I have an 03 GMC 2500 slt with the Bose stereo system speakers fornt and
for...from day one the connections keep failing...etc etc so from day one i
never am sure if it worked well or not...They have for brief periods kept it
so all front and rear speakers are functioning.....however the rear is
barely audible...i have the front on at a normal level and the rear needs be
full blast to be heard.at all...so if i have the fader in the middle...u
have no idea there are rear speakers..The mechanic claims there are amps in
the front speakers....so they are quite a bit boomier and louder than the
rear...True?? or have i been screwed around for months??
can u tell your have front and rear or am i being fussy??
no u misunderstand.......
first i have had them make repair after repair...they have and are conuing
to do so...
my question is of someone who ALSO has the Bose stereo...is this just how it
is?? aside form the plugs always coming out...when working correctly is it
just all based up front with a tiny little unimpressive unnoticeable
speakers in the back??
im no expert but i dont believe that is the way it is. i think the
dealership is screwin with ya. the fronts may have amps but if they do so
should the backs. bose in a good home system not sure of its automobile
I have the Bose system in my 03 1500 extended cab Silverado. I've had it
about 10 months/12,000 miles and i have never had a problem with the
connections and it sounds great. One time I started the truck and no sound
would come from any speakers but after turning it off for about 30 minutes
and turned it back on everything worked fine, no problems since.
Your rear speakers on your truck, most trucks and cars actually, are
intended to be a fill NOT your primary listening speaker. The problem is
sound staging, you are trying to hear a speaker that is behind and below
Do you have the 6 speaker system? If you do try this: Move the fader all
the way to the front and listen to the change. The front door speakers are
your primary speakers, they are located in front of you so it sounds like
all the sound is coming from the front. If you move the fader all the way
front you'll hear the sound coming from those small "tweeter" speakers on
the window posts. If you move the fader to the rear you'll hear the sound
coming from the rear door speakers. So the center channel is the front door
speakers. I was listening to a song one day when I first got this truck and
about the middle of the song the audience clapped from behind me. It
sounded like I was sitting front row center in a concert, it was awesome.
I just thought of this...
Open the drivers door, and pop off the fuse box cover. You'll
see a group of connectors that plug into the fuse block. Push
on all of the connectors to make sure they're fully seated.
I hard-wired my radar detector to a power source in there, about
2 days after I got the truck, and I found that one of those
connectors was loose. It caused the audible "ding" noise (that
drives me up the ****ing wall), to sometimes stop working.
I didn't know anything was wrong at the time until I fully plugged
the connector in.
