My Harmon Kardon is Garbage- 674 HK

Post by OK51MON » Tue Mar 06, 2018 8:25 am

I have a rainbow setup in my other e8X car and its soo much better.

Can anyone advise on the best way to upgrade my sound system in my 2012 F20- CIC (Now NBT retrofit)

My option list is 674 Hifi Loudspeaker System Harman Kardon.

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Has anyone else upgraded FROM this system to an aftermarket.

Many Thanks

What do people think of the Harmon kardon system? I have a courtesy car with it, and I wouldn't call it garbage but it's not what I'd hoped for.

My 1 series (2014 F20) had the standard system, and I liked it. Not stunning like a custom setup but a good full bodied sound.

The HK sounds thin. There's a lot of treble which I find a bit tiring while driving. Turned that down and turned up the bass but it still doesn't sound how I'd like it.

I'm assuming the 2 series convertible I'm in now still has a sub like my 1 did?

Min is a CIC HK so an earlier one NBT version is much better :)

A little late, but may be of use to someone reading the thread down the line.

I've had an E82 Coupe, and F21 3-dr-hatch, and currently on an F22 Coupe. All three have had HK from the factory.

In both coupe's the system has sounded superb. However, it never sounded right in the F21 though it improved a bit with time.

Hope this helps someone,
Tony.
