  12. What settings do you have on the stereo?

    Alfa Stelvio
    I've got a Milano with the std audio, which I believe (according to the brochure/manual) is slightly more speakers and an improved amp, but not the HK full upgrade, which has even more speakers and a more powerful amp. I find the audio is very "muddy" and "woolly", overpowered by mid-range IMO...
