2009 Subaru Legacy Limited Audio Issues
Our 2009 Legacy 2.5i Limted is having some audio issues.
We've narrowed down the general area to the front passenger side using the balance and fader options on our stereo...
It sounds twangy. When you lower the bass, the issue seems to go away. When you lower the middle, the issue seems to go away slightly more. To be more descriptive, I guess it sounds like the bass isn't coming through as clear? The other issue is that it's intermittent - seems to come and go, sometimes depending on the song. I first thought it could be poor reception - but it's happening for CD's too.
Since the car is new, I anticipate this being covered under warranty, but I'm slightly concerned that they will try to shift the blame onto us for operating at too high a volume, etc. I know for certain that the audio "volume" has not been past 12 or 13, and the Bass, Middle, and Treble are all at 0, 0, and -1 respectively.
I just wanted to poke around on the forums to see if anyone else was having similar issues. Until then, driving with the audio balance to the left!
