Breaking Glass wrote:Anyone Intersted in Bose 901’s. I have a pair of series VI and a pair of series III. I have re-foamed them. I have the eq for the series VI but not the III. I just stacked them and ran them off the same eq. The more you can stack the better. At one time I had tree pair stacked up run off an M4.0t. They are in good shape, the VI came from the original owners and are almost like new. I have a set of chrome stands and a set of black stands as well.
Wow, I can't believe you actually used the "B" word on this forum, Good luck to you.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!
I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

600 bucks seems to be a lot of money for firewood... just saying

I have heard them being driven by Mcintosh and few other very high end amps.... they did not have anywhere near the imaging I was expecting. They were being used in the display/demo room at Magnepan when I worked there out of high school.
Don't get me wrong here... I think they are fine for what they are, relaxed listening/backround music. They may in fact be one of the best I have heard for that purpose. For serious listening however they just come up short.

Friend of mine had them in his house that had concrete block walls and it sounded good but when he moved to his newer house it was made with wood and the 901's responces were dull and flat.
I have Bose 301 hooked up in my REDNECK BAR at the treadmill. Watching music video makes a treadill less challenging.
They sound good to me. I got them in a pawn shop, and see no reason to replace them because of anything I might read on the web.
