    Smile Speaker Swap for 1999 2500 W/Extended Cab

    Today I located a 1996 Maxima in the boneyard that had the factory installed BOSE speakers. Does anyone know if these might be an easy swap into my Silverado? The price is a steal and I hope that they are still there when and if I get back there. Thanks.

    First off those Speaker in the Max are shot by now. But anyway NO they will not work and your factory speakers will sound better anyway...They are made by Clarion and are about 8-16 Ohms and ran by a Amp in the factory Radio..

    1st They might be 6x9's or 6 3/4 They used all differant speakers in the Old Bose systems. 2nd They were NOT that great of a speaker 3rd they are looking for signal from the Bose Amp that is not in your truck
