Thanks for a finally reasonable explanation of why it's always sounded like millions of forks down a marble staircase.

And I just convert YouTube songs to mp3's for playback
YT audio quality is like two tiers lower than napster was 20 years ago.

if you pay for spotify you can get 320kbps audio which is very high quality and i doubt most drivers can tell the difference between that and flac/ogg/wav files while driving in a big noisy sportscar

i can't tell because i've gone to too many concerts in my life and ruined my hearing before i grabbed a pair of musician's earplugs to minimize further loss

I can hear some of the compression, but it don't hiss like 64kb/s, so I just ain't care anymore. I also prefer to have stuff on my own hard drive instead of relying on others servers to maintain things. Amazon taught me, if you don't have it, we can remove it at any random point.

Okay, so has anyone actually figured out if the premium comes with 6 or 8 speakers? And if it comes with 6, which two did they remove?? Because the car always came with 8. Did they take out the midrange speakers in the dash, or the two in the back? So weird that they would remove speakers at all considering they'd have to tune the entire system differently for it.

The difference according to the part diagram is the two speakers in the red boxes are added to the Limited trim.

^[edit] and in the space of typing up my reply, @PhatFreshPrince confirmed what i was saying.

well, no one knows because no one's been able to take one apart yet.

but 'tune' is a bit of an overstatement.

they could easily remove the dash midranges, and no one would even notice.

historically, subaru and toyota love to make the tweeter connection a 4-wire device, with a pair of input and output terminals(which really sucks, pull the tweeters, and the entire front audio system dies), so it'd cost money to change the connector for it. but the midrange is just a simple tap off the output of the tweeter, with a rudimentary built-in capacitor for a basic crossover.

they would actually save money not installing the dash midrange.

by the math i've done before, it crosses over somewhere around 4khz if iirc, with the tweeter crossing over somewhere near 12khz. it was really high, and they could easily drop the tweeter capacitor value to make up the difference with almost no difference in cost. but the reality is they'd probably leave it, as it'd be one more part number, and no one will notice anyways.
