Friends, I just bought a 2017 Focus hatchback Titanium with the Sony 10-speaker system. I took it to a trusted car stereo place and they are stunned by how little effect changing the eq settings seems to have. Turning the treble or bass way up hardly changes the sound at all. Is this “normal” for this unit or might mine be defective? It seems like an odd defect. Thoughts? I didn’t find any previous thread with this question.

Thanks!

My guess without hearing it is that it's working as intended. The factory Sony amplifier has a compression/limiter built in to prevent overdriving the speakers. This keeps them from blowing and having replacements under warranty.

If you're looking to upgrade, probably going to require the Maestro AR or Metra AX-DSP.
