JBL system

Post by nick123jedi » Thu Mar 11, 2021 11:51 am

Hi everyone

I'm looking at getting the C-HR GR Sport and was thinking about getting the JBL stereo. I just wanted to know a couple things if anyone can help:

1) Does the JBL system alter the infotainment system/screen

2) Where are the amp/subwwofer etc - do they impact in the boot space or are they under the boot carpet in the pre-formed storage area where the battery is?

Thanks
Nick

I don't know how if something is different on GR version.
I can talk about JBL on Orange edition.

1. Is the same unit, no difference.
2. Woofer is on the right side of the booth. It doesn't change the booth size.

Highly recommended to go for JBL one!

I believe you dont lose normal boot space, but you lose the little door on the rhs and the space behind it (and the option of removing the door to get that extra space in the boot).
All the best

I can't really say if that space is available to be used without subwoofer. I presume it is.
I'm not complaining about booth space in C-HR. I'm seeing it as a blessing, more space means more unnecessary crap a family will take on rides.
