It improves the standard HIFI which is what I have in my car.
You can hear the small difference but it's worthwhile
Cool! Did you do both option 1 &2?
Yes did both options.

The improvement is minimal. But you can hear it on certain songs as the DSP kicks in

Hi,

Some time ago, have coded item 1 on my car, which has HK audio system. This option replaces the HK L7 surround processor (only on or off) with a multi-option one -- and it really does make a difference

Adding option 2 doesn't seem to do anything to either improve surround sound or add B&W logo

Having said that, option 1 is well worth it and easily coded with Bimmercode or E-SysX

just an update here

Coded option 1 & 2 but decided to keep only option 1 at last as really no changes or any surround effect for all the different sound profile setting * expected as HIFI amp does not comes with any internal build in DSP setting for all these sound profile like B&W amp did.

It do improves but not very prominent as mentioned by NitenD. Overall I just feel like we only increased the gain from HIFI amp hence more bass and louder. But then I found HIFI original midrange speaker cant take it and started to vibrate when loud bass music is playing ... So conclusion is still worth to code no matter how cos at least we can still get " Equalizer " function in I-drive lol . Franky I did not try to adjust equalizer, is it real working or just like B&W fake cosmetic sound profile again ?

I just coded options 1 and 2 in my 21 G05 HiFi and do not hear any discernible difference using any of the inner EQ sliders. Only the outer two function and they match what Bass and Treble are set to.

As for the Sound Profiles I am pretty sure I hear nothing. I want to think I heard something different between Studio and Concert but I'm pretty sure it's wishful thinking. No noticeable changes when adjusting the Surround Intensity either.

I am thinking perhaps as the Hi Fi Amp doesn't do any processing. Perhaps retrofitting a B&W amp might give it the DSP

Hi all.

Just to add that I have upgraded my amp from the stock standard to a Matchup7.
This amp does give DSP settings and does make a big difference even without the coding.

So when I do change the options, I can hear subtle differences due to the fact that I have an upgraded amp, with the standard stock speakers.

Sorry, been discussing this same thing on multiple forums so wasn't sure what I have mentioned where to make the standard HIFI experience better.

New amp + coding = much better sound then originally purchased.
Whilst the EQ doesn't do much, the matchup7 has its own equing and add that with the sound profiles, you can notice a difference.

This post is very helpful. I am retrofitting HK (Amps/14Speakers/2Subs) in my G06. Once I do that, I was looking for a way to tell the car that it now has HK system vs. HiFi. Looking at this post, looks like I can code it to B&W and gain more control over the sound settings.
