View Full Version : Disappointing stereo - '63 plate R Line Touareg

Hi all,

We've just bought a lovely 1 owner from new '63 plate R Line Touareg. It's fabulous and we love it.

However, one issue I didn't think we'd have coming from a 13 year old A6 is that the stereo is nowhere near as good in the VW. The A6 stereo was a 10 speaker set up with a sub hidden somewhere and it was very good - having said that I think it was just the standard stereo.

The VW hasn't got the Dynaudio upgrade so it's also just the standard stereo.

The radio is OK, but audio from Bluetooth is not as good as the radio. Neither are very loud and the actual quality of the sound is not great.

I've tried fiddling with the treble/bass but it doesn't really help.

I managed to improve the Bluetooth sound a fraction by setting the Apple Music EQ to 'Loudness' in the iPhone settings.

It's quite frustrating.

Is there anything I can do, or any aftermarket upgrades to speakers, etc. that would help?

Thanks in advance!
