There are two different versions of RCD300,1K0035186L (early) and 1K0035186P (later) might have somthing to do with it.

As has been said elsewhere, and in my experience, the RCD300 sound does benefit from experimenting with all aspects of the setup.

I have an 06 model rcd 300, and although the radio sounds weedy , the CD play back is acceptable ( not brilliant) but acceptable, but i find that you do have to constantly adjust the settings for bass/treble to get something that sounds right depending on the type of music u play.  Sometimes voices can be too harsh or sounds muddy, but adjusting the bass/treble controls, generally gives u something that is ok.

Hello, I have RCD500 and I can access am advanced equalization menu pressing MENU button for 10 seconds. Here you can set some filters so that sound won't be so unbalanced. The PROBLEM: I don't know how to save these settings to keep configuration after turning off... If anyone guess, please let me know...

Thanks

PNS: No, this is not the standart Bass/Middle/Treble Menu. It's a menu where you can configure 3 filters for front speakers and 3 for back speaker. For every filter you can set central frequency, Gain and even Quality factor. Also you can configure the central frequency over which BMT controls act, and gain range for BMT (BMT=BassMiddleTreble).

If you guess how to save this config, please let me know, [email protected]

Regards,

Gustavo
