factory Bose door speaker

Like the MX-5, the Fiat 124 Spider audio system includes:

  • one Mazda 6½” woofer in each door with custom mounting configuration
  • one 1″ Mazda tweeter (with inline capacitor as crossover) in each A-pillar
  • one pair of 2″ speakers in the driver’s seat headrest

and, if you have the Bose® system:

  • Bose® branded versions of all aforementioned speakers
  • another pair of 2″ Bose® branded speakers in the passenger-seat headrest
  • one Bose® 5¼” custom “sub-woofer” module contained in a cavity beneath the footrest wedge in the passenger-side foot well (see my other blog article for more on replacing this module)

 

There is an excellent write-up on “upgrading” the Bose® speakers in the MX-5 with JBL GX600C speakers in the Miata forum.   This is not a project I intend to take on, nor do I have the Bose® system in my Classica, but seeing mention of:

…I felt it warranted a short article to save any 124 owners wanting to replace their door speakers, a lot of aggravation and research.  Others have reported great success with JBL GTO629 and JBL GX602 speakers.  not sure just replaced his factory door speakers with Polk Audio DB6502, 300 watt speakers and he’s very happy with the results too.

NOTE:  Since the mounting configuration of non-Bose factory woofers (door speakers) is identical, these adapters will work well in accommodating aftermarket replacement speakers for them as well.

Gerry has done a nice write-up (with photos) on replacing all of the Bose speakers in the MX-5, which might prove useful to anyone considering doing so.  Other than the door trim panel, all of the instructions should be applicable to the Fiat 124.  Regarding the door trim panel…

Door trim panel removal instructions (thanks to softailfxstd):

Removal time about 5 minutes…..
1. Using a plastic tool trim tool, pop off the small plastic panel behind the lock/unlock lever exposing a single screw.
2. Remove that screw
3. Using a plastic trim tool, pop off the silver door handle cover to expose two screws (I used a plastic hook tool starting at the lower part of the handle)
4. Remove the two screws holding the handle to the door frame
5. Starting at the bottom of the door panel using a trim tool, gently detach the panel away from the frame
6. Use the trim tool to disconnect the white plastic push fasteners located around the   perimeter of the panel
7. Note the rubber gasket does not need to be removed.
8. The panel is now free to be lifted upward and away from the door frame
9. Disconnect the door speaker harness, window switch harness, and door lock switch harness
10. Remove the door lock lever assembly by turning it from the rectangular opening

TUNER AND AMP UNIT [WITH CENTER DISPLAY]

Purpose

  • Controls the audio signal from the entertainment system-related parts.

Function

Tuner switching function
  • The tuner and amplifier unit (TAU) switches the tuner mode built-into the TAU based on the control signal sent from the connectivity master unit (CMU).

Audio signal output function

The TAU outputs the audio signal sent from the following units to the speakers.

  • CMU
  • CD player
  • Auxiliary jack/USB port/SD card slot hub (only auxiliary jack)

RS485*1 signal conversion function

NOTE:

The RS485*1 signal wiring harness is used in the following cases:

HD radio™

  • Radio broadcast logo, album art, or song name is sent to CMU from TAU

RBDS-TMC

  • Traffic information such as location and length of traffic jams is sent to CMU from TAU
  • The TAU creates data from the radio waves received from the center roof antenna and converts the created data to a RS485 signal and sends it to the CMU.
*1
RS485 corresponds to a linear, multi-drop configuration with bi-directional transmission, which is one of the possible types of serial communication, having a maximum transmission speed of 10 Mbps.

ALC (auto level control) function
  • When the TAU receives the vehicle speed signal sent from the instrument cluster, it automatically changes the volume and audio quality according to the vehicle speed and compensates for the passengers’ sense of a lack of audio volume which occurs as a result of external noise while driving.

Splicing into the wiring harness

Many of the wires are very small gauge and can be difficult to splice into when adding circuits. Rather than snipping the wires, trying to strip them and twisting the very small strands so that you can hopefully solder your connections, these special butt connectors from Alightings are made for 22 and 20 gauge wires and come highly recommended.
