    Hello

    Found these on fleabay - look like a bargain

    But the question is how easy is it to swap the speakers, and install the amp - oh and where does it live?

    Upgrading from non Bose to Bose is quite a job. You need to rewire all the speakers, you need the Bose main harness running from the HU to the boot, and you need the power loom as well. All that for a marginal improvement in sound quality. Go aftermarket for a much better improvement with the same amount of work.

    Agreed, i have bose factory fitted to my vehicle. Its very good BUT, if it wasnt already installed i would go aftermarket as it will be alot easier to fit and a larger variety of options are out there for your liking.
