Our long-term 2015 Dodge Viper has the top-of-the-line Harman Kardon stereo, but there are still some issues with sound quality and volume.

    Too much Bass? No understand-o. That being said, if turning the Bass all the way doesn't eliminate it completely then there is something wrong. Could it be the source bumping up the bass? Otherwise, I'd take it in to your nearest SRT dealer, LOL.

    18 speakers in a small, two-seat cabin with a big engine up front. So first, I wonder if it could be some of the speakers are canceling each other out. Intersecting wave-forms causing an accidental noise-cancellation issue. I still can't believe it's got 18 speakers. Anyone else remember when 4 speakers was the luxury sound package in a four door sedan? Second, you don't buy a Viper for the sound system. I'm surprised that sound system was even an option. Third, have you tried adding some Dynamat?

    I approve of this suggestion.

    How could anyone fit 18 of anything in that small of a cabin? Maybe not the best sounding - but surely an engineering feat haha.

    I was going to say....18 speakers in that cabin? A bunch of those are probably utter crap. That's just dumb. And I'm all about quality Oem stereos.

    A. Isn't this car still under warranty? Or, is this something that can't really be called a defect or "problem" from a warranty perspective?
    B. A new album?

    If the poster isn't deaf already, I suspect he is on the way to making himself that way. It baffles me how so many people believe that the fix for a noisy car is to turn UP the volume. The aural assault in their cars is unbearable but they just don't get it. When asked why I want to drive my own car to an event, an ironic "My ears don't like you driving" causes utter bafflement to most of these folks.
