Any recommendations for a sound system 2022 LX model system is terrible imo
Most factory systems do, unless you move up to the top level trim (and even some of them sound terrible). I'm no expert but I think you're screwed unless you get into some expensive sound processors. Then speakers. And do you have what it takes to install and set it up properly? For me I'd just take it to a reputable car stereo shop and have them do it but you're probably looking at 2-3 grand, maybe more. If you're going to keep the car for 10 years it's worth it. I don't think changing the speakers alone will make that big of difference. The head unit is the deficiency and it's integrated into the car. That's why I say you're screwed. Maybe others will chime in with a more positive outlook. The low buck approach is get a quality bluetooth stereo headset and use your SiriusXM APP or Spotify/Apple etc to stream your music as you drive. Those are $150-200 and they sound great. I have one and wear it driving my pickup which also has a crappy sound system. To some degree is sounds better than the Bose in my Touring because it cancels ALL road noise. It also cancels out sirens and other sounds you hear while driving so you need to stay alert (but don't we do that anyway!!!). Good luck to you.LX model system is terrible imo
I'd love to hear your review of the Si Bose system once you get the car. When I first got my Si I thought the Bose system was simply OK, it didn't impress me that much to be honest, but the little Bose logos looked cool I guess.Subscribing to a higher rez source such as Tidal will improve sound quality with no “surgery”. I only appreciate that level of detail on longer trips though.
For our ‘15 Si we had a head unit, powered subwoofer, replaced mids but kept tweeters, a bunch of sound deadening material in doors. Turned out pretty well for $2500. Way better than the systems we had in the Bentley or the McLarens.
Many people are satisfied just to have some melody in the background to distract from the drudgery of life. Vehicles are built for those people. I will be closely following to see what folks are doing. Trying not to think about how it will still be weeks before out dealership gets their second 2022 Si, ours. And finding out just what we have.
