I've always been amazed at how adequate the factory stereo is. I am usually the type that adds amps, speakers, subwoofers, minidisc changers, in-dash minidisc recorder, etc...but I am satisfied with the stock system, even though Bose is usually bottom-of-the-barrel crap.
It sounds even BETTER when you realize there aren't even any tweeters in the system...those little paper full-range drivers make a satisfying amount of high-end...and they aren't even installed in any sort of enclosure. Hell, they aren't even installed IN the actual door!
I find it is a surprisingly nice sounding system, and it will even drown out my muffler-less true dual exhaust when I want it to.
It even was loud enough to overpower my temporary catalytic converter-less straight pipe exhaust that was as loud as a nuclear explosion with the windows down. That's loud enough for me.
