  1. Saab 9-3 2003 SE convertible factory stereo and speaker replacement

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    To start I apologize for the dirty care, if its any excuse we have had on and off snow for over a month. Here are some pictures that may be useful I have had two audio issues with my 6 speaker Saab 9-3 2003 SE for as long as I can remember. Firstly, the right front speaker was blown out and none...
  2. How do I (should I?) run new speaker wire to doors?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I guess I'll ask this question two ways: I'm upgrading all speakers and installing a new 1500W amp (4x100W RMS at 4 Ohm). I thought I'd upgrade my speaker wires to 14 ga in the process. Dash and rear shelf are easy, but I'm getting stuck with the doors. So, first I'll ask: how have others...
  3. Door speaker housing thingie: use with aftermarket speakers, or toss?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I'm not sure the proper name for it, so I'll just call it the "door speaker housing thingie." There's a picture attached to show what I'm talking about... I'm upgrading all of my car's speakers. For the doors, is there any compelling reason not to put my new 6.5" speakers into the housing...

  6. 9-3 Convertible Speakers and Wiring

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Thought this information i got from Crutchfield for my recent aftermarket speaker swap might be useful for the forum. This is for a MY02 convertible, but worked for my MY03 and might be valid for all MY99-MY03 convertibles. L dash: + brown, - brown/gray R dash: + brown/black, - brown/red L...
  7. Adding subs and amp to '04 93 Arc

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, Just curious if anyone else has had this experience when installing subs and amp into their Saab. I'm putting 2 JL Audio 10" and I'm powering them with a JL Audio 500/1. My issue has been subs cutting out. I can run them for say an hour or so on occasion and they will then turn off...
