after hearing it a couple of times out of cars, it sounds very nice. I probably won't be getting it in my camaro, but I would suggest it to anybody who is thinking about it.

Get the BA. It'll be worth it.

Only comes w/ subs if you order them.

There should be preamp outputs in the back, but will not be sure for a while on that one.

A few years ago GM probably would have called this a ~750W system, but they are using RMS numbers which while not perfect are a much better comparison system. 254W RMS is pretty good for a stock sytem and unless BA drops the ball most people should be quite happy with it.

I still haven't figured out where 9 speakers are located.

1 in each door (and I'm assuming each side in the rear as always) = 4
1 Center Channel in the front dash = 5
2 Tweeters in each A Pillar = 7
Plus a subwoofer = 8

So where is the 9th speaker???
