Upgrading speakers/amp with factory bose?
I apologize if this has been covered, I've searched the forum and can't seem to piece together the information I'm looking for.
First off, I'm NOT looking to dump a ton of money into my stereo, just looking to improve the factory sound. I plan to keep the factory head unit (Bose) in my 2006 Armada LE.
I was thinking of replacing the factory door speakers and I ran across a deal on some Alpines that are on their way. My question is; can I just replace the factory speakers and use the existing wiring and will that indeed sound better? Or do I need to replace the factory Amp?
If I replace the factory amp, I've seen things like the AOEM-NIS2 which provide the harnesses/connectors to bypass the factory amp and provide RCA outputs to the new amp, but what about re-using the factory speaker wiring, are those harnesses included? I have no interest in re-wiring the speakers. I want this to be as simple as possible.
I'm not looking to win any awards with my system, just want the stock head unit to sound better...
Thoughts? Ideas? Answers? Any input would be appreciated..
