Bose 901 Series IV Equalizer #202245

A bit different from the run of Series I and Series II that I usually see, I got to fix up this Bose 901 Series IV Active Equalizer which was sent to me from Austin, TX. The Series IV was sold from 1978-1983 and its construction reflects this.

The PCB on this model is single-ended, so can be completely removed from the chassis.

Bose Active Equalizer Model 800 #003833 Repair

I just finished a new project over at Rain City Audio – Bose Active Equalizer Model 800 #003833 Repair

Those Bose Active Equalizer model 800 is from the early run of the Bose 800 PA system, which is very similar to the Bose 901 direct/reflecting speaker system. The equalizer had bad noise and distortion in both channels when I got it, but after a repair works and sounds perfect and will last for a long time to come.
