I have a pair of Bose 4.2 Stereo Everywhere speakers.
Got them around 1988. I know they are 8 ohms, but I lost my manual.
I need to know the wattage. I contacted Bose 2 times and never got a response.
Anyone know the wattage? They are not the newer II version.
I have a couple 201's. If I remember correctly, they can manage 100 or 110 watts, but please don't go by that. There technical support number is 1-800-367-4008. When you call, make sure you have a half hour to spare, and a speaker phone wouldn't be a bad idea. Depending on the time you call, it could be a long wait.
Hope I was helpful.
What do you need to the know the wattage for? If it is just to try to match their wattage with that of a receiver, I wouldn't worry about it. Wattage is a very unreliable measurement in these instances. Many companies grossly over rated their power. Even then you need to look at the distortion specs and then if the wattage is a peak number or RMS.
I don't know those particualr models of bose, but I am assuming they are regular bookshelves, in which case just about receiver will drive them just fine.
Also, if you really like the Bose, you may want to leave this forum before all the bashers come in and make you change your mind about them.
