Need help with Bose Amp wiring.

19789 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Bálna
I have a 1995 S320 and one of the previous owners installed an aftermarket Pioneer deck, but in doing that they cut up the factory Bose amplifier wiring. I got a new Aftermarket Sony deck with 5 volt preoutputs. Now I am attempting to fix the wiring and make it how it came from the factory. I really need a wiring pinout for the Bose amplifier and just wiring diagrams of everything so I came here seeking some help.

Eliminate each twin color wire by testing it one by one , twin colored wires are Speakers ,you only need to figure out which wire is for which speaker then label it & onto the next .
Use an old radio or something that can make a sound you have to test by connecting the wire to the Speaker to hear a sound coming from inside the cabin speakers , good idea to have someone sitting inside .
Brown is Ground ,Blue is Amp trigger ,Red/White is Power (Double check on this one specifically, ad a fuse in-between before connecting this one) .:thumbsup:

Alternatively you can do this .
Within the Thread you find a link for later models , but it's basically the same setup .
