    Bose (gulp!) question

    Bose sent me a pdf service manual for the series I 901 that shows exactly how to remove the grills even how to fashion a tool for clean removal of the staples. Pretty cool, they also mentioned what I already suspected..the series I and II have cloth surrounds and I should expect to find them in...

    Bose (gulp!) question

    LanceJ, from what I understand now the Series I and II both had cloth surrounds that had a longer life. Series III and up went with the foam. I haven't used these speakers in years now and with all the talk about rotting surrounds I wanted to have a peek before using or selling. I can't sell...

    Bose (gulp!) question

    I was prepared for the Bose Bashing but I still need to know if anyone has removed the grill cloth from an early Series I and how to go about it. I don't want to start prying and mess things up if I don't have to. I'm not much of a Bose fan any longer but since I do own these I figure I'll...

    Bose (gulp!) question

    I'm the original owner of a set of Bose Series I 901s and would like a little information about repairing them. I just read somewhere, on eBay I think, that the series I speakers didn't have the rotting foam surrounds like all the subsequent models have and should last a 'lifetime'. Anyway I'd...

    recessed connection box

    The links were perfect, Wayne. Thanks much. I'm waiting for email response from the sites now. I like the totally flush style with the cables exiting through the closed cover. I'd even like to apply a veneer to it somehow to match for floor better. Thanks everyone for your help

    recessed connection box

    Is there a specialized recessed type HT connection box that I can recess into a wooden floor next to my sub woofer for it's power and signal connections?? It's in the middle of a very large room and I don't want to string wires across the floor. Big enough for a double duplex in there for AC...

    Tivoli Audio

    Torgny, about 6 months ago we bought a Trivoli Model 1 from Vanns to replace our old sqawky GE kitchen radio. We thought it looked cool and based on reviews only we spent the $99 on it with no regrets. It's small but has the big sound you get from properly engineered speaker venting along with a...

    600 sq ft room...Satellites or book shelves??

    All we have so far is the Yamaha and TV as I mentioned plus a Toshiba DVD player, CD player and VCR. I'd say it will be used almost 99% for movies at low to moderate volume levels. We're interested more in the clarity of sound at moderate to lower volumes and not so much how loud we can stand...

    600 sq ft room...Satellites or book shelves??

    My HT room is 600 sq ft but we don't have any speakers, yet. Wife says small speakers and I always do what I'm told. The satellite speakers I've read about so far are recommended for no more than 400 sq ft which is closer to our actual seating area in the big room. I'd still like to do the...

    Speakers for my Yamaha RX-V660

    I'm surprised no one here could help me with this. Turns out pretty easy according to my granddaughter. For everyones' information in case this comes up again when there is no sub output on the receiver connect the sub woofer to the 'B' speaker terminals and the internal bass amp pics out the...
