Well I figured it out, I was assuming that I needed to turn volume up 2 then down 2 to turn surround , as the instruction for the over counter kicker upgrade amp.
It may do the same , I now have surround sound page on my evic!!!! Whack is great!!!, but don't know if everyone get this, or because it came out of a srt8???

Do u guy that have bought the kicker 8 channel amp from mopar, do u now have the surround sound page on ur evic?????

i have the kicker 368 watt 8 channel amp with 8 BA speakers. the digital surround sound turns on/off with the 2 clicks up and 2 clicks down on the volume button. i do not have any surround sound menu in the EVIC pages.

where is that menu page?

your 322 watt RC-5 amp is different than mine

Our 2010 Jeep with MyGig has the surround sound/Stereo setting on the EVIC menu.
Surround sound is great on DVDs (movies) but sounds bad on music. Much better on stereo setting on music.

I miss wrote the wattage it is 368 on mine, if I hit the "home" button on the steering wheel, then the "pages" button, first screen on the evic is " system ok", hit pages button again "personal setting" next is now" surround side mode" I can choose stero, audio surround, video surround. I guess since this is a oem challenger srt8 kicker amp, that when I plugged it in , it added the surround page on the evic? Which I am extremely happy to have!. The upgrade amp that can be bought over te counter must just use the volume up/ down since some cars won't havethe evic option.

So if you buy a used 368 watt kicker amp out of a srt8 that has evic option
, when u install it u will get the surround sound page on the evic!!!!
Maybe everyone already knows this????

i don't have that menu in my EVIC. maybe i can add it.

are you sure you have a 368 watt amp. as far as i know the 13 speaker srt amp is 322 watts and a 200 watt parcel shelf amp. only the Boston Acoustic 8 speaker system has the 368 watt amp. maybe i am wrong?
