I like music but I’m terrible at tuning.

Can folks share pictures of the sound settings so I can copy off of you?

Here’s what I have it set at right now.

Hahaha. The old deaf guy tune. Up the higher frequencies that we can’t hear well anymore.
Not at all… I’m a music guy and don’t want the bass overpowering the vocals. Plus it sounds distorted at high volume

Note how far back the fade is, and yet the midrange on the dash is still overpowering. This setting works to get some bass out as long as you don't turn it up too loud. If you do crank it, the sound starts to fall apart, and you have to back off on the bass. I miss the sub in my Expedition, but not worth it to me to spend a lot of money to get it back. Sound mode is "Stereo."

Same for the Mach E. It’s insane how the dash speaker overpowers everything. You have to bring the fader all the way back just to make it seem like the music isn’t hitting you directly in the face.

I’m a big fan of the v-shape sound profile.

+4 Bass
-2 Mid
+6 Treble

-2 Rear Biased Fade (to reduce the center speaker)

Turn "Stereo" to Surround and it helps that up front overpowering sound.

As a part time FOH engineer, the midrange is where a lot of the meat/vocals will sit. Tuning your midrange, and then supplementing bass and treble to your taste is where I would start. Treble is obviously all of your higher end sounds like higher pitch vocals, cymbals, and some electric guitar frequencies. Bass is obviously all of your low end with deeper male vocals being at the top end of the bass and toms and kick drum being at the lower end. You want an even fill of everything, and then work to bring it to how you prefer.

For me personally I have some midrange, a little treble and a moderate amount of bass.

Too much bass and lack of treble and you get muddy, too much treble and not enough bass causes a light and tinny sound.

The issue with the center upfront speaker overpowering all others is the biggest issue I have it. I have the fade set way in the back to try and compensate for it.

These look like the exact settings I have. But it still all depends on how much high or low you like to hear or actually can hear since many cannot hear all the different high tones or low tones. :(

Unfortunately for me, I hear all the tones. My wife's high tones, low tones, middle tones. I couldn't tell you what she said, but I definitely hear the tone.
