How is it in practice?
The cargo area in my 2015 with the Bose unit is larger than the 2011 (onboard charger in 2011 and 2012 takes some room behind rear seat) so it did not bother me. Initially, I tried to avoid stacking heavy stuff on the subwoofer. Eventually, I stopped worrying about it and I now just throw stuff in the back. So far, I have not damaged the Bose unit.
I was never happy with the door speakers in the 2011 and always planned to replace them so it was a given that I would get the Bose system when I was forced to replace the 2011. As delivered, the Bose system was somewhat better than the 2011, but I was not really happy with it. After I had the 2015 for a while, I was going through the menus on the navigation system and found the audio adjustments. I was amazed at the difference that the menu adjustments made.
