Re: Stereo Audio Settings

The factory defaults sound fine to me. But I don't crank it up to window-rattling levels.

Maybe you're expecting too much? Fart around all you want, but the audio system and speakers will still sound only okay. The only class act audio with the WK2 (reportedly) comes from the optional system on the SRT8, in case you hit the lottery lately.

Re: Stereo Audio Settings

even with the nicer system in my Overland, it still sounds like crap compared to my BMW - it kind of flat and tinny sounding. Listening to Sirius makes it even worse.

I would love the Harmon Karden system that's in my wife's BMW. I don't find the GC's unlistenable, but it isn't fabulous either.

To answer the OP, I have Bass set to +1, Mid 0, Treb +4.

Re: Stereo Audio Settings

I adjust my Bass, Mid, and Treble for almost every song. Anyone know if the stock 6 speaker system has a sound limiter in it? Like if you crank up the bass to high can you blow a speaker?

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Bass all the way up, mid 2 clicks, treble 1 click. Sounds awesome on any volume level for my liking.

This is a SRT8 19 speaker HK system though.
