I do not know what bulbs are OE in your headlamps but they are likely 55 watt, maybe higher.

Depending on the HID kits installed, max HID load after the HID lamp is at full pressure is 51, maybe 52 watts per lamp so, unless you have a bad ballast, I would not suspect that you HIDs are causing your low voltage problem.

As appropriately suggested, total your load with those accessories mentioned and you will likely see that you are exceeding threshold of the output of your electrical system and using more current than the alternator is furnishing.
