That's funny! I found the system to be much *better* than the one
in my old 1987 Audi GT. I guess my perception is based on what
I had before!

When I said "the only thing you can do", I was talking about improving
the sound in the front only. Sure, replacing the rear speakers (or anything 
else) is another option to improve the overall system. In fact, I'm 
very interested in what you replace them with. Please let us know and 
tell us the kind of improvement you find. Thanks.
