I have a CCR2006 in the recently purchased Omega on a 2000 plate but it is not the original head unit for my car, and having read the BOSE system guide I now think I understand why its making some horrible sounds, according to the write-up the CCR2006 has to be programmed for the BOSE amplifier outputs as it was not the standard choice for the BOSE equipped Omega.....

Can anyone else please confirm ?
Yep if its a late'ish DBW Elite then normally Bose 2006 HU in the 2.6 and NCDC in the 3.2's as a general guide, as TB says not all 2006 were re programmable for Bose Mode, most were either yea or nah.

Also as said Non Bose HU in a Bose set up equals too much volume for little play with the Vol knob then just distortion after that, other way around Bose HU in a Non Bose setup equals hardly any loud volume at full blast ie, only a couple of Watts output at best.
If i wanted to take my head unit out of my 3.2 would i have to change all the speakers as well thanks
Pretty much,  ...and the Bose Amp and poss the wiring, depending what your plans are.

There are ways around it, but its all pretty much old hat now, so maybe best to start again from fresh.  :-\
that's what i was thinking new head unit and speakers although the bose unit is very good i think it needs updating to something a bit more up to date thanks for the info :y

Some CCR2006 can be reprogrammed to Bose, most cant.

You'll know if yours is wrong, as a single click of volume knob make a big change in volume

Thanks, as I suspected it is incorrect due to the volume adjust scenario, so which HU should it be then ?
