We did a group buy on this over at ZPost and everyone was satisfied as well, nice upgrade for the money.

I ordered mine a week and a half ago. How long did it take then to fulfill the order? They haven't shipped mine yet

Sounds like either a mid or tweeter is on backorder. Did you call or write them?

My order with them is an on going issue. Ordered my things Feb 8th. after complaining several times,got a partial on my order yesterday. Id be less frustrated if id known anything was on back order The only thing I should be missing at this point are the mid ranges. Went to install the DICE and Spec doc yesterday when I noticed I was missing an adapter. BSW tried to tell me I was supposed to purchase the adapter separately. Then said they would ship the adapter right away.after I told them this whole deal has been a crock from the beginning. I asked them to hold the mid ranges until next week. I'm considering returning everything. Need to mull it over for a while. I think they do intend to give a good customer experience.

Sorry to hear of your experience. Mine was shipped timely with all parts.

But don't get me started on UUC.

did you have the premium sound to begin with?

I wondered about this but i think my system is pretty good, it the premium sound. it could use better "hi" frequencies.

You would appreciate the improvement. I have the top hi-fi system and the tweeters are much better(less harsh) than the stock philips units. Those alone are worth the upgrade.

I did not. The only problem I had was getting the door panel off for the midranges and I borrowed a tool from a friend which worked like a charm to pry the top edge of the door. Otherwise it was really easy IMO.
