2013 WRX Hatch

Default Stock Head Unit Sound Settings

Hey everyone,

Just curious for anyone that still has their factory head unit but what are your settings so far?

I have a 2013 Hatch with the Non-Nav head unit.

I use my iPhone over Bluetooth.
My current settings are:

Bass - +3
Mids - +5
Highs - +7
Balance - 0
Fade - -2 (rear bias)

I found that with this setup, I get decent bass and clear highs and mids (I go up to 20 volume)

I listen mainly to Hip-Hop and RnB. I also prefer all my music to "sound the way it should" which (to me) means FLAT.

I used Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones as my standard to try and get clear and flat sound.

What is everyone else's settings?

I too am a Sennheiser fan and love flat sound!
I personally fade all the way to the front. Sounds less boomy and has better imaging to me as well. The rear speakers lack bass almost completely. Check out this thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...2232785&page=4

Bass +1
Mid -1
Treb +2
