: Amp or speakers ?

06-23-2012, 09:17 PM
I have no bass and most of my speakers hiss and crackle. From what I've read it sounds like the L7 amp is the problem not the speakers? Can the amp be repaired or is there an aftermarket solution? I'm new on the block and appreciate any assistance.

1st off Welcome to the fest:D. Yes the AMP can be repaired. I have a few questions for you

1. Does your voice command work?
2. Can you hear the door chime when you open the door or have the key in the ignition?
3. Which Speakers crackle?

Thanks for the help. My voice command and door chimes work fine. I have no bass and the L7 equalizer has very little impact on the sound quality. The hissing and crackling sounds like it is primarily coming from the rear door speakers but to be honest the whole thing sounds crappy. I turn my radio down when in public. The sound gets a little clearer when you crank the volume up but still no bass and sound tin like. I will try to contact the member IM you sent me ASAP. Love my car but hating the sound right now.
