[200q20v] Besides Claire...other source for rear Bose amps?

Ok, as I said I have stuff lying around, unused for the moment so 
why not stuff it into the 200q20v ?!?

After deciding I should definitely disconnect the rear speakers
I immediately noticed the loss of the boomy bass, which isn't 
really a bad thing, I always thought it was kind of sloppy for a 
fancy Bose installation.

The rear deck actually is a pair of round ~5.5" ??? holes, the bose
drivers are single-cone 6x9s, or at least that shape if not the
exact size.

I'll try this installation, as the components have just been taking
up shelf space since my 911 was taken offline for a rebuild:

- replace the factory drivers w/ 6" yamaha subs, gotta figger a mount
- filter thru Nakamichi 204 (I think that's the number) active eq
- drive w/ either a Nak PA300 or similarly rated Soundstream PA

The signals are there, power trigger from either speaker connector,
battery is inches (ok, coupla feet) away.  Aside from mounting the
subs in the 6x9 positions and anchoring the new boxes, it should
be a trivial job.  With the crossover in the system, I can also try
different rolloff frequencies to see what kind of sound the cabin
has with better low-freq drivers.  I might even add some tweets I
bought for another rig.

I'll pass on an update next week if I actually get to it this weekend.

Anyone who cannot cope with Mathematics is not fully human. At
best (he) is a tolerable sub-human who has learned to wear shoes,
bathe, and not make messes in the house.
