Excellent product better than any well known equalizers.

Very pleased with this purchase of Bose Series V speakers
Bought these speakers because I had a pair of series iv back in early 80's and absolutely loved them.I was in colo. in the army and had an old Yamaha wood case receiver that had plenty of power to push them. Was on the second floor playing a clip of a helicopter and people outside were looking around for the helicopter. LOL. I now have them paired with an older set of Pioneer CS-903's that have plenty of bottom end and everything sounds awesome. Very pleased with this purchase.
Sound great powered with a 145 watt per speaker amp at max volume!
These used speakers are replacing my front Bose 601 Series 2 which are now my rear speakers. I am using them in a 5.1 surround sound setup with an Onkyo 9.2 TX-NR5008 AV Receiver pushing 145 watts per speaker. As I hoped because these speakers are rated at 450 watts, I can max out the volume without coming close to causing any harm, and much to my delight any distortion, crackling, hum, or other such undesireable effects. A demo I did for my sister using a KISS concert DVD was impressive when I maxed the volume and I could not be heard while shouting to her 3 feet away while yet hearing clean crisp sound. Hearing them at max volume just brings a smile to everybodys face in the room. These speakers have been on my wish list ever since I heard a demo of the Series 1 in a stereo shop way back in the 70's. I am running the equalizer through the Tape Deck input and output of my receiver, and my Tape Deck through the equalizers Tape in/out. I am hearing things I have not heard before on my recorded music, and while watching TV and DVDs I find myself occasionally checking my home phone for incoming calls when in fact it's these speakers. Very faithful sound reproduction at all volumes and there isn't a bad place to hear stereo anywhere in my living room! My location of these speakers are on the pedistals designed for them, but not in a desired location as I just don't have the room, so they sit on my rear projection TV. I am re-discovering my album collection again. For $500 they have been a great investment and I am glad I finally pulled the trigger on them.Read full review
BOSE 901s are incredible
The Bose 901 series V is the best speaker I have heard. The highs are crystal clear and the base response is phenomenal. If you are buying used you have to aware that the foam around the speakers deteriorate. You can buy kits like I had to which is good but I opted for the cloth and actually think the foam gives a better response.
Bose replacement speaker works great.
I had a blown speaker and used one for replacement and it worked really great. I used it in a 402. I took alook and this was less expensive than other replacement speakers but I am 100 percent satisfied.
