anyone have this option? if so, what do you think about the sound, compared to the JBL
I have an SR5 with the standard 6 Disc changer. IMO, it sounds OK. Now I've never had an opportunity to compare the standard with the JBL. The question is.....is the JBL worth the extra money? I had the JBL in my '04 DC with the controls on the Steering Wheel, and the sound was not as good as my current system The one thing I miss is the controls on the SWanyone have this option? if so, what do you think about the sound, compared to the JBL
Dont worry, youre not missing much with the JBL. The JBL sounds good compared to the standard 6 disc, but its nothing to jump up and down about. My JBL came with my Limited, but as soon as aftermarket fit kits are available, its done. A nice aftermarket system sounds alot better, so I would just wait it out and upgrade to something alot nicer for probaly the same price as the JBL.I'm not that impressed with the sound, I have the 6 CD changer with the 6 speakers. I didn't compare the sound with the JBL because it was hard enough getting the options that I wanted. I would like to change out the factory speakers but I don't have much experience doing that sort of thing, plus it doesn't look easy because it looks like you would have to take apart the whole dash? Maybe someone who changed the factory speakers could give us an idea how hard it to change the speakers????
I'm not a big audio aficionado so normally I wouldn't even pay the $200 to upgrade to just the 6-disc stereo, but I was "forced" to get the upgrade because you are essentially stuck with that upgrade in the SET area. So in spite of my usual indifference on the subject, I must say that the 6-disc $200 upgrade sounds pretty crummy. I'm pretty sure a good set of speakers and an amp would make all the difference in the world, but I'll probably just grin and bear it and get used to it. (I'm not sure if the next upgrade fixes the problem - I know they add an amp, which is probably a good thing, but unless they upgrade to a much better set of speakers I'd be cautious).anyone have this option? if so, what do you think about the sound, compared to the JBL
Jumbo, thanks for the information on the speakers. I'm always afraid to start taking things apart because I usually end up breaking some plastic clip or something.:tu:
