Reviving this thread because I have the same question. Love the car, definitely don't love the sound system. Willing to pay some money to upgrade.
Head unit: Stay or replace? Will I lose the ability to access all the computerized gimcrackery if I replace the stock unit? Is there even anything out there that DOES replace the head unit? Crutchfield's site says No, but CarID has a bunch of "universal" units including ones with similar-looking touchscreens and so on. More trouble than it's worth?
Speakers: Is the poor sound a function of the speakers or the head unit? If the sound quality from the head is only mediocre, no amount of speaker replacement will make a diff. But if the speakers are known to be subpar, then maybe what would best serve me is just doing that. I suppose I could do the speaks and then if still not good enough, delve into replacing the head?
Subwoofer: Are replacement speakers with low freq response (e.g. 50-500 Hz) sufficient, or is a powered sub a must? Not much space to put one of those in, though...
Would greatly appreciate the wisdom of the Niro Collective...
