: 2009 Stereo ??

So, I owned a 2004; traded that in on a 2007 fully loaded, no option missing ESV. That was declared a lemon by GM shortly before the company's BK.

So, I went for two years without an Escalade :( and finally bought a used one tonight.

I thought I could live without the power running boards but... come to find out that the 5.1 claimed on the sticker, is dimmed on the touch screen.

So, my questions:


Does that mean it was never installed?
Can it be activated?
Is there an audio system I could install that works with my touch screen nav system/yada yada?

I'm a bit perturbed because for the life of me I cannot figure out why someone would purchase an Escalade without stereo in it? Did not think they even were manufactured that way? :mad:

What am I missing (besides the sound I crave)?

Thank you ahead of time for your responses!

Or any other media recorded in surround sound. Otherwise the system uses Bose's Centerpoint technology to produce simulated surround sound.

Thank you.

The sound just doesn't sound right in the truck - sounds weak and light, not like the power of my first two Escalades. Thought, when I saw the 5.1, that was the problem.

Thank you again, and so very glad I found this forum!!!
