    Revel Ultima disappointment

    JimF, unfortunately I have not found a resolution. I have just come to accept the inferior sound system. If I hadn't had the Sony THX-II in my last vehicle, maybe I woukdn't be so critical. I just expect more out of a $64,000 vehicle.
  2. Rafael- Have you had any luck getting your sound problem fixed? We recently purchased a 2017 Black Label MKX and are having similar issues with the clarity/tone of the Revel Ultima sound system....its sounds kind of tinny and is lacking bass. Thanks, Kim

    Sorry, I should have clarified; my MKS had the THX-II with 5.1 surround sound. Even the 2017 Cadillac we test drove was lacking in comparison.

    Those are both good suggestions. We actually have to take it back to the dealership for another issue, so we can listen to another Revel Ultima for comparison at that time. I like the idea of upgrading the sub woofer....any recommendations on how to go about that? We would want to make sure it was done right...

    Revel Ultima disappointment

    We just purchased a 2017 Black Label MKX with the Revel Ultima sound system. Overall, we are very pleased with the vehicle. However, despite having made NUMEROUS adjustments to the sound system, it is not remotely close to the quality of the Sony THX system that was in my 2010 MKS. The Revel Ultima system sounds almost tinny and does not have the deep, rich bass undertones that my THX system had. Has anyone else had a similar issue and found a solution? We are looking for advice on how to fix the problem because the vehicle has a lot of other features that we really like. (I noticed an older, somewhat similar post but it didn't really offer a solution and it kind of went off topic...) Thank you in advance for your replies.
