Angry boston acoustic premium system sounds horrible

So I test drove 2010 1lt Camaro for the weekend with the ba premium 9 speaker and it sounded amazing. It was clear and clean with good bass. I decided to get 2011 2lt with same options same ba system. It sounds like crap compared to the 2010. Its like Im getting very little bass and sound for that matter from my rear speakers. When I turn up it distorts. I have adjusted levels a thousand times trying to figure out why it doesnt sound good. I have faded sound to just back and they sound like crap. This is the exact same amp and speakers as the 2010. If anyone knows the answer let me know thanks.

Same issue here. Once the bass comes in, it's a done deal. A song I generally test with, Beyonce feat. jay-Z - Upgrade You. That song a good range of bass, and tends to kill speakers that can't hang. The BA can't hang at all.

Disconnect the center speaker....Read in audio section. A few of us have done it and it sounds alot better.

I'm going to say the problem is you are listening to heavy bass. If you want a lot of thump you're gonna need to add a sub. Unlike some systems in other cars the BA in the Camaro doesn't have a separate sub. So lots of bass will kill the speakers.

Now that's funny!


I hate to throw water on the party, but, with only one post you (the OP) come on here hacking about the sound system? Something doesn't smell right. (just sayin'.)

hells yeah!!!

and BTW, half way thru the run in 2010 they changed the amp in the BA system. Too many people were blowing their speakers, so they tuned down the amps. I blew my speaker and had to specifically tell the service manager NOT to change out my amp.

see this thread for more info....

I disconnected the center speaker at the speaker itself, and it does sound much better. Try that and then make your changes to your settings.

An audio tech said not to disconnect from the speaker and especially don't cut the wire as this will cause feedback into the amp damaging it. Can the audio tech's out there either validate or invalidate this statement??? Thanks

Not cutting the wire I can understand. But why should one not disconnect the speaker? did they give any reasoning for this?

you never want to push signal through an amp to a lead (wire) that has no speaker load to release to, if you disconnect the lead from the amplifier itself you'll be fine.
