Stock 350Z sound system. Non-Bose
Just installed one in my 350Z. Love it! Except for the sound quality. The midrange is absolutely HARSH!!!! The only way I am able to make it sound decent is to set the midrange to 2k on the 3band parmetric eq and then max it out (-8). It helps, but it still seems to get harsh when your half to 3/4 volume.
Bass is set to flat
mid set to 2k, -8
high set to 17.5, +2
Now before you blame the stock speakers, I have experienced the EXACT same problem with the exact model in a Chrysler 300, Ford Ranger, and another 350Z running a 4 channel amp. These were all customer cars that bought the 7015 new. All cars required you to set the mid to -6 to -8 to get the harshness to ease up.
It would seem that the addition of an eq would remeady this, but remember, we are starting out with what appears to be a screwed up signal.
Has anyone else out there experienced this?
Anyone have any suggestion?
NOT the install. 9 year veteran of car audio install. Never experienced something this extream with no more than a head unit install.
