Assuming all the above info is factual (always a daring endeavor!), it is new to me that some Bose were different L/R. Perhaps this was the model(s) (IV) that had the width control (only on the Bose receiver)? The "original" 901 (series I, II) were sealed box and did use 3 sets of drivers selected for slightly different resonances. I don't plan to be so picky. The series III onward are ported, really different speakers entirely. There is some compatibility within each type. As far as I know, the EQ will work for series I, II. Similarly III, IV. And V, VI.

Finally I did feel a little bad trashing the cabinets. But, it's an experiment (that failed!) and I am salvaging the parts.

Since there is only one wiring diagram for each series it seems the L/R is either just a sticker, or the front driver was offset a little?

Looks like you have a series I or II? So that's the 8 ohm drivers correct?

EDIT: I zoomed in on the pic to see Series II so it a 3 drivers in series set with the 3 sets paralleled.

Don't understand why there is a left vs right cabinet. Seems like it should be symmetric.

You learn something new everyday. I have to ask though, where did that info come from?

Some Bose speakers have the left and right speakers configured differently.
They do that now electronically with their wave radios. Makes the sound extra bigger!

They do that with their Wave Radios with two different drivers. It's not a stereo unit.

Agreed- his cropped photo to show the combined response of the bass unit and sats is misleading, and plenty of obvious errors about what comprises quality loudspeakers.

And bose is trash, nevertheless.
