Bose sound system.
Some members may remember that some months ago I posted that I was trying to get the Bose sound system sub in the 159 boot working. I had several private e-mails regarding this as it would seem that I was not the only person with this problem, so I thought I would bring you up to date.
All the wiring has been checked and OK. All the fuses have been checked and OK. Have spoken to main dealer in Norwich who said they had no one with any knowledge of the Bose sound system and directed me to another company they use who specialise in car sound systems. They charged me to tell me the system didnít work and suggested it was removed and replaced with a separate amp and sub.
I have now spoken to Bose direct who have no one in the UK. All car audio problems are dealt with in America or Germany. I still have dialog running with Bose but it looks like they trust the dealer to know what to do.
Itís looking more and more like if you have a Bose sound system that doesnít work, throw it away and have another make like Pioneer or similar fitted.
It all seems like a waste of time and money to have a Bose sound system if it can never be repaired.
Will keep everyone posted.
