    Hi all,

    New guy here! Has anyone else noticed that the sound / volume when playing music through BT or AUX is pretty miserable when compared to the radio or XM?

    Anybody know how to fix this?

    Haven' really noticed a difference.

    The sound settings are different for each input. So if you set the FM levels you have to set the BT as well.

    Welcome to the forums from Oregon. Look at the BT phone or AUX item and make sure the volume on that device is maxed out.

    Well hate to break it to you but the JBL systems in our trucks just flat out suck. I had a 2014 4Runner with the same JBL and it was twice as powerful as the one in my current truck. I will be taking it in to the dealership and having them make double sure nothing is going wrong since I filed a complaint with Toyota Corp about the JBL system being so weak and that's the first step you have to take.

    More of us need to bring this to Toyota's attention so something, if anything, can be done.

    What I mean is, when I have the volume level at 30 on radio or XM, in order to get the same volume level on BT, it has to be at like 45, and the sound is nowhere near as good of quality as on radio. Just didn't know if I was missing something...

    Did you set up the sound for the BT?

    It's not the same as the radio.

    Yeah you need to turn up the volume and chang some settings on whatever device your running BT or AUX from.
    Most actually say the exact opposite of what your saying.

    Which apps are you using for audio? Often, there is an option for "High Quality" audio in apps like Spotify. Usually the apps have a setting where they don't use high quality when not on Wifi to save on cellular data.
