It WILL definitely work...
BUT, i believe u will NOT get the sound that BOSE intends u to get IF u do not use the BOSE HU.
kgb claims tat the BOSE software is in the amp built into the subwoofer... even if tat is so, by pluggin it to ur standard HU, it means u can play around wit the equalizer settings still... which might not please BOSE much!!
(remember tat the "bose" HU has its equalizer disabled...)
anyways, wat im saying is: if u really must have wat u hear from the BOSE setup in the 147s/156s, then get the FULL set... otherwise be prepared for a compromise which can be better or worse... who knows, since u can still connect ur existing tweeters to a BOSE set, and wit the equalizer settings ENABLED on ur standard HU, u might do ONE BETTER by tuning the sound to ur own taste!! then its no longer BOSE!!
apologise for the puns, but the gist is tat the bose aint much to begin with, so improvision on ur part isnt bad IF u do not have more than normal standard for sound quality...
hope im not confusing u...
