    Hi guys,

    As you're no doubt aware, the older generations of the Symphony headunit were able to access a hidden equalizer menu by holding a series of buttons etc, but this isn't possible with the newer model from what I understand.

    I do recall however reading somewhere (almost positive it was these forums) that it was possible to change the equalizer settings for the Symphony Gen II+ to get a bit more bass etc via VCDS?

    It wasn't so much an 'equalizer' as such, but a setting that defined whether the car was petrol/diesel and the interior leather/cloth (to do with sound absorption and the louder diesel engines etc).

    My car will be hooked up to VCDS next weekend and whilst it is I wouldn't mind playing with these settings (change from leather to cloth for hopefully a little more power). The subwoofer, even with Bose, is pathetic...

    I wish I could afford the AndyMac Stealth Sub upgrade :( this will have to be the poor man's alternative (for now!).

    I've tried searching the forums for this old thread but am having no luck - does anyone remember it? Can anyone find it??

    Cheers :)

    FYI - This might have been what I read, can't quite remember! I'm not sure if it's a TT exclusive thing though... or if something similar exists on the A3... not too savvy on all this VAGCOM malarkey :think:

    I'll see if it's possible next weekend when it's plugged in. I'm bored of the BOSE setup; I've heard more bass come out of my Great-Grandmother's gramophone!
