Glad you like the sub! And congratulations on getting so much done on the new car.
I would say that the EPS speakers and the SSMB8, when powered by the new HiFi OEM amp, sound much better than the OEM HiFi speakers. I was running that combo for about a week before installing the rest of the equipment and it was decently enjoyable.
I guess that anything
will sound better than the OEM HIFi speakers, everything else being the same.
