The Harman Kardon on my 2012 250 C Coupe is at best fair. It has clear crackling at high pitch from the most important center dash speakerHave it also.. as a little audio freak a must say its way overpriced..
Had a premium OEM sound install in my honda (free at sport pack) and it has even more bass then I have now..
doorpanels are giving cracking sound etc..
not happy with it
In fact I have also a Mini Cooper S with Harman Kardon in it and its totally different.. way more bass.
In the CLA you even don't have a subwoofer.
It's on all the time unless you make an effort to turn off the Logic 7. Does make a big difference. I am assuming the base sound is like that. Yike !Dont forget to enable Logic 7 in the sound settings of your stereo if you have Harman Kardon, it makes a lot of difference, I forgot it in the begining as I did not know about it.
Not having a fader function on your radio (even in a 2 seater) is kind of unforgivable on any car today; let alone on a car costing as much as an SLK. If you want to check whether the CLA's radio has one you can download the owner's manual from the MBUSA website.I had a 2005 SLK350 with the premium Harmon Kardon stereo and hated it. There was barely any sound from the rear speakers and the system had no front-rear fader control to correct the situation. The dealer said that was normal for the SLK.
After initially reading this thread I thought the exclusion of a subwoofer would have been a terrible oversight.Harman Kardon Logic 7 surround sound system
