B2 Audio

My unfortunate B2 experience with the ref 4 channel and 3 way component set

Recommended Posts

Oh boy where do i start...I'm so insanely disappointed. I've wanted a b2 setup for so long and now i had the funds.

So i spent some serious cash on a B2 Reference 4 channel amp{$1400} and a b2 
Reference 3 way kit. Tweets, mids and woofer in the kit.

I WAS SO EXCITED! I hooked everything up while cutting my wrists because i just spent over $2000 on a 4 channel amp and a 3 way kit.

I dialed everything in, dd1, cc1 i did my proper placement with my tweets and all that jazz. Everything was wired up ready to be fired up. 

Turn the radio on and well...i was...i was so upset. It sounded terrible. Nothing remotely better than my premium bose system i had in there prior. Disappointed, mad and angry i thought maybe it was my crossovers. So i removed those and went active....still nothing exciting. Maybe its the RCA's who knows!? Replaced those...nothing.

I brought in my external eq and fine tuned it...still sounded terrible. I replaced the wiring, added more sound deadening and once again. Nothing worth $600 for a 3 way set

I had a CT sounds kit in my old expeditiin that sounded absolutely amazing for such a dirt cheap price out of the box with no tuning. So i had an idea of ok I'll just do exactly what i did with my old setup and apply it to this one. NOPE! Terrible. 

On top of all of this, being insanely angry over how excited i got over such an expensive setup my damn 4 channel amp stopped working.

Months passed and i got my amp fixed so i went to my last resort and got a helix DSP mk2, had a very reputable shop tune it just incase i was missing something and still no luck. My tuning guy told me to throw these out.

All in all, its a love hate relationship with B2. I'm very angry at the price i payed for all of this.

I'm not here to bash B2 and i know theres a handful of people who do enjoy this brand but if you are reading this B2 please lower the prices down. If i payed half of what i spent i would've been just fine. This left a bad taste in my mouth.

Sincerely, a very disappointed customer...
