I can't find the specifications for the MDX stock radio at the moment, maybe somebody can supply a pointer to them. My question is whether the Bose system for the MDX can be installed in the Pilot.

Any thoughts would be welcome.

Almost all the people on the X site hate the Bose system. Besides, they're tuned for the specific interior of the X. Unless you're getting the parts for free, why not spend the money on a real audio upgrade?

ditto - might as well upgrade to something good.

I see that, now. Until you mentioned it, I didn't realize there was an X site.

Probably the most interesting thing I saw there, on this subject, was the attitude to chuck the subwoofer and simply install four high-quality co-ax speakers.

I guess that means simply disconnecting the tweeters in my Pilot, or do people recommend separate tweets too?

tnx.

My local shop who I have a long standing relationship with and trust implicitly is going to install a set of Boston Z6 components in the front door AND an additional set of tweeters in the dash. This will raise the soundstage up off the floor.

I will evaluate whether to keep or replace the sub after I hear my seperates installed.

I have new tweeters installed and drive them with the new head unit. I have an amp to drive the door speakers and the 10" Rockford Fosgate enclosed sub. Whoa Mama! It sounds good. There are a few others who have done very similar installs, Kippy, 91Octane, etc...

Are the speaker upgrades people are doing mainly just the fronts and sub? Or has anyone replaced all speakers in the Pilot?

For now I am going one step at a time. I will do the fronts with an amp. I will evaluate the sub next and may replace it. The rear doors will be last if at all.
