I've got this system in my Sport. It actually sounds pretty darn good.
I've been a professional musician for over 30 years.
It's got plenty of low end, unless you need a constant head banging THUMP. The tweeters do a good job without sounding overly harsh. You can get a good variation in sound by selectively mixing in the rear speakers in combination with the fronts.
I just stuck over 80 mp3's on a CD and it sounds great! :lol:
I don't think it's all that great.If you really value sound, I'd go with the JBL. I think one issue is that the speakers don't seem to be pointed at the driver properly. But that's an amateur opinion. I mostly listen to talk and not music, so it's not a big deal to me.
As I mentioned.....the non-JBL stereo sounds good for what it is.
It's certainly not going to sound better than the JBL system,
but it's definitely decent and acceptable. If you've got the extra
bucks, go for the JBL system. Their stuff is always top notch.
