I'm new to the forum. About a month in with my new SE 2.0T and loving everything about it. EXCEPT the terrible sound system. I stuck with Package 1, not Nav package. I couldn't see spending 2900 when all I wanted was a better sound system. And that brings me to this post!
Has anyone upgrade the sound system? I'm looking to keep the head unit, but replace the speakers and add anything needed. Is there an amp with the stock system? Before I start peeling apart the trunk to find it (or not), I figured I'd ask here! Would swapping out the speakers alone give me more clarity? I'm not looking for anything heavy, just better quality. And I'm tired of hearing everything come from the front dash. It seems like the front and rear door speakers only add midrange. I've played around with the fade and EQ settings, but it does very little. And the volume is terrible! I'm used to playing music on 10 out of 50 on my 05 Elantra with a simple Sony head unit and pioneer speakers. Now I'm cranking the volume up to 30 out of 45 just to hear it over the city noise.
Does anybody have any recommendations? Be it speakers, amps, crossovers, subs... What have you done? Any advice would be great! I'm tired of listening to quiet muddy music!
