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...

Bose 901 Pedestals


I stopped using my 901\'s after I upgraded my home audio to surround sound, but I missed the crystal clear music that the Bose 901\'s produced. I enjoy all type of music and I found that my jazz collection sounds better on the 901\'s that any other...

An Audio Classic..And A Great Value Too!


An absolute classic loudspeaker that has been around for over forty years. Praised when it first came out, but now panned by many audiophiles, I would describe it as a speaker for music lovers, more than for audiophiles - because they simply...

Excellent speaker, looks & sounds great.


There was an imperfection on the cabinet and it was not stained (painted). The 901s are great sounding speakers, sure they are better speakers but you will pay more for them. The speakers look good, especially in contemporary environment. Bass is a bit...

great stands


I\'ve owned a pair of Bose 901 Series V since 1988, and used to hang them in the corners with chains and hooks. When we moved, I just put them on the floor. These stands offer numerous advantages. They sound much better than they did when suspended and...

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.
