    03/04 Saab 9-3 Aero ICM3, 7 speaker setup - Door speaker cables?

    Hi all,

    Was wondering if anyone can confirm the location of the door speakers in the front kickboards of the car. I cannot find them using the multitude of guides on the internet. I've checked both driver and passenger side to no avail. I definitely have door speakers, they definitely work and I definitely have the 7 speaker system and ICM3 (Well had I've switched most of it out for JBL which are better but not as much as you'd want. Grr). If someone can snag a picture of the correct driver's side loom and the particular speakers highlighted I would greatly appreciate that. I'm trying to install a subwoofer to lessen the door vibration by toning down the bass from them.

    Thanks a lot, people! I'm loving my first Saab!

    Has your got the large coloured screen with sat nav ( which will be out of date ) and a boot changer for full size SIM card
    If so then you have a ICM 3
    If it's got a small green screen then you have ICM 2 ( amp under passenger front seat .
    If no screen and just buttons then it's icm 1
    Have you had the door cars off too have lookie
    Look at the link below it explains all the different options that were available

    Okay the article linked below, if I'm allowed to share links, helped me find it. The WIS doesn't list these colours correctly at least as far as I can see it lists it as Red and Blue on the right-hand side but maybe I misinterpreted it. Either way, the colours listed here were accurate for me.

    http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtop...72938&start=61

    If I can't share links here is the quote by sgould:

    "The wires change colour. The door speakers have red and blue wires. Blue is +. Red is -.

    The change occurs in the door hinge colour.

    On the left. Blue becomes Green. Red becomes Grey/White.

    On the right. Blue stays blue. Red becomes Grey/White.

    These wires should emerge under the passenger seat in a connector with four other wires. Black to earth. Red to fuse box. Violet/White & Yellow/White as the pair to the front centre dash speaker.
    "


    P.S. Mods : If links aren't allowed sorry, just remove the link and leave the quote. Thanks.
