Yep, it's all marketing. I haven't heard either system yet so I can't comment there, but the Summit doesn't have 10 more speakers than the Overland. They are using a 2 way speaker and calling it two speakers. Not really the case.The old manufacturer calling multiple speakers per channel trick.
I agree with you completely (although I do not like either rim style) and I wish the HK Audio system was available in the Overland.Has anyone heard both? Thoughts? I'm liking the looks of the Overland better than the Summit, but the better audio seems to require the Summit.
Any real world opinions out there?
Good point.Im sure you could buy 9 HK speakers and replace the factory amp with a better one for well under 1K minus install and im sure you would not be disappointed with the sound.
The challenge will be integrating the 3rd party system with the JGC's electrical system. It's a lot harder these days to drop someone else's system in these vehicles because of the computerized electrical bus that touches pretty much everything. "Doable" with certain adapters, but challenging, nonetheless. And the MY14 bus is completely different than the MY10-13 models.My plan is to do a loaded Limited and use the cost savings as compared to the Overland to buy an aftermarket system that doesn't suck.
To me, those multi band equalizers in vehicles are more trouble than they are worth. I had like a 9-10 band equalizer (Premium Sound option) in the 2010 BMW M3 I had and I never liked the thing. Bass, Mid and Treble are fine.An equalizer with more bands built in would've been nice in either car instead of them just putting in a bass treble and midrange graph you have lower priced cars with better sound systems then that.
