According to the build sheet, my 2008 XR has the UQG -AUDIO SYSTEM - 10 SPEAKER PREMIUM SOUND.

Have been reading here and there and am not sure about wattage and subwoofer.

A member on the Acadia forum with a 2008 SLE says he has Bose Premium Theatre 5.1 Surround Sound with Dolby has 10 Bose Speakers and the amplifier generates 230 watts.

Read a review online that says the 2008 has a 300 watt system.

Many years back I had a 1999 Cadillac STS that had a 400 watt system that would blow the doors off.

If I have a 300 watt system, it pales in comparison to the 400 watt system in the Cadillac that I had.

Have a few questions and need some help if you can:

1. How many watts does my amplifier generate?

2. Do I have a subwoofer?

3. Can I replace the amplifier with another GM amplifier that will give me more wattage?

Full volume is OK, but it still leaves a lot to be desired.

As I said earlier, I would really like to stick with a GM amplifier.

Basically looking for a plug 'n play replacement with more wattage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Bose Premium Theatre 5.1 Surround Sound with Dolby only came with the vehicle if it was factory equipped with the RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment)
DVD option from what I recall.

Try searching and then posting your question over on the Traverse and Acadia boards. There have been previous discussions about how to upgrade the factory system, usually by going aftermarket. I know each forum has a few "experts" when it comes to audio systems.
