AVIC D3 EQ settings, has never sounded right
Before I scrap this unit and go back to a single din, does anyone who is familiar or have this unit explain how to properly set the EQ on this thing? I always have just left it to the pre set EQ options and fooled with those but now that I am changing up my system I can't get it to sound clean at all. It is in a Silverado w/Bose speakers. It seems either I can get great sound through the speakers and the subs get muddy or I can get the subs to sound good and the mids/highs disappear. I can't figure out how to set each individual freq correctly. I was always told to avoid using the LOUD feature and start off Flat and tune from there but I just can't get it. There are also a bunch of other options like, Music Studio, Dynamic, Actor's stage and Living Room which I have no idea in what they actually do and if i should even mess them. I can tell the difference in sound with those but not sure what its actually doing to the signal going to the speakers.
When I had my CDA9886, it was a lot easier to set up and it sounded a lot cleaner, the wow factor the D3 is great and it looks great in my dash but I'm tired of nothing sounded properly.
