BOSE speakers vs regular
« on: July 25, 2017, 03:18:25 PM »
Hi, Are the Bose speakers which you get on some models a noticeable improvement on the standard set? I'm not fussed about deafening people at traffic lights, nor roaring through the drive-thru with the drum&bass pumping... But I'm a muso, so a nice round sound is pleasing to my ears :)

Thanks,

Hi,

Tough one to answer.

I have a 2 month old 3 Sport Nav with the Bose System.

My personal view on the Bose - At low volumes (background music and can still talk to passengers), it seems to lack mid range, biased towards treble and bass - but seems to have improved over time. The deep bass thump at low volumes is a bit distracting.

Winding it up, so the sound fills the car (but not deafening), the sound is very good. The mid range seems to be much better.

With such a premium sound system - I find it surprising that there are very few adjustments available. No decent equaliser adjustments.

For a car - definitely good. But would depend on the type of music and levels you will want.

Hope that helps.
