    Sub, rear speakers not working. 2021 M3P

    I’ve had this 2021 M3P for two weeks. Still under full warranty but the sub and rear speakers aren’t connecting. As far as I remember (could be wrong) this happened right after I took it threw the first car wash (in car wash mode) and the seal let water in through the drivers side door...

    Aftermarket Subwoofer in 22 M3P

    I’ve been looking around for information on and off for about a year now regarding adding an aftermarket subwoofer and amplifier to my car. Anyone have any experience and want to share their setup or issues? For some other info, I have a 2022 Model 3 P with the factory subwoofer in the trunk...

    Adding a subwoofer to factory amp.

    I have a Kicker down firing subwoofer enclosure that I would like to connect to my 2023 Model Y. I want to keep the factory amp and current subwoofer. Is there a splitter or adapter that I can buy to do this? Will this even work and would it be worth it? I don’t have much interest in spending a...

    15.5V AMD M3 - Subwoofer Install w/no 2nd battery?

    Hi guys, I’ve scoured through all of the threads of sub installs on my car and I’ve gathered tons of information so far and the verdict seems that with the new 15.5v system that you must use a second battery. Another thing I’ve noticed is that most people are running into issues with higher...

    Trunk disassembly / modifications / sound dampening

    Has anyone taken apart their trunk in order to add a subwoofer and/or sound dampening material? My UHFS subwoofer sounds very boomy and I’m considering adding some sound dampening material. There appears to be some sound proofing already underneath the carpet. Additionally there is some type of...

    Subwoofer and Door Speakers dead for months

    I have recently been to service and had a frustrating experience where the techs could not fix the issue as presented, though they acknowledged it. The solution was literally to wait for a couple of updates and see if they would fix things automagically. If this is an issue with my car, maybe it...

    Missing independent subwoofer control

    I just noticed today that my m3 no longer has the independent subwoofer control. It’s back to the way it originally was. I didn’t see anything in any software update. Anyone else notice this?

    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...

    Loss of Rear Speakers and Subwoofer?

    Hi all! I have a 2019 M3, just updated to software 2021.24.11, which until today has not given me any issues beyond a few flat tires. However, as I was leaving work today I heard an annoying clicking sound from my backseat, and realized my sound system seemed to only be operating from the front...

    Awesome Model 3 subwoofer boost install

    Just had my Tesla Model 3 upgraded with subwoofer and loving it! Even though I already had the Premium sound system, I can now feel the lows and the system is tuned such that the touchscreen EQ kicks the sub level up/down. If you are in the Minneapolis region, the installer was Innovative...

    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...

    Is it possible to increase the volume of the OEM subwoofer?

    Hi all, I just got my 2021 Model 3 AWD LR not long ago and it's an awesome car. My only complaint right now is that the lower frequencies of the songs I listen to aren't very loud/audible, even after boosting the lows in the EQs. I don't feel like I'm getting an accurate playback of any song...

    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

    Strange low frequency rumbling sounds.

    Hi all, This is my first post on the forums as I just received my 2021 Model 3 SR+ last week. So far I absolutely love it, but have noticed a strange intermittent low frequency rumbling coming from the car while in park, and while driving. The best way to describe the sound is a 2 second...

    Stock amp power for aftermarket amp turn-on?

    Working through my Model 3 Premium audio upgrade. There is a lot of discussion/advice about where to get your turn-on signal for your after market amp, but I'm not sold on running a line all the way from the front of the car (VC left or cigarette socket). I haven't seen anyone mention using the...

    Audison Prima powered sub

    Has anyone installed one of the Audison Prima active subwoofers in their model 3? I picked one up today and hoping to install this weekend. Curious about the best place to tap into 12v. At the battery or at the dcdc converter post? I've read a few posts about issues creeping up after a while...

    Parting out Ultra-High Fidelity Sound system (Model X)

    So, I'm upgrading from the UHFS that came with my Model X to some custom gear; and I'm gauging interest in other X owners who might want to upgrade their non-UHFS Model X to Tesla's OEM UHFS. If you're looking for any of these parts (supposedly ~18 drivers scattered throughout the car), hit me up!

    Aftermarket Subwoofer?

    I'm having a difficult time justifying the $2500 for the Ultra High Fidelity system. Has anyone installed a subwoofer and is there a stock connection/port somewhere? There has to be right? Thanks for your help. I'll take this $2500 and put it towards the 85D if I can swing it!
