    Seat Speakers

    Hey guys... How hard is it to replace the speakers on the seat and what type of speakers are they? Mine seems to be blown, making a very bad cracking noise... If someone can tell me how to replace I would appreciate it, thanks.

    Re: Seat Speakers

    More likely it's the amp. I can't recall a member report those speakers going bad. They only come into play on DTS DVD's & DVD-Audio anyway. Maybe it's the source; Commercial or DIY?

    'Course I could be wrong...

    ----------

    It's probably all push-fit but I'd check out the rest, first.

    Re: Seat Speakers

    Mine are also always on, not loud but they are there. Looking through the GM service manual, is shows that you need to take the seat apart to replace these. I've never done one so I can only relay what I've read.

    Re: Seat Speakers

    seeing as how there are two speakers in each seat and thinking about the soundstage does each front passenger get a left and right channel from each seat or does the driver seat just get left and the passenger just get right?

    I have the Bose demo DVD for the STS which does a good job at demonstrating the capabilities of this system. There is most definitely a left and right channel in each of the two front seats.

    Re: Seat Speakers

    Do these speakers require an amp? I am putting STS seats in my El Camino and was wondering if they need to me amplified. Anyone know what color the wires are to these speakers?

    Re: Seat Speakers

    Each seat has both a left and right channel. I have the STS Bose audio demo disc that dealers used to have and they are most definitely configured this way.

    Re: Seat Speakers

    Would be nice to have a copy of that DVD-A disc.
    eBay I assume or did you use your amazing knowledge to talk a dealer out of their copy of it?

    This time, eBay was my friend. I believe I paid $5.00 plus S/H. There were two available at the time but the other one sold as well. It does a fairly impressive job of demonstrating the ability of the Bose system in this car. In the cover, it also makes mention that the STS is the first car in the world to have a Bose 5.1 Studio Surround System installed.
