If you can get the driver's kick panel connector from an old Bose loom it's plug and play.

EDIT: and you can connect all 4 speakers there and not have to fight getting cables into the doors.


The back seat base and glove box is out.
All the 2 kick panels and all the side sill trim panels are off with the speaker cables already cut roughly to size Kev so trying to find the Bose loom isn't worth it now  :(

As of 10 mins ago, i've been told that I have to rebuild the car enough to take the missus to work for 12:30 and its going to rain later  ::)

Nah, i'll take her  ;D

She might be only 5ft 3 on a very tall day and 7 1/2 stone wet threw but she is a evil bugger when she starts  ;D ;D

Well true to form, it started pishing it down so its a afternoon in the shed making a MDF frame / cover to give the amp some protection for when the dog or tools are in the back  :y

'dangle berries' to it   >:(
There is no way on earth i'll get to the front door speaker looms without removing the dash which ain't happening so i'll leave the cables the same length and its off to the back of the head unit we go  :(
Fingers crossed, it won't make much of a difference  :-\

I need to get it back together today  :(

Bose connector in the driver's side kick panel gives access to all the speaker signals and it's easier to get to than the back of the head unit. ;)

Already managed to drag them around before I saw this Kev  :(

Then again, mine started out as a Non Bose Ncdc 2013.
Would the connection have been there anyway ?

Yep, all the speaker cables pass through there and there's a jumper connector where no Bose is fitted.

Well it works  :y
Its a bit quite but everything on the head unit needs to be setup again and everything on the amp is either turned down or off.
Must say even as it is, the sound is very smooth and detailed and that's with 13 years old Infinity components that have been in 4 different cars so the omens are good  :y

I've plenty of pictures on the install and i'll get the lad to show me again how the fick you get them on here tomorrow  :y

Thanks all  :)

Thanks to Lizzie, I now know how to stick pictures of all the work i've done  :y

The amp and mdf box  :y
Note that its the false floor that's wonky, NOT the box  ;)
The box now has a mdf lid and is awaiting carpet  ;)




The speaker and 12volt cable connections  :y





The cable routing  :y












The under the bonnet bit  :y

Due to the very fine strands, the 12volt main feed's cable ends was solder tinned so they didn't break when tightened up in the fuse holder  ;)







Cable routing  :y





And the new DAB head unit   :y







I've a few pictures of the rest of the install of the head units microphone / internal dab ariel somewhere  ::) :-[

If there is enough interest, i'll do a forum guide showing the wiring conections ect  :y
Just let us know  :)
