One thing to be aware of is that on all of the 2015 Super Duties including King Ranch and Platinum, you are not getting the true Sony Audiophile sound system that has the 350 watt amp and high quality speakers that are included in other Ford MyTouch Navigation systems like is on the Ford Explorer.
Instead, the 2015 Super Duty comes with a cheap low quality paper cone speaker system with apparently a 4x35 amp installed on the subwoofer behind the back seat. The sound is a disappointment and lacks any clarity or definition. The Sirius stations are virtually unlistenable.
Don't be fooled by the Sony logo on the door pillar tweeter pods as you are not getting the Sony high end sound system that are in other Ford vehicles.
The 2008s King Ranch had the respectable audiophile system on the King Ranch. The 2011 took a step backwards with the 'Premium' sound system and the 2015 is worse than the 2011 Sound System. It is not enough and is not tuned or equalized for these trucks.
The truck is not bought for the sound system but it would be better if Ford put higher quality into the sound system at least on the Lariat, King Ranch or Platinum trucks.
To improve it, it will take at least $1200 to upgrade the speakers, but that will not address a better amp with the addition of a signal processing unit to get the sound cleaned up with clarity and definition.
