Description Technical Specs
 

Bose's 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.

Breakthrough technology for spacious performance

The introduction of the revolutionary Bose® 901 speakers in 1968 redefined the phrase “high fidelity.” For the first time, a speaker was capable of reproducing music with much of the impact, clarity and spaciousness of a live performance. Today's 901 speakers incorporate some 350 enhancements over the acclaimed original.

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 what we call 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.

Bose's best speakers for music and movies

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.

Key Features
Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology Proprietary Bose technology that blends direct and reflected sound to recreate much of a live concert's natural spaciousness. Experience stereo sound almost anywhere in the room, not just in one small "sweet spot."
Full-range drivers Each speaker has nine of these innovative, proprietary drivers to provide greater power handling than conventional speakers. You enjoy a more consistent sound field and greater clarity, resulting in a powerful audio experience.

5 of 5 Bose 901 June 15, 2014
Reviewer: Fred C. Marvin, Jr. from Windsor Mill, Maryland  
I have own Bose 901 speakers since 1979 and would not buy any other speaker system. I have went to many of the better stereo shows and have not hear anything that sounds as good as these speakers. You must take time to set them up correctly, but it will be well worth it in the end.

5 of 5 bose 901 excellence January 29, 2012
Reviewer: George Harrison from LA MESA, CA United States  
I have own my 901's since the 1970's in Cambridge Ma.   Every night club and the best social locations featured 901's hanging from the ceiling.   I love my 901's speakers - they are over 30 years and i use them every day.    This is long term excellence.   Thanks Dr. Bose.

1 of 5 For this price you can buy much better!! February 24, 2010
Reviewer: Peter Sampfield from cordova, TN United States  
I've recently listened to a pair of these one of my buddies bought and was very disappointed.  For the price he paid I figured they would sound exponentially better than any other speaker at that price point.  I was recently at an audio savvy friends house and heard a pair of B&W 684 Floor Standing speaker that he bought for $1,100 a pair. OH MY!! They blew these away.. I just don't understand why a company such as Bose who advertises how they conduct all this multi-million dollar research would sell a product at this price point without listening to some of their competitors loudspeakers..  It is beyond me.

5 of 5 The best speakers EVER! (for the price) IMHO February 8, 2010
Reviewer: Bob Pierce from Kingston, WA United States  
I have owned 901s series III, IV,V and soon to be VI.

I have carefully compared in home, store and recording studios the quality of the sound to my ear and those of professional musicians. The result is always the same; buy what sounds best to you. I like '80s metal and Glam Rock, so I don't need speakers that cover the crisp highs like someone who listens to harp music might prefer.

Find a store with a good return policy, be ready to test when you get them home and be willing to give the store a good set of reasons you do not wish the speakers if you return them. Any store selling high end audio will be VERY patient as long as you do not damage the goods (this INCLUDES the packing material!!)

Have fun and listen carefully...
