whats so bad about the boston system?
 
so im looking at upgrading the BA system i have, however i would rather allocate the funds for the kicker upgrade somewhere else in the "build". i think my boston system sounds good for what it is, however the front gets alittle distorted at higher volumes. so im wondering what are the problem areas with the BA system? are the dash speakers just like dash speakers on the WJ- junk...? if i can address these issues and keep it sounding good for awhile, i can justify blowing the kicker funds elsewhere.

so what have you replaced or had issues with and fixed to make the BA system tolerable?

The boston system is a good system at low to moderate levels. The kicker system sounds good at all levels. I started with boston and switched to kicker and i love it!

is there anything that can be done to the current system to improve it? am i correct that the distortion in the front is mostlikely the dash speakers?

Yes, just upgrade your dash speakers. It will make a big difference in the sound quality.

I upgraded to Infinity Reference (2ohm) versions and they sound 100x cleaner than the stock speakers.

I have a set of the Kicker dash speakers that I would probably sell if anyone is interested.
