    I received 2108.18.2 and now I am back to the settings I enjoy. As IT executive I understand the challenges of software deployments, but owning up to a know issue is key to gaining trust.

    Do you have an MCU1 or MCU2 car? (Maybe MCU2 EQ only goes to 8?)

    Got mine back from service today with 2018.18.2, and the EQ settings are restored to the original 12db range. Sound is definitely improved, although its hard now to tell if it is up to its original quality level.

    Strange. I’ve been on 18.18.2 for a week and I still have the limited eq range.

    The audio fix was only for the effected cars with MCU1. All reports I have seen, said the audio was great with MCU2 throughout this issue for the older MCU1 cars.

    Again from the reports I've read the audio only goes to 8 on an MCU2 car with or without the premium audio

    I’ve got MCU1. And the latest software. But still no change to audio quality or EQ

    Software version?
    Premium audio?
    What’s your audio source?

    I’d suggest playing a high quality track you heard before the quality reduction to see what you think...


    However the EQ should go to 12 with MCU1, if it doesn’t I’d suspect that you don’t have the latest update

    2018.18.2
    Premium Audio on P100D with MCU1
    Inferior sound on all sources (including lossless). And the eq maxes at +- 8db

    I can only think that there were different stacks in the 2018.18.2 release. Some didn’t address the audio issues.

    By the way, just to put some more detail around the sound quality issue. There is noticeably less dynamic range. It is as if the system is taking high res audio files and then compressing them before then extracting them. The sound on my premium audio system is considerably worse than it was on my wife’s standard audio system.

    I think much of the problem may have to do with the sound going to the rear speakers. If I send all the sound to the rears, it is incredibly tinny and faint. It as if there are two Apple Watch speakers mounted in the back...

    If you want to blow speakers and amps, keep adjusting that EQ up. Remember, you can adjust EQ down to accomplish the same effect. I'm generally -3db midrange and +3db base/treble instead of +6db bass/treble. I guess I haven't noticed that they cut me back from ±12db to ±8db because I never make adjustments that large.
