CarPlay sound quality

I much prefer Spotify to Apple Music - the UI etc are much much better. However, I've noticed that the dynamic range of Spotify when plugged in to my Alpine iLX is markedly less than when I use Apple Music. Basically there is little bottom end or resonance. My playback settings are HQ.

Glad someone else has spotted this. It seems to be worse at volume 11-13 then it becomes a flat noise with harmonic distortion across high mids and treble.

Exact same issue. Other CarPlay audio apps (Amazon, Casts) all sound as expected. I think Spotify may be making some assumptions in the coding about vehicle play that the others aren’t.
