Default Speaker for TSX and TL?

Hello, I am thinking of getting either 05 TSX or TL, and I have a question about the sound system.They both have 8 speakers but one website says TSX has "performance" speakers, and TL has Acura performance speaker or whatever... Which sound system is better?ThanksI learned that the TL one can play DVD audio. But if you only use CD, which car can produce better sound?

Im pretty sure the TL one is better. I read somewhere that its like either 100 or 1000x's more detailed than a CD. But ill have to check on that one.

first of all i dont have either car to listen, but with's bad review of the 05 tsx i would guess tl for better sound especially since what says about the tl. grammy winning producer would know good sound, developed with him it seems to be the clear winner.The TL features a standard DVD-A 5.1 audio system in North America. The 225-watt Acura/ELS(TM) Premium 8-speaker Surround Sound System with DVD-Audio, DTS(TM) and CD 6-disc Changer, AM/FM Tuner and Dolby(TM) Cassette delivers a whole new level of audio fidelity. This DVD-Audio system, developed with Grammy-winning music producer Elliot Scheiner, utilizes six distinct channels (compared with two on the typical premium sound system) to deliver sound resolution 500 times better than CD. The premium system plays standard CDs, DVD-A discs, and DTS-enabled CDs and incorporates XM(R) Satellite Radio for over 100 channels of premium quality sound.and the tsx:Page 2The 2005 Acura TSX comes equipped with a six-disc CD changer and AM/FM/XM radio. The six-disc changer doesn't support MP3 CDs, but an optional MP3/WMA/CD-A player is available for $551. The 350-watt, eight-speaker sound system is powerful enough for most needs, but the bass seems distorted, even at lower volumes. The lack of a Mute or CD Pause button is also a big drawback. We also didn't like the audio conflict between the stereo and navigation system--we couldn't always hear the navigation instructions over the stereo.
