'05 SLK 350 Speakers

Is there a button to push for when the top is down to hear the car stereo? The volume is fine for when the top is up, but when the top is down you can barely hear the music. We can carry on a normal conversation in the car with the top down, but we can't hear the radio. we have the Kermon upgrade package. Does anyone have any ideas (center speaker in front not working, you aren't suppose to listen to music with the top down, design flaw, operator error)?

I've never had a problem hearing the stereo with the top down- even at 65 MPH- I would imagine it would be okay at higher speed as well, though I would *never* drive above the speed limit

There is a moment when I start to lower the roof that the stereo cuts out for a half-second. I believe it's the system switching modes- there are different matrix settings for top-down audio vs. top up. If you're not getting sound after putting the top down, sounds like it could be to do with that- but that's just guessing.

Welcome from Valrico, Florida!

usercp, edit your details, location.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘new members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.

if u have comand, the sound should increase/decrease based on ambient sound, ie., louder with top down and then lower as you decelerate at a light.

If you haven’t, please use the 'search this forum' feature for your questions as they have probably been asked before.
In addition, If you haven’t, please post your questions in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response.
