    I have the 2015 challenger hellcat with the cloth seats and my buddy has the brown lether seats and he said he has the better sound system. Is this true or is everything the same??

    No he has the 15. Does the 16 come with a better system?

    The 15s you had the option to upgrade to the Harmon kardon system. From what I understand the 16's automatically come with the upgraded system.
    At least that's how it worked for the Chargers.
    Also the type of seats in your cat make no difference on your sound system.

    The stock system is the system that comes with the 2015 hellcats if you didn't upgrade the sound system to Harmon kardon

    I don't know what brand. The unnamed brand

    Some of the 2015s only had the Harmon system. Kardon was fighting with FCA over software and amp upgrades so he held out. Eventually they were put in a cage fight with FCA ;)...we all lost and HK is in every Challenger. I think it's a good system, but for 2k this thing should rattle my teeth.

    BTW - whatever year, ensure you get all of the updates. Tremendous difference (at least for me) in my previous car.

    Depends on year and build dates. Just call your dealer with your VIN and complain your stereo doesn't sound great. Some are flash updates, one update is an actual amp swap.

    Firmware updates for the HK system. My 2015 was a late build and it did not show that it needed the firmware update. However the system sounded like it was playing through a kazoo when faded to the rear. My dealer applied the update and it is a totally different system now. Sounds great.
