wow...that's weak. Why can't GM step up like other auto manufacturer's and put quality stereos in vehicles which are on the higher end???

Because they don't have too. Your radio powers the speakers in the car with a 45x4 internal amp. and the sub amp piggy backs the signal off the rear speakers into the Actual amplifier that produces the actual 45 watts rms to the sub. It only take a real 45 watts rms amp on this 6 inch sub we have to make it balance the factory speakers which on a good day only put out 25watts even though it is rated for 45 watts. Just as a note in order for the manufactuer of the radio(blaupunkt) to claim it is 45 x 4 it only has to atain 45 watts for 2 tenths of a second. That is why an external amplifier that 45 x 4 is better than that of an in dash. And that is because it actually puts out 45 watts x 4 rms and it is possible for the aftermarket amp to put out more. the in dash unit will not get to that wattage for very long.

I have entire factory system for sale if anyone wants one. Best thing you can do is take it out. The head unit is marginal, the speakers are paper, the sub-amp (not even subs, mid-bass and paper cones) is weak. The rear sides are 6-1/2 but the grill is for a 4-1/2. The doors half cover the speakers and they're aimed at your feet. The tweeters are on top of the dash and the time phase between them and the lower end (doors) are feet apart. Besides that I'm not impressed. They did leave lots of room to upgrade except for the rear subs depth. Only have 4", I tired Kicker 8" mid-bass, Pioneer 8" shallow subs and finally settled on CDT M6 6-1/2 mid-bass. Did I mention I have entire stock system for sale?

Is there any way to integrate the volume controls from the wheel into an after market head unit. I love being able to do a powerslide and turn up the volume at the same time

For the record, GM has the highest customer satisfaction for their Delco stereo's over every other brand in the nation.

The best factory set up I EVER had was the Delco Monsoon in my 99 Firebird. It was cheap, but VERY high quality sounding.
