With a sub, you can add more thump at lower volumes to compliment the levels at which the smaller speakers have a hard time reproducing any bass. As far as the amp goes, again it's not about loud. The factory amp IMO is not as "clean" as a quality aftermarket unit and therefor takes away from the true output of the head unit. I don't listen to music any louder in my car now that the stereo is twice as powerful, it just plays with a higher quality of sound reproduction which I think is what most people here are upset with.
Thank You!

After playing in a live band / running a recording studio.. i've become spoiled to good sounding music and quality.

So I do my best to recreate it inside my vehicles.

There's a speaker in the center of the dash and another speaker in the center of the rear platform.

Too bad the Mach system isn't used in the Mustang anymore....

I finally played with the settings on the stereo yesterday and now I think the system sounds great. It's the best sounding system that I have ever had in any vehicle I has owned.

It's the bass more than anything. Needs more clarity.

I doubt the Bose would be any better. The one in the Corvette sucks IMO.

Do the 2013s have USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 inputs?

I'm thinking of getting an external hard drive and essentially having a music server in my console. In lieu of a CD player.

For those of you who added a sub woofer, where did you put it? Is there space for one somewhere? How does the JL 12" fit for those of you who went that direction?
