It didn't sound that bad (Based on what was written on the forum) but the sound was nowhere near the 9 speaker in my TH. This is the best factory upgrade that I have ever heard. BTW, I traded a 2014 Journey Crossroad for my TH. I was shopping for a TH back in 2014, but was smitten by the DJ in Copperhead Pearl!
By no means was I implying the Cherokee 9 speaker setup was bad. Especially for the price. As far as the Journey, I can't remember if it was Infinity or Alpine, I think Alpine, I loved it. Not only was the clarity there and it was very balanced, the sound stage in the Journey was fantastic.

A friend of mine is getting a GLE43 and I'm trying to talk him into the $5,000 B&O system
