Since B&W doesn't do car audio (though there was a E34 with a disassembled Silver Signature inside :yikes: ), my current work-in-progress is:unleasHell said:B & W isn't it?
How about ADS amps and B & W speakers.
Is it too much to expect the in-dash headunit to show the Minutes/seconds of the CD track as it is playing?
:thumbup:unleasHell said:I found some settings that allow the HK system to perform at it's best for MY kind of music (not thumping Rap).
1) Boost the F/R forward 2 or 3 clicks, so that the front speakers are LOUDER than the rears.
2) Boost Treble 3 or 4 clicks depending on your taste.
3) Boost Bass 2 or 3 clicks, any more that that and you will get too much reverberation.
4) adjust L/R about 1 click to the right.
try that and let me know....
I might have made one of those posts and do agree with this. see my web page for details (lick the WWW button below this message).amzbimmer said:Thats funny because I read a lot of posts from people claiming to be audiophiles that have had $4000 plus systems in their car, and that this "isn't that bad". Except for the kiddies that like to go bass heavy and have the block bumping (I'm sometimes guilty of that). I guess I'll hear the system again and decide for myself in a few....
But I don't think HK is the best company out there. BMW should hook up with Altec Lansing or something....
agreed 100%. I've been a serious audiophile since ~1989 and have installed stereo upgrades in numerous cars (and I've had a LOT of cars compared to most people) and have had high end 2 channel and home theater systems over that period as well.rcc said:I think the general consensus is that if you're willing to spend thousands of dollars, you can easily do better than the H/K. But for $600, the H/K is hard to beat unless you just want more bass. And many audiophiles seem to think that the H/K gives you reasonable sound quality.
I used a sound meter on a tripod on the driver's seat and found that setting the balance to the left 1 tick is the setting to use. I had to move the seat back a little so that the sound level meter was about where my head normally is.unleasHell said:4) adjust L/R about 1 click to the right.
