    V11 - how to disable/hide audio sources

    In the previous v10 there was a recent-ish update that gave the user the ability to choose which audio sources to use. I can’t find a way to do this in v11 - and I would like to turn off some audio sources when searching for music. The old manual : “Use the icons across the bottom of Media...

    Music randomly blares from speakers at full volume

    Sometimes when I enter my model 3 and I press play on my music that comes from my phone, the car's audio will be turned up to max volume which gives me a heart attack and hurts my ears every time. My phones volume is completely independent from the displayed car volume so that's not the issue...

    Speaker on A pillar either extremely quiet or not working

    I have had my Tesla Model 3 AWD (with premium interior) for a week and I'm a little concerned about the speakers on the A pillars. If I use the radio on there's no sound at all that comes from them (even with my ear jammed up against it) however if I use Spotify (either streaming via the car...

    Awesome Model 3 subwoofer boost install

    Subwoofer Options for Model S (standard Audio)

    What are all of the common options for a relatively cheap and relatively simple (at least once an amp/crossover is installed) for adding a Subwoofer to a pre-2016 non-Premium audio system? I like how the audio sounds just would like more oomph while avoiding a huge cost. I've been Googling and...

    Audio installation recommendations in either LA or SF Bay Area?

    I'm looking to have an (NVX, Sound Qubed, or similar) amp and subwoofer installed in my Model S and was wondering if anyone has an installer they'd recommend? Mobile installation would be ideal, but quality and value come first Thanks in advance for any thoughts

    Spotify update - where is my songs list?

    Title says it all. I updated to the latest version and the spotify app is much improved. However, i can't seem to find a place to play all my "liked" songs. I generally just shuffle play through my library for the most part. Did the ability to do that disappear? Thanks for the help.

    Sounds Quality compared to Model 3

    Hello All, We sold our Model 3 and currently waiting for our Y to be shipped to Alaska. I am curious for any of you who have had the Model 3 and currently have the Y, how does the sound quality compare to the 3? Do we know how many speakers/sub-woofers/tweeters the Y has compared to 3? We...

    Model 3 SR+ Premium Sound System Upgrade Video

    Hi everyone, a few weeks ago I completed the premium sound system upgrade for my Model 3. I recorded a video detailing the steps, but unfortunately I couldn't record while I was doing the work since it was dark and I needed both hands most of the time. However, I go step by step and try to...

    Issues with TuneIn playback

    I've had problems before with TuneIn...most are minor. However the most recent couple of "upgrades" add some new features as well as bugs. The new features include being able to playback at 1.25, 1.5 and 2x normal speed. Youtube has been able to smoothly change these speeds for years. But I...

    incremental premium audio upgrades?

    I've premium audio in my Model 3 but would like to conduct incremental upgrades to the audio system w/o too much complexity, dissassembly or cost involved (e.g ideally wouldn't require addition of amps, crossovers, et cetera). Has anyone simply replaced the factory speakers (or a subset of...

    Only Default Stations Showing in Tunein

    I am a total newb when it comes to Tunein. I am tired of paying the exorbitant fees to Sirius for the 2-4 stations that I ever listen to in the car (Model X, 2017). Saw the Tunein option on the Tesla menu and decided to look into it. On PC, registered for free Tunein account, and saw the...

    Dumb Question: To supress explicit lyrics, do I switch the "Explicit Content" switch on or ff?

    OK, I do NOT want to hear explicit content (being the delicate flower that I am.... and I have kids). So... There is a switch labelled "Explicit Content" I think if I turn it off then I will not receive any explicit content But maybe Turning it on is enabling the explicit content filter...

    Audio Behavior Change since 2019.40.50.1

    In the past, when you would open the door to get in or out, the audio volume would automatically lower. Recently I've noticed that it's not doing that anymore. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Slacker and Spotify Observations

    I've had a hard time finding Slacker and Spotify details so I'm going to post some observations I've made in the hopes that it might help someone. If anyone wants to add on to this list, please do so. To start, let me say that since v10, for me at least, voice commands will no longer directly...

    Tesla's Premium Interior Audio and the upcoming YouTube/Netflix access

    Saw this article on Techau today about the premium audio in some of our Model 3 versions. Hadn't really thought about the future ability to watch movies in a car having a great sound system, which the article points out will be coming soon. The article might make some people reconsider what...

    Audio quality after 19.16.2 update?

    Has anyone else experienced a degradation of audio quality after the 16.2 update along with reduced bass and a nearly ineffective bass equalizer slider? My "premium sound system" is compromised yet again after a software upgrade and it's especially noticeable when playing "classic rock" songs.

    Subwoofer installation on Model 3 SR+

    Hello TMC. Brand new Tesla owner! Just got my Model 3 SR+. Unfortunately I am completely useless unless I am in front of a computer screen (im a software engineer). I have no hope of installing a subwoofer myself. I'd like to find a company here in San Diego to do the install. Is this an...

    Audio and Camera Prioritzation Delays in 2019.12.x?

    Since updating to 2019.12.x I've noted delays in both the rear camera display and interestingly in the audio volume adjustments. I plan on testing this next with the HVAC (specifically with fan speed) next. Today during my ride home, I noticed a delay of 10 seconds or more between setting the...

    Android Problems With First Call

    So, this is odd. When I first get into my S and try to make a phone call using Bluetooth connecting to my Android, the first call I make has no audio. I cannot hear the call being made. I believe the person I call can hear me, but I cannot hear anything... no ringing, no talk. The call timer is...

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    Hey all! I've been plotting upgrading my speakers since I got my car in December. Upgrading the 4" speakers might not require brackets to use 2 of the 3 holes, but I also want to do the woofers up front as well (probably with the 8" Focals), and mount all the speakers as well as possible, so...

    Latest Software Update breaks "Folder View" (USB Audio)

    Having just installed the latest software update (2019.12.1.1), I find that the audio system is - once again - messed up. Specifically, this is when navigating by "Folder View" from a USB Stick. The files used to appear alphabetically, but no more! They're now randomly arranged - in fact...

    Audio Controls While Navigating

    V9 audio glitches

    I'm on V9 (2018.39.7 9736c9b) and I've been experiencing intermittent audio glitches ever since. The entire audio stack cut out (usually with some static distortion as it cuts out -- think of someone pulling a 3.5mm out of a jack while actively playing off that input, that's sort of what it...

    Network down again?

    About 12:30 Eastern, my streaming audio, internet radio, and voice commands (at least for the Bug report I was trying to make) all stopped working. Plus I could not reach the car from my mobile app. This is similar-sounding to what some people reported a few days ago when the servers...

    Feature request - recent audio sources list

    One of the most annoying parts of the model 3 audio system is the amount of steps it takes to switch from one audio source to another. It would be awesome if your default audio screen was a list of the past 5 (or more!) audio sources you've listened to, because one of those is likely what...

    How to turn off audio/radio?

    I'm hoping someone can help me. I got my car yesterday and have been unable to find an answer to this. I don't always like to listen to radio or music when I drive. For the life of me, I have been unable to figure out how to turn the audio/radio off. The media system seems very unintuitive...

    New audio misbehavior with 2018.21.9?

    I have noticed what I think is a new form of misbehavior by the audio system since the installation of the latest software update (2018.21.9 75bdbc11) a few days ago. The misbehavior occurs with the audio system playing a particular channel of streaming music. The song ends. It cues up the next...

    Audio Issue Fix per Tesla Tech Support

    Just got off the phone with Tesla. I was advised to perform a procedure that seems to be recommended for everyone. Thought I’d pass it along… I called to report an issue I had last night. All audio was inoperable including turn signals, nav & music in my Model S (2018.18 MCU2). I recalled that I...

    Cabin noise

    My impression is that the deep trunk acts as a resonance chamber for road noise so I took a look to see if there might be an easy fix. There are some noise dampening pieces on broad metal surfaces under the trunk carpet and one big sponge under the floor of the trunk. Here are pics looking under...

    Anyone else notice the latest update seems to have altered the eq settings for sound? I used to have 12 as a max setting and now 8 seems to be it. I’m a bit of an audiophile and I can already hear less bass response as well as high end treble. What the?! They better not have messed up my sound...

    Has anyone noticed recently that the built-in Streaming service has improved when trying to play a specific song? When we got our X in December 2016, I knew it was kind of hit or miss when requesting to play a specific song. For example, it might play that artist, but not the specific song...
