    I'm keeping the stock head unit for now, but I want to pull the Bose door speakers and the bullshit hose "subwoofer" from the rear, and just put 2 really good 3 way speakers in the doors.

    Any suggestions?

    Won't work, i do believe bose systems run at 1ohm so unless you have 1ohm speakers i don't think you will get much sound out of them at all (at least in a maxima you need to get a new HU) if you run normal speakers you get like 5-10 watts or something

    Some of the bose systems have small amps at each speaker. He'll need to pull those and install an after market amplifier for it to work. Otherwise as you said output will be very weak.

    Thanks guys, I did some research on the stock head unit and you're right, it's designed to support the 1 ohm drivers in the bose speakers, so I'm gonna replace the head unit first. I'm looking at the Nakamichi CD400 right now.

    You'll have to replace the HU and the loudspeakers. No way in hell can you run that HU amp @ 1ohm.

    What car is it in? The Blose systems avry from car to car. In MOST cases it is easiest to rip it out and start from scratch. If you REALLY wnat to keep it you can do all new speakers and a new p off the Bse unit with either an amp that has a kickass input section or a GOOD line out converter.
