My 94 maxima came stock with bose speakers. They sound ok but i want better. Is it true with bose speakers i have to re-run all the speaker wires throughout my whole car?

You need to bypass the internal amp before you can replace the stock speakers...

In my car, the internal amp was just a block mounted to the bottom of the motor on the rear passenger side speaker.

The Bose amps are attached to the speakers in that car. You don't have to run new speaker wire to them unless you want to upgrade the wire size. You just have to find the input wires at the Bose amp (and tell them apart from the power and ground wires) and extend them to your new speakers.

Yeah theres a harness that goes to the back of the car (thats where my bose amp was in my maxxy).
Go to maxima.org and you should be able to find a diagram of the colors and what speaker it goes to.
In mine I just used a diagram and cut the wires on the harness.

Maxima.Org will have all the info you need.

Although the moderator over there tends to get a bit cranky....

also you relize that the bose speakers are probably 2 ohm, which is not recomended to run off a aftermarket deck..
