    Anyone know the Model S standard sound system speaker details? What range are they capable of, etc.,?

    I'm not sure if anyone has gone to the trouble of actually measuring anything, but the general consensus seems to be that the best they're good for is for occasional listening to NPR (or any other news programs)....

    I changed mine out for the Light Harmonic speakers and the difference is nothing short of amazing. Still need to do a sub of some sort to overcome road noise at speed...

    Really? I changed my basic door speakers for the light harmonic set and can't tell an iota of difference. I thought that was the consensus now on those speakers. I even changed one side at a time so I could do the side by side comparison. I couldn't tell.

    Adding a sub of course is a much more dramatic change and something I would still like to do.

    I only add the sub. But listen to songs from Celine dion or Elton john or Michael Buble make no diff.

    But listen to jay Sean or black eyes pea or something with thumping make stark differences

    Alpine makes a very impressive shallow subwoofer that sounds amazing without compromising too much trunks space. We like to flush mount the subwoofer in the trunk on the left side. If you are looking for bass, this option works perfect! :) SubwooferTeslaS.jpg

    Interesting. I've been searching for Alpine to see if they make something like this and couldn't find it initially.

    How many people using the Audio Control LC2i or are you not using one or another brand?

    Good to know I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Did you install them yourself? or did you get a shop to do it for you?
