Can you confirm if the SRT8 standard sound system includes what is in the Sound Group II package that is an option on the other models.

Thanks, MarcusG
Current info shows the 276-watt amp as Standard, along with 6 BA speakers - not the 7-speaker/368-w system.

The Media 430 is also Standard, but it is on restriction until the end of the year. The Media Center 730N RHR is a required option at this time.

I guess a Six Speed Manual Transmission is out of the question for the V6. Still, paddle shifters are better than nothing

I assume "required option" means it is not in the current base price?

RS, thanks for the information. Would appreciate a heads-up if Dodge adds the Sound System ll to the SRT8 Challenger while waiting on the HK system to be de-bugged. I am still hopeful of getting this in my ordered car before a build date is set.

Thanks for all your help.
