Harmon Kardon issue

Hi All,

The other day all my speakers were suffering from a high frequency interference but only on Bluetooth audio or USB audio (iPod on lead) it was ok on radio. Disconnecting either iPhone or iPod made no difference. It only cleared after leaving the car off for about 20 mins. It hasn't happened since.

I have had some terrible noice from my HK speakers a couple of times as well.
It sounded almost like a blown speaker, but it is not from the same speaker every time so I suspect the amp to be faulty.
Dealership can`t find anything as the error only occures every now and then.
I am interested in knowing if this turns out to be a common fault as my dealer states "they have never heard about it before".

Yes that's what it sounded like but it was coming from all speakers.

I have the exact same problem as you to guys! My car is just 5 days old, so i'm a bit dissapointed. The dealer will check things tomorrow. As we speak both midrange speakers in the front doors just stopped working.
I was the first to report this issue to my dealer.
Will followup tomorrow to tell you what my dealer finds out!

Got my car back from the dealer now, and they ordered 2x new midrange speakers for the front doors. I hope that will fix the problem. Too bad the delivery time was about 1 week. Every time i use the BT handsfree, the midrange speakers make a terrible noise. So i have to use my handset to make calls.
