Har­man Kar­don

Motor Trend - - Comparison Test -

$800 op­tion, 600 watts, 13 speak­ers incl. two sub­woofers (dash and left rear quar­ter), 12-chan­nel am­pli­fier sur­round

Spec­tral: Highly tai­lorable with nine-band equal­izer and four pre­sets; neu­tral set­ting pro­vides eq­ui­table dis­tri­bu­tion of fre­quen­cies.

Spa­tial: De­spite mul­ti­ple sur­round op­tions and ad­justa­bil­ity, spa­tial sep­a­ra­tion of in­stru­ments and vo­cals not as spe­cific as with Jag Merid­ian sys­tem. Best sur­round ex­pe­ri­ence from rear seat.

Dy­nam­ics: De­spite high sys­tem wattage rat­ing, max vol­ume was lower than other sys­tems, but sound rich­ness and qual­ity is equal at all lev­els.

In­tegrity: Noth­ing rat­tled or vi­brated.

Over­all im­pres­sion: Of­fers the great­est level of ad­just­ment, but lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence trails that of Jaguar Merid­ian sys­tem.
