Default hooking up bose amp

My buddy just bought a 1997 ssei and wants to replace the stereo. Is there any way that we can hook the factory bose amp up to work?

it can be done for sure, my GXP have a Monsoon sound system (amp too ofcourse) and i had to use an aftermarket harness to get it going
im just not sure which harness you would need, hopefully someone with a 97 would show up soon

Just so you're aware...aftermarket everything > Bose. The old Bose stuff still used paper cones so anything after market will sound tons better.

Search for my post on it from Junish of 05. I popped the pin out of the connector and ran that to the amp output of the new HU.
