Hallo,

I would like to make a simple question...
Tried 2 custom 4.4 Roms on my LG G2 (droidkangs and mahdis) and in both versions I noticed the same problem...
The speaker sound (even though loud) is of VERY bad quality when playing deeper sounds like basses!
In stock Roms the sound (same MP3) is crystallclear... Tried many settings in DSP manager... Tried almost everything I found in iNet, but I am going back to stock based Roms as on max volume its like my speaker is broken :/ (when I use headphones or BT headset I don't have that issue)

Could any1 please tell me what the reason for this problem is?? Is it normal that the sound quality from speaker is so much worse than the stock versions??
And can this be fixed?

Please, if some1 knows the answer just give me the info as I rly don't want to go back to stock Rom :/

Thank you!

CyanogenMod the sound is pretty low, on Mahdi's pretty high. Try equalizer settings on those ROMs. It might require a tweak to your liking.

Same here. Running CM11 and speaker quility cracks up when it gets loud. I tried messing with Viper, but alas, no improvement. Don't think there's a fix yet though..

Mahdi has same issue if you max sound... I think that all the 4.4 roms have this problem so flashing other customs won't help.
