For 6 speaker systems, there are 4 channels, and there appears to be a passive crossover for the front two speakers on each front channel.
After 5 years, we find that the reliability is near perfect. Best viewed in bright sunlight, and flip it over, check both sides, check more than once. Toyota stock stereo's are among the worst if you are a true audiophile. The powertrain's also been reconfigured for less weight, and contrary to expectations, a bump in displacement from 1.
