901® Direct/Reflecting® Speaker System




901® Direct/Reflecting® speaker system

Experience legendary performance from your stereo components. Our best stereo speaker, the 901® Series VI Direct/Reflecting® speaker system, brings the warmth, power and excitement of a concert hall to your home. This flagship system creates the mix of direct and reflected sound you hear in a live performance for a listening experience that conveys much of the emotion of live music.

In 1968, the introduction of revolutionary Bose 901 Direct/Reflecting® speakers redefined the phrase “high fidelity.” For the first time, a home stereo speaker was capable of reproducing music with much of the impact, clarity and spaciousness of a live performance. Today, thanks to Bose electronics research, our 901 speaker system incorporates some 350 enhancements over the acclaimed original.


Breakthrough technology delivers spacious performance. This innovative Bose sound system works by reflecting most of the sound off walls and other flat surfaces, instead of aiming all the sound toward you, as conventional stereo speakers do. Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology reproduces the natural concert hall balance of direct and reflected sound, so anything you listen to acquires lifelike realism.


The result is Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance—sound that is clear and lifelike throughout the room, rather than just one “sweet spot.” With Bose 901 home stereo speakers, you’ll experience balanced audio throughout the listening environment, no matter where you sit or stand.

Additional Features

Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology blends reflected and direct sound to re-create much of a live concert's natural spaciousness.

Active equaliser, engineered specifically for 901® speakers, balances the output of all frequencies for natural tonal balance and clarity throughout the musical spectrum.

Acoustic Matrix enclosure dramatically reduces speaker chamber noise. Hear clear, well-defined low frequencies over the entire low-frequency spectrum.

Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance produces balanced stereo sound over a wide area. The result of proprietary Bose technologies, these speakers let you enjoy balanced sound throughout the listening area, unlike conventional speakers that radiate sound mostly in a single direction.

Helically wound aluminium voice coils designed for higher durability, greater efficiency and superior power handling.
