    Sound system

    My '06 dts sound system is not as good (bass) as my '03 deville. Can anyone give me suggestions? I've seen an amplifier mounted behind the back seat left with the word "monsoon". My center rear mounted woofer is barely active. I use the manual(not equalizer) setting on full bass and it is weak at best. Thanks!

    On my BOSE system... if the CD has a lot of bass and I turn the volume up... it will make the inside rearview mirror and the mirrors on the doors, shake/vibrate...

    If you find a solution, please post it. I too have the standard sound system. I have thought about installing better speakers in the doors, but I haven't done anything yet.

    The subwooter is using the trunk as a enclosure which is not a very good at reproducing bass.

    This might help to understand. The Bose system uses different impedance speaker system.

    Subwoofers are made up of one or more woofers in a loudspeaker enclosure capable of withstanding air pressure while resisting deformation. Subwoofer enclosures come in a variety of designs, including bass reflex (with a port or passive radiator in the enclosure), infinite baffle, horn-loaded, and bandpass designs, representing unique tradeoffs with respect to efficiency, bandwidth, size and cost. Passive subwoofers have a subwoofer driver and enclosure and they are powered by an external amplifier. Active subwoofers include a built-in amplifier.

    Re: Sound system

    Still waiting for some suggestions about this problem. Can I add another amp just for the sub-woofer? Has anyone done this and if so what were the results? I see lots of threads with comments, but I don't see many bonafide solutions. Come on everyone I KNOW there has to be someone out there that has improved the audio systems in this car!!!!! lol :-)
