I have noticed that I sometimes get a minor static and then just turn the 3.5mm plug slightly while plugged into the AUX jack and it goes away. So I will aslo agree that it may have a ground issue too. I have thought about opening up my dash to see if I ground it myself if it makes an improvement.
I am not able to really comment on about the BB equalizer use within my car becuase it only works once plugged into the BB with a jack and same goes for the audio boost which I have on and is only relivant when I plug in my travel speakers at the pool, etc.
I love the BT gateway and the freedom of no cords to listen to music and all my ringtones play through the speakers so I know what I am receiving and it shuts the music off once it is a call. It does not transmit the calls though :(
What you are saying is true, however, it does not reflect the original issue. The sound that you are getting through the BT gateway does not pass through the head phone output connector, which is where the problem is, I believe.
I am having similar problems: when connecting the BB Storm directly to my AUX input in the car (from the head-phone out connector), the sound is terrible (low, lack of bass, etc.). I have then purchased the BT gateway, and using this to stream the music to the AUX port in the car audio system, I get MUCH improved sound quality (actually, it sounds better than anything else I have used so far...), with some quirks - volume seems to go down after an incoming alert message (be it e-mail, or voice call) and I have not found a way around that yet.
