    In college (late 1970s) a guy in our dorm had 901s powered by a Marantz 2325 receiver. Later on he got tired of them, built an outboard electronic crossover for them, modified a pair Radio Shack Minimus 7 (the ADS 200 clones) and biamped the system using a Stereo 70 for Radio Shacks and kept the 901s as sub-woofers. The system sounded surprisingly good.
    Still amazes me how many decent stereo system there were in the dorms in college back then.

        Ha! It's clear to me that you guys don't know about the hidden secrets of how to make good sound out of the 901's! The first rule is precisely that:" DO NOT FOLLOW BOSE INSTRUCTIONS. Now, seriously. The first thing to do is to play it backwards and away from the corners as they suggested. #2 would be to make the eq revision and let me tell you; once you do it is like having a different set of speakers...anyway, who cares? Bose it is, what it is. Just marketing well done but you can make them sound better if you take your time. J Gordon Holt was the first one who talked about this "tricks". I learned from him...
