Question about 2008 Cadillac Srx

1 Answer

I have a 2007 Cadillac SRX with the Bose system. I noticed the front driver door speaker wasn't working so I replaced it (with factory bose speaker). It still doesn't work. Of course I suspect the wiring but also think maybe the amp has some problem. All other speakers work fine and the radio head control seems ok too. When I turn the balance to the left, the tweeter in the pillar works fine. I did test the old speaker with ohm meter and it looks to be bad, and the new one, fine.

Use an ohmmeter and test the wiring to the amp and then from amp to speaker to find out where the fault is.

Reconnecting/retiring Bose speaker cones. Inside speaker I have four coloured wires....Red,Black, Green & Orange....which connectors do they attach to on the speaker cone?

Since you posted this in cars and trucks I assume this is a bose car system. Most bose auto systems have the amp physically attached to the individual speakers. This means each speaker needs the following wires +12v, 12v ground, + signal and - signal. It also means that the head unit cannot directly drive a non bose speaker. If you are replacing the speakers and bose radio the best thing to do is to run new speaker wires. You can reuse the factory ones if you can identify which ones are what...and that may be a pain. If the bose amps are ok and you want to replace the speaker you would need to leave them connected and wire the new speaker to the wires on the bose speaker that come from the bose amp. Depending on the specific bose system there may be an actual wire that runs to the speaker from the amp but on others the amp is directly connected to the voice coil leads of the bose speaker.

2004 cadillac devile left speaker front no working

Depends on which sound system you have - BOSE systems in Devilles have two left front speakers!
If it's an amp problem, you will have an error code (DTC) set which you can see with a code scanner.
Check to see if the L/R balance control is working properly - cycle it a few times to make sure there are no dead spots.
If it's the door speaker, it is probably water damaged or it has open coil wiring and will need replacing.

2000 oldsmobile bravada factory bose system 4 of six speakers just died

The amp fuse should be in the fuse box in the dash, it is fuse 20 and it should be a 25amp fuse that is clear in color. Although looking at the diagram, all the speakers go through the factory amp. So you may have another issue.

2000 chevy tahoe speaker wiring

This will depend on whether it's a Bose system, or not.
Non-Bose AC/Delco radioFront Speakers are:L. (-) Light GrayL. (+) TanR. (-) Lt. GreenR. (+) Dk. Green
Rear:L. (-)YellowL. (+)BrownR. (-)Lt. BlueR. (+)Dk. Blue
Be sure to test the connections, as you will notice that there are 2 Yellow wires, 2 Brown wires and 2 grey wires behind the factory radio.

GM pairs all the speakers into separate 4-pin plugs for front and rear. If the factory harness is intact, I'd suggest just getting wire harness adapter from any of your local car audio shops, you'll also need a GM mini antenna adapter, if you are hooking up a new stereo.

Front speakers only produce static

The amps are on each of the speakers. There is a place in Florida that will fix them for around $85.00 each plus shipping. I put a sony unit in mine and replaced all of the speakers with the kicker ds series for less than fixing the bose system.
