Here's my 'good set' of these things, I'm pretty sure I also have a 2nd pair someplace that have led a much harder previous life than these two. They are BOSE model 2.2, in distinct LEFT and RIGHT wedge shaped simulated walnut veneer cabinets. These are serial numbers 173893 (right) and 176505 (left) both with a build date code of 88945. (meaning maybe 1988/89, or 1994? I dunno...?)
The other set of these I'm remembering (buried somewhere in the basement?) have rotten surrounds on their main drivers (at least) and much more cabinet wear, but this pair remains intact and original -- presumably also fully functional. (but I haven't tested *any* of them)
I don't actually have a large amount of experience (or opinion) with any models of BOSE speakers, but one thing I think I've learned about them over the years is that people, in general, either LOVE THEM TO DEATH (over all others) or THOROUGHLY DETEST THEM -- usually for the same basic sorts of reasoning that they are (one way or the other) expen$ive, and UNIQUE, both in style and engineering. Go figure...
