Ive just orderd a full Polk System for my car, which will replace the standard 9 speaker Bose system in my car.
However i will be keeping the Bose headunit to retain the cosmetics of the centre console.
The stock speakers are driven from 3 Bose amps located around the car which i would like to remove.
The standard headunit puts out Line level, which is flat EQ.
The problem i have is that the headunit gives out Balanced Differential output, which i metered at 1v, which meens if i use these to feed the Polk amps i will have to turn up the headunit gain to feed the amps with a substancial level, which inturn puts stress on the headunit, and increases line noise.
Is there a converter you can get which will take the differential outputs and convert them to normal RCA, with a better signal.
My other option was to use the signal POST Bose amps, using high to low level converters, the only problem i have with that is that the Bose amps add a rather 'crap' EQ curve to the sound, and wouldnt be Flat, so i would probably loose a lot of tuning aspects, and mid range. (Bose are known for there own unique sound)
If anybody has any ideas then i would love to hear them!!
Oh and to wet your taste buds heres the car in question.
Thanks in advance
