Hi, Specifics: 2011 987-2 Boxter Spyder CDR 30 radio with Bose #680 Sound System Radio appears to be functioning, but no sound from speakers when volume control knob is rotated. Background: Believe the damage is self-inflicted.....rats! So embarrassing, and probably expensive. I inadvertently flooded the rear of the passenger compartment with water (don’t ask), lots of it! To my horror, it was about an inch deep when I discovered. Radio worked fine until this. After this, no sound from speakers. Checked all fuses located in drivers side box...all OK. There is a aluminum electrical box beneath the passenger seat with heat exchanger fins that looks suspiciously like a power amp or preamp. There also appears to be a power amp located near the battery in the front trunk, but no water issues affected this area. No automated system warnings logged on instrument panel. Questions: 1. Does it seem from the above I have most likely fried the module under the passenger seat? (And am I right that it’s an audio amp?) 2. How can I determine definitively if the unit is fried? 3. Could I have been saved by a fuse in the unit (he asked hopefully)? 4. If I have to replace the unit, first, must the seat be removed? If so, can you point me at key things needed so I don’t have my head removed by an exploding airbag (not preferred!)? 5. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement unit if this is the bad actor? Many thanks for any thoughts! Terry
