I have the F45 coded in and made a big improvement -- has anyone running this EQ profile also disconnected the center? Still worthwhile?

I have left it in but I worked around Jet Engines for 27 years so it sounds fine to me.

Can I code in the F45 equalizer if I had a hifi amp originally and am now running a Bimmertech amp?
Would love on the fly control of more than bass treble and mid

Nah. Its just that the stock radio in the M240 is about the worst I've heard. I'm hoping to find a decent local shop to give me a hand.

I've resorted to driving with my iPhone headphones. I have to drive my F150 from time to time to hear some good audio (its actually very good).

Ok, rant over. So seriously, is there is an easy fix to this nightmare?

Just ignore anyone in the F22/87 section that shits on the HK audio system; I can concur that it sounds absolutely fine and most of the geniuses that complain about it are just using a poor fidelity input source or interfered with the ASD, center-channel speaker, or amp, forcing the system into a fail-safe mode, hence the reason they assume it's a supposedly a crappy sounding system.

It's a prefect audio setup for a vehicle in this price range, so no complaints here, even when I actively go looking for them so I can jump on this trashing bandwagon 🤷🏻
