Bose 601 Main / Stereo Speaker Floorstanding Speakers


IMO, not really a 601, which used to mean 6 speakers in each cabinet. I have a pair of 601 series 3, love them. ( even all by themselves ) 2 8" woofers, 4 high/mid tweeters. My rating is for the older 601 series 3. circa 1985.

Bose 601 Floorstanding Speakers


To start with the fact i always kept my hands off Bose because of the critics in most of the reviews that can be found. As i could buy a bose 601 series III set for about 50 euro's from someone, who even warned me not to buy them, i gave it a go.
