I live 0.3 mile away from Bose, in fact, the 508 phone number is very close to my home #...

They have awesome service, they will replace any and all components at dealer prices, as long as you provide them with the Bose OEM P/N

valuable info, thank u. These blow speakers are driving me nuts.

Just left a message on Patty's answer machine, hopefully they will deliver to Ireland
At a MB dealer cost of 220 euro per speaker, ye have saved me a fortune
thank you.

The auto sound professionals call Bose, "the one note bass."
Audiophiles think Bose is awful. It's OK with me because car/road noise makes really good audio an impossibility.

I am still trying to get the Bose part number for the small speakers in the upper part of the doors - anyone have that part number so I can order replacements? '97 SL500...

Speakers went up to $60 in November. Just ordered a pair through Patty.

Tweeter p/n 133620
Double click on the picture to confirm the Bose number on the back of the tweeter.

Does anyone know . . . .
 
Does anyone know how the door speakers (above) are attached to the plastic cage?

I won't be using a 1-2 ohm system anymore so I'd like to replace the Bose speakers with speakers of today and the cage looks like the best way to get them to stay in the door.

Thanx

Hi Robbie:

The SL500 door speakers are attached to the plastic housing by 4 screws.

It's a typical speaker mounting application.

Pic attached.

Take Care, and May God Bless, Arctic

Thanks Artic,

I was hoping they weren't rivets.
So they're actual screws, can't see from the pic ?
