Count me as a Bose defender -- or a fellow owner of sub-audiophile
ears! The Bose system in my car ('91 200Q) sounds great to me
(regardless of the number of speakers :-). The receiver (or the
antenna system) leaves something to be desired, I think, but my
poor reception could just be the somewhat hilly region I live in:
we don't even get acceptable TV without cable. Maybe a real
external antenna would help, but I'm not about to drill holes in
my car for something I rarely use anyway.
Other minor nitpicks -- dash display doesn't indicate CD mode, even
for my factory installation, and receiver doesn't seem to have any
