From HK to HD, We take BMW's top package and take it to whole different level in Audio performance.
In this write up we are using BMW 640D Gran Coupe, this is also a stealth install apart from the 2 Boot Active Woofers.
Harmon Kardon Is a fantastic option for many, plenty of power, more speakers, a false image of 3d surround and a pretty badge!
Just like all other big brands household icons who get there name plastered on the car door speaker grills these give you that reassurance that what you are buying is the top, the best and be all and end all of the car audio world.
This is the same as saying a Ferrari cant be called rubbish because its a Ferrari, but if you have seen the F1 film Rush when Nikki Lauda calls it "a piece of c**p a sh*tbox" everything can be revised and improved upon.
and this is what we have achieved with this install!
Full compliment of Audison speakers
Audison Bit DMI
this interface allows us to maintain all factory gongs, bongs and warning noises
interface with the factory MOST signal
input a digital optical signal to the processor
To deal with so many channels we need a complex and deserving Digital sound processor or DSP for short.
to power the speakers from the processor a multi amplifier setup is needed.
on this build we opted for 2 Audison SR 5.600 1000W amplifiers
that's 2000w over 10 channels more than enough for this car.
on this system we wanted to take the strain from the under seat woofers and also hit lower bass performance.
we opted for 2 Audison APBX10AS2 woofers
these are 800w active 10" woofers
On this system 90% of the install is hidden but to control the DSP profiles, System master volume, bass and other controls we installed the Audison DRC MP in a custom made Mount.
with ease of control and clear visibility from the drivers seat.
This system now has a total power potential of 3600w over 16 channels, the sound is balanced, time aligned and a pleasure to listen to at any volume distortion free.
