JBL sound system in 2017 Camy Sx

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Just got a new 2017 Camy SX (has the 10 speaker JBL system) and very happy with it except the sound quality doesn't quite suit my taste, I fine the mid drivers facing the front windshield rather harsh and tinny. Anyone else find this or just me? I am an ex sound engineer and love JBL pro gear so was quite surprised. Low end is quite acceptable. Any thoughts on something to switch out the four mid drivers with and if so would you get the dealer to or elsewhere? I'm in Victoria.

 

Cheers!

The dealer probably won't even consider touching it(nor would I let them). Your best bet would be a car audio specialist in your area.

Thanks, good advice. I've started to get used to them and also I suspect the speakers have "run in" somewhat and are sounding better.

I'm not too familiar with this setup, what is the front speaker arrangement? I own a Lexus IS with the 14 speaker Mark Levinson system. Great system however I did find the top end a little harsh on 70%+ volume so I corrected it by tuning the EQ. You could possibly do the same if you have EQ adjustment

Will def have eq adjustment as my atara s does from 2013 with a standard speaker system.

      Hey peeps,
      currently have a 2006 ys Yaris that is a basic steering wheel installed but is it possible to change the steering wheel with a YRS or a YRX steering wheel? I want to be able to have the functions of being able to control my audio with the steering wheel but unsure if it's possible and what is needed to be done to change it? how to connect the audio wires? I have no idea since I'm just a 21 year old female with no knowledge of cars haha! 
      Any advice would be helpful

      Hey guys
      My front speakers are sounding pretty crap and I want to replace them.  I checked crutchfield and it says the size is 6 1/2", but I read somewhere that the size in the Aussie version of the car is smaller.  I don't really want to have to fit an adapter so I just want to buy the correct size first go.  Thanks!!

      Hi everyone, 
      I am new to the Prado world and struggling using the audio system in the Kakadu 2012
      I can use the touch screen for tuning the radio etc, however the buttons on the Audio system itself do not do anything.  Such as the Power on button, volume, tuning etc. I have been reading the manual and cant find anything that says these wont work.  is there a setting somewhere, or do I just have a malfunctioning system?  Any help would be much appreciated!  
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I'm in the process of purchasing a 2014 Aurion ZR6 and I understand that they have a 10 speaker JBL sound system. I was wondering if anyone knows the specs? Sub size and wattage etc?
      Apologies if this has already been asked, I couldn't find the answer I was looking for.
      Cheers
