Current stock speakers in Foci do sound pretty good for whizzer cone-equipped "one way" OEM cheapies. Upgrading to BA S85s recently, though, quickly revealed the stockers' shortcomings: bass is a bit muddy (pretty good thump, though!) and the high end is harsh and fatiguing to listen to at louder volume. Both low and high frequencies lack definition when compared to the Boston Acoustics.
