Har­man Kar­don Pre­mium Sys­tem

Motor Trend - - Comparison Test -

$875 op­tion, 360 watts, 12 speak­ers incl. two sub­woofers (un­der front seats)

Spec­tral: Bass over­pow­ers all other fre­quen­cies at neu­tral set­ting. Had to turn it down, and sys­tem only of­fered tre­ble/bass ad­just­ment.

Spa­tial: Sys­tem claims to of­fer sur­round sound, but there is no ad­just­ment for it, and we had dif­fi­culty plac­ing spe­cific in­stru­ments or vo­cals. Seemed like a closed stage.

Dy­nam­ics: Pow­er­ful, crisp sound at high vol­ume with no dis­tor­tion.

In­tegrity: No trim or panel vi­bra­tion de­tected.

Over­all im­pres­sion: More dif­fi­cult to jus­tify the pre­mium price of this sys­tem, which we ranked third in sound qual­ity.
