    Can you pin point it to a particular speaker? Can’t remember if the F20 has bass speakers under the front seats, if so check there isn’t anything sat on them like a coin or anything.
    If it’s everything then could be the head unit faulty. I assume there’s nothing aftermarket fitted?

    There will be speakers under the front seats, check there is nothing on top of them like a piece of paper that will vibrate.
    By the way, you will have 6” mid bass speakers under there that can be changed for 8” subs (y)

    Will it improve quality? I will have a look today I drove the car to work and if works back to normal, will check it after I finish
    How how much is that 8’ speaker easy to change?
