my 2017 xse JBL sucks compare to my 2007 XLE JBL. The problem was its amplifier was to small and cheap speaker

Harman Chawla says:

steaming via bluetooth a2dp killed the quality of audio. Pro sound recorder won’t help with that 🙁

Zavier The Great says:

2017 to 2018 big improvement I wish my mom got this one

Hi Mike,
I have a Camry SE, obviously, not the JBL system, but from what I have noticed the volume of the sound system adjusts when you’re driving. I’ve noticed it increases in volume in higher speeds (when the engine is pushing more) and goes down when you slow down or are stopped. I’m not exactly sure what this is called, but I have heard this is a typical feature in all factory car systems.

I just drove a 2018 Toyota Camry XSE And I don’t think the system is half bad. The subwoofer in the trunk however has a very tiny magnet and I would have to replace it with an aftermarket one to get much better bass.

g1981c says:

you should have removed that windshield cover – you blocked the tweeters and also you should have kept the recorder at driver’s head position not at armrest …

The JBL system in my 2016 Toyota Camry XSE V6 was nothing compared to the Bose system in my 2017 Nissan Maxima Platinum. The JBL system in the Camry just doesn’t sound loud enough. I have owned three Camry models, and in the two previous models (2014 and 2016), I have been disappointed with the stereo and leather seats (uncomfortable). The system in my 2006 Camry, however, was different…I was very impressed with it and it was just a base level LE! I may yet go back to Toyota if they make their seats a little more comfortable, similar to what Nissan has done with their zero-gravity seats, and they put a little more “oomph” into their stereos and make them sound louder!

Leah Thompson says:

Honestly I was interested in Toyota’s with the JBL sound System bc I’ve owned a Bluetooth JBL speaker before and it was so good that it definitely beat the quality of sound that my 2013 Prius has built-in – so I would actually have seamless uninterrupted music and would just play from my phone through my BT JBL speaker and carry it with me everywhere, from the house to the bike to the car. So, maybe I would opt for a different trim level and save on a package and just get another $200 JBL Bluetooth portable speaker! ;P you can also customize and give yourself leather interior for a couple grand. So, I don’t know if it’s worth it to spend thousands extra on a car model that has the extras built in….but if budget is less of an issue…. I was interested and excited Toyota partnered with JBL for their sound System bc my past experience with the JBL brand was surprisingly memorable and excellent.

has high end, lacks power for sq. cheap bass. unit

Andrew Davison says:

The system in a standard sedan like a Camry is never going to be good or great- just okay. Make sure you get the sound package if you want it to be “okay.” If you guys are actually wanting a premium, HiFi sound in your car from the factory, you’ll have to buy something like a BMW 3 series. If you’re not willing to shell out the cash for one or a used one, don’t expect to be bumping in your camry- but don’t make the mistake of not getting the sound package or you’ll be really sorry!

my name says:

Bluetooth won’t give you as good a sound as through an aux cable or USB drive…

Proper Gods says:

Mike is this your other channel?

HeyItsBenAWhile says:

Is this the plus or premium jbl system?

Mark And Blitz says:

TRY a good Tom Petty song instead of that noise you tested. I had to turn it off ,,

Ameer Gaming says:

You need something with bass tf is this plus jbl is trash Bose is better

mjinrak says:

can you buy this jbl system? or is the 2018 camry the only toyota that has this?

Ameer Gaming says:

Toyota should have Bose

kruff39 says:

Are you blocking the sound from the tweeters in the A pillars, with the sun shade?
