    A car this rude and violent should have a better system. I need any and everyone who did a real upgrade to their Cat's to give me some good advice. I hate this chippy sound system, it blows ass. I don't install stereos but if I could I think I could do better. I'm older, not freaking dead!

    No, just the amp under the passenger driver seat. Can you buy that? I'll be honest, I hate it. My Impala LTZ sounds like thunder, stock bose system. I ride sometimes and be like are you ******* kidding me? Where is the anger that this car projects. They took my damn money smh

    I'm going to head to dealer in morn and check it. I got the HK flash but it's still foul. I'll ask about getting the base box. I've seen them on the challengers too, in truck but from what I know it should be a free air sub pointing at rear or seat for cabin, still anything would be better than this tinny sounding crap.

    I actually think the 19 speaker hk system is great. Much better than the 10 speaker beats audio from the scat, and even better than the 14 speaker bang & olufsen from my Audi... That was junk.

    That's a surprising post. Kid across the street has the beats in a 15 Charger SXT which sounds way better than my HK. I did the flash and it improved but I wouldn't say it's great by any stretch. It's acceptable maybe but mostly because this car isn't a DD and when I'm in it I like hearing the exhaust.

    My guess is that the system has flaws because some people say it's great but some hate it. Can't imagine it's just an issue of preference or taste.

    I bought the car cuz it was badass, if they would've offered a 500.00 credit for radio delete i would have been all over it.
    Plus it would have been a weight reduction.

    But it is kinda Calming pulling up to the burnout box with Hell's Bell"s cranked up.

    Just me.

    So I know my B&O system in my SQ5 was basically the same as the one in the same model year S4. The S4 sounded good, the SQ5 sounded like crap. I see you've got a challenger... Maybe the acoustics are just better in the charger? I don't think the Beats was bad, I just think the HK is better. But I'm comparing Charger to Charger...

    Stock Audio system was the best $2k I didn't spend!

    Didn't buy my Hellcat to get a stereo system...ahhhh but the HP and torque. The stereo wasn't highlighted in the advertising.

    The only ground pounding I expect is from that sweet motor and tranny combination.

    I didn't buy the car for the sound system either but I did pay $C1305 for the upgrade and I have no complaints! Awesome bad ass car with a pretty good sound system for when you cant be hearing the growl from the beast.

    My system doesn't meet the description. Someone got a kickback on that deal for sure.
