hah, i think there is this "dolby" button thing where it clears the music up but it lowers the sound and gets rid of the shhhh noise. I know my e36 had it but cant remember what my e46 has.

That's weird. Mine is fine, it just seems like the radio isn't putting out all the frequency range that most aftermarket stereos do. It just seems like it is missing something. Oh well, I haven't found a factory stereo system that I liked.

-Really? I like the sound system in the mom's civic its got Pioneer speakers!!! -Although I think all civics came with Pioneer speakers not sure, Rob might be able to clarify that.....

The Alpine 6 CD Shuttle is great*th-up*

Honestly in my opinion the bmw (not hk) systems are not that great compared to other cars. The germans i guess concentrated more on everything else rather than just the radio which is a good thing.;)

they think you should be listening to the music from the engine instead...

I have the HK system in my car and it's fine. Actually better than I expected. I've had other people in the car listen to it and they were impressed as well. Don't know what's up with your car AZN330? Good luck.

im answereing fo my bro(azn330i )
do you have the prob where the rear speakers seems to screw up if you put the volume up?? doesnt seem like it has to be very loud to make it do that.
