Yes it is possible to do so. In fact, I have a '17 QX30 Premium with the Tech Pkg, and even though it came with the Bose speakers all around and a factory Bose Sub+Amp from I added a small 8" Phoenix Gold Subwoofer and amplifier. And, "Oh boy" does it sound amazing! I wasn't going for anything which would ultimately make my rear wipers rattle, but wanted to feel the bass when listening to music. The acoustics of the QX30 are excellent for smaller subwoofer enclosures. Trust me, you'll be blown away!

Q30 speakers

I want to upgrade my factory speakers. Does anyone know what size they are and if it is a straight forward remove existing and replace with new job. Better still does anyone have a picture of the inside of the door card where the speakers are and what size the speakers are? Thanks for any help

Hi philloliveira, haven´t you had problems with the active noise cancellation system of our car and the amplifier?
How do you do it?
I Installed an amplifier, and at first (with the car in the mechanich´s garage) it was great... but when I started to drive, It produced an extra loud noise coming form the speakers that was directly related with the engine RPM.
We did´nt found the way to avoid it, so We finally had to uninstall the amplifier :(

Now I´m realizing that you have Bose Sound system (I have ordinary sound system), so probably you have only amplified your new sub Signal. I tried to amplify the complete signal to the speakers (all of them)... this could be the key :(

Anyone who know how avoid to amplify the active sound that the car produces to hide the engine noise?

Hi, I've just got my first Infiniti (Q30) and am looking to boost the audio, but information is thin on the ground.

I have the standard audio set up, and I'm not looking to replace the head unit. The specification data says I have 6 speakers, which I guess is the 2x front tweeters, 4x door speakers.

So without getting too specialist, I was looking into the viability of using the front centre speaker (which seems to be installed but not used) and replacing the 6 factory speakers with something a little more meaty.

If anyone has any info on the door panel removal and access to the rear of the main unit, it would be greatly appreciated. Can't find anything on the internet and I phoned my dealer and they basically brushed me off.

The AV Control Unit sends 2 channel audio to the Bose Amplifier. You can probably tap into that to get Left/Right channel audio. Fading is implemented in the Bose Amp and is handled through digital communications you can't easily use.

Alternatively, the Bose Amplifier outputs the following channels:
  • Front Woofer Left
  • Front Tweeter Left
  • Center
  • Front Woofer Right
  • Front Tweeter Right
  • Rear Door Left
  • Rear Door Right
  • Rear Pillar Left
  • Rear Pillar Right
  • Subwoofer 1
  • Subwoofer 2
You could tap into those high-level outputs and run them to a LOC (or use an aftermarket amp with built-in LOC). The downside to this is you have to live with whatever processing Bose has done. Using something like a JL Audio CleanSweep would be advisable, imo.

(Pin 1) Orange = Subwoofer +
(Pin 2) Blue = Subwoofer +
(Pin 3) Blue = Subwoofer -
(Pin 4) Yellow = Subwoofer -

Pins 1+3 make up one voice coil circuit and 2+4 make up the other.
