Boy, is the above advice right as rain! I "had" your same problem for about a year and fumbled around looking for used speakers on Ebay, places to get my amp rebuilt (I have 1994 sl600- probably same amp and speaker as yours). What an enormous waste of time. The forum had the Bose info (listed above) on replacement parts. I bought a new amp (about $240 and the 2 front door speakers-$40 each) and got them on Friday. I put the amp and speakers in this morning and everything was perfect, instantly! Thus, pull your door panel, order the new push pins immediately, and order the amp and speakers noted above. If, after review of the speakers they don't appear damaged, maybe you just want to start with the amp. Almost certainly that is the problem. They have a high failure rate I am told, but also, one of my speakers had gotten wet and was distorted. Believe me, I would have gladly paid $300 a year ago to fix this problem! Don't even think about buying all of this from the dealer. You can't buy the speaker alone-have to buy the whole "assembly" for $500 plus dollars and the amp is $1,000. plus. Patty at Bose knows what you need and as long as the car is more than 10 years old they can sell the parts since they are no longer under contract to Mercedes. Thanks to everyone on the forum for posting the info that me solve my sound system problem, easily.
