  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi folks, I picked up a 1999 SE vert a couple if weeks ago. There's no sound coming from the door speakers so obviously a problem with the amp. I stripped it out of the car and checked the fuse inside, which was fine. Next, I checked the DIN lead to see if there was a feed going to the amp when...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi guys As per my other posts I picked up a 9-5 Aero today. MY05 with Satnav. I'm just trying to work out if I have the AS2 or AS3. The rear parcel shelf appears to have speaker grills but I have no idea if there are speakers under them. A guide on the internet suggests they should have...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, recently joined and have already found the posts really useful already and have started improving my lovely Aero. :thumbsup: I have managed to obtain a complete Harmon Kardon AS3 speaker and Amplifier for my Estate. So far I have installed the amp under the dash and subwoofer in the...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey, I have just installed the factory amp and front door speakers to my 93 M Y2001. Simple enough? well.........upon fitting and putting back the door trim I played with the balances and faders to get a sound from each [as with doors open and trim missing they sounded pants]. Front speakers...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Heres the dilema - Ive been offered a complete AS3 / Prestige audio setup for my MY2002 Aero saloon. Im tempted but the donor car is the same age as mine and I have a concern that: a/ the parts are partially worn out b/ modern technology in speaker cones has overtaken the techonology of 2001...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, Decided that I wanted to upgrade all the speakers and add an amp to my MY99 93 so found and ordered some decent speakers (6x9 rears and 6.5" for the doors)... Was about to bid on an AS3 amp on ebay when a moment of inspiration hit and I quickly tore all the trim out of my passenger side...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, i`ve just fitted an AS3 audio upgrade in my 2001 93...easy enough BUT it does`nt work :confused: I`ve checked all my connections and theres power to the amp but no sound from the speakers. It is a second hand kit but before i start complaining i`d like to make sure i hav`nt overlooked...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, Can anyone help? The subwoofer in my car (AS3 equipped) is not working (i.e. emitting no sound at all). Everything else in terms of navigation and the audio (cd-changer, radio etc) is functioning but the subwoofer is dead quite and hence the sound in the car is not good at all. If I...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My car has the AS1 audio system (single CD and radio unit). I've seen some upgrade kits for the AS2, which includes an amp. and 2 sub speaks for the front doors. Can I install this upgrade kit despite just having the AS1? From what I can gather the only difference in AS1 and AS2 is the addition...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My car has AS3 - I have plenty of bass, and 'harmon kardon' on the rear speaker grilles. The sound is good, but not amazing as it lacks some treble detail - this is compared to my previous VW Passat with standard 8 speakers and a Sony mini-disc - which was much better quality, but without the...

  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm trying to fit new component speakers to my AS3 equipped 9-3. Ive found the amplifier behind the passenger kick panel but Im worried about the 110hz filter applied to the door speakers, is it applied in the head unit, the amplifier or a seperate filter elsewhere? How can I make the amp output...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    What is the difference between AS2 & AS3 in the 9-3? I've commented before that my new car seems to have way better sounds than the AS2 in my first 9-3 SE, or in the 9-5, but it looks identical. That said, I've seen a pic in a 2000 brochure which claimed to show the AS3 but it looked just...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys, I have just been lucky enough to find an amp and door speakers for my 1999 9-3 SE. I've read StanleyB's excellent article, with particular interest on how to remove the door cards without breakage. My questions are 1. how/where is the amp mounted? - does it just slot in behind the...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Anyone got experience of listening to both AS2 and AS3 systems? Does the AS3 sound noticeably better? DazF
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have searched for this for some time and I have seen other pepole ask about it as well. Does any one know the Dimensions of the Saab As-3 Amp as I want to fit a third party one. The cost of the AS-3 upgrade here is €600 and you can buy a lot of amp and speakers for that. Thanks Eoin
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I know the 'quick' visual check in a saloon for the fitment of AS3 is looking for the Harmon Cardon logo on the rear speakers, but with the different speaker arrangment on the estate how can you tell 'visually' that AS3 is fitted..???

    I also spoke to Saab about the software bugs in the 2004 AS3 Sat Nav system - some they are aware of - some maybe that they were not :- 1) No ability to cancel out TP announcements on the steering wheel or the radio. They had no answer for this other than it must need a software patch or fix -...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Guys, I just got a shock (varying depending on which dealer I spoke to!) when enquiring about prices for the AS3 door speakers and "kick plate" mounted amp for my 9-3 SE Coupe. Hence I have come to the conclusion that I would like to try and fit something (non Saab) myself. My question is...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey guys - any of you out there with AS3 Audio on a 2004 Saab 95 and without Sat NAv ? When you turn on the PTY (news, current affairs programs interrupts) Function and the TP button - (travel program interrupts) function does your SRC (source) button on the steering wheel cancel out the TP...
