No, these are not regular Bose speakers. The Bose ones have a white sticker on the magnet with the Bose logo. On the sticker is the Serial number for the speaker, part # and production date. (Mine were made Aug of 98, the car was built Sept 98.) The Bose 6x9'* have a harness screwed to the basket of the speaker, from this harness the (2) wires go the the edge of the 6x9 closest to the pass comp where they connect like a normal speaker. The wires from the bose amp under the HU connect to the harness on the speaker. There should also be another factory lead that goes thru the deck close to the fender with a rubber grommet that goes to the Bose Tweeters that are in the grilles? The wires are independent of eachother from the amp.
There is hardly any controls over a Bose system, you can make small adjustments on the HU, but it will BARELY affect the sound. This IMO is a BAD feature of all Bose products. Bose THINKS they know 100% how everyone wants music to sound. This usually means, thin, harsh highs and flimsy bass. But that is the Bose way. Home **** is the same way.
My Boss has an Acura 3.5 TL and it is the same way, all highs and VERY little bass. But when you swap the 6x9s you will see the difference, you will be shocked how bad the Bose 6x9s sucked.
Also, see my thread about how I wanted to install and amp. and the problems the Bose 'Dynamic Equilization' caused.
