    Could be a number of things.
    Just a loose connection on the sub loom, or inside the enclosure where the amp is.
    The Bose amp overheating, does it sound OK when it is working?
    Are there any characteristics to the fault? i.e. does it only happen after continued use, or when it's been thrashed a bit etc etc. Does it always work when you first get in the car, i.e. cold?
    The Bose sub runs off one front pre-out and one rear pre-out, so does fading front/back have any effect?
    Need more info really. It's a pig to get to as you have to remove quite a bit of trim.
    You can pick a replacement up on ebay for about £100 or upgrade it for one of my stealth sub/amp combo's for around £300.
