Hi all, have just had a dash cam fitted and don't know if it's related but my speakers sound distorted when the volume is increased.
Normally have the volume lowish and I accidentally knocked the volume up to about half way and the speakers sounded distorted the radio hasn't got static or crackling and when fitted to the fuse box they said they used the cigarette fuse, might have been like it before I don't know but just wondered if anyone has any thoughts, phoning dealer tomorrow as it's only two months old, coincidence or not don't know.

Depends on what sound system you have optioned mate, the standard system isn't the best, there is some distortion at the higher volumes. I've got a 21 AMG 45S with the Burmester system and from new there was some distortion and vibration at higher volume settings. I fixed it to a certain extent by adding soundproofing to the doors which had the added benefit of providing more surrounding packing to the door speakers which has helped with the sound distortion somewhat.
It's a standard stereo, 100w I think at about half it sounds like my speakers are shot

Well it's booked into garage, bit frustrated that the earliest it can go in is November 17, as its just two months old i thought it might have been in a bit quicker but it is what it is I suppose, the care seems to go out of the window once you bought it.

Update, been into the dealer and they had it for two days as they found one speaker totally shot, replaced under warranty, now sounds a lot better agree with the generic volume slider idea, have compared with a friend's c class and we both thought they sounded the same, as for dash cam no problem with that. Think some of it was me plus a duff speaker.
