I hope so.

Yes. That's what I meant.

They also make for tighter bass and just better overall sound quality.

BA produces components that satisfy many audiophiles. Let's hope that the Visteon DSP amp components are worthy of the BA brand.

I think they will be.

Visteon -- give us more details please!

That's all I know right now. I'll keep my a lookout for more info. My audio contact is out until Monday. But remember, I can't say anything until it is publicly released. Don't want any coming after me....

Cool. They are much better. I have replaced foam surrounds and its NO fun.
I have a pair of 1990 HUGE Polk Audio $2000 home speakers that sound and look new. When Polk made SDA MONSTERS.

Both are good in different areas. Bose is close to the top of the line in home audio. I have a Bose surround sound in my house, it sounds amazing. I also have the Bose system in my vette, and it sounds ok, but BA sounds better in the car world. i have a truck with all after market BA speakers in it, and the Bose system in my car cant touch it.

Bose was one of the manufacturers we laughed at, because their marketing is about the best in the world. There is no doubt they do an excellent job in making people believe they engineer high end, high quality stuff. But when you actually take their stuff appart, and see how it's made, it will make you laugh.

Their systems are waaaaaay overpriced - the 3-2-1 system is over 1500 bucks and a Yamaha theater system is twice as nice for half the price. But the kicker is Bose doesn't even use discrete outputs - they use the PAL7001 amplifier IC you will find in a 150.00 Pioneer car CD head unit!!!! Their circuit boards are cheap, thin, and flimsy, they don't use any high current B+ rails (just the thin circuit board traces - real amps use solid copper or even gold bars soldered in to the circuit board for high current and low signal loss).

Bose does a great job with their marketing, and telling people how the "wave radio" and "virtual surround" works with only two little speakers and a sub.

But true high end home theater really starts with McIntosh like Tag said. I saw a demo from one of their factory engineers where he ran a 60 Hz sine wave into the amp, hooked a regular home vaccum cleaner into the outputs of the amp, and turned up the amp and ran the 6 amp vaccum off the outputs! Try that with a Bose

As for my home theater, I use an Adcom GTP-830 pre-amp, 4 AudioSource power amps (the two fronts and center are each briged mono at 50 watts rms, 200 pk per channel and the rears are run with a larger 400 watt amp, 200/channel stereo), Pinnacle speakers and a BCI 10" 200 watt sub.

All in all its about 1200 watts pk, 300 rms.

Yeah, it gets the job done

You know your stuff.

I have always told people that BOSE SUCK. 3" paper cone mid-ranges and cheap tweeters. A JOKE IMHO.

I believe they will also have a USB near the area of the 4 gauges in the console. I like the idea of having ability to store my ipod in the console for and host of reasons and since they have bluetooth my iphone should integrate nicely. Can't wait
