Harman Kardon Sound System issues 2015 GC SRT

Hi guys,

I have a 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT in Canada. I updated to the Harman Kardon sound system. The problem I am having it when I am playing music at vol 34-38, the speakers with cut out for a quick second. I have tried it on Bluetooth, usb, cd, xm and even on fm (although rare on fm). The dealer has replaced several components such as the amp, deck and a bunch of speakers. I am currently going through arbitration and was wondering if anyone is having the same issue. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Holy crap... volume at 34-38? I always thought 15-16 was more than loud enough for me. I can't imagine listening to anything that loud.

At that volume, could the amp be clipping?

It sounds like your amp is 'clipping.' Turn the volume down or risk damaging your speakers! 19 speakers + amp . . . impressive! SQ . . . not so much! Get a quality, aftermarket amp, speakers, sub, DSP, cables, etc and the sound will blow your mind! Right now, it's just making your ears bleed!

Re: Harman Kardon Sound System issues 2015 GC SRT

Thanks for the replies. I upgraded to this sound system since I didn't want to go through the hassle of doing a aftermarket system/mod. I am curious to know why it would only happen on my srt and not on my buddies.

Happens on my summit with Harmon kardon at around the same volume level. Just turn it down that's way too loud.
