  • Bose Premium available for 1LT?

    I am pretty sure I know the answer but has anyone heard any word on if it's possible to get the Bose premium system if ordering 1LT?
    I love my audio systems but can't justify spending the $7k on the 2LT package if I only care about the stereo upgrade.

            What's "iot $1795"?

            To John:
            I'm actually familiar with car audio as I was an installer for many years back in the day (this is why I'm so passionate about the stereo) at a local shop but In my older age i'm a fan of leaving things as stock as possible.
            Wish I could hear the base Bose stereo to see what I think.

              Back to the thread: I think the upgraded (600+Watt) stereo only comes with 2LT/3LT, but I see in posts below that it may be an option available with 1LT!?!

                  IOT is the RPO code for the upgraded entertainment system for the 1LT. It includes the upgraded 14 speaker audio system and Nav / PDR. It may be a delayed availability option, however, as it's not listed on the pricing tool that GM provided previously.

                    Ahhh okay awesome.....Yeah computer nerd here, when I hear IOT I think "Internet Of Things"
                    Glad to hear the 14 speaker could potentially be a future option on the 1LT. It's really all I want.

                    Has there been any specs posted about the 10 speaker system?

                      I don't think there have been any specs posted for either system.

                        While IOT does show as available as an option on 1LT models the UQH 14 speaker stereo shows as not available. It appears when ordering IOT with 1LT the upgraded stereo is not included, or the order guide is wrong.

                          Here's some info on the premium stereo system (14 speakers, 640W of power), beginning at 48:04...

                            I think 10 speakers is sufficient in that small cockpit. Besides, the real music is coming from behind you.

                              The 10 speaker system is actually labelled as the 'Bose Premium' system. It appears to be equal to or better than the best available systems found in every other Chevy vehicle, so I think it's important to keep in mind this isn't basic to begin with. The 14 speaker system is the 'Bose Performance' system. The differences are: 14 speakers vs 10, 640 watts/125dB vs 400/118dB, metal grilles vs plastic grilles, and the Performance has 'advanced staging technology'. That seems to be it.


                              The IOT on the 1LT gives you GPS Navigation and the front camera/Data Recorder. Everything else about the stereo and speakers remains the same.
