    There was a post on TMC this morning that's poster states that a 'friend who is a supplier' of Tesla speakers.
    overall, to summarize, he states that his source/friend is claiming the Model ☰ will have a standard and an upgraded audio option (like the S) with the standard including a sub and at a much higher quality than those in a 3 Series. He also claims Tesla's durability standards are 10x that of other auto makers.
    Overall, if true, sounds like Tesla may have been listening to some of the meh feelings owners have about the sound system and the Model ☰ will come standard with a pretty good system.

    @MelindaV,
    Definitely good news....I was previously relegated to the Base System and aftermarket upgrades to the Sound System if needed based on dismal reviews of the S Premium sound.
    I hope your source is right!

    Would be welcome news. Save money for other upgrades.

    Even a base 3 series has Harmon Kardon so to better that it will be interesting. I am not sure if Tesla is keen on making Model 3 sound good in interior as their objective is to have a basic car that's affordable.

    Someone at TMC just sold a story.

    Sound systems are not particularly expensive. Many aftermarket upgrades... aren't.

    If true that's good news but sound systems are not something that I value particularly. My money is spent on other things.

    not any personal connection of mine, just passing along what I'd seen posted on TMC. Poor wording on my part ;)

    Guys, just to be objective, the 3 Series does not have Harman Kardon everywhere, in all countries that is...;)
