Appreciate the feedback. Makes perfect sense what you did to help out and glad it's a little better. I 'think' the alarm just went off in my head. Given that the car is designed as a 'chauffeur vehicle' in SK, I did a physical count of speakers in the rear door(s) and rear deck. I then cranked up the tunes, same ole lackluster experience in the driver's seat, got out of car, sat in the rear seat and.... a totally different experience. Very, very good sound. Doesn't do us any good unless we can figure how to drive the vehicle from the back seat, but sounds good in the back, nonetheless.
