Just as an aside note, I had problems for a couple yrs with the rears
cutting out - this was wth an original Bose as pulled by a lister several
yrs ago that I purchased. (reason for purchase was that button # 2 would
stick in) I recently bought another Bose from a lister ( same thing - #2
button which I NEVER use).  However this radio was a Bose reman unit. And it
works great - no rear speaker cutout. I do still get a high pitched whine in
the fronts which I had before - sounds like a WW2 movie with the bombs
dropping ( as in doppler effect) but does go away eventually. . I was
pleasantly suprised when the reman unit cured my rear speaker drop out
problem. I wonder if maybe they put a stronger amp in the reman units.
