Thank you for your insight! I have never tested it out, but I am hoping it gives me what I want in a sound system without going aftermarket. But, for the time being, I will only have 9 total speakers for the system by replacing my stock 6 speakers. I am going to research adding rear door speakers as I already have rear door panels with speaker grilles. It may be a PITA to wire but I'll have car audio professionals do it. Then I'll have to see about the other 90mm's that I'm missing (1 in the dash, 2 in the trunk).
The H/K is the top speaker upgrade for any 300/300c. These "premium" upgrades from Alpine/Beats are less expensive options but are supposed to be upgrades. Now, if Chrysler was still offering the 10-speaker Alpine alongside the Beats system option, and made customers pay a lot more for the Beats over the Alpine, that would be a serious issue. Because customers would be paying ~$1000 to add a tiny trunk sub. But they removed the Alpine 10-speaker option, used the same parts, added a trunk sub, and rebranded it as Beats to appeal to more buyers. Which still surprises me, as I thought the Beats system had its own custom speakers. But that is the fun of marketing I suppose.
