From the WiKi page:

2010 Boston Acoustics Audio System Specs
(standard on 2LT and 2SS models, available on 1LT and 1SS models)

  • 245-watt
  • 9 Speaker
  • 6.5-inch woofers in each door
  • 1-inch tweeters in A-pillars
  • 3.5-inch center channel speaker (in the upper instrument panel)
  • 7-channel sub-woofer (on rear shelf)
The 7 channel sub woofer is counted as two speakers each.

I didn't cut it either, just unplug and tape it to the speaker. Keeps it from going down the dash or rattling around.

less than a 5 minute job... and WOW! To me a VAST improvement in the stereo separation! To me it seems the sound stage is much more defined... And for the type of music I listen to and the way I like the front and rear balance set this no cost mod is a HUGE improvement! Sorry it took me so long to notice this thread!!! THANKS to the OP!!!

There are 3 tabs at the forward edge (front of the car) so you need to pop both rear tabs first, then as you lift it up it will pop the two fronts and away you go. Obviously you will need to insert the forward edge first when reinstalling...

I must say, I had my doubts but it is def worth doing. Besides destroying the stereo effect, it totally "muddies" the sound... Glad I did it for sure.

Well I thought this was bs. So I tried it and works! Less distortion and sounds much better. I think the center channel would be fine if there was a separate fader for it to where you could just barely have it on? Paired with the front speakers it can't handle the volume. Mine is now unplugged and 30 to 35 on the volume really sounds good now!

My best mod yet, I really like the system now!
I mostly listen to hard rock/heavy metal so removing the center speaker and lowering my settings worked out great for me.

Thanks guys!

Same here, but more of melodic death. What do you have your settings at?

Did this and honestly there really wasn't that much of a difference. I guess without the center speaker it MAY be a little crisper sounding but that could also be the placebo effect kicking in.

Seriously I was listening to the ipod with the speaker out and I would unplug and plug the harness back in during the song and would not be able to tell. If somebody told me they disconnected my center speaker I never would know the difference. ..but hey if you guys think it is much better then go for it!

I am trying the -2, -4, and 0 right now with the center unhooked and it sounds good at the same or lower volumes than I have been using.

To me it sounds more crisp and I don't hear any crackling like I have been at higher settings and with the center hooked up.

Ok so I have a question. I followed the instructions laid out on this thread for taking off the grille (btw, it is not as easy as everyone claims and the dash, and grille do get marked up and warped a little bit. Anyway, I got the grille off and it looks like some of the white pieces fell off on the left side of the grille but I couldn't find them in the car. I am wondering if anyone can confirm whether the grille is supposed to have 4 of the white tabs or only 2. Picture is below.

Thanks
