    Model Y Subwoofer Bass Mod

    One issue I‘ve had with my Model Y compared to my old Model 3 is that there’s hardly any bass at all from the audio system, it wasn’t amazing in the M3, but it was noticeably better than the MY. If I turn the bass and sub sliders all the way up then there is some bass, but it’s very muddy...

    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...

    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...

    SR+ Front window corner speakers no audio?

    Took delivery of my SR+ last week. Car is great, except I've been disappointed with the audio. I learned a few days ago that the speakers at the top of hte A pillar only work with 'immersive sound', which is currently not an option in SR+ (I'm assuming in a future software release) However...

    Speaker input not working

    I can hear people when I make a phone call but they can't hear me. Also, the microphone to play a song, navigate etc does not pick up on anything I say.

    Mysterious static/hissing noise

    Looking for help troubleshooting: Recently picked up my new Tesla M3 and after a day of driving noticed this sound coming from underneath/behind the glove box. (Link to the sound - ).

    New Ownership Impressions and Advice

    I love the car, it's faster than expected. Solidly built. Intuitive, if you play with the menu screen while it's parked first. Definitely needs a home charging station installed (at least a 240V plug). Here's a detailed review after picking up the 2018 Model 3, and the first 300 miles driven...

    Stopping the door grill rattles

    Has anyone been able to stop the annoying rattles coming from the door speaker grills? I used a frequency generator set to 80Hz and they come alive. Pulling the grills out immediately stops the rattling. Such a crappy design.

    New Model S to make noise so pedestrians hear the car similar to a ICE car?

    I read some time ago that silent running EVs were being blamed for accidents because people didn't hear them. I heard that the new updated front end has a outward facing speaker so people can hear the car coming. Can anybody confirm this? If so will it increase cabin noise?

    P85D Strange Clicking Front Left Speaker (with link to video)

    Hey, I was driving today listening to Slacker when a loud repeating "click" sound started from the front left of the car. It seemed like a speaker or sound system glitch because the other systems (like hvac, air suspension, etc) had no effect. Interestingly it only came from one of the front...
