    MCU2 Upgrade Audio EQ Balancing - Coming From MCU1

    Background as to why I did this project: I own an October 2016 model S 90D. This was one of the first autopilot two cars made (which I paid for), ordered with the premium sound upgrade, and came with MCU 1. When I first took delivery of the car, I thought the sound system was excellent and much...

    Sound system quality

    I am not sure if it's just me, but I find the sound quality in my MX to be mediocre at best. This car was built in May 2019 so it has the latest hardware and software but the equalizer function is useless. Memory settings would be a nice start, since the settings are different depending on the...

    EQ settings now top out at 8?? Where my 12?

    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...
