Default Sony vs B&O - Fake Engine Noise

I just went from a ‘17 Lightening Blue Raptor to a ‘18 Shadow Black Raptor. On the ‘17, the Sony system had a sub out, so I added a sub box with 2 10” subs and an amp under the rear seats. It really sounded good, with deep bass. When I traded, I took out the amp and sub and had it installed into the ‘18. Come to find out, the B&O does not have a sub out so the stereo shop had to tap into the system with a filter for high frequencies. Now I have the fake engine noise going through the sub and it doesn’t sound as natural when you get on it. It has an annoying drone....

i took it to the dealer today to have them shut it off, but they hadn’t dealt with that before and couldn’t see where to do it. I personally know the tech, so I know he wasn’t blowing me smoke. Does anyone know how to do it without using Forescan? I would really like to shut it off and keep my sub. Thanks in advance.

Forscan is the only way I have seen.

The sony has another sub output in addition to the sub undet the seat?

Why not just do it through forscan?

My assumption is he just tied into the sub out used by the Sony sub. The B&O system does not have a sub, that why I have the issue I do. I honestly can’t believe it doesn’t have a sub? In this day and age, all premium stereo systems should come with some kind of a sub!

i have the b&o and it sure sounds like it has a sub. Are you positive it doesn’t?

The other day, I pulled my sub amp out and adjusted the low pass xover down and it made a noticeable improvement. I don’t have that low drone. The fake engine noise is now deeper, but not really annoying like it was. I can live with it now....

Mine has a sub, right where the Sony was on my other truck, behind the center back seat.
