Actually it's 18 speakers counting the subwoofers. Like with the Kicker system they count 2-way speakers as "2 speakers".
So for 18, I'm guessing we have some 3 way speakers. 2x woofers, 4x fill (6" or 6"x9") 3 way speakers, and then 4x tweeters and or dash speakers (or 2 and 2)

New: 8-speed auto transmission for V6 models
I just re-read that after following from another thread. Ugh, the 5 speed is outdated and they have nothing lined up to replace it? It needs at least a 6 in the V8s, especially the Challengers.

I've got an obsession with AWD, and I'm just thinking an AWD Chally would be cool. Oh the possibilities...

It is my understanding that the 8 speed automatic will replace the current Mercedes NAG1 5 speed as the default transmission.

There should be no difference in price.
Um, really? RS has said countless times the 8 speed will be limited to the V6, at least for now. Maybe as a future project...
