I've read a few of the threads on here about the stereo and after living with it for the last 3weeks I think the sound is worse than whative read here. The sound stage is way too far forward even when sound is set to the middle. Even when I set it further rear it still sounds like its mostly coming from the bottom of the windshield. There's also barely any mid bass no matter how much I mess with the mid and bass settings. What I've deduced is that the speakers in the front doors aren't "pulling they're weight." you'd think that since they're so close to you you'd get a good range of sound from them but when I open the door with the stereo on and put my ear near them the volume coming from those speakers seems low. I've even tried different sound settings. What's most frustrating is my wife's Prius v 3 stereo sounds 10 times better. One of the reasons I went with the package 5 was because I thought the stereo was going to be better. Is there something I'm not doing? Thanks in advance for any replies.
