space inside. If they'rethere and blown (visible) you can either wire aroundthem and be careful in the future or get some more.
Do a web search for "tweeter protection fuse".
If the tweeters did take the hit get on eBay and find some more, plus think about installing protectors if you can't avoid excessive distortion or power going to them.
Regarding pwoer vs distortion, the latter will kill tweeters in a blink so don't think a modest amp is safer than a powerful one. The modest amp will distort sooner.
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.
The only 2 solutions are:
1. Just find an equivalent driver to replace. Re-wire new driver speakers into the enclosures. The old 201s may have had decent drivers (although probably paper cone) for back then, but now just about anything will sound as good in those particular cabinets.
2. Call Bose and exchange them for current 201 speakers (higher clarity more powerful).
Bose will give you about 30-40% off I believe on a series 5 model. They now pay for inbound and outbound shipping as well.
Determine the series from the label on the back and get yourself one or a pair (preferred, so they match sonically) of new woofers and replace the broken one. Carefully observe the + and - leads and replicate them on the replacements.
Sometimes you can snag a pair of whole speakers cheaply, too. Then you might end up with one spare 301 and one for parts. I use a single 301 IV as my Rear Surround, suspended on the wall behind my seating position. They also do well as Center speakers. The Series IV is also made of some kind of plastic composite which is bullet-prrof compared to the previous particle board models. I had one hit the floor from 5 feet up and it doesn't have a scratch. Get familiar with the models as they are all different in their tweeter arrangements. For example, the IV's are designed for corner placement with one tweeter facing inward at 45 degrees and one on the opposite diagonal corner of the box facing 180 degrees opposite the front tweeter, into the corner for a bank shot.
There is no wall mount bracket for the VCS-10. It was not designed to be wall mounted. Your best solution is to mount a 22"x8" shelf to the wall 4-6" below the TV. Make sure it is mounted sturdy enough to support 10lbs.
