    looking at the car layout, i'm gonna say that it is actually 5.1, they just happened to put in an extra pair of speakers and amp channels, and charged you another 3k for it.

    but really, I'd say it's just a 5.1 setup with 2 extra mids (2.5") in the rear deck.

    i listen to this system in the GS430 and it sounds pretty nice for stock.
