Neeed Help from the ICE Gurus
The present ICE setup on my getz is as follows
HU Blaupunkt Hamburg MP 57
Rear Speakers Blaupunkt GTX 693
Front Component speakers Blaupunkt V 662
Sub woofer GTX 7
1 No 4 channel amp model no Blaupunkt GTA 4
1 No amp sony explod 2 channel to run the sub woofer
also have two nos tweeters installed flush on the door panels of blaupunkt.
my query to the gurus is no doubt the loudness of music is there but what i need i a better treble response as well better response to midranges. I mostly listen to rock , like doors dire starits pink flyod etc.Can the gurus help resolve this problem. Presently the budget is a constarint as recently have alo installed a custom made FFE , Tri Phase, NGKs etc.

1. disconnect the extra tweeters. Use only those supplised with the components.
2. set EQ to flat.
3. upgrade front components to Infinity/Hertz Hi Energy/Blau ODc/THC etc.. set HPF for front components to 60Hz/12db or there abouts.

I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with his equipment. Quite likely it has been tuned badly.
@sanjz, could you please list the model numbers of the speakers properly? I sense a problem of model numbers v/s description.
For example, do you have Vc662 or Vx662? You mention component speakers, but I don't think any Blau engineer would add another pair of tweeters. The other confusing part is "flush on the door panels of blaupunkt". Best would be if you could post a pic of the front door.
As Navin said, first set all the settable parameters to 0 (bass 0, treble 0, sub gain 0 etc.) at the HU. Don't change the gain setting at the amp (I don't think it is at 0), but set HPF to 80Hz for the front components. Increase volume a couple of points at the HU, play some familiar music and then tell us how it feels. Increase the gain at the Sony amp if you feel the sub is too soft.
Don't worry, you will be able to tune it yourself to your own liking.

Thanks navin, DerAlte
DerAlte what i meant was that the extra tweeters are Blau make as well, and are flush mounted on the front door panel . sorry for the typo.I shall try and do, as advised, but you will have to wait till the weekend for me retune and post results here .
