Re: Sound system: Summit vs. Overland

Definitely when you are comparing them do not use XM as your source, it is too compressed and they will both sound about the same and terrible. Put in a well recorded SD card and then compare them. You will notice the difference Summit will sound much better in my opinion. That is how I compared the two.

Greetings,

You should be happy with your choice and have a great time with it. Just watch out for those speed traps.

Best for now.

Re: Sound system: Summit vs. Overland

One thing that I have heard people say over and over when comparing the two systems is, "Don't listen to the radio, definitely not XM, because the quality is too compressed". As a result, they are saying that the difference in systems will not be all that noticeable. However, if you are only planning on listening to the radio when driving your Jeep (and not Bluetooth, SD Card, USB, etc.), then you should compare the two systems while listening to the radio. I listen to SiriusXM 95% of the time, and did not hear a huge difference between the two systems when listening to SiriusXM. Since I liked everything else about the Overland better and the difference in sound was negligible for my listening, I went with the overland.

Bottom line: When comparing the two systems, compare them using the interface(s) that you will use most often. If you only notice the difference when listening off of a USB stick/SD card/Bluetooth connection but never use any of them, the difference between the sound systems does not matter for you, and there would be no reason to upgrade to the Summit solely for the sound system.

Hopefully I helped.

I agree. My point is, if you are only listening to XM (even though it "sounds like crap"), the difference between the two systems is negligible. As a result, somebody who is only going to listen to XM and does not notice a difference between the two systems when listening to XM should not upgrade to the Summit just because of the sound system.

Re: Sound system: Summit vs. Overland

Greetings,

I do not know why Chrysler is still using the same receiver for Sirus/XM. The SV200 receiver for the aftermarket is far better. In fact, Sirus/XM online is far superior to any of their receiver's.

I gave up Sirus all together and sticking to my premium internet music apps. This way a I get superior sound, that is closet to a CD quality. It also helps to have a an aftermarket headunit.

Best for now.

Yeah I would agree with that if all you listen to is XM and all you ever will listen to in the future is XM then why even compare anyway just buy whatever the cheapest available stereo is. but any of the other formats SD, USB, Streaming Pandora, FM all have a notable difference between the two stereos when comparing which people should evaluate if they use them. I have a lot of friends who are stereo enthusist types that put money into stereos and all have moved away from XM to SD or streaming, due to signal quality. Some people are really into stereos and how they sound and some people are not buy whatever makes you happy the only person you need to please is yourself.

Perhaps, but if your sound system were good enough, you might just find yourself listening more and more to better source material. The sound system in my new Summit has changed my expectations of sound quality in a vehicle, and changed my listening habits. I'm listening almost exclusively to my own music, via a 64GB SDXC card. And loving it.

What surprised me also was the bluetooth streaming of Pandora I thought that was going to sound as bad as XM but no it sounds great more like SD. Was a nice surprise, I use that and SD for any type of music, XM if I want talk radio which isnt much may drop it when next years renewal comes along.

Re: Sound system: Summit vs. Overland

I don't listen to that many Sirius stations but I have noticed a signifcant difference in sound quality between them.

For instance, the Highway (country) sounds considerably better than Hair Nation, which comes across very tinny.
