1997 Nissan 300ZX radio and door speakers Sign In

I am replacing a factory Bose radio/cd changer in a 97 300ZX with an aftermarket CD player and new front door speakers. I have the wiring harness/antenna adapter and dash kit for the specific vehicle. Does anyone know if you have to run new speaker wire to the aftermarket door speakers I am putting in? I'm not sure if the factory unit has an additional amplifier or if it is internal.

The 300zx wasn't offered in the USA in 1997. Don't have access to service information to give you an accurate answer.

I can tell you that they offered the Bose system in 1996 and it appears that each speaker had its own amplifier that was built into the speaker enclosure according to the electrical schematic.

Sorry the 97 was a typo, it was a 93 and did have the Bose system. You are correct that there is an amp in each enclosure. This is quite a process to replace all speakers and run new speaker wire for new speakers. One must fabricate a new enclosure for each one.

Sounds like a bunch of fun. I got my boss's father-in-law with probably the same Bose system as yours in his 93 Corvette. The radio lost a couple of channels and he wants me to install new speakers and a head unit. Can't wait.

You don't have to run new wiring because you can use the two input channels that went to the amp for each replacement speaker. That is up to you and your design though. You just have to be sure the amps' relay isn't energized by your replacement head unit. If the amps' relay is energized, it will send 12 volts to one of the wires on each amps' connectors.

Generally, with the bose systems, you need an adaptor to connect it with an aftermarket radio. Check with your local car audio store to see if one exists for your vehicle.
