The overall mids to highs of the system is very good, the bottom end is lacking, certain songs sound great even bottom end is adequate, while others sound mediocre.

You sort of live with the system, it is definitely the best sound system in a supercar.

It really has to do with the source material. Garbage in, garbage out. XM Radio sounds surprisingly good. FM radio not so great. If I have highly compressed .mp3 on my USB drive, it sounds terrible.
Leave all the settings flat for bass, mid and treble. And don’t use “driver focus.” If you crank up the bass, the woofers will just clip. Physics is physics, you can’t expect too much from small bass drivers in a cabin with such a tiny volume.
