Bose Wave Music System IV - Platinum Silver

$499.00

A) Most people think the Bose system sounds pretty bad, and after 3 months with my car I tend to agree. With the bass and treble controls set at the default positions, the radio has boomy, poorly-defined bass and too much treble, but no midrange. I set the treble control down two "blocks" and the bass almost all the way down to get halfway decent sound. But it's still boomy sometimes!

Even though the later Bose systems aren't supposed to be affected by the infamous Bose Buzz that affected the '99 cars, many people (including myself) do hear a distinct buzz from the door speakers in wet weather. The '99 problem was caused by a missing or incorrect baffle, and Bose admitted that the speakers will buzz when damp. So it's possible that, even with the correct baffle, the speakers might get damp and buzz. You can try waterproofing them (inside the door) to cure this problem. Lots of folks install 8" baffles from Crutchfield for this purpose.
