Hey guys,

I was just wondering where the 10 speaker sound system is that we have? I know there are speakers in the dash......tweeters or mids i guess......there are door speakers.......and there are speakers in the rear deck. That is 6 that I count.....where are the other four? Thx for any help.

10 but not really

2 tweets in the dash, 2 in doors, 2 in rear deck and the rear side panels are co-axial speakers so the count the tweets in them also as 4. nobody else counts a co-ax as 2 but gm did. selling point?

We have rear side panel speakers? Didnt know that....never been in the back seat...too busy driving..... :lol: . Thx for the info....I understand now. By the way......It's supposedly a 200 watt system.......is that peak power or RMS power.....there is a huge difference between the two....I am guessing it is peak....doesn't seem like 200 watts RMS to me so it must be peak power...but, as you said....selling point I am assuming. Anyway, it still sounds pretty good for a stock system. Good job GM/Holden..... :cheers

Compared to my 1995 Camaro's Bose system, My 2000 Trans Am's Monsoon system, and my girlfriends 2000 Grand Am DELCO system, I think the Blaupunkt system sounds like ass.

thank god it doesn't smell like ass, more like new leather..if it wasn't for the great engine and exhaust sound i would upgrade audio instead of modding engine,,,,but i'm focusin on engine :)

Agreed.

My Delco 8 speaker system in my GTP sounds better. The Bose in my dad's STS sounds way better.

Maybe the single biggest diappointment in the GTO for me has been the weak stereo.

open the trunk and to the left is the carpet molding, pull it away and reach in with with your left hand behind the sheet metal and there is the amp, turn all the way either direction can't remember which way. hope this helps

My stereo guy turned my sub amp up........he said it was real easy with no real removal of anything to get to it. Made a huge difference in bottom sound.

Yeah, I did that too the first day I had it. I read about it on here and it made it sounds a good bit better. It's alot better than my dad's in his truck and my mom's in her BMW, so I don't know what y'all are complaining about. It isn't quite as good as the one in my truck, but it was all aftermarket anyway (not REALLY loud, just good clean sound with enough bass to just fill out the music a little).
