In Reply to: Upgrading the HK system... posted by Jim Carr on November 23, 1999 at 10:39:23:
The HK speakers really suck. This is what I would do: You should keep the HK dash components because the dash will look awkward if you stick in like a Sony receiver or something. Rip out the speakers and put in Infinitys or something you like. If you don't think HK amp is enough, then rip that out and put in some more power. But I definitely keep the HK components in the dash. The HK speakers have no bass. I don't listen to rap, just pop, and the bass annoys me. IT SUCKS.
: For any of you out there that have HK and aren't satisfied, does anyone know of a way do upgrade by just changing out the amp or subs or somthing "simple" like this to make it sound alot better? I've been browsing Mznet.org or somthing like that... alot of people post they do similiar upgrades to there z3 HK's and it sounded much better.
: 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!!
