    Eh,,,I don't agree. I honestly don't think the stereo system had anything to do with the fall of GM.

    My friend has a T/A and asked what I did with my stereo, he was really impressed.
    I'm the opposite. We recently bought another 4th gen that had all that crap in it. Hate pretty much all the aftermarket head unit's since you have to get the book out everytime you want to play with the buttons, which are so tiny by the way you almost need a pencil head and magnifying glass because your fingers are too big, and with the huge amp installed, there was literally 22 feet of rather large amp wiring running throughout the car, and one of those boom box thingy's where the 12 disc changer is supposed to go.
    I couldn't have been happier when we ripped all that crap out and reinstalled all the factory monsoon stuff. Then got $600 in my pocket for the whole setup to boot after I was done.

    I was just lucky that the fool didn't hack all the speaker and dash wiring up, and everything was simply plug and play. I'll at least give him credit for that

    Haha,,,ya I'm not the boom boom type either. The speakers were replaced in ours too,,,both doors, the back seats, and in the rear hatch areas. I had to replace the pair in the very back as they were blown. But the rest was fine so I left it be. I was just happy to have the stock head unit back in there,,,something I could operate without a book,,,,and the factory 12 disc changer back where it belonged. It's simple enough for us.

    Well im def contemplating getting a stealth sub now. I just messed with the settings and diff music with my sound system today with the car off for pretty much the first time ever. I've come to the conclusion that the bass does indeed suck for some music lol.

    Seems like it sounds better with the fade a lot more to the front then I had it. Almost like the rear speakers kinda cancel each other out and the sound gets sloppy. Besides the bass tho sounds good to me!
