    I'm disappointed in this system. With the amp that comes with this system you'd think it would be loud. Also, has anyone had trouble with the SD card and the USB ports not working? Does it need an update?

    I think we need to start a section just for HK questions/complaints haha. SOOOOOOOO many threads about the HK not sounding as it should. There are suppose to be updates out, and coming out that have helped some, and not others. Someone else mentioned there is a wiring issue they found in the amp and a fix for thtat is suppose to come out to. I haven't used the SD card or USB ports yet. But what size drives are you using? It will only read reliably up to 32gb i believe, or make 64gb is good now. But yea, do some searches, you will find at least a dozen threads on the HK system.

    Thanks for the reply. I used a 128gb SD card but only used about 6gb so far. Problem is when I installed it in it's slot the screen never changed. Shouldn't it at least register the there's a card installed?

    i think thats part of the issue, too big of a drive and it won't even recognize it. Try a 32gb should be good. I think some people have used 64 and said it worked, but i am not positive. I am going to try a couple SD cards when i get back in July

    I have a 64g and it works, but you have to format it in FAT32 and mp3 files. It wouldn't work until I did that, and got the tip from someone on here can't recall who.
    Look for the thread "won't recognize my sd card" or something like that.


    Edit: It's actually NTFS I meant to say that worked for me.
    Sorry for the confusion.

    I sure hope Dodge does something about this. Lots of complaints about sound quality.. I know mine is very dissapointing.

    I've said it before to, and a lot of people agreed, but the sound quality is actually pretty good, it just doesn't go loud enough.

    It could be better that's for sure, and if it had more equalizer adjustments (3 bands dont cut it), it might actually sound good.
    It's ok though, didn't buy the car for the audio, and since that's included in the price (Challengers) I'm not too upset. If I had a Charger though I'd be in SRT's ears on this.
    I've spent thousands on car audio, only to grow tired of the car and lose all that money sunk into a system, never again!

    I am using a 128 GB SD card. Try formatting in NTFS and then loading the files (mp3 or wma). Put it into the slot and give it a few minutes. Mine takes the longest to load when it is inserted, if I leave it in it loads much more quickly.

    Aux and USB connections were not working. Tech found intermittent short in the console connection. Actually short resulted in amp cutting out to prevent over voltage situation. New connectors on order. Sound was great through aux port (when it was working).

    My solution to hk audio system issues.....double alpine x series with 2000 watt rms alpine amp with 5 farad capacitor and adjustable gain at radio installed on top of factory system (disconnected factory sub only). Sounds great now

    The speakers can't handle any more volume. I am waiting for some speakers to be replaced in my car now. The shi+ ones that came with the HK system have cracked from the weak volume. Now they just rattle. Can't even listen to music now. Junk!!! Thank god it's under warranty. Car is so fun to drive but a real POS.

    The subs are crap, I did a separate thread on it and the pics show 2lb magnets on them. Planning to upgrade separate amp and JL Audio dual 12s soon

    My system sounds great I thought until I was in a SRT8 with the Kicker setup. Why would they stop using Kicker after that?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
