Question MY12 SLK Harman Kardon Premium Sound System

Is it just me or is the Harman Kardon Premium Sound System in the MY12 SLK's just 'ok'? There's just not enough bass. I previously owned a 2009 BMW135i Convertible with the Premium Sound System which was only 300W, compared to the SLK's 500W, yet the 135i bass has more "thump" compared to the SLK's. Is it the quality of sub-woofers in the SLK?

My 2012 SLK is equipped with the following: Arctic White/Sahara Beige Leather, Premium Pkg, Sport Pkg, COMAND Launch Pkg, 7-Speed A/T & Cilajet Exterior Sealant.

Is there a sub in the r172? There were only mid-basses in the door pods on the R171.

I believe the side doors each have a "200mm double-voice coil" sub-woofer

On my hk there are 3 sound settings that can be accessed through the command system. Speech, Normal and the other is Pro Logic I believe which sound the best. Have you checked this setting?
