Bose 901

 

If you like classical or jazz, the 901 freestanding speakers will provide a unique sound. Like the Bose Acoustimass lifestyle speakers (cubes), the 901 uses stereo imaging to attempt to have the sound bounce around the room. These speakers (along with...

Outstanding!! The sound is just amazing!

 

Since I knew we were getting a great product. I just wanted to complete the high sounds and direct/reflecting spot which Bose is very profound delivers the sweet spot. My subwoofer JL (Audio Fathom 113) gets the bass and the pitch perfect highs (Bose...

35 years years and still the best

 

I bought my 901's in 1973. I had to drive almost 100 miles to find them. I still use them every day and have never heard speakers I like more. They were expensive for a young guy at the time, but worth every penny. Hook those babies up to a Macintosh...

Product Specifications

The flagship 901 Direct/Reflecting stereo speakers bring the warmth, power and excitement of a concert hall or movie theater to your home. They create the mix of direct and reflected sound you hear in a live performance, to deliver a listening experience that conveys much of the emotion that only live music can evoke. 901 speakers work by reflecting most of the sound off walls and other flat surfaces, instead of aiming all the sound toward you, as conventional speakers do. With Direct/Reflecting speaker technology, anything you listen to - from the latest DVD audio to your favorite vintage records - acquires lifelike realism, because the speakers reproduce the natural concert hall balance of direct and reflected sound. The result is the Stereo Everywhere speaker performance - stereo performance that is clear and lifelike everywhere in the room, instead of in just one "sweet spot." You'll experience balanced sound throughout the listening environment, no matter where you sit or stand. Just as you enjoy beautiful music reproduction from these speakers, you can also experience thrilling home theater effects from your home theater components. These speakers are an appropriate choice for use with your surround sound receiver, and can be used in conjunction with other Bose home theater speaker options.
