Need Help From A 987 Owner With Bose


Recommended Posts

Need a little help from a 987 / 987S owner with the Bose stereo.

My stereo just does not sound right. Could be just me, and my aging (46) ears! LOL!! Just got the car out last week from winter hibernation.

My rear Bose speaker "box" just sounds dull all of a sudden. Not as crisp on the highs, and not as bassy on the lows. If I turn the fader all the way to the rear, the system sounds very flat & dull. Is this normal? I am adjusting the fader to "all rear" just to issolate the issue.

Last fall when I did my own air filter change, I obviousley removed the Bose speaker box. I was extremely careful, and worked slow. Did I do something wrong last fall?

Please help. Thanks.

Hi,

Not a 987 owner but I had a 986 with Bose. I'd suggest checking two things. First, look for a loose connection or frayed wiring on the subwoofer harness plug. Second, remove the sub box and check that your engine compartment cover is seated and secured correctly.

A very remote possibility would be that critter(s) decided to nest in your sub box while the car was hibernating. I certainly hope not, but flip the assembly over and open it to inspect if everything else checks out.

No matter what, setting your fader to rear is going to make the stereo sound like mud, because the frequencies going to the sub are low-pass (probably ~20Hz, but depends on Bose's definition) and the tweeters don't do much work.

Good luck.

Mark
