How do I know if I have the Alpine radio?

I know this sounds dumb as hell. But it’s not listed on the window sticker and the car was purchased at one dealer and shipped over. Door speakers say, ALPINE sound system so I started to think it had the upgraded radio and nobody knew. I have 2 speakers in the doors, 3 in the dash (at least i think i have a right/left/center I uploaded a photo) and in the back I have absolutely no idea where the speakers are even located but by changing the radio it seems to be distinct left/right/center channels. I just don’t see any subs or amps anywhere? I thought the stock system was 6 speakers but I have 5 just up front? Thanks!

Should be speakers in the rear deck IIRC. No visible grills on those.

That’s what I figured and I can hear 3. So that’s 8 speakers, doesn’t that mean it’s in fact the upgraded system?

the base Alpine system is 6 speakers (276W) [2 dash / 2 door / 2 rear deck]

the Sound Group II Alpine is 9 + sub (506W) [3 dash / 2 door / 2 rear deck + sub in rear deck]
-the rear interior quarter trim panels will have 3" speaker grills visible

the Performance Sound (Harmon Kardon 900W) states as 18 speakers + subwoofer
-this uses 3 way / 2 way speakers in the same locations as the SG II option plus the dual sub module in trunk floor storage well.


I've attached an image of my '16 which has the SG II option to illustrate the rear quarter speakers (high & mids)

Thanks for the info! I don’t have any in the rear quarter panels. I’m confused why it looks to be 3 in the front? Maybe it’s just the sensor for the rain sensitive wipers? I don’t know.

all have the center grill in the dash (with an empty spot) so that there's one less version of that to build.

that sensor is for the automatic headlights

Amps have previously at least, resided under the dash above the pedals, near the TCM I believe
