    Dear All,
    I have an issue that has continued to puzzle me - when I first got my 08 EX CR-V, I was very disappointed at the sound quality, coming from a 2nd generation CR-V to this third generation one. I realised the subwoofer, which was under the passenger seat, was working but very faint. You had to put your head in the passenger footwell to even hear it.
    Eventually, I installed an aftermarket subwoofer.
    I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue and how they went about resolving it.
    Thanks in advance

    Have you checked the fader and tone settings to see if all is the neutral state.?

    After having a Bose unit in my last car (that blew up) I find the ICE in the CR-V to be very disappointing:Frown:

    I couldn't agree with you more, JayBenny. I put an aftermarket stereo in my last CR-V (2nd Generation) and the sound was amazing! I thought I wouldn't need to do much with the 3rd Generation one as it came with a subwoofer, but have been sorely disappointed. There is next to no bass reproduction, even with the subwoofer turned to the max. Simply ruins the enjoyment of what is quite a brilliant car, to be honest.

    I think you'll find that will all OEM ICE systems. To get a proper decent sound unfortunately you do have to go aftermarket.
