Hello all, I hope you'll forgive a question from an utter noob.

I have a Jeep Cherokee with stock speakers and a Sony CDX-GT565UP head unit. I've had it for about eight months now and am a little frustrated with it- no matter how I tweak it, the bass response just isn't there, and the sound just isn't 'full'... I'm no audiophile but I'm a musician. I don't see the speakers as the problem because Jah Wobble sounded fine through them with the previous head (which I had swapped out because it didn't have a USB port and I got sick of waiting till I got off the highway to change CDs).

There are a lot of layers to the control setup on this thing and a lot of the settings seem to interact with each other-- does anyone have recommendations on what settings I could plug in as a starting place?

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, I don't know anything about Sony decks - but most all head units have a function called "loudness" (sometimes abbreviated as LOUD in the menus). Turn that on. It's intended to boost both bass and trebble at low volumes and it makes a huge difference sometimes.
