6 speaker stereo sound

You know for a base unit here in the US, the standard stereo has a decent sound for this level of vehicle without any upgrade option. I have the stereo set to I think its "performance" and tweeked the mid and trebel up a little and I think it sounds pretty good with most music. I also have a 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport and the C-HR stereo beats it all around. Anyone have any thoughts on stereo sound for the C-HR?

I set mine to "performance" also and its not too bad for a OEM unit. I would like to upgrade to something that offers built-in GPS when available.

    Under the standard screen, there is a "Sound" button on the screen by the "Scan and Station List" Buttons. Hit that, then there is a EQ option at the bottom left the screen with options for Natural, Performance and I think another. I set it on "Performance" and then I turned off the ASL option which I think is Auto sound leveling. I plused one or two for Trebel and Mids and left Bass at middle setting. The Performance setting makes a huge differance. Also I think under the general settings screen for the car, Make sure to set for the C-HR. I think they have some other vehicle options which alter the sound in the vehicle. I think you can choose the IM or C-HR and maybe two other vehicles for configuring for the vehicle.

EQ can be selected by touching the
“Sound” icon.
There are three stored equalizer curves
that you can easily recall at any time.
Here is a list of the equalizer curves:
POWERFUL is a curve in which lowand
high-pitched sounds are boosted.
NATURAL is a curve in which lowand
high-pitched sounds are slightly
boosted.
VOCAL is a curve in which the
midrange, which is the human vocal
range, is boosted.
To change settings, press “EQ

Yeah using the word "Performance" & CHR in the same sentence just doesn't jive.

I plan on redoing the entire stereo in hers once we get it. Don’t know if I’ll be keeping the stock head unit or not. Depends on what else it controls in the car. I wound up using a line out convertor in my Camry.

The overall sound system in C-HR is pretty good, however, I'm considering installing a subwoofer in the trunk. Do you guys have any suggestions?
