You'd have to use the Bose head and wiring same as in the Aurora. Interesting problem -- there may not be any difference actually. No idea. And there's not much reason those items would not fit under the package shelf. HOWEVER if I remember my Riv history there was an idea for factory convertibles for the Riv. Someone on the design team (Bill) would have to address that, and I don't know/have not met him or any of the others.
By the way, the 98 manual shows those items also.
I am not aware that any Rivs were delivered with the Bose audio and subwoofer.
By the way -- if you can get the schematics (at least the pinout for the connectors) you should be able to install the head, wiring and amp/subwoofer yourself if you wanted to.
What I would do: Get the Clarion amp/subwoofer unit from a Subaru (it fits under the passenger seat, it's like 8" x 10" x 2.5" deep) and install THAT under the back seat or under the console (not sure where it will fit) using mild steel strapping and some nuts/bolts. It's not an earthquake-making unit but it would add pleasant bottom end. A relatively easy web search would get you the wiring information that you'd need -- just be sure to get the wiring harness for the sub, as well as the sub, from the junkyard you go to.
