Should the dealer be able to see this on their screen now, and change my order? Mine is still in BG.....

Resume Speed, where is this info from? Do you work for DCX or a dealer? I spoke to someone via email from brampton and they said they just built 06 srt 8s, about 10 them and only 1 had a kicker because it was for a DC rep. All the others had the base stereo. No BA7. Let me know if you have any more info.....

sincerely,

Don't work for DCX or dealer, just have some good contacts in the biz. The SRT I listed shows that it was sold to a dealer in Highland Park, Michigan. The build sequence is #112447.

Thanks again for the info resume speed, but I like many are probably wondering if this car came with the Kicker, why is the option on hold, even for those of us in D status. I hope it is true, but sounds too good to be at this time. I pray i am wrong. Also curious as to why there was not another internal memo that went out stating the option is ready to go. Keep the info coming. Thanks for sharing.

My understanding is that there was only enough parts to build a limited number of the Kicker SRT-8's. When the limited supply ran out, orders went into standby status. Could be wrong though, just going by what the Dealer told me about my Silver SRT-8.

It's definitely going to a dealer and not a DCX rep, and it's not a FF program or pilot vehicle. I PM'd you some more details.

John,

FWIW now (for me, anyway), on my order sheet it says 'RC5 - 7 High Perf Kicker spkrs w/subwoofer'. If dates matter, mine was ordered on 2/1.

I don't think either of them holds much weight though.

There is only 1 Kicker option, (RC5). The RC7 system is the Boston Acoustic system, which used to be the upgraded stereo option. You need to ask your dealer for an updated Von/order sheet that shows your car's options as well as the build status. Most likely there have been changes to your options as it relates to your stereo upgrade. Good luck.

You are going to get the BA6 speaker Boston system. No subwoofer. It is the system that comes on the touring edition. It is not the BA7 upgraded Boston system. Let us know when you get the car. Good luck.

Can someone describe the BA6 speaker configuration? e.g Number and location of mid-ranges their size (6.5"?) same for the tweeters, coax or separate components? I'm w/ 4Herb - the upgrade sounds more and more like the way to go - at least for those of us w/ the deleted BA7, that still wnat the premium sound.

Below are comments from the Brampton board (from "Wdost"):

I received the following in an e-manil from a staff member at Kicker on Monday 4/11/05

"The Kicker option has been approve for launch for the 300. It is estimated that it will start building in late May. It was assumed that there would be some cars ordered with out the option and they would build first, as it turns out most all of the cars were ordeded with the Kicker system (over 90%). The 06 SRT 8 just started on the line last week...We ship parts based on the plant schedule and have no control over when cars are built with specific options. The final testing and PER is scheduled for week after next and then the option will be released for full production. I hope this information is helpful.

Best regards and Keep on LIVIN'LOUD "

Seems to keep pointing to late May early June builds.


I repeat these are comments from someone else (likely someone who also cruises this board) not me, so I cannot vouch for their origin or validity so they should viewed within that context.
