    I keep seeing mention of the HK radio on several post which don't seem to be very positive!

    Is the HK radio standard or optional on the 2016 hellcat challenger?

    Thank you !

    Snappy is correct, and to that point some are good some are bad....not sure why. Mine gives me a heck of a hard on from the vibration if I play a good quality song at high levels.....I no longer need a girlfriend:p

    Mine is OK and I can probably live with its flaws. I use my iPod and connect to the USB port. Many of the better recorded quality songs sound really good, but the bass can get heavy from time to time....I have bass levels set low on the EQ. Volume is hit and miss as some songs don't get loud at 38...max sound level:eek:. Settings on iPod itself can affect sound quality a bit. XM/Sirius is fair/.avg...at best...many times the windows are down, stereo is off and just diggin' the SC and exhaust duet:D:D

    Windows down on he highway cant even hear the radio unless it's nearly all the way up. The base has to be in negative territory when it's loud but when it's low it's very tinny. Not a great system. Good thing I bought it for the motor. I'm with Snappy, diggin the exhaust tune.

    I have the HK system in my SRT. To me, it sounds great! I'm very satisfied with it!

    It's ok, you can do much better in aftermarket, but not easy on these cars.
    Plus, we didn't buy it for the stereo, but it should have been better.
    There's no bass issue, plenty of it, just the overall sound can be better.
