The 601's, have great balance and ....

....(Side note; The 601 series II and III's are equally decent sounding, HOWEVER are a 'nightmare' to pack adequately for safe shipment. So much of a nightmare, that unless you have the ORIGINAL packaging I don't recommend it! The tweeters in the series II & III protrude out of the top of the cabinet and have to be protected in such a way that none of their packaging can be allowed to touch them in transit. If it does it is likely that the top grill frames will be destroyed. That either requires the grills and all the top components to be removed, packed and shipped separately and then re-installed upon arrival (probably not practical), or as we did on the last pair of series II's we had, custom and very expensive packaging designed so that nothing could touch the top of the speakers, even if dropped on their tops. This is NOT typically going to be something that very many packers are going to be capable of. Due to the amount of requests we get for replacement grills and tweeter mounts, I am confident that most that are shipped by 'individual' sellers or packed by folks inexperienced in packing Bose 601 Series II's and III's are damaged or destroyed. We have a few thousand dollars worth of packing materials and 15+ years of experience and it took us 6 'man hours' to pack the last pair of series II's! The Original series do NOT have these issues as the cabinets come all the way to the top.)

This is a 'One Owner' pair and we purchased them with an entire 'high end' audio system from a military serviceman who brought them back from overseas. They have been well cared for.
Our speaker tech has completely gone through and 'Certified' these. These have been completely gone through, including having the foam surrounds replaced on all 4 woofers. All tweeters in perfect working order. We also removed the lower aluminum trim that was attached with staples and reattached w/ adhesive foam to eliminate vibration. The tweeters mounts were also tightened to eliminate any acoustic anomalies. The speakers were cleaned inside and out. New driver gasketing installed to improve factory seals. Beautiful, real walnut wood veneer cabinets give a fresh rub down with.....

 Again if you're after a pair of "Vintage" Bose, the 601 are, in our opinion, the best sounding of the classic Bose designs.
This pair especially excels on most classical and jazz styles. Again, the 'Real' wood Walnut grain veneer, cabinets in near NEW shape as are the grills. The cabinet corners and edges all sharp and crisp. The original grill frames solid and cloth in beautiful condition and required only minor cleaning. And remember, we have just replaced the foam surrounds on all 4 woofers, for trouble free service. Following the above work, we completely tested them with both recorded material, PN 20-20k and swept them with our AF generator from 20-20,000 Hz (actually all 4 woofers were independently swept after re-foaming and prior to re-installation as well the entire speaker once re-assembled) and feeding them with the output from our Hafler P-225 Pro Power Amp, looking for any vibrations or other anomalies....

BOSE 901 SERIES I

for Shop Use
Circa 1975-77

Classic and sought after Bose 901, Series I (originals) Stereo speakers. These are the speakers that made Bose famous. Designed around Boses' "Direct Reflecting" audio principle. Utilizes 9, 4" - 1 Ohm drivers. When placed correctly there is one front firing driver (the direct aspect) and 8 rear firing drivers (the reflecting aspect). One great thing about the Series I is that all the drivers utilize non-deteriorating cloth suspension instead of the deteriorating foam used in the later series versions. These were designed to create the most "Life Like" concert experience. These are also very durable from a power handling standpoint. While they are designed to be used with their included Bose 901e, Active EQ system, you may utilize any EQ with more that satisfactory results. All drivers work and sound fine! Tested for all frequencies with a sweep generator. There are some minor to fairly serious cosmetic issues with this pair. The real Walnut wood veneer have some dark rings from something being set on top of them and a damaged corner.  One of the connection terminals is bent mildly but this doesn't affect the operation at all (see lower photos). We thought about keeping them ourselves to use as we didn't mind the damage, but there are likely a few of you out there that would appreciate them just as much and also not think the cosmetic issues are a big deal, or already know how to improve the looks of them with some "elbow grease". The original Linen / Burlap woven grills in near new shape. If you are looking for a vintage Bose speaker system then here you go. You won't be disappointed. Each cabinet measures 13"h x 20.5"w x 13"d and weigh 36 lbs each unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty ( excluding problems due to under / over powering).
Speakers as photo'd only.

 Classic and sought after Bose 901 Stereo speakers, Series III's. First truly complete pair of series III's we've had in 13 years. These are the speakers that made Bose famous. Designed around the Bose "Direct Reflecting" audio principle. Utilizes 9, 4" / 1 Ohm drivers. When placed correctly there is one front firing driver (the direct aspect) and 8 rear firing drivers (the reflecting aspect). One great thing about this pair is that we just installed fresh new surrounds on all 18 drivers, and we opted for the more expensive,   non-deteriorating cloth suspension instead of the deteriorating foam used in the Series III and above originally. These were designed to create the most "Life Like" concert experience from an audio system. 901's are also very durable from a power handling standpoint. They are designed to be used with their included Bose 901e, Active EQ system. This unit will connect into any pre-amp / receiver via a simple tape monitor or Pre-Post loop. All drivers work and sound fine! Tested for all frequencies with a sweep generator. The real Walnut wood veneer cabinets are in great shape with only minor wear. Cabinets just had a fresh coat of lemon oil. The original Linen / Burlap woven grills in near new shape. If you are looking for a vintage Bose speaker system then here you go. You won't be disappointed. As shown in the photos they also come with the original and optional, Bose / Canadian made Deco stands. Also includes a copy of the original owners manual and original "cut sheet". Each cabinet measures 13"h x 20.5"w x 13"d and weigh 36 lbs each unpacked. The stands are 18" tall. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty ( excluding problems due to under / over powering).
