I'm assuming that the default settings aren't the optimal settings...what is the consensus on the best settings in MFT for the speaker setup?

I don't know about reaching a consensus, but this is how I have mine set up:
Bass +1, Midrange +4, Treble +2
Fade 3 back, Balance 3 right

I did a lot of tweeking and found this set up the best for my style of music and gives me a good balance of speakers for the driver's seat. I listen to mostly classic rock, early indie, jazz and country, sometimes in the "turn down that damn music" range but mostly in the mid volume range. Works for me.

I find a lot of the adjustments are way too coarse. The detents on the center knob and steering wheel switches should make finer adjustments. Maybe .5 db instead of 1 db per knotch. The speed sensitive volume is very sensitive and I can only put on like a 2 of a 10 scale.

You can find the sound settings can work for you differently depending on your taste and the type of music your listening to. Personally I like heavy treble and bass with a middle of the road midrange. Since I dont have my car yet though I can only guess at how I'll set it up.

Plus you also have to factor in your source. For instance if you are listening to the radio they are already boosting certain aspects of the music.

Does anyone know if an aftermarket 10 band EQ would be able to be added to the existing setup in such a way that the EQ would be hidden from view but still accessible to adjust from drivers seat?

That's what I have in my truck right now (although not hidden from view) and I noticed a huge difference after adding that component and adjusting for a nice flat frequency response.

I think the JBL MS-8 would really make the Sony system shine. I know I'd go this route before swapping out anything else.

Quite so, also older people the loose higher frequencies first and may need to compensate with more treble.
That could very well be me. Although at 40 I don't consider myself old (yet), I have had more than my fair share of exposure to high levels of sound via various car stereo systems over the years.
