901 Series IV Repair

I have a pair of Bose 901 Series IV speakers that I purchased in 1980.  I have not used them in about 15 years.  I hooked them up over the July 4th weekend and had faint reception of the radio station and lots of static.  I thinking the internal seals may need to be replaced due to dry rot.  Is that even possible at this point and if so, how can I obtain the parts and what is the approximate cost.  The serial number on the bottom of the speaker is only 6 digits so it would not recognize the serial number. 


Bose Product Name:  901 Series IV speakers


Country USA


Firmware Version


App Version


What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on:  Sansui G7700 120 watts/channel receiver. 

Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce:  Lots of static


What environment do you experience the issue in? Heme office


When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?  As stated above, I hadn't used the speakers in about 15 years. 


Any troubleshooting steps you took:  None as I'm not exactly sure what to do.

Hey @ngomolak,


Thank you for visiting the Bose Community. I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!


As your system was in storage for a while, you may notice a couple of differences when first plugging the system into power for the first time again. Be sure all cabling is securely connected and nothing seems to be loose or damaged.


If you continue to notice an issue, you can reach out to support in your region to look into things further. Although it's not guaranteed given the age of your system, we will see if we have the parts available to send, or if we can service your system if needed. There are alternative options in place to resolve your difficulties.
