Agreed. My Volt's Bose system is nothing compared to what is in my Cobalt, but it certainly is no slouch (it also has an actual sub, rather than just 6x9s "subs" in the sedan's deck, or the tiny little 5" woofer in the hatch's floor).Mine's no 1000w luxury car stereo with 20 speakers, but the Bose system is pretty good for what it is.
The problem is present with engine running or not, AM FM memory stick all the same. No CD slot in this system. I have been in the car with the shop foreman when he put the thing through a variety of settings and told me with a straight face that he thought it sounds great.I'll definitely be interested to hear how that turns out. That's not normal at all. My Bose system in my Cruze sounds good too for this class of car. It doesn't have thundering bass by any means, but it does have good clarity and sound. It definitely does not have an echo or 'reverb' sound to it at all in mine. Is this all audio sources that you're getting this same type of sound? Or is it only some sources? If it's through your cell phone, your phone could possibly have some sound effects or DSP turned on. Just an idea. When you say Tech's say it sounds great, I'm wondering if they're listening to it on a difference source than you usually do.
Very true, the best system available in a car should be able to satisfy all preferences to an extent, mine satisfies and is defended by only the vendor.Everyone is different in their preferences and hearing. All comes down to how/what one hears may not be the same as anyone else does...I know how I like my music to sound and to my parents and kids it is too loud and too heavy.:lala: :banghead::yahoo::rock:
Bose has always had some of the better customer service in the industry.I would stay in contact with Bose. Like I said they have a rep to uphold. Maybe they can push gm or the dealer to do something. I received a Bose Bluetooth speaker free through my job and it came not working. Contacted Bose and they shipped me a new one no questions asked. The new one worked perfectly.
