There was never a Bose system AFAIK. In a 96, it should have been the JBL system. Easiest way to check is to look under the rear deck, if you see 2 speakers + 1 sub (ie 3 speakers) than its the JBL system. The Amp is under the carpet near the CD changer. If you were to take the Amp and Sub, it would be a definate upgrade over your stock system, and should be plug-and-play.
:homer:Found a 96 Taurus wagon in a wrecking yard has a "premium sound" label on the sail panel.
Is this the Bose system? It has a CD changer in the rt rear. Where is the amp?
Is the amp any kind of upgrade for my 99 Taurus sedan? I'm getting the changer.
