XC40 Harman Kardon Sound Issue

Post by DinasBhai » Wed Oct 02, 2019 8:40 am

hopefully find some others with common issues, or maybe be redirected to a post that covered this. I have a XC40 T5 loaded momentum...and picked it up last December. Around 4 months after picking it up, I noticed that the door speakers (Harman Kardon) sounded extremely "tinny". They vibrate during certain notes, especially unplugged guitar music and talk radio or blogs, particularly female voices. So, on the higher range. It just sounds.

Has anyone had this issue? Any advice? I'm about to take it to the dealer for the 10k oil change...

When you're at the dealer listen to the XC40s on the floor.

Bring this up with the dealer, it's your right. Please keep us in the loop.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
