My '99 had the base system, and for a stock system I thought it was pretty good. My SHO has Mach that I don't get to enjoy fully because my passenger tweeter doesn't function properly. For now I have my stereo adjusted to play from the rear so I don't have to deal with god-awful static.

I still have some issues with my right rear speaker. It's gotta be the wiring, as the factory speaker did it, the Pioneer in there now does it, and it's had issues with the base RCU, the Mach RCU, and the JBL RCU.

I haven't gotten at it as it'd be a pain to try and find the problem.

Wiring issues suck. Just the thought of hunting down a short/bad connection is unpleasant enough to stop me from doing anything at all.

The car has the premium audio hooked up to a RCA head unit. It doesn't sound too bad for a 25 year old system. The amplifier still works to boot.
