    Whining noise in both seat speakers...

    I have a 2013 platinum Cadillac xts and was noticing a whining noise only when listening to talk shows on xm radio (howard stern). The dealer replaced the mounting screws and also ordered new sets of speakers for both seats, however, the noise is still present. Is anyone else experiencing the same issue? It is not noticeable when playing regular music. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...s/confused.gif

    Sir,
    Scroll on down till you get to " seat speakers blown?" just above " subwoofer rattling". Welcome to the XTS poor audio club...

    Hello macklobell,

    I apologize that you are experiencing a whining noise from your speakers when you are listening to talk shows. I do see that you have involved your dealership’s service department regarding this concern. Could you provide me your name, contact info, VIN, mileage, and dealership you are working with in a private message so that I can reach out to them regarding this issue? Thank you very much for taking the time to read my post.

    Out of curiosity if I have already provided the same information that you have requested from Macklobell to other GM experts like Katie and Laura in the past yet I still have poor audio quality is there really anything that GM intends to do about this issue? Or are we being mislead by your social media team. Its an honest question Sir, I would appreciate an honest answer in return. IMO.

    Hello CoffeeCan,

    I apologize that you are still experiencing poor audio quality in your XTS. You are not being misled, we look at the concerns we receive from our customers on a case by case basis. I would be more than happy to look into your case from when you provided your information to Katie or Laura and look into the outcome and see if anything further can be done if you would like. I will also document these concerns regarding the XTS speakers and pass them along to the correct group to make sure they are made aware of the situation. Thank you very much for reaching out to me regarding this issue.

    Gregory,

    Thank you for documenting my concerns and passing them on. I started this campaign in January along with some other forum participants in an attempt to resolve this issue. To date, two dealers, Cadillac Customer Service and GM Social Media have not provided a cure for the poor audio quality that we have experienced. We have been ignored and therefore forced to take the final step, Court. Now that's a shame. If we loose we will take the loss and move on. That would be a shame too. Thank you for this forum and the opportunity to at least search for solutions to our concerns.

    Hello CoffeeCan,

    I apologize that the issue regarding your speakers has not been resolved and that it has led to the level that it is at now. I have documented your concerns, along with the other thread regarding this issue and forwarded it to the correct group within our organization. I apologize that due to your legal representation I will not be able to assist you further in your case. I must direct you to your attorney and the agent that your attorney is working with in our department. I hope that a resolution is reached soon. Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to me.
