Sound System: 10th Gen vs 9th Gen?

There are a lot of threads on here relaying a resounding "meh" when it comes to the audio in the new model. So my question is a little more specific: How does the audio compare against the 9th gen?

I have a 2015 LX on lease and the dealership is offering me an upgrade (basically so they can sell my low miles '15 for a lot more than my buyout price). I'm going to go test drive a Sport 1.5T this weekend, but was curious if anyone had any experience with this. Double the speakers and a tiny bit more power, but will that be better? worse? the same? It's very likely I end up leasing again depending on what I can get from them, and a sound system upgrade would not be an option in that case. I know I'm not buying a Honda for the sound system, but even so...

Any thoughts or experience are much appreciated!

I've owned or driven the 6th through 10th gen Accords and the best I can say is they're all mediocre. If you're an audiophile lay some money aside b/c you don't buy an Accord for the sound system.
