I don't own the deck, but my roommate has it in his car. Before we got the imprint mic, the cd player sounded decent. After getting the mic and setup all 6 positions the car really came to life. I have sat in all the seats and had my head 6" from a
6 1/2 rear speaker, and it doesn't over power u with it from all of the other speakers. The subwoofer blends perfect with the speakers, making you think their isn't a subwoofer. The unit is simply unbelievable.
