rosscarlson Posted March 9, 2009 Share Posted March 9, 2009 I figured I'd share some thoughts for everyone. I just upgraded my 2008 2.5i to a 2009 Spec.B One of the options I had in my 2.5i was the subwoofer under the driver's seat. I'd read about how much better the new HK system is in the 09's so I was excited to hear it when I got my Spec.B (as I thought the stock system with the sub in my 2.5i was great). Reminder: I've never heard a stock system without the sub. I was EXTREMELY disappointed. Honestly I think it sounds slightly not-as good. Not worse, just different. Since the moved the sub to the rear deck (as apposed to under my seat) the bass for the driver isn't nearly as punchy. It still sounds very good but the "feel" just isn't nearly what it was before. Sitting in the passenger seat it sounds pretty much like my 08 did. The one thing I do like is you have to turn it up much louder now. My max volume was usually around 12 in my 08 (10 for the radio) where now I'm in the mid 20's for the same volume. What's nice is at volume 1-2 it's VERY soft, soft enough to have on in the background while you talk... Just my two cents... -Ross Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
