Subwoofer fix

My dealer just modified the subwoofer in my S Q4 and the sound improved appreciably. They said it took longer than expected as they had to remove and install installation. This was there first as apparently Maserati has not released a bulletin with a factory fix or authorization.

Anyway, I can now play the bass as high as I like it with not distortion or rumble.

Just left my dealer. While I was there the service manager emailed his guy at Maserati about sub and satelite. Official permanent fix for sat issue coming for all cars end of march. Still working on a official fix for sub. Tech told me original idea for sub was for the whole trunk to be its enclosure. This assumes it is air tight and nothing is in it, of course it isn't! European logic. It will be interesting to see if they can solve this problem.

That sounds like dealership bullsh*t. No way the engineers would be that ignorant, Italian or otherwise. As shortsighted as it is this smells more like another of many cut corners on Maserati's part to lower the base cost of the Ghibli. And I'm pretty sure Maserati engineering and assembly is now heavily influenced and in many ways run by... Germans.

The trunk wasn't Maser it was the tech who does high end sound upgrades on the dealers Ferraris. Believe it or not some high end cars with power trunks work with this. Obviously not from Maser. They will eventually have to change this, just hope there is some upgrade for us.

Please let me know how they respond. Manhattan Maserati is part of the same auto group as Fort Lauderdale Maserati - where I purchased my car. I can't stand that bass rumble...

Yes. It is premium sound. Since the fix, much, much better, actually good and at least on par with my previous A7.
