    And I just have the regular radio in mine. I'm sure the Bose blows it away.

    I guess I've only cared about sound with my digital piano and my PC where I can block out all other sounds.

    I only have 2 Fosgate speakers in my MAZDA the rest are Focals and Morels.

    I prefer these days mostly Smooth Jazz reproducing clarity and quality of sound., But when necessary when my music is disturbed at a stop light, can thump challenge a RICER any-day

    I think the bose system is adequate especially for a car without a CD player (North America). The high's are okay and the low's thump but not in a good way (some of you know what I'm talking about), but that can be forgiven considering it's only a 5 inch woofer. The bose system in our cars are better than most stock car audio systems but still can't touch most high end car systems with proper tweeters, woofers and subwoofers. I don't consider myself an audiophile, but maybe I should.

    I'm also not a believer in sound bars. Just bite the bullet and pick up an A/V receiver on sale and pair them with a nice set of $200 bookshelf speakers. You're welcome.
