the issue is that it doesn't let me enter in the code at all. I was only able to enter the code for the navi. which is a different code.
#113 of 118 Can I delete the 2 XM bands from my choices?

I have an '08 TSX w/Nav and did not purchase XM. Is there a way to delete the 2 XM bands as choices when I move through them by pressing the "Mode" button?
#114 of 118 04 antenna plug

I need to get to the antenna plug, behind the radio so I can plug in a Y cable. Will I be able to do this w/o removing the radio?. If not, how difficult is that removal. I watched someone do it once, when they were repairing my CD changer, but I don't recall what they had to do.
#115 of 118 Audio on 2012 TSX Base
May 28, 2012 (5:50 pm)
Just leased one today. i wanted the tech package badly. But the difference between the two was about $60/month which was high for just audio and navigation (barely use it).
In this thread there are complaints of excessive bass and I think the bass is on heavier side on the 2012 too. However I turn off both the sub woofer and reduce the bass setting into a 'minus' number.
The audio quality is certainly acceptable. I did feel a difference between a song that is on the iPod vs that is on the CD (mp3 format)!
So far I haven't tried any other PMP - like Sony or a USB drive either. I did try connecting my kindle and that didn't work.
Before selecting the Acura TSX, I test drove Lexus which comes with a Pioneer system and the preferred the Acura one.
The equilizer offers only Bass and Treble - my 14 year old Sony car CD player offered mid-range! So far I haven't found any customer equalizer settings - like rock, pop ... etc (which anyways are usually not worth much).
So far I am happy (not ecstatic) about the sound system. It is nowhere close to ELS system in Tech package but is certainly a big upgrade overy my other car Toyota Camry audio system.

#117 of 118 Creating Playlists for Flash Drive Audio
Jun 30, 2012 (3:22 pm)
After playing around with the bass, subwoofer and treble settings - finally down to where I have started to like the Acura TSX (non-tech package) system.
I have tried iPod (which I hate) and my Sony X-Series walkman. Whereas attaching the iPod to the USB gives lot of control through the car buttons, I don't like the audio. The Sony when connected is recognized as a flash drive. So instead of buying a new iPod for the car itself, I am thinking of getting 16gb - couple of them. The problem is that all the folders are shown at the lowest level - so for e.g if I have parent folders for Pop, Rock, New Age, Classic ... so on and have sub-folders within those, then display just shows them in some order and not in categories.
So the question is how do I categorize via playlists or folders? One very crude option would be to create folders like Pop (A-M), Pop (N-Z) and then drop the respective audio files in each of those folders. Any other alternatives?

does the Ipod interface come up on a large screen? Last time i went to look at one (2011), it only comes up on that small narrow screen unless you get the tech package and that small screen is useless
