: Bose Questions - 2006 ESV Platinum

04-13-09, 08:23 PM
Hey folks, a little help, please, understanding my stereo.

I've got a 2006 ESV Platinum edition, so I'm thinking that I've got the top-of-the-line Bose stereo. Where are all the speakers? The reason that I ask is that I've got what appears to be a speaker grill (about 8" in diameter) in my left rear interior panel, way back by the tailgate. It's looks like it's a template waiting to be cut out, though, cause there's certainly no sound coming out of it. Think I'm missing a speaker?

What are the equalizer presets supposed to sound like? I can tell a bit of difference between the spacious & the live settings, but the rear & driver settings sound almost the same with the sound focused up front.

Anybody got any ideas?

My 05 ESV Platinum has the same 8" grill in the far back on the drivers side.
There is no speaker behind it in my truck either.
The subwoofers are mounted under the center console I believe.
I read somewhere that there are 11 speakers in the Platinum.
There are 10 as shown on the schematic

In 02, thats where the sub was.
03- 06 it was moved to the center console.

You can do a search in this forum about it. Some members have added there own amp and sub there to add some bass.
