I have only been in a Outer Banks with the upgraded radio. How is the sound with the standard radio. Tough to find a BS with the upgraded radio other than the one I drove but did not have the 360 + option, so that not an option for me.

Thanks

One youtube review i watched said the stock speakers are basically pure garbage.

Sound is very subjective. You’d have to hear it yourself to judge how good/bad the system is.

Very true. I haven't heard it, only the upgraded version, and that was the only review that I had seen that specifically mentions the standard speaker system.

If you’re an audio person that enjoys music on the louder side then the stock radio should be avoided, speakers are too quiet and distort when turned up.

Honestly that's typically the case with most stock speakers, unless you're getting a luxury vehicle.

Yes, test drove a OB with stock radio. Not very good. If your AM radio and newstalk, sports you will be fine. Gotta find one with the upgrade unit.

Thanks

The frustrating thing is the upgraded sound is only available in very expensive packages, and if the only thing someone wants in that package is improved sound then it's just not worth it. Hopefully they parse out more of the parts of the package as individual upgrades in future models.

Most of above is probably right, but I haven't yet needed to get mine up load enough to distort. I will probably find it flaws soon, but for 90% of my use it sounds great.

I have the Outer Banks with the BO stereo. It has 10 speakers and a sub. The sound is very impressive. I am a fan.

I have Badlands without Badlands package (wow that is confusing). I think the stock system is adequate but I'm not an audiophile. Probably down the road I may get the speakers upgraded.

I ordered outerbanks with outerbanks w/o moonroof. Once I take delivery, I'll let you know what my wife thinks as she cares more about that than I do.
