... with the Bose system there is an amplifier/equalizer built into the
speaker units. This is most easily confirmed by looking at the speakers in
the rear deck. While I'm sure the audio dynamics are improved by keeping
the wires from the amplifier to the speaker short, the fact that there is DC
power with sufficient energy to start a fire supplied to each and every
speaker poses a pretty big risk IMHO ...
I'm not sure whether or not I reported this here earlier ... but I stumbled
upon the fact that the urS4 Bose system has the rear speaker amps mounted in
an enclosed heatsink which should reduce the chances that an amp failure
will give catastrophic results. The amp cards built into the box are the
same ones mounted directly to the speaker housings on the V8. When I get a
chance I plan to mount the box in my car ... the original plan was to mount
the newer Sony non-RF changer in place of the remote controlled RF modulated
unit that goes with the B-punkt Delta (already got a Gamma-Bose in the dash)
... but after getting a 40GB iPod I'm wondering what value there is to
having a CD changer at all ...

When you say "amp" do you mean the radio itself or is there a separate amp?
(haven't really had a chance to look at any of it). And yes I got the car
last year from my girlfriends dad and he had the timing belt done before I
got it. The only problems are it needs new front rotors and the paint on
the bumpers is peeling off in sheets.
