    "No highs or lows, it must be Boze." F'n hate that company with a passion, the Dyson of the audio world. Cheap drivers and cabinetry, yet bloated price tag. The simplicity is what I like about the JBL system, that it's still the way to get it done today. For a while I had an aftermarket deck running the JBL amp, was neat that I could do that.

    It's not. In an earlier post I mentioned how I disconnected my dash speakers because of how shrill they made everything. It sounds much more balanced with just the door speakers and the ones in the rear package tray.

      yeah the GM and Chrysler setup was difficult, and the drivers were shitty paper so they would fail and instead of a $50 speaker it was a $300 speaker / amplifier assembly. Stupid.
