    Bose *****!

    I have an 89 Maxima with a Bose system.Well needless to say it sounds like crap.I just got my new Pioneer Mp3/cd player today.I am lost just trying to think about what to do. I am gonna replace all the factory speakers but how in the hell do I hook the cd player up?I know I gotta bypass all the amps on the factory speakers.This whole process sounds like a pain.The local audio shop said they would hook up my cd player and put my aftermarket speakers in for $85.But I feel like they are gonna stick me with some hidden charges and would rather do it myself because I think I have enough car audio knowledge to figure this out with a little help.I would really like to get this done before my eD 16kv.2 and Nine.2 amp comes in.Anyway any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Have them do it.....you sound way too nervous to do an install yourself.

    Re: Bose *****!

    Well the biggest problem is finding the amps. I'm pretty sure though that a lot of bose systems have individual amps for each speaker? I may be way off though. Rip off the doorpanel or whatever is necessary and see where the wire goes, trace it until you find an amp. 85 really doesn't seem like a bad price for a hu install and speakers, but yeah you are right there is a good chance they'll stick you with a convertor or something that really isn't necessary. All it is goign to require is time and patience. I would vote do it yourself as alearning experience. You'll know your car a lot better, you could even intall your amp wiring while you are at it, so when your stuff shows up it'l only take 20 minutes to install.

    Re: Bose *****!

    Yeah thats a good idea about running the amp wire at the same time The amps are located right beside the speakers in my car.My main concern is hooking the cd player up to the bose wires and stuff.I cant wait to get that junk out of my car.

    Re: Bose *****!

    i think the amps are integrated into the 6x9's on the rear deck... look on the bottom of your speakers in the back and see if there is a big black thing on the bottom with 4 wires going into a plug... if so... when you remove the speakers... you remove the amp... bypassing is easy... the plug has two big... and two small... the 2 small ones are speaker wires... same in the front... the plug is on top of the big black enclosure... it's 4" speakers in the front doors...



    Been out of this for a longgg time...
