    I have the UHFS and I noticed that I was having to turn the volume up to 6 or 7 to hear the music over the tire noise. Normally I would keep it at a 4 or 5. I went to the EQ settings and now it maxes out at 8.0 am I remembering that it used to be a 10.0 at max on the Eq? just curious if I am the only one I need service or not?

    So I have confirmed that the sliders went to 12 before this update. I am on 2018.10.4.

    One answer I've heard is that because the max range is now 8 dB plus/minus, you can use the max if you need to, and then you can push your volume up a bit to compensate (raise your baseline). I've not seen anybody say why the the change from 12 to 8.

    Well I for one hate it. It took all of the oomph from my sound and flattened the curve.

    Yeah, not surprised. Love to know the rationale behind the change myself!

    Instead of fiddling around with this they should, after 6(!) years finally offer us a loudness option furthermore based on the speed. Every 15k car offers this standard.
    The old, 7.1 fader worked in realtime so You heard what You set. Now since 8 you have to lift Your finger.
    What dumb***f**s work at the software and U.I. department?
    What a letdown.

    Please, everyone, report this as an issue. Maybe they'll bring the older equalizer back if enough owners make a stink. Our UHFS sounds awful now.

    Yes. Definitely.

    My volume is 10-15% lower.
    What used to be 7 is now 9.
    Plus the upgrade degraded my rear cam resolution ;((

    I don’t have UHFS but on stock stereo volume also is lower and overall sound is less dynamic, what’s the best way to give this feedback to Tesla?
