I was considering adding an amp or two and replacing the speakers. I've got the Navigation/and Bose factory system. Has anyone done this? Do you know if the factory setup has RCA outs for an amplifier? I'll probably have a shop do it for me, but I want to know ahead of time if it is going to be extremely expensive, or difficult. Any advice greatly appreciated.

It is a factory system. BOSE is not compatable with aftermarket stereo equipment. The Deck is a panasonic. The speakers are $4 POS. The only way to add an amp is to get a line level feed off the stereo and then amp it.May add a lot of noise. I want to get rid of mine but its tied into the NAV and I'm reluctant to as I don't want to mess up the NAV. I'm going to have to research it in a little while when I'm ready. I used to install for a living and will do the work myself. But for me, its after some forced induction and a PRG lift. :D

I have the same set-up as all of you. I added a sub with absolutely no problems. The Signal to Noise ratio of the stock head unit seems fairly well. The unit I got is made specifically to interface with the OEM Bose system, made by PAC Audio. Their web-site is www.pac-audio.com. The part numebr you need is the AOEM-NIS2. This kit comes with everything you need to tap into the audio signal between the head unit and the external Bose amp. This output converter will give you 4-channel full range RCA pre-outs. Though I am only using this for a sub out, I had this same unit previously installed in my 2003 Nissan Murano w/Bose. With that set-up I had replaced all the speakers and added subs and the sound quality was great.

Anyhow, I'll attach a diagram of what the set-up looks like. If you have Navi...use the rear RCA's so when the Navigation starts talking it wont fade out the subs like it does for the front speakers.

BTW, I forgot about the best feature of this kit. It comes with a "T" harness and you dont have to cut a single wire.

Nice to know. Maybe I'll look a little more seriously now. ;)

Tootall, thats fantastic, thank you very much for the info. I really didn't want to go with a line in off the feed to the speakers because of the line noise, looks like this is a good setup!..

Thank you again.

If I added this setup with a new amp to the speakers, how do you wire the speakers with only one wire? Or do you need to pull new wires to all the speakers?

There are no speakers in this world that have only one wire. There are always a positive and a negative.
Anyhow, you wouldnt want to amplify the stock speakers with another amp. Chances are, you would blow them.
