Bose 601 is one of the amazing products which was quite popular in the 70s-80s.
With their innovative designs of direct and reflected sound....this is one of their finest examples after their 901.
But unfortunately after all these years it's a disappointment for the end user to keep them healthier as before even if they are well mentained and preseved nicely.
Due to ageing and effect of climatic change and moisture... parts are likely to get weeker and deteriorate eventually.
Starts with the rottening of the edge foam surround followed by the softening of the cone membrane, sagging of the spider suspension and even rusting of the speaker frames in some cases.
It's one of my friends 601 which was brought back to life recently with getting hold of the original American replacement parts.
Starting from getting the rusted frames reconditioned and installation of the recone parts. It was possible to bring back the 601 back to life. I have shared few images for friend members to see so that they don't loose hope if incidentally their favourite piece of equipment gets spoiled over time.
