Re: Here's your Harmon Kardon Subwoofer

Regardless of what it looks like, I've found the bass performance in my HK system to be one of the best I've had in an OEM system.

My last two cars had much better systems, my 2011 kia sorento had an Infinity 10 speaker system that blew this one away. i find to get any good sound you have to have it turned way up.

We had a Bang & Olufsen in our Audi that was the best I've heard to date.

Had a Fujitsu 10 in a 1986 626 that blows this HK a new one. Yes FACTORY.

Re: Here's your Harmon Kardon Subwoofer

Everyone's tastes are different

My Jeeps system is miles ahead of the HK I had in the 2013 300SRT8 I used to have and better than some aftermarket systems I've had

Then occasionally it's pretty average depending on music type and source

I concur.
The sound system is one of the things FCA didn't screw up,

Re: Here's your Harmon Kardon Subwoofer

The HK system in my 2014 Summit is incredible. I couldn't care less about what the sub looks like. Infact, the fact that its as small as it is all the much better. Its like what do you guys want them to do, put a stupid huge ass 12" box in the back?
I have owned about 25 cars (yes and I'm only 35 years old), and the HK audio in my '14 is the best I have heard....by far! Unless you guys are listening to the worst quality station or some terrible quality streaming audio from your phone, the bass and clarity is outstanding. People will complain about everything...its what they do.

Re: Here's your Harmon Kardon Subwoofer

Agree I think the HK system sounds great as long as you are using a good source(not XM).

...or FM....this GC...my last GC.....and all the various FCA demos my wife drives have less than stellar FM reception....even when tuned to local stations. It's about on par with the hidden antennae on my bike......and not nearly as good as an '06 Jetta I had.

Re: Here's your Harmon Kardon Subwoofer

I love the sound of mine. If anything it has to much base for my liking.

Re: Here's your Harmon Kardon Subwoofer

The magnet on the stock Alpine 8" is about twice that size and weighs a decent amount. Too bad the enclosure is no better than a gas can.
