Audio subwoofer upgrade
I have a 2011 XC90 D5. I don't know which sound system I actually have since I got this car after my family got a new one (I can only adjust balance and fader, can't see any dolby settings).
My bother with the audio is that the bass and power don't seem sufficient. As soon as I listen to music with proper bass content, the entire sound get's more silent as a beat hits (you instead of kicks you hear more silent, mushy bass and silent treble). I want to combat this by adding an aftermarket subwoofer, but will this solve the "silence" occuring at every beat? Or is this because of the EQ? Is the alternator even powerful enough for a proper subwoofer setup?
You'll want to use the Search function.
Lots of threads with information. Do you have third row seating? I have a five passenger and installed aftermarket sub as referenced here:. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/top...ink_source=app

I've got a 7-seater, so I'm thinking about adding the sub in the side of the cargo bay.
I've used the search function but mostly found popular, but old threads with 100ds of externally hosted (and now gone) images...
I have 7 seater. Just installed a under the seat sub. Tapped into the the back speakers at the amp. Sound great!
