I am hoping that you guys in the US have made a start on this having had the car for longer than the UK.

Has anyone started to look at what can be done to improve the sound quality of the stereo? It isn't that it is bad, I would just like to make it better (not louder).

Is there a particular aspect you find lacking? I’ve found that the quality heavily depends on the input source. Moving between a strong FM signal and SiriusXM in my car has major audio quality differences. I’ve found the sound system a massive upgrade from the Bose system in my 997.2, so I’m not the best judge of quality as I’d often just turn the music down to listen to the engine :rock:

It’s more the accuracy of the sound, I find the bass a little boomy too.
I used to have a JL Audio clean sweep and it was amazing. The new ones look good too.

"no highs and no lows it must be Bose"…

I'm finding the sound system pretty good for an automobile but maybe I'm missing something.

Which is better: the strong FM signal or the SiriusXM?

For me it would already be interesting if the Bose system could be retrofitted, i.e. over the baseline sound system.

If the bass sounds boomy just tick the "linear" setting in the Bose settings. That will remove the boom. It will sound more flat then. Bass will still come through when it's supposed to. Try that out.
