    Bose speaker clicking noise

    I'm leaning towards my driver side front Bose speaker being blown. I removed the door panel thinking that this clicking noise could possibly be something in the panel rattling, but after still hearing the clicking sound with the speaker in my hand, I no longer think it's the door panel. It clicks in rhythm with the beats in the music. Is it safe to say that I should look for a replacement? It's loud enough for me to notice with the music quite loud.

    I tested the passenger side front speaker and it doesn't make this noise.

    What years share the same speaker to aid in my speaker search at the junk yard??

    Thanks!!

    98-04 sevilles with bose will all have the same front 8" door speaker, but look on ebay for a set from the 02+ I think that's when they upgraded the quality of the speakers, I've had a 99 with bose and now an 03 the 03 sounds way more improved than the 99

    Thanks cadi, I actually think they improved them in '01, or at least that is what I have heard from ryannel. Either way, I will look for at least an '01+.

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    I have a pair of front door speakers from my 01 STS w/ Bose, been collecting dust for almost 5 years. They DO NOT have the wiring harnesses however, just the speakers themselves.......hint hint

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    What did you do with the wire harnesses???

    I am really pressed for time..I don't want to put my door panel back on until I have an operating speaker in there. I swear I break a retainer clip every time I remove that stupid thing.

    Jesus calm down hulk, slowly pull the thing off lol but curt will probably gladly hand those speakers over to you, he's not a big fan of bose, hell he's probably ripped the audio out of the cts already lol

    Don't stop there - I've dealt with AMPS that were the culprit when pops were encountered, and the speaker was good (except where the foam edges were beginning to rot). See if you can get a known working combo. It'll save you from having to pull the door panel off twice (been there, done that).

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    I think the only thing that is inside the door panel on my '01 is the speaker...I think all the AMPS are in the trunk...

    Also are both front door speakers the same? So I can find a passenger side front that will work on the driver side?

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    They should be the same size, and therefore interchangeable. That's the case with earlier Sevilles. There's a sticky in the Cadillac audio forum here that identifies what you have.

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    Here's the excerpt:

    Seville
    1992-1997
    Front Door Bose 4 Inch Non Bose 5.25 with 2 inch tweeter
    Rear 6x9

    1998-2004
    Dash 3.5
    Front Doors Bose 8 Non Bose 6.5
    Rear Doors 6.5
    Sub 12.5

    Both front speakers are the same impedance (~1 ohm), so go for it.

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    I am getting an AMP code, but it's U1128 HISTORY - Loss of Communications with IRC, so I doubt that is causing the problem with the speaker.

    No that code isn't it and the speakers can be swapped no problem

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    Okay, it is definitely the speaker causing the noise because I can replicate it by tapping the back of the speaker. Bad news, no salvage yards in my area have a speaker that I need.

    Re: Bose speaker clicking noise

    If I come across an SLS with Bose, would it have the same front door speakers?

    As long as it has Bose, yes. No difference between STS/SLS.
