this one works also, and is available at radio shack. Installed it in mine in about 20 minutes, unsolder old one and resolder the new one.

so i also fell victim to this common problem recently with my bose system. the bass does indeed cut in and out then returns at random. there's a lot of good tips in this thread but as much as i don't want to mess with car audio in general or tinker with the amp relays, i think i'll just replace the whole setup for a decent sub and components. hopefully it works and i can continue to blast my house/dubstep music.

Well if you are replacing it then in the mean time try the fix. It's super annoying to have it cut in and out while you wait a week or however long it will take for you to replace your components. Not a hard fix. Good luck to you

There was a diagram for this on 350zmotoring but can't find it now, does anyone have the diagram to reseolder in the relay?

Had the same problem, remove your amp and fold a piece of cardboard and tape it with electrical tape. Once you have your amp open place the cardboard to the right of where these guy has his thumb.<a href="http://s280.beta.photobucket.com/user/jackassflames/media/hqdefault_zpscb765805.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk188/jackassflames/hqdefault_zpscb765805.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo hqdefault_zpscb765805.jpg"/></a>
Should work for you, easy job and dosent cost anything to fix.

I totally agree with Jimmy Mack, my sub never really worked since i had the car but since removing the sub amp opening it up and using rolled up card covered in insulating tape, placing it on the relay and putting it back together it works like a dream.

i would just like to add that it didnt work on mine. However i did solve the problem. I noticed every time I un mounted the speaker it would work fine. so what i did was unmount the amp and just let it rest in the housing. problem solved. i guess for some reason the vibration from the speaker was disrupting the amp. thanks for all the posts.

Did this fix on two 03's with the Blose system and they both worked perfectly!! Definitely recommend this to everyone!!!



Note: System still sound like *** once this fix is done.

I did this a couple years ago, and it fixed it for a few months. Figured I would try it again last night since my bass has been cutting out for a long long time, did the fix again and still doesnt work. Im out of ideas when it comes to this thing, does anyone have any other ideas? The wires that go to the sub seem to be getting a good connection also, so im clueless.

I've been messing with this for a while - re-soldering the relay, pressure-fitting the relay in the case - and eventually it just didn't work; lead on the relay broke. Got the Radio Shack relay listed above, and it was a perfect fit for the unused relay solder lugs on the board. 10 minutes and I was up and running again with bass, which does seem to give me less of a back massage than before. Way better than none at all... thanks fro the tips here!

I have a weird issue. I just installed a Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS and the speaker popping issue is persistent at high volumes, but the head unit also flashes white and freaks out. Is this part of the same problem? Now, I have my Alpine sub amp ready to go whenever I get a new box for my subs, I don't know if that will make a difference. I'm thinking I just need to replace the speakers and get a second aftermarket amp..

Any insight on this? The head unit flashing is weird..

Would just unplugging the Bose sub help the rest of the system? I'm going to have two JL Audios in the trunk anyway

THIS thank you. I used this relay.

(for those of you that need a link to click)

FYI, g sedan has the exact same amp, but its located inside the woofer assy. for anyone wondering.

Dont do the lazy fix, replace the relay and do it right.

I love having bass again! Thank you guys!

I try it out this morning and it's not working 100% of the time but it's 100% better than before. I think I need to add more pressure

Still working nearly 10 months later. Worth it to do this fix the right way!
