    Most people that have posted on the forums here seem to have gone for stage 2/2.5, but I haven't seen anyone go for stage 1. Has anyone heard the different setups, and what was your reason for not picking the stage 1? Was there a pretty noticeable difference in audio quality?

    Cliff just installed a Stage 2 system for me this week. When I was shopping around, I wasn't sure that I needed a center channel speaker, but I'm glad I got it. I can hold my hand over the speaker and hear the difference. It definitely helps fill out in the sound stage. You'll want the sub-woofer control too. Music tracks are all mixed differently, and some need more deep bass, and others less. Add both of those to Stage 1 and you might as well go for Stage 2. You won't regret it. Now it truly sounds like I'm driving a luxury sedan.
