    I think I have one or both lying around (the rears are the same as front) after I replaced mine last year.

    I'll check when I get home tonight...

    Im also having a problem with my bose passenger speaker - when you changed your speakers what did you change them to and did you have to modify any of the bose system as i know the bose speakers run at 2Ohms?

    I am just seeing if I have to replace like for like or if I get some aftermarket speakers if they will work fine with the bose setup!

    Cheers

    I just replaced mine with 4Ohm Infinity units with no problems so far (5.25" fronts, and 6x9" rears) with MDF adaptors similar to AndyMacs design. In theory you will just get a bit less out of them, but the Bose units have a low sensitivity so that probably cancels it out. Certainly loud enough for me...

    I may look to replace the Bose amp with something a bit better once the weather improves.

    Yuck! I'm about 15 years too old for hacking holes in the parcel shelf!! :sm4:

    I made some MDF adaptors which allow me to mount the 6x9s in the original locations in the rear panels. I would have gone with 6", but had a pair of 6x9s so made for them instead...
