I received my order of a pair of replacement woofers from our Bose 501 speakers a few days ago. Upon installation they looked a bit different than the originals but seemed to be better. They have a heavier magnet and more throw than the the originals I took out. Upon powering the new ones up I was absolutely blown away. I’ve owned these 501’s since they were new (1983) and they have never sounded this way. WOW! These replacements knock the socks off the originals. Every since our 501s were new the original woofer seemed to have problem with the bobbin knocking the magnet under heavy load. It sounded really bad! Your replacements have none of this problem. They create “punch” like I’ve never heard from the 501s. Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say!
Thank you very much for offering these great speakers. They have made our Bose 501s sing (and now properly) again.
