OK, let me start out by saying I’m in no way some kind of Bose fan or anything like that, so please no anti-Bose rants, because you’d just be preaching to the choir. I passed by a garage sale, and decided to stop by. Off to the side, covered in dust and spider webs were a pair of Bose 901 series 2 speakers. The person hosting the garage sale saw me looking at them and said he would sell them to me for $5. I was thinking about it when he changed his mind and said I could just go ahead and take them for free. After hearing a set of Bose AM-15 speakers (that cost $1500+ ) I promised myself I would never buy Bose speakers… looks like I was able to keep that promise, but now I have a pair of these speakers anyway. Putting aside my dislike of Bose, I decided to give them a shot. One thing I noticed is that they were made in 1976, which appealed to my interest in collecting vintage speakers (have a pair of JBL L150’s, and many more in my collection already). Taking off the covers I noticed a total of 9 speakers in each cabinet. When I tried them, I noticed that they seemed to excel in midrange but lack in the low’s and high’s; And they seemed to handle lots of power fairly well. So my question is what do you think I should do with them? And what would they be good for? Upon researching them on the internet, I found that they come with an equalizer that I did not get at the garage sale… and that without the equalizer, they would not sound good. Is it possible to use some other kind of equalizer to perform a similar function? I’m not sure how long Bose has been producing bad speakers, and I know that most companies (JBL for example) produced totally different kinds of speakers now than they did in the 70’s… so I’m just not really sure what I’ve got here. Any help would be great.
