Bose sound system

I recently upgraded to a 2016 Volt from a 2013 Volt. I'm very impressed with the Bose sound system. I'm especially impressed with XM satellite radio. In the past I've thought it wasn't worth the money to pay for radio (after the free trial period runs out). But with the Bose system (mostly newer) music sounds great, with thundering bass and great range and separation. Modern music has a lot of bass. I've listened carefully, but I haven't heard any buzzing or rattling or distortion. It sounds very solid. Of course it is new. I'm rethinking paying for radio. I wonder if anyone can tell me where the sub-woofer is. Or is there one?

I'm normally not a fan of Bose myself... I had it in my 05 RX8 (sucked), my 08 Z06 (sucked) and now in my 17 Volt... and it's not as bad as previous generations it seems. It's not perfect by any means, but for the cost of the system, and if you aren't into modifying or doing your own work, it's not too bad. I added it to my build sheet just because I didn't want to have to rip apart my car and spend a weekend or two wiring in a bunch of new stuff.

In both my previous cars, I ripped out and did custom work... and I might be doing a sub replacement in the Volt here soon just because it's so cheap and easy and everyone is saying it clears up some of the muddy bass.
