: Why does my stereo sound like ....

02-17-07, 10:38 PM
I just got my 98 STS today.

One of the first things I noticed was the radio I have the levels set properly. Bass, treble, fade, balance, etc and it seems like I have hardly any bass at all.

I'm very new to the audio system in the STS but not new to car audio.

It appears this car has a subwoofer located in the centre of the rear deck and it appears to be functioning but the lack of bass is evident.

Any advice?

sometime this summer i'm getting a new sub for the trunk just a small 10" something or another, probably W8v2

i recommend the same if you're worried about bass

If you want nice bass you be best off getting an after market system.
