I agree the bass is lacking at times, but serious for those who say turning up the volume to FULL isn't enough.....whhaatt????? Wow lol. I think the highs and mids get very loud, and sound pretty clear....its just the bass issues.

Its strange...some songs on my BA system sound great and have a good amount of bass....some songs it "tries" to output the bass but it ends up sounding horrible...and finally some songs its just plain missing the bass. (My last vehicle had two 10s in the back, so thats definitely why I'm noticing this stuff!)

In my opinion, as another member said before I think adding one good 10" sub would complete the system and make it sound much better, much fuller. Now of course if your someone who wants heart pounding bass you will want even more than that.

My speakers are blown but I don't want the weaker amp. Is there any way I can get new speakers under warranty w/o the service bulletin dictating that I can't keep something more powerful (amp) I paid for it, and I just want the speakers replaced.

If you're playing MP3s, make sure the file has a good bitrate. Crappy bitrate=crappy sound.

Mine works just fine for me, never had it past 20--and thought my ears were going to blow then!

A lot of folks have aid that disconnecting the center channel speaker in the dash makes a big improvement to the sound. I plan to do that when I get my car back from the shop.

I also added dual subwoofers and amp. That helped a TON with sound quality.

Thats what I want too. Is your car brand new or pre owned?
Mine the bass is the rear 2 speakers seem to be dead or had been blown. And the speakers were for a BA system for a Chrysler!

Man, I've had mine cranked past 35 to full without any appreciable ear damage...

Yup, the BA system is less then impressive considering it is the upgraded audio system. I adjusted the Balance to 60/40 biased to the rear...seemed to help bring the Bass out a bit more, but yeah, not very good IMO.

I have an 8" amped Bazooka tube to "compliment" my system. It fits the bill for now....

Mine sux..... I don't like really loud music, but I do like clear crisp moderate volume sound. That is what I expected from BA premium. I expected it to at least be better than my base model ram truck.

I'm not a fan of the stock system, but I can do without upgrading for a while. I also listen to just about everything; that includes rap, metal, classical, country, and reggae so sound quality really is kind of important to me. Right now though I'm focusing on engine/exhaust sound and cosmetics. Audio will be after my wheels which are after my headers.

Synyster - where in Fla? We can give you great musicality with all types of music, at all levels (it's not all about just bass, or just loud!). On a slightly more advanced system, I can even do presets to deliver more accurate sound for most music, with another one for increased bass when the mood calls for by changing crossover points, equalization, and of course levels. Not saying don't do cosmetics and wheels...but once your INSIDE the car, you don't see those. Me, I'd spend the $ first where I'm gonna enjoy it most...
With the engine upgrades, I can set you up with a K40 or Passport radar/laser suite. Adam and Tyler (our GM Master Tech) can take care of you with respect to alol of your appearance and performance needs. Come see us!
