A call to Bose confirmed that in the 2006+ models, the speakers are 2ohms.

Ok, I get asked the same questions about Bose almost once a week. This thread is meant to slow down the emails and PMs I get about this stupid hardware.

If you want to keep your Bose Headunit and replace the amp and speakers, you need this:

If you want to change you Bose headunit and keep your stock amp and speakers, you need this:
http://www.pac-audio.com/oem1kits/roemresu...for+ROEM-1+kits

You cannot change your speakers and keep the stock amp.

You cannot change the stock amp and keep the stock speakers.

You cannot change the headunit without the above adaptor.

Ok I have one for you.
I have a new 2008 350Z with the NON Bose system.
It seems to have 6 speakers LESS the subwoofer behind the seat.
I dont mind at all the behind the seat location for a sub.
I have that now in a 2003 model with Bose and it sounds just fine to me.
The 2008 seems to have to spot for a sub behind the seat but no sub.
My question is this, is there any way to use that hole or spot behind the seat to actually
mount a new sub?
Is there a way to remove that panel and then install a grill there?
Do you imagine the wirring has been ran for it?
I have a new Kenwood system to install soon and I dont mind the stock speakers as they sound fairly descent just cant handle
not having a sub. Please help.
Mike

See this .. https://www.350z-tech.com/zwiki/Rear_Panel_Removal

At step 3.1 you can see the mounting bracket for the sub. This was in my car ... and I have the base model. Go figure. No wiring. I ran my own wiring .. (put my amps there) .. why I pulled the panels.

Since my base model had the sub bracket yours may also. You would have to at least order the vented cover or mod the original. It just pops out.

I have an 08 Bose roadster and was wondering the same thing, I looked and those Infiniti speakers are discontinued. Any new or current news on some replacement front speakers? The rest of my system sounds ok but stereo separation and crispness is lacking. Tweeters sound weak. turning of audiopilot did help some.
Also, would you use the stock wires to each speaker location, or use the crossover included to drive the tweeter?
Thank you

Since this thread is somewhat dated, I wanted to check and see if this was still a good plan or is there a better way to spend my money as regards the sound system?

Thanks

I went to the local stereo/tinting shop (Mothers). Fairly well respected in
Austin. They had done a few 350z's with new audiio system and would not even quote me a price.
Too much of a PITA to mess with.
Amazing.

I've got a 2003 Z with Bose. I'm replacing the stock HU with a Pioneer avh-4400BH, the sub with an Alpine swr-1043D, adding a Kenwood amp for the sub. Here are the questions that I have.

1) What I would like to do is keep the factory amp for the 4 6-1/2s that are in the door and rear. I've read that for those who kept all of the factory bose speakers and just replaced the HU, their bose speakers came to life afterwards.

2) If 1 is true there are several questions that I need answered.
a) Are all of the factory speakers ran through one single amp?
b) If a is yes, can i still use that amp for the factory speakers?
c) If b is no, i'll assume that the sub is on it's own amp and the 4 6-1/2s are on another.
d) In either case, b or c, It appears that the speakers (4 6-1/2s) need to be 4 ohms in order to connect them to the pioneer HU, but if I use the factory amp for the 6-1/2s, this doesn't matter right?
e) I know I need the PAC module if I want to just replace the HU, but what about in this situation where I want to replace the HU, sub and add an amp just for the sub and keep the factory amp and 6-1/2s? It seems like I can just send the signal from the new HU to the module using the existing wiring without the PAC module. What do I need to consider for this?

I know most people want to just scrap the BOSE all together, but if I can just add an amp and a new sub and keep everything else, I'd rather do that if it really comes to life as those who kept them say.

I've been doing Car audio professionally off and on for about 25 years. Key in speaker replacement on a Bose system is to remember in a Bose system, the Ohm load of the speakers is either very low 2 or in a few cases 1 or very high 8. As long as your system is using 1 or 2 ohm a standard aftermarket speaker (4ohm) is fine. You just loose a little volume. In my opinion, any aftermarket speaker will sound better even if you loose a little volume. On the other side of the coin, if your stock amp is running on the 8 Ohm or higher side, the after market speakers will play for a while but it will eventually burn the amp out because you are running at a much lower Ohm load than the amp can handle. Hope this helps.
