Audio Systems/bose, 4 speaker system, in 97 nissan maxima


I have been trying to locate the factory bose radio for my son. His car, when had no radio/cd player, in when purchased. What player, model number, do we need. The car has May 1997 on the door. I am at a lose as to where to look for a original player. Thanks for your help. Dan Kahla

You might try where I found this item:

You might try eBay also as I found a couple of used units.  

That year model Maxima came with either Bose head units or non-Bose - probably by Clarion.

Finding the Bose is more difficult.

Also, go to and walk through their 'what fits my car' analysis. Here is the starting web for you to follow:

Hope this helps.
