Does your other car and home stereo have a subwoofer? Most likely not. That is the function of a subwoofer- it is supposed to enhanced the bass, which in this case is mid-bass (real bass is so low as to be barely audible). It basically enhances the bass throughout the audio spectrum. As the next poster pointed out, lower the bass on the equalizer- more than halfway down (even at 50% it is still quite strong) and then you call tell the difference right away. Also most home stereos sound half decent because that is the way they are designed. On a good high-end system, average recordings sound mediocre while good recordings sound stunning.

Re: 19 Speakers - Dissapointed

Yes, my home stereo has a separate subwoofer, but I can turn it down and it sounds good.
I also notice the bass too high on the front door speakers so I have to fade way to the rear. I think the speakers are great and the system has potential, but the equalizer control sucks.
I will take the previous poster's comment, use an equalizer app.

Re: 19 Speakers - Dissapointed

There are equalizer apps out there that can really enhance the sound from your smart phones.

There are plenty ,so you have to see which one you like best.

I'm using one now and it really helps.

Re: 19 Speakers - Dissapointed

Greetings,

Here is one that is highly recommended.

BBE Sonic Max

I am sure that once you look it up on either app's store, other will be listed as well.

Best for now.

Re: 19 Speakers - Dissapointed

So is 32 the max?? I guess I have never looked at the blue bar graph when @ 28. Will crank it on a bad recording and see...

It is not the best system...BUT when set properly (treb/mid/bass), surround on/off (depending on preference...I like surround on Pink Floyd for example) and 320 kb/s on the recording from the USB/SD card, it is more than adequate. I have had a lot of systems in the past, and this is by far the best stock system for pure listening and clarity (obviously not SPL). Try some high-end mp3's and see if it helps; then set the audio settings.

Re: 19 Speakers - Dissapointed

Wow OP, I wish I knew what to tell you, but the 19 speaker HK audio sounds incredible!! I have a '14 Summit and no complaints whatsoever about the stereo. Easily the best I have had in any car. With a high quality sound file its outstanding! My personal settings are as follows:
Surround sound ON
Bass set to 3 below center
Mid is about centered
Treble is all the way up
Speakers are all centered.
