Hi guys,

It appears I have a strange problem with my stock Swift Stereo.
Seems the drivers side speakers are quite a bit softer than the left and little tinny sounding.

Anyone experienced any similar problems?

The balance setting is 0, so it appears to be a electrical or wiring problem.

My swift is the first 2006 model.

I have this problem too, just the tweeter though. Mine's a 2005 Sept. I had my friend to listen to them from a different position and he said the same. I think I might have blown the tweeter because sometimes I turn it up quite loud and treble at +6. Now I leave the balance setting at +2.

Do you tend to turn it up a lot? Get someone to sit on the passenger side and see if they feel the same, because it may be due to the tweeter is not facing your ear directly makes you feel that.

Does the stereo have a setting for occupant position(s)? Some systems these days have a setting that automatically adjusts the fade/balance to match where the occupants are seated, so the volume is even from that point.

eg: If you have it set to "driver" it adjusts the balance/fade to be weaker in the driver's side front speaker, and stronger to the rear passenger side.

There isn't an occupant position setting that I can find.

But it seems to be a bigger issue than that though, in my case it appears most of the lack of "substance" in the right speakers is from the woofer rather than the tweeter.

Sitting in the passenger seat sound a whole lot different to sitting in the drivers seat, so something strange is up.
