Could speakers be damaged at maximum volume?

    I have a 8-month-old MR M3 and the other night I was reversing and my jacket sleeve caught the volume wheel and cranked the stereo all the way up (much to the delight of my wife and kids!) Since then, the stereo doesn't sound the same. The bass seems a little muffled when it used to sound deep. I don't hear any crackling or popping, just not as much 'performance' as before. Am I imagining this? On a similar note, would the stereo be covered under warranty? Thanks

    Limited new vehicle warranty should cover it. It's suppose to work at those volume levels - otherwise why even offer it?

    If the SC has another car with the same sound system. Couldn't hurt to try. Unless you damaged your ears and perceive the sound as muffled* knock on wood*.

    Doesn’t Sentry mode max out the radio volume if activated? Other forum members mentioned that the electronics/software should prevent a speaker blowout?

    Try a reboot. It did that to me once when I took a song to 11 that was also recorded hot, reboot fixed it.

    Also this happens if it's very cold, not sure what the weather is like we're you are but I do remember last winter having that issue

    Curious - what song did you take to 11? I (accidentally) cranked Bon Jovi. If I blew my speakers because of Bon Jovi I will be quite sad.
