I've heard that the BA system has the same cheap paper speakers as the base system, they really do put the cheapest crap in they can, makes me wonder about the rest of the car, the base system sounds good too, it has good tone, but it was only 160 watts so you can't get much volume, Just my personal Opinion but I believe all cars need to have a good amp and good speakers installed, OEM just doesn't cut it for me, it's the best money you'll spend on your car.
I have the base system which is 4 speakers & 2 tweeters, I'm upgraded with 4 JBL speakers and a 600 watt amp connected to the stock HU, and I'm very satisfied with that. I don't think tweeters do anything. I probably should have upgraded them but I didn't want to spend the extra $100..
so obviously the BA is much better than the Base system, but really your money is much better spent investing in aftermarket equipment,
2014 is a sexy car though, kind of wish I would have waited a couple years too,
2012 1LS Silver Ice - Mods - SS Strut Brace, RX Catch Can, BBK CAI, TRS Bi-Xenon HID's, Blackout Grill, RX65 Radar Detector, 700watt 4 Channel Amp with Kicker Speakers, 4Pack Gauges Added, 30% tint. Baer Drilled Rotors & pads, 20" American Racing. Awesome car.
