KHE Posted February 10, 2009 Report Share Posted February 10, 2009 I have a bad rear speaker on my '97 STS - it makes a buzzing/scratching noise. It is the speake itself, not the attached amp - when I move the cone with my fingers, I can feel the core rubbing. GM no longer has the part available, Brasingtons can get it for $250 from a surplus shop. I found it for $200 but even that is a LOT of money... I found a place to repair the existing speaker for $40 but they are not conveniently located and need two weeks to do the job. I have noticed that the rear Bose speakers seem to be unique for the Seville, Eldorado, Deville, etc. - even for various years so I don't think I could install a rear speaker from a '96 Eldorado and call it good. I am guessing the only difference between the various part nos. is the amplifier itself and not the actual speaker. Can anyone confirm that? It seems that is the case since the system is tuned to the accoustics of the car. If that's true, I could pick up one for a '96 Eldorado (ebay - new for $45.00) and just install my amp on it. I want to keep the system stock so please hold the posts about ripping out the Bose system and rewiring the car with an aftermarket unit.
