901 series vi speakers that came with a series iv equalizer.

I recently purchased  901 series VI speakers but came with a series IV equalizer.  Will it work or do I need a series VI?

Hello, thanks for your question, and welcome to the Bose Community Forums. Happy to help out where we can.

 

Regrettably, the 901 IV equalizer is only compatible with the 901 III and 901 IV systems. To also note, depending on if you have the 901 VI v1 or 901 VI v2 system, only the 901 VI version 2 equalizer can be used with 901 VI version 2 speakers. The driver material of the version 2 speakers is different from the 901 VI speakers without the "ver 2" designation. I hope that this helps.

How do I tell which version I have?  Is it marked on the speakers?

Thanks for posting and reaching back out to us Kedcad, 

 

You will be able to check this by obtaining your serial number for the speaker and entering it here.

 

If you are unsure where your serial number is you can find this on the bottom of the speaker near the terminal cup. You will also be able to see the name of the speaker on the base also. 

 

Please do let us know if you have any other questions.
