The chances of both Bose 901's not working at the same time- is very slim. I would first lean towards looking at the Sansui integrated (I'm assuming), amplifier to see if that is actually outputting sound. Have you tried connecting the Sansui to another set of speakers?

Also:

1) What model number Sansui do you have?

2) Is the Bose 901 EQ connected properly?

3) When was the last time the system was used?

Let me know and we can proceed.

Over ten years. I thought it might be a fuse or something

Can you reply back to the FULL info request so I can help you?

Hard to say what it is without specifics. Troubleshooting relies on details. So I would need you to elaborate with as much detail as you can.

1) What model number Sansui do you have?

2) Is the Bose 901 EQ connected properly?

3) Can you try a different set of speakers so we can see if the speakers or the receiver are even the problem here?
