Hello everyone, i recently got my C3(2021 model i think) and i have been noticing this issue when playing music either straight from my phone with bluetooth or when playing with Android Auto and Carplay. The audio is working fine until there is a sudden change in volume in the song that im listening to and the sound system tries to overcorrect it by lowering the volume until the loud sound is gone. This issue is not very noticable in calm songs with a lot of lyrics but it starts to get really annoying when listening to song with alot of bass or songs that have drops. I have checked my settings on all the phones i have tried playing music with but nothing seems to work. Does anyone know if and how i can resolve this issue?

Thanks.

Hi

It only a guess, but can you turn down the phone volume to say between 50&% and 75% on the volume for bluetooth (or which ever output you are using) and compensate for the lower volume by raising the volume on the C3 stereo.

See if this has any affect on the bassy songs.
