Bose isn't clear at all IMO... Those cubes you see at Best Buy? 2" paper cone with a cheap integrated tweeter. I've seen where those drivers cost next to nothing for bose. Then shove it in a plastic box (bad for sound) that'* way too small (bad for sound) and run it at weird power levels. And a "subwoofer" with multiple 3" or 4" drivers? Cmon... All marketing.
The bose system in Bonneville'* doesnt' last long like mentioned. It'* not horrible, but the premium sound system, that'* not bose (usually found in SE, SLE) will play louder, and in used cars will sound MUCH better. When you switch components out, you don't have to worry about the amp and crazy wiring associated with the blose system.
