In Reply to: Upgrading the HK system... posted by Jim Carr on November 23, 1999 at 10:39:23:
: Any audiofiles out there have any suggestions or input? What is the main downfall of the HK? Just bass? So shouldn't swaping out the subs make this alot better? I really don't know too much, just trying to get an idea what I should do... Thanks!!
Pardon my ignorance but perhaps I'm missing something. Did you listen to the HK yourself? How does it sound to YOU? This is the most important question that you need to answer.
Your ears and satisfaction levels will be different than the guy right next to you so why do you necesarily want what sounds good to HIM? Remember that for every person you find that does not like the HK, you'll find another that does - it is all a matter of preference.
I might also point out that the HK upgrade is speakers & amps (crossovers & other circuitry are all part of the amplifier in the E46s). Why did you spend over $650 for this if you were only planning on replacing these items anyway?
