Premium 70 improvements

The premium 70 system can be improved  by replacing the speakers. I would advice to replace at least the front speakers as a minimum, If you want a better sound you ca always install more speakers. You wil not get a proper bas performance, to achieve that you will need to upgrade the system to a premium 150 system.


A popular speaker for the replacement of the standard Saab speaker was the Boston Acoustics. The Boston Acoustics S35 has the proper diameter and depth and fits in the available space in the dashboard. It also has a very good price-quality ratio. It is probably the most used replacement for the speakers in the dashboard. The Boston Acoustics S35 is not not in production anymore. The instruction for another speaker is the same.

The speaker covers in the dashboard are easy to remove. Use an old credit card or something similar, to avoid damage. Remove the old speaker, it's best to use a small ratchet with a torx bit  because the windshield is a bit close to the speaker.

Connect the new speaker to the original connection. You can use sleeves but you might consider soldering. Do not reverse polarities. There are to numbers at the original connector,

1 = negative,

2 = positive.

Install the new speaker, you can simply use the old torx bolts, place the cover (click into place) and start listening. You'll hear an immediate improvement, the sound has more treble and the timbre of the speakers is much better.

The replacement of the speakers in the rear shelf goes in the same way. You can pop out the speaker covers and there is much more room to work.
