    01 pathfinder bose system

    hey there ive been searching around the forums for an answer to my question but cant seem to find exactly what i need. I have an '01 pathfinder with the stock bose stero system with 6cd changer. I want to ditch the head-unit and just use the computer to control the audio. How would i hookup the computers output to the existing bose system? There are mentions of the bose system having amps built in or possibly buying a converter or external amp. I am not sure what is necessary to accomplish this, so any help is appreciated.

    do you know whether or not the amp is built into the stock head unit you want to replace?

    I don't believe that link answeres the question about the amp being built into the hu though, does it?

    If it's a BOSE system the likelyhood of having the amplifier in the headunit is pretty close to Nil. Every BOSE system i've run into has an external amplifier.

    I have an 01 QX4.... i believe the amps for the front speakers are built onto each speakers and the amp for the rear speaker is behind the left wall in the trunk.

    Because of the amplifiers you may need something like this:

    Along with this:

    dude skip all the interfaces and just replace all the speakers in your doors and rewire them...itll end up being a little more work now but it will definitely pay off in the end...i have a 99 escalade with a bose system and i basically rerouted the 4 door speakers to an alpine amp and the bose amp still feeds to the factory sub and rear pillar speakers...it sounds good and im useing the stock radio!
