Finally a great stock vs aftermarket speaker sound comparison

i raul says:

Whaaat aa stupid joke! the ”stock” speakers have a plastic cover over them & the volume is by default lower by using some capacitors on the wire inside the box – GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE JBL :)))))))))))))))))))))


my nephew has the jbl 6 1/2 paired to a Sony in dash and those speakers are great. too bad he put kenwood 6x9s in the back.

Luis X says:

Jbl is my fav but now their line up is confusing. Is the Club lower than the GT. Is GX lower than the Club.

Alberto Garcia says:

What are the top of the line JBL speakers?

anon says:

this demo is completely unfair – a stock speaker system, while NOT as detailed or bassy as an aftermarket job, is TUNED for the car it’s in – normally the stock head unit or amplifier has a factory programmed DSP chip in it to flatten / roll off the response curve based on sound deviations caused by the vehicle’s interior or inadequacies in the stock speakers or both. A stock speaker is but one piece that fulfills a role within a larger system and thus is TOTALLY dependent on the rest of that system it belongs to and will NEVER sound good alone – Harman knows this and uses this simple demo to manipulate buyers.

the equivalent would be if you sampled a component tweeter against a full range speaker and then used the logic that because music from the full range sounded so much better, it was superior to the tweeter – apples to oranges

so while you may not be getting in a factory setup the loudest system or bass so low and hard it makes your teeth rattle, modern factory systems are still VERY good, especially considering my man quoted $1,500 all in for JBL’s BASIC complete sound system upgrade. 20+ years it was a totally different story as factory setups were weak and cheap but today, not so much.

that said, you can’t go wrong with Harman products and if you require a level of sound quality / loudness not available to you by the car mfg then by all means, feel confident that when you buy Harman, you buy engineered quality.

Pentti Jakonen says:

While I’m not saying that they were “cheating”, the volume change really makes it impossible to take this seriously. Louder sounds better.

Hobbyandtech says:

But JBL Head Unit is still unavailable

I can do that too, hold my gun says:

I dislike guys like him when it comes to sales makes me not want to buy anything they’re selling even when I do want it.

Rice Burner says:
