Arrived At Last!

Recommended Posts

took delivery this morning of IS250 SE MM w/ parking sensors

two questions:

when i put the ML system above a certain level (i.e. put it loud)...the rear view mirror thumps a lot with bass tracks...anyone else have this?

lexus installed the LPA 400 parking sensors...and although the work and beep as they should...the screen doesn't recognise them so i can't adjust the volume of the beeps etc.

otherwise love the car!

cheers

Welcome mate - enjoy - the mirror bouncing at high volume is a cool feature of the car...makes you realise how powerful the base subwoofer is...

I ran an errand today and left it on 45...the kids were in the car...they loved it - :duh:

Bass makes things vibrate - enjoy the fact tht the car shakes without rattling - quality!!

Enjoy the car :)

Actually, the car does rattle, you just can't hear them :D

In my experience it is not the mirror that vibrates, rather the rear window as the sub is mounted in the rear parcel shelf. If the bass is that loud you have to ask yourself are you listening to the music or working on the assumption that everything sounds best with the maximum bass. Much like the chavs in their Corsas with sub boxes.

Its all to do with sound pressure level. Big speakers (Bass) move a lot of air when the cone moves, modern cars have quite soft seals around the windows to aid in the reduction of noise (some manufacturers name it as a feature) Sound Deadening Glass. The pressure increases in the car as the cone moves forward and the air has to go somewhere so it pushes on the easiest thing to move, streching the seals, moving the glass the mirror is mounted too. High volume external noise will also vibrate the mirror.

Turn the radio down.
