2019 SL Audio Question

Fri Nov 30, 2018 10:07 am

Hey folks! Brand new to the site and the Leaf too. I have had it for two weeks now and I am wondering how hard it is to remove the factory Bose "subwoofer" thats bolted down in the trunk, and would that cause any issues with the rest of the speakers functioning? I know Bose likes to make everything all inter-dependent so I am hoping I can remove it without affecting everything else. I can't hear it AT ALL so I am going to install an amplifier and a real sub in the next few weeks. Thanks for any advise, tips, or tricks you may know of. Cheers!

Did you adjust the bass in the audio settings in the car's audio menu?

Yup. Bass is almost at the highest setting on the radio.

Either you like more bass than usual, or there is a problem with the car's system. Sometimes the speaker polarity is connected wrong and that kills the bass. Anyway, I have unbolted the subwoofer but have never tried the system with it disconnected, but I too think it won't work like that.
