    I've never seen Raiders of the Lost Ark classified as belonging to the sci-fi genre.

    I posted some comments, and then deleted them, because in this day and age I don't want to be seen as an apologist for a rapist, which is what it would sound like even if logic is on your side. I do...

    I'm nearly certain it's an issue with the centre channel not downmixing properly, as it's not supposed to sound the way you characterized it. A clue for me is how you said the scene with the Coroner...

    Another cold factor is that there's no engine heat to draw from for cabin heating, so electrics need power for heating as well which impacts battery life and range significantly.
