re: 301

I have what appears to Bose 301 series 1. tag info says copyright 1975-1977.
it has baffle and one tweeter.Cannot find any info on these. any help would be appreciated.

re: 301

If the speaker has 1 Tweeter and a adjustable baffle then you do indeed have a Bose 301 Series 1 speaker. The Series 2 had 2 Tweeters and no adjustable baffle. The others Series had different designs and enclosures and are easier to identify.
You can download the service manual from this site.

re: 301

Normally not a fan of Bose, the 301's are an exception. Mine are the original 301's...don't think the newer models are a whole lot different. This is sleeper in the Bose line...The right size for a book self speaker. It is speaker that uses direct and reflection of sound off the wall so speaker placement is critical. I myself use them in a small den on speaker stands so volume levels are not too high(they could go much higher if one was so inclined). 3 tweeters with an 8 inch woofer is just about right in a small to mid size room. They compare quite favorably to my Snell K's which are in another room.
