Believe it or not, the system has 6 speakers. 2 tweeters high in the front doors, 2 mid/bass speakers in the front doors and 2 barely on speakers in each back door....I guess for ambience. No speakers on the back deck. And no sub, which I thought it would have. I'm disappointed as well, but not extremely so. I had a top of the line Bose system in my 2003 Mazda 6 that didn't sound as good as this one. It had the same amount of speakers and a sub, along with an external amp. It also relied very heavily on the front speakers, with the rear door speakers barely on. The sub was so low I had to check by touching it to make sure it was actually on. So, this system is better....just not where you and I want it to be. I complained about it on my questionaire I received by email a few days ago. Won't help us, but maybe in the future they will have a better system. I've heard adding a sub isn't too hard, so I'll search on line for that choice to see if it improves the sound any.

I came from the premium Bose system in an Altima. It was loud, heavy bass, but not balanced real well. A major step above this however.
I agree that adding a sub should not be very difficult. I'm not sure it will take care of the whole problem, especially if you can't roll of the lows to the other speakers and balance the output across them. But it would be better than what it is now. My wife will have a heart attack knowing that we need to spend more to make the NEW system sound ok. ( She actually complained about the quality of the sound )
I'll let you know what I decide. - Cheers

I was listening to a CD this morning on the way in and notice just how MUCH bass I have. There's one thing I forgot to tell you about my settings on the premium audio in the limited. I have the auto volume (I think that's what it is called) on all the time. Being a purist I usually HATE those features (the Bose was awful and I never used it). And I did notice a lack of bass BEFORE I turned this feature on. It was then that I had to turn bass to midway.....Try it if you haven't already. This may help.
