A Sonic Symphony Throughout the Cabin

This setup places listeners at the center of the performance without compromising fidelity or accuracy.

Titanium Tweeters for Unparalleled Highs

Door Dynamics

High-power 6x9 inch mid-bass drivers deliver stunning dynamics from each of the four doors, ensuring a well-rounded and balanced audio performance.

Front Staging Brilliance

Three high-performance 3.5-inch coaxial speakers located left, center, and right across the instrument panel ensure uniform front staging. These speakers work seamlessly with the mid-bass drivers for a full three-way sound experience.

Rear Row Three-Way Sound

Two 3.5-inch Coaxial Centerback™ speakers, housed in unique enclosures located in the back of the driver and front passenger seats, provide a full three-way sound for second-row occupants.

Aesthetically Pleasing Integration

Unique Klipsch Reference Premiere metal speaker grilles with dual-etched diamond-shaped openings integrate seamlessly with the diamond knurling patterns found throughout the interior of the Tungsten trim, adding an aesthetic touch to the auditory excellence.
