That was the 1st thing I did with mine. It pumped up the bottom very well, but frankly the rest of the system IMHO just isn't up to the task. There are plenty of folks that like/love the HK system. I'm just not one of them.If you want to beef it up- ad a subwoofer in the trunk.
^^^^^^^^^^^^ This, 100% .But, I wanted a loud (and accurate) system that would keep up with all of the noise that the HC makes. It took a substantial investment, but in the end, I've got a system that is way louder than the car is at any speed. Just the way I like it...I have said in many similar posts, the HC is a loud car. If you really want great quality music, put on headphones. Unless you spend a lot of time listening to music in your HC with the engine off, just get the cheap one because with the noise the HC makes it won't make any difference.
Or the HK buyers really enjoy their collective confirmation bias inside an echo chamber of thinly veiled denial and buyer's remorse.For every post advising to get the base Alpine because the car sounds so good anyway and who really needs loud music - there’s another one about how they didnt realize how bad the Alpine would actually be and wish they had gotten the HK.
Heh.Or the HK just sounds better than the Alpine am radio, thus making the remorse undetectable Lol.
I suppose.Remorse? Maybe you are suffering from cognitive dissonance about this whole thing.
It’s not the best I’ve heard , agreed . I’ve had fully aftermarket systems as well. My only point is , it’s far better than the Alpine system.That was the 1st thing I did with mine. It pumped up the bottom very well, but frankly the rest of the system IMHO just isn't up to the task. There are plenty of folks that like/love the HK system. I'm just not one of them.
