Now we just need someone to build, fabricate a good gauge housing for the space where the center speaker is. Would be cool to have a nice clean housing slightly facing the driver. Then we can have better sound with the center delete and a cool place for the gauges we need/want to look at and keep the others in the current gauge cluster.

I finally got around to doing this.

The stereo does sound better but I noticed the proximity warning alarm is fainter.

Wow, I missed this boat altogether. I just came across this thread tonight and gave it a try. The stereo separation seems better. Also sounds a little less harsh up front. Before, I had my the sound faded to the rear by 4 or so, now I have it around 2 and it sounds good. To me, it seemed like the front speakers were overpowering the rears, so maybe this was why.

Surround sound is good for movies, but for music (that is normally recorded in stereo) this seems like the way to go.

I've just been using the "rock" EQ setting, which is basically everything at zero, bass at 6. I slightly modified this to:

treb: 0
mid: 0
bass: 8
fade: 2 rear

Bass setting seems to vary based on source.

I didn't say it was nice or not, just that it had been done.

Another thing I noticed is just how sh*tty XM radio really is. While messing around with the stereo, I was listening to some CDs and high-quality mp3s, then I switched back to XM and it was night and day difference.

I got a free year, but after that I might not even keep it. Why can't they stream better quality??!

Guess I'm the odd duck. I disconnected mine and drove her around.... I'm not sure it sounds any better. The stereo effect is more noticeable, but that doesn't equate to better for me.

Yep, referring to xm signal decoded by the BA system, some xm channels like hip-hop nation, sound very clear, crisp/sharp. Then I switch back to Octane and it sounds muddy/dull and muffled, no headroom or range in the music. I have satellite radio on Dishnetwork at home and have been meaning to see if it does the samething between channels. I bought the lifetime subscription for the car. I was told if I sold the car I would loose the lifetime subscription since it is addressed to the BA system in the car. I need to try the center channel delete. I'm disappointed with the sound quality of the BA system.

I didn't want to cut any wires so I just took a zip tie and I attached the connector to the speaker. I did this to make sure the connector wouldn't make any rattling noises had I just let it drop in the dash.

Actually, that's a very good quality speaker for an OEM.

It's there for imaging and sound stage. Would be nice to have some control over it instead of having to resort to removal, but if it sounds better overall for you then sweet!

Yeah.. why is that? I'm very happy with my BA system (vert w/sub) but not with XM.. what with the frequent drops in signal and the lack of consistancy in sound quality across the channels.. why would anyone pay for that. I got a free year of xm.. but unless something changes when my year is up.. I don't think I would pay a dollar a year for XM.

Yeah, I doubt I'll be renewing either when my free year is up. For this much $$, the music should be CD quality.

when I bough my lifetime sub in 2005 for my silverado with the bose system I was told I could transfer it three times before I had to repay for it. I don't have the lifetime on my car because of the huge price increase between then and now.
