SRT High performance audio settings

What settings are you all using for the eq? I am having trouble matching audio quality I get in my 2010 f150 platinum with this system

Re: SRT High performance audio settings

Be sure you're not trying to optimize in XM/Sirius. HD Radio, high quality MP3 from SD card or USB, bluetooth streaming, or Slacker/apps have substantially better quality in general. I think either Sirius compression is just too much, or the system decodes it poorly. Sirius quality is notably worse across the board.

FYI mine is Bass 0, Mid +2 and Treble maxed, but obviously this is all subjective. I have terrible tinnitus so generally like the treble maxed out or things sound dull.

Yep using good quality mp3's on an sd card and cannot get it as good as my 2010 f150 platinum stereo.

Re: SRT High performance audio settings

bass -4
mid 0
treble +2

I found a sweet spot by moving the fader slightly towards the rear/passenger side. I listen at spirited volumes so I didn't want the closest speaker to dominate, and for me the bass gets bloated and sloppy when I approach 0. Experiment with Surround On/Off and see what you prefer. My music is ALAC from a 160gb iPod classic. As mentioned, Sirius/XM is pathetic.

Traded in a 2014 Summit for the 2015 SRT. Same 19 speaker HK system, but for some reason the Summit sounded so much better playing the exact same mp3 material off USB. Summit would also play louder. Cant figure it out....

Re: SRT High performance audio settings

320 kb/s file sizes are optimal, 160 is the minimum I would ever use for digital files. I have a 3.0 16GB USB and 64GB SD (both Samsung) that I use for my drives (about 8000 songs)

Settings:

Bass (-2)
Mid (+1)
Treble (+2)

Been tweaking with it a lot lately and I have my E/Q with Surround on (idk why but it seems to sound better with Surround on...thoughts??) and -1 towards the rear...centered otherwise.

Would love to hear what others are setting for their 19 HK systems...
