    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Hello, Ive just bought an aftermarket Amp and sub, spent hours yesterday trying to get it to work with the original AMP which is located under the drivers seat. I already had an RCA adpater/Hi Lo converter but I'm not that technically gifted nor as handy as I wish I was so I just gave up. I...
  3. 4 speaker Linear to 7 speaker Arc

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Forgive me as I know this is a common topic on here but I'm extremely confused. My 05 linear has the 4 speaker system and I'd like to go to the Pick'n'pull and rip out a 7 speaker system including the head unit. Has anyone done this? I would imagine you need a tech 2 to marry the head unit...
  4. Sound System Issue

    9-5 Workshop
    I noticed one of my rear deck speakers was cracking so I bought a used HK replacement online and it makes the same noise. I also have noticed the sound almost sounds like it skips out. Confirmed this is whether the audio is a cd or AUX. Since I've replaced the rear deck speaker already, I'm...

    Hey folks. So I'm helping a guy with an 05 9-3 convertible. The fuse in the dash panel, #14 to be exact, Is sparking when the ICM is hooked up. I've also noticed that the fiber lines don't light up. I took a look at the diagram and learned that the radio amp and the ICM both touch that same...
  6. Speakers/radio not working - apparently it's not the amp

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    A few months ago, the radio/speakers in my 2003 Saab 9-3 started acting up. It would cut out/wouldn't turn on when the car was started but would sometimes come back on. Eventually, it stopped working all together (speakers, turn signals, and display are all out). I did some research of what was...

  10. 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero with Premiere sound problem

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    The problem is a very weak sound stage coming from the back when I turn the fader all the way to the rear. The difference is really noticeable as the front is twice, maybe three times as loud as the rear. It's my wife's car and she says it wasn't like this before the stock defective head unit...

  13. Testing AMP1?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I posted a few weeks ago about the audio issues I was having with my Saab 06' 93, and the general consensus was that my AMP1 needed to be replaced. However, I saw at least one response saying that someone had a similar issue and it was the 6 disc CD changer. Before I go and spend $600 on a new...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I bought a 2003 9-3 linear with the 7 speaker system and the door speakers just played static as if they were blown so the first thing I did was change them out. That did not solve the problem. so I figured the amp was bad. I got an amp from a shop and put it in... got the exact same problem...
