Acura’s ELS Sound System Is the Pinnacle of Audio

February 27th, 2017 by

Accessing your favorite music, podcasts, talk shows, and audio books is easier than ever with today’s technology. The ELS Sound System, engineered by Grammy Award–winning recording producer Elliot Scheiner, unleashes the unadulterated sound spectrum of all audio types. From crisp highs to balanced mids and bold lows, this audio system has been designed to mimic recording-studio quality. Edmunds praises the ELS Sound System by recognizing, “clarity and tonal balance were near perfect, and timbre and tonal accuracy were strikingly authentic and background details were tangibly vivid. Bass impact had a visceral quality and dynamics were like those delivered at a live performance.”

The ELS Sound System Comes in Many Forms

The ELS Studio Premium Audio system comes in multiple formats, depending on the Acura model and package. Each speaker layout is strategically placed inside the vehicle to maximize efficiency within the cabin space. Engineers have even taken into consideration features such as the MDX’s rear entertainment system to include ceiling-mounted speakers for enhanced surround sound purposes. Careful planning and proven methods are implemented within every ELS Studio setup.
