The sound system in my EX-L earns about a 4 on a 1 to 10 scale. I like the controls, features, integration, AUX port (in back), etc., but the sound quality is substandard for a $30K+ vehicle. The dashtop tweeters sound like mush, and the stock speakers sound nice and "bassy" when you're sitting in the showroom, but when you start driving they sound weak. Add to that the fact that above certain volumes the radio starts to cut off the bass response.Deano said:There seems to be a lot of bad reviews for the sound system. Is it really that bad or is it being compared to after market SUPER SYSTEMS? Is there a difference between the LX and Ex in quality of sound?
I have to agree there, at least from my experience with the EX-L w RES & NAV.ironcheffx said:All iterations of the factory sound system, including the touring, are well below a five on a scale of one to ten. This, along with pervasive road noise, is the Ody's glaring weak spots.
