    Replacing Bose amp in S3 8L what are my options

    I have a problem with one of the channels on my bose amp which means my passenger side front speaker is very very quiet. If I replace the bose amp what options are there for a fairly seemless, cheap, swap replacement? I'm not fussed about sound quality or anything like that, I just want all my speakers working correctly again.

    I've been told that the bose amp is an 8 channel amp but i'm pretty clueless when it come to ICE so I dont know if that's correct?

    Thanks in advance

    No it's just a 4channel unit. There is no seamless option as it uses a bespoke connector, is extremely efficient and stable driving a 4 x 2ohm load. Any aftermarket alternative would require a custom loom, and an additional power cable and would probably be too big to fit in the stock location. Just keep an eye out on ebay for a like for like replacement or send the amp to me and I'll repair it for a small charge.
    This is what you want, but this one is well overpriced:
