Default Hands free sound like crap... HELP?

I have the Kenwood DDX419 in my 08' STI. Love it till I have to make a call... When using the hands free bluetooth everyone says I sound like i am in a barrel and they hear a bad echo. Any ideas of what I can do to fix this? I tried turning the vol down on my phone but still does it. Any feedback would be great! Thanks guys!

Where is the mic placed? Could it be picking up sound waves from road or wind noise? Is it tucked away in a corner/enclosed space (under the cluster Hood) or in an open area (I.e. rear view mirror)?

Keep in mind my vehicle is an 07. But i have mine just to the right of the clock pod almost to the edge of the dash, the only complaints people speak of is when i am cruising at a decent clip and my windows are down (45mph +).. Might want to give that a shot, as maybe being on the headliner it is picking up sound from the windshield?

Yeah. Having it moved down might help. I will look into what that would take. Thanks.

Should not take much effort at all.. I know my b/t mic has about 9 ft of cable, so it would just be working the cable down and tucking within the Dash. If it is an Aftermarket Radio, then the Mic, should unplug from the rear of the radio and you can pull it through the opening of where the mic is placed now and then just remount and tuck
