Hi all. I'm not new to the Mercedes-Benz family, but my mom just bought me a 2000 ML430 for my first car. I'm 15.[:D] We also own a 1990 350SDL.

How do I know if I have the Bose audio system? I don't have any papers that came with the car. I don't even have a manual. I tried to research the forums but I couldn't find anything. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks,
Andrew

Just a word of advice ... you shouldnt brag about your age on public forums. If this was not your intention, then there was no need to post your age. Congrats on the gift either way.

when you turn the radio on it will say "BOSE" usually.. and if not, check the front door speakers... if they are bose they say "BOSE" on them.

BTW, I am 14.

yes, you will see this LOGO when you turn on your system from off mode, you can check under driver seat if you have a BASS. I think om MY 2000 they don't put any bose logo on the speakers, well at least on mine I don't see any. But I have this:)


[:D]
and this..

Jim pretty much hit it right, if you dont see BOSE anywhere where Jim indicated

then maybe ask the dealer to confirm what type of audio system you have. BTW i'm only 14 and a half <giggles> [:D][:D] Welcome and congrats on the new ride1

I posted my age where ya'll wouldn't think I was a total retard because I didn't know I had a BOSE system lol.

I guess I don't because I don't have the logo on the navi screen or on the speakers. Anway, I don't really care because I don't listen to music in my car that much. I have a harman/kardon system in my room with surround sound...so yeah.

Well, it was nice meeting all of yall in this forum.

BTW, I took no offense to your post. It's all good.

Oh, BTW, I turned 11 yesterday and i love my ML. As for the BOSE thing, I don't think

the ML has a BOSE system at all. The stuff in the ML doesn't even sound like a BOSE system - probably the bottom line system. I sat in a Maxima (don't recall what trim it was) several months ago and I was stupendously WOWED by the quality of the audio. Now, that's a BOSE system!!

Now to answer your question, if you yell BOSE near any of the speakers, you will hear a response yes, Boss response back. Key must be in the #2 position, you must be the only one in the truck, and in no way should you try this after 9:00pm. If it doesn't work, then your truck probably doesn't have this option - MV75, Audio Identification Response System!!!

My 2001 has the Bose system, but no logo is displayed on the screen. I think that feature was added in MY2002 or later. The speakers do come with the Bose logo on the grills, but they could have been removed. Look under the driver’s seat. If there is a big black box that vibrates when turn up the volume, then you have the Bose system. Otherwise, you do not.

I just hear the sound of the ocean when I put my ear up to the speaker. [;)]
