Default New 2014 Accord EX-L/New Member

Hey! I'm new here. I was looking for a good blend between gas mileage and luxury and the new Accord EX-L seemed to be the best balance for me. Acuras all take premium and most are 6 cylinder so that was out of the question. I decided to go with Honda because I previously owned a 2007 Civic LX which I never had a problem with.

I noticed the sound system is 360 watts but it definitely doesnt sound that way. Is there some tuning that I am missing to get the most out of it?

I'm loving the vehicle other than the seemingly underpowered sound system, which isn't the biggest deal. I read elsewhere that gurus on these forums were able to solve someone else's problem with the system so I wanted to ask around.

Welcome to HAF and thanks for joining.

You want "guns" when it come to the audio - post a thread in the audio section and give them all of the details and if there is help/ideas I bet there are a few members in there that will be more than happy to help you out.

This is a sort of welcome & introductions section. Like PM said to Chuck, post your question over in "A/V Electronics" section.

Welcome, the first step is to bypass the internal DSP and see if that makes you happy.

Thanks for the help. Disabling the DSP definitely yielded a big improvement...sound is a bit distorted at highest volume but there I only expect so much from car audio. I think I'll be happy with this.

Thanks again!
