I love to listen to my audio at max volume with the bass cranked up. Am I at risk of blowing my speakers?
In my experienced in other cars there should be no problem because there is a software limitation to avoid that from happening but if it happens it should be covered under the bumper to bumper warranty.
I would be worried about blowing your hearing.
Damn. That's loud. Usually at 50%, I'm thinking its loud enough and I don't even have the sub & amp.
50% is very audible from outside the car with doors closed and windows up. 100%? Whoa.
My kids get upset with me when I pull into the garage - “Dad, we can hear that in here!”
I’ve found that the sound system really takes a step up in quality on the last couple ticks - the bass comes up, and the overall balance is very nice to my ears. Note that I leave the eq flat
I had Perry Mason by Ozzy at 10 today. I didn't go to 11
Damn that bass just crushes your chest!
Thanks Bang & Olufsen!
yes 50% . you can blow up but its audible outside.
@jjgunn. Where do you see the volume set to a number? It's just a slider for me with not even a percentage. 50% and 100% is just a rough estimate of the bar. Am I missing something?
I thought I quit turning the stereo up to 11 because I was old. I now realize that I quit because my sound systems were garbage. I'm back to cranking it up until my neighbor's car alarm goes off. Thanks Tesla!
Yes. Just play Nickleback at any volume.
I hope you aren't in Florida or it will cost you:

@jjgunn. Am I missing something?
Yes, watch "This is Spinal Tap"
"I CAN'T HEAR YOU"
@volleyball - The volume level of 11 they are referring to is for the S or X (I know the is a 3 forum). There are no numerical values on the volume slider for the 3.
Does it sound distorted? Then maybe. If not, no.
@volleyball - He's making a Spinal Tap reference. These go to 11!!
@rmg007. Good, I'm not missing anything. I wonder why they decided not to numerically label the volume control.
We are all going to go deaf and not know it since we will just push the slider a little higher...
Here's some reference decibel level to go by. Running max volume in the M3 is probably above 109 db.
Noise Source Decibel Level (dB) How long can you listen without protection?
Jet take off 130 0 minutes
Ambulance siren 109 Less than 2 minutes
Personal music player at maximum volume 106 3.75 minutes
Pop/Rock concert 103 7.5 minutes
Riding a motorcycle 97 30 minutes
Using an electric drill 94 1 hour
@VolleyballNE1 maybe they decided that a simpler UI was more important than an amusing cultural reference. You will find numbers on the EQ settings. But alas, mine only go up to 8.
Volume is relative to recording levels and source levels. Volume numbers are pretty much irrelevant.
I notice certain songs kind of required you to turn the volume way up.
Unfortunately there are many more that required you to turn the volume way down.
@Frank99: "My kids get upset with me when I pull into the garage - “Dad, we can hear that in here!”"
Young folks today just do not appreciate the finer points of rock n roll. When I was a kid...
Magic, I got suspended from Twitter perhaps permanently. I feel your pain brother.
@hcdavis I started on twitter during my “vacation” and am surprised to find the four letter words used there by people at Tesla banning use of such here. On the model airplane forum the running joke is that if you don’t get suspended at least once a year you are not worthy : )
I simply cannot get suspended from Twitter..... but with regards to volume, I got hearing aids two weeks before I got my Model 3. The reason I got them was that I would have to change insurance in less than a year, and the insurance I had at the time allowed me to get great hearing aids without spending much of my own money. I did not think I really needed them. Of course my wife believed I did. The music sounds better with them, and you can set a profile for music on them.
If you find yourself turning the music up to 11, or if you are a musician past 55 or so, you might want to check into some....
I'm sure my girlfriend in college could...she would blow anything
gballant4570, too bad your wife doesn't realize that the hearing aids aren't going to help you "hear" her any better...she'll probably complain that the hearing aids aren't working and you should get better ones, haha.
I think the're too big to get your mouth around.
