I was going to put something up on the forum about the upgrade I just completed on mine. Actually replacing the amp is not that bad on a bose system, however there is more to it sounding good than just swapping the amp / speakers. The amp can be completely removed from the system and a new one spliced into the connections coming from the radio. Just snip the whole thing. There are no signals going to the amp outside of the audio. All of the eq'ing done by Bose (poorly at best) is done by the amp. The signal from the head unit is clean. I ran a stereo signal into a JL Audio Fix (which after the fact really wasn't needed - the amount of eq'ing I saw was marginal , this included any eq changes that could have come from the volume increasing - there was no difference in the eq for sound levels). The signal then runs into a JL Audio TWK where all the magic happens. As for amps? They will get your a louder sound but not a cleaner sound - the eq'ing from the TWK is really amazing what can be brought out of it. I'm still working on getting the sound right but it's light years of an improvement.
If you were wondering the amp (stock bose) is under the rear passenger seat. Just fold the seats down and lift up the flap and its right there. It's the big one with the heat sinks on it.
Also if anyone else was planning something similar I can put up the configuration file which could be a good start. Mind you I also replaced the speakers.
If you have any questions about it let me know.
Thank you this info. Can you tell what speakers did you install?
Is it just a swap or required new connectors?

I know everyone thinks the Bose system in the 2017 Murano sucks - and I agree !!!
Any suggestions on better systems/speakers ? My concern is ripping the Bose out would cause warranty and functional problems (Loss of steering wheel controls)
What are your recommendations for fixing this junky sound system ?
