My Ph2 172 has what I assume is a 4 x 22w head unit and six speakers. I know that the 182 has a 4 x 40w head unit, but my 172s set-up seems identical to my mums Dynamiques set up (which I know is the 4 x 22w). Its also got the optional 6-CD stacker.
Im not keen to lose the "standard" look of the head unit, but I do get a fair bit of distortion, even at low volumes, when I have the bass up.
Would changing the speakers improve matters, or is it the fault of the head unit itself?
Finally, my other halfs Authentique has a crappy 4 x 15w tape player. The original spec was for 4 speakers, which I assume would be the front door ones and the dash ones. Its a used car, so I dont know the history - but there are definitely some rear speakers there, although you cant "fade" the stereo to the back to make them work. Is this normal, or does she have some extra speakers I can make work?
