    Half Bose or full Bose?

    Evening guys,

    Ive just been given a parrot msi9100 as a birthday present, went to fit it today and wasn't as simple as I thought!So it's still in box!

    How can you tell if you have full Bose amp system or half amp system as I believe I need another wiring harness gggrr (£50)
    i have single din Concert HU with iPod connection in glove box.

    Or does anyone know how to do it without having to buy new harness? If so talk to me like I'm 10 year old...step by step lol

    Cheers guys

    If the Bose logo is on the speaker grilles then you have Bose - which is fully amplified.

    If there's no Bose logo on the speaker grilles then you have the non-Bose system - which only has an amplifier for the rear speakers with the front speakers connected directly to the head unit.

    P.S. There's no such thing as half Bose.
