For more than 70-years McIntosh Labs has been producing hand-made, ultra-premium amplifiers, speakers, and other top-shelf audio equipment. So, when Jeep needed to find an audio company to develop a top-notch sound system for its new Grand Wagoneer Concept, the automotive manufacturer turned to the fellow American brand.
The collaborative project is far from McIntosh’s first foray into designing sound systems for vehicles, with the New York-based brand first dabbling in the space with Harley-Davidson and then Ford just after the turn of the millennium. The result is just as spectacular as you’d expect from McIntosh and sees the company employ its standard-setting Reference System into a car for the very first time. A stunning blend of form and function, this Hi-Fi audio system’s elite speaker set up is controlled via a stacked set of touchscreen displays that are supplemented by additional screens on the back of the headrests. Pricing and specifics on the number of speakers, wattage, and frequency range haven’t yet been revealed, though, for more information, you can check out the full press release linked below.
