Work with what you have, not with what you don’t.
Coming to terms with a set of Series II Bose 901’s, under duress. (The 41 year old EQ capacitors are noisy.)
Dialing in my ear, speakers, system and room has meant exploring the spectrum with unconventional set-ups.
Limitations within any dynamic system can reveal flaws and, to a degree, reinforce strengths. After a week of really hammering the 901’s the thought occured that these things are in the sonic comfort zone of 45’s. Swift confirmation was provided via the headphone out of the Audiotronics and a lone Bose swung around to have the 8 speakers firing forward. Plenty of MONO omph at hand. You can do some work like this.
