Lincoln owners are accustomed to high-end vehicle features—why should it be any different with their audio systems? Thus, it should come as little surprise to learn that Lincoln partnered with Harman International, a premium audio equipment manufacturer, to create two exclusive audio systems for the recently released 2016 Lincoln MKX.
Both audio system options will include loudspeakers from Harman’s award-winning Revel brand, which will make its automotive debut with the 2016 MKX midsize luxury crossover. Consumers can choose between a 13-speaker Revel audio system option and a 19-speaker Revel Ultima option.
According to Soo Kang, Lincoln interior design chief, it was vital that the onboard Revel audio systems were both aesthetically pleasing and technologically precise.
“We worked closely with Revel engineers to create an audio system unique to the luxury car market,” said Kang. “The design of the vehicle interior and the design of the audio system work harmoniously, creating something that is not only beautiful to the eye but also to the ear.”
Lincoln and Harman spent hundreds of hours collaborating on the project over the course of three years, so few stones were left unturned in creating a system that seeks to heighten consumer expectations of what a vehicle’s audio system can be.
According to Kevin Voecks, Revel product development manager, one of the development team’s key concerns was crafting a Science of Sound so that “the placement, tuning, calibration and number of speakers are unique to each Lincoln model.” In combination with their use of psychoacoustics, or the science of sound perception, the Revel audio systems promise to deliver an exquisite audial experience for listeners.
The level of scientific and technological know-how that went into developing the Revel audio systems is certainly impressive. You can learn more about Ravel’s Science of Sound by watching the video below:
