Hi All,
Just bought a 07 DTS, pick it up on Monday. So it has the NAV - touchscreen, cd, dvd, xm, with aux/ipod input on the front. The speakers do not say BOSE on them and it sounds like crap. I thought all NAV equipped were BOSE, but I was wrong.

What is the unit in there? AC Delco? Also what are the speaker sizes and locations?

Any suggestions on upgrade of the speakers? The stock stereo/NAV unit is fine and I won't change that. Any info would be great.

Thanks,
Shaun

Thanks, it must be the:

"AUDIO SYSTEM, AM/FM STEREO WITH CD/MP3 PLAYER seek-and-scan, digital clock, auto-tone control, Radio Data System (RDS), automatic volume, Theftlock and 8-speakers (STD) "

That answers what the option are anyways..

That's kinda odd..
I have never seen a NAV equipped car without the BOSE speakers.
I though all NAV systems had the BOSE speakers.

I see now...based on what Mark posted that it is possible to "NOT" have BOSE speakers.

I have NAV and BOSE and like it pretty well.
It could be better, but it is mostly OK.

I have a Performance model with Nav and just checked my radio system. BOSE name is on front door speakers only , so I assume it's a Bose system.

Yeah my last DTS had BOSE on the front speakers. Now I am just wondering what some good choices are for upgrades on the speakers. If anyone has some suggestions that would be great.

Just about anything is an upgrade over Bose speakers.
