Post Sound Group II necessary?

Hello from Georgia! I will be purchasing a 2013 jazz blue Challenger RT with silver hood to fender stripes. I listen to music every time I go driving, so sound is important to me. I am a new to things, so I don't really understand Sound Group II. If I got RT plus package 28J and Uconnect 730N, would that basically be Sound Group II? Package 28J seems to include the Boston Acoustic speakers, I was trying to figure out what to do. $2000 28J + $790 Uconnect 730N, or $2000 28J + $1200 Sound Group II?
Thanks, and its good to finally go from "Lurker" to member. ^_^v

After market stereos you can get alot for the money you will spend but if you want the factory radio, which is good too, go for the sound group 11 ! IMO

I understand that after market parts are also available...if that's what you were trying to say. My question was whether or not the RT plus 28J package combined with Uconnect 730N was comparable to Sound Group II.

Welcome from another former lurker.

If you choose either the 430N or 730N, you will have to also choose either Sound Group II or the Harmon Kardon Audio Group.

I have the 430N and Sound Group II and am very pleased with the sound. I like quality audio and I'm very happy with this system.

Hope that helps.

A little more info that might help clear things up a little. You get the 6 speakers and a 276 watt amp with the Plus package. With the Sound Group II you get a 368 watt amp and 7 speakers with sub woofer.

So that means you have to pay for the 430N AND Sound Group II? I see. Well, thanks for the help! That was confusing me. Does the Plus Package include the 6.5 touch screen?

If I could ask another question of you, How long will it take dealers to get more Jazz Blue Challengers in? I've discovered that blue is a rather rare color in the Chally world. Plenty of blacks and whites and reds...and yet it is blue that calls my name. ^_^

You're welcome.

The 6.5 touch screen comes with the 430 or the 730.

I know how confusing this is. I went through it about a year ago. I studied the Build and Price website for weeks, looked at lots of window stickers, talked to dealers and read lots of threads on here before finally beginning to figure it out.

You'd have to ask the dealer or someone more knowledgeable than me about Jazz Blue availability.

Some more info. The 430N has the Garmin GPS. The 730N has something different. I looked at both briefly and liked the Garmin better.
