Default Bowers and Wilkins Sound Setting Help

Hi All,

I have recently purchased a Volvo XC60 that has the Bowers & Wilkins premium sound. I am very impressed by the system but it is currently on Individual Stage with Treble/Bass/SubWoofer and EQ settings all on default at the moment.

I know there will be a variation based on type of music people listen to but anyone have any settings (including EQ if not one of the presets) I can use as a starting point - I mainly listen to HipHop/Rap/R&B on a high volume

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi, it depends on your source material more than anything if you are wandering away from the defaults. I used to get so frustrated with trying to find a one settings for all solution, well you can’t. The B&W will pick and amplify poor quality Lowfi recordings and poorly engineered material, best advice would be to put on your fave track and balance it to your ear, then leave it and enjoy your Volvo.
