How do I Replace an Acura MDX Subwoofer?

by Allen Coleman

The subwoofer in the Acura MDX Bose system is an 8-inch sub that runs off the factory Bose amplifier. When looking to replace the sub, it must fit. There are replacement subs for the Acura system on the market that will fit right into the vacant spot. If you have another sub option, check the dimensions to make sure it fits.

Step 1

Locate the subwoofer and remove the screws, then pop off the cover.

Step 2

Unscrew the four screws that hold the sub into place.

Step 3

Slide the sub out and remove the speaker wire connected to the sub.

Step 4

Connect the speaker wire to the replacement sub, keeping the positive and negative wire separate. Depending on which sub you purchased, it should be as easy as twisting the wire over the speaker post.

Step 5

Secure the sub to its location by replacing the four screws you removed earlier. Tighten them down.

Snap the cover back into place.
