Installing a Bose system

Hi, I have a question concerning the installation of a Bose system in a Boxster 986. Now I have "standard" speakers and a Pioneer radio. I bought a second hand bose set with amp and woofer, but I have no manual. I don't realty-show know which cables I need to connect where... Can anybody help me with this? Thank you.

Good luck with this project! You didn't mention getting a CDR-23 radio. The radio and the amp communicate via fiber optic cable so you'll need that as well.

The bose speakers thate work specifically with the bose amp are 2 ohm impedance speakers so you'll need them as well to truely set the system up.

If all you wanted was the subwoofer, you can get it to work with your existing system without any of the fiber concerns. I don't know how it'll sound with the rest of your system, given its 2 ohm impedance, but it won't hurt anything to try it.
