Thank you for ALL the replies. So, Mocha, are you saying that the speaker will produce output only when necessary because the technology is smart enough to know when the extra boost is needed? Not sure what ANC is so I will look that up.MOCHANOX said:Well from an Audio perspective...
Subwoofers (which that speaker is) enhance bass...as a result their volume output is often misunderstood. The normal Hz range for a "sub" is somewhere generally speaking from 50 to 80 which is very low.
I would suggest you try adjusting your fade to -8
and increase the Bass adjustment to maximum
Then turn the volume up to 12
At this setting almost any music (whatever genres you prefer) should provide sound output to the subwoofer which you would clearly be able to make out.
There is a LOT of music genres that do NOT use a lot of Bass...and as a result...the subwoofer would be close to inactive...giving the impression it is not working
FWIW...if after using the "test" method above you discover your sub indeed does work...you should readjust your output levels to a more neutral sound curve which is pleasant to your ears for whatever type of music you tend to listen to.

Thank you. I realize what the capabilities are now of my base stereo system and the ANC feature.sunnyday said:Only if you have upgraded sound-system. No matter what you do, if you don't have upgraded sound-system, it will not work as you expect.

RNOX said:The 2010 brochure for the base audio system says it is a 6 speaker system. So if I count right : 2 dash level - 2 on front doors 0 2 on each rear door.
Plus 2,NoobNox said:Only if you upgrade to the optional Pioneer system..
Of course we all have different opinions and hear things differently, but in comparison to the sound system in my '05 Relay I find this base stereo system really good.sunnyday said:Well just put it this way, you're lucky since the upgraded system which I have in I4 is not that good. What I did is I bought an alpine 117 and it's way better that the premium sound of this system. So disappointed.
Of course SM64, your right... where was I at?SuperMat64 said:No their is not 2 subs, here is all the info you may want to have about the Pioneer Premium Sound System.
