I created a new thread (without the poll) to encourage all of us to enter and share your audio and equalizer settings for your new SPA vehicle.

Just click on the Data Entry Form, enter your user name (and Car Model and version, all optional), then enter the prompted data. The objective is to have a centralized location where this data can be stored and retrieved. After entering your data, you should be able to see an updated graph.

Note: If this works, thanks goes to PhillipU for his technical prowess. If it doesn't work, blame me as I am a novice at this. Once I figure this out, I will replace the links with an interactive image that should update after users have entered and saved their data. If you were one of the original participants, I can delete your original data in case you which to enter and maintain your own data.

Exactly what I had in mind! :thumbup:

It would be interesting to also have some comments from each user, like what type of music they usually hear.

If you click on the data summary (second from top) link, you can scroll or drag from right to left to see music tastes, et al. Let us know if it does not work.

I went yesterday and did some measurements on my car. My settings turns out completely different to anyone else's. How are calibrating your systems? By the way, the hole on the midrange frequencies is now gone.

Dear All,
I'm new to this forum (or forums at all). After 8 months of owning/using a 2020 early XC60 I still feel betrayed. One of the reasons is the B&W system. The hardware is capable, it's obvious from the first moments. The default settings and onboard correction options are rubbish, though. I do have the fortune to listen to pro audio gear all day and I am used to balanced tone. B&W system in XC60 is not a well balanced system, which is a shame at this price point by itself. On top of that I would not call the onboard EQ as an "EQ", because it can do as much as +/-3dB of maximum control, which makes it impotent/pointless to correct the +10dB peak at 500Hz I measured, for example. This is poor software design. I am not sure if this problem affects only me or is general.
Collected EQ settings do not seem to have a correlation, which makes me suspicious as well...
I reported the problem to Volvo customer care months ago, but I do not really expect any relevant answer, actually. A simple sw update could solve the problem, but Volvo seems to be too arrogant to respond to real user problems.
Due to this problem it is a pain for me to listen to radio and I am forced to use the also idiocratic Android Auto, because at least some of the players have decent EQ capabilities.
I am so frustrated that I plan to publish a paper on this topic (I do acoustic research and design by profession).

Cheers - Andor
