... Bose seems to keep this sort of thing to themselves to prevent exactly
what you are trying to do ... 

I know that simply connecting a non-Bose Blaupunkt unit causes a lot of
popping noises, suspect the same sort of behavior with any aftermarket

I've heard that adapters are available to allow non-Bose units to work with
Bose speakers ... who was it, Crutchfield?  Another option is to find
speakers that will fit into the Bose enclosures ... of course Bose doesn't
use standard speakers to prevent this sort of thing ... and you will need to
run speaker wires to the door ...
