Krell Introduces Audio Systems in 2014 Acura RLX


Krell-Systems-in-Acura-small.jpgKrell today announced that the 2014 Acura RLX will be the first-ever automobile to offer an audio system produced in collaboration with Krell Industries. After decades of satisfying home audio enthusiasts, Krell Industries was able to bring high-end performance to the 2014 Acura RLX.

To insure that the system had the power and range to meet the demanding needs of the automotive environment, Acura reportedly embraced Krell Industries' philosophy of musical detail, three-dimensional sound presentation and extreme volume capability.

The system's most important main amplifier channels feature the same high quality bipolar power transistors used in flagship Krell home amplifiers. The result is an amplifier that has reportedly 1/3 less distortion than a leading competitor's flagship luxury car amplifier and power and headroom to meet the obstacles that the road will throw in its way.

The system's tweeters are composed of lightweight magnesium cones that create extraordinary musical detail and extended high frequencies without any trace of harshness. The speakers employ metal grilles that are inherently stronger than the plastics used for most car audio systems. With this strength, the grille can have more open area without compromising its integrity or sound performance. Metal grilles also vibrate less than typical plastic grilles.

The system's six mid bass drivers are made from Zylon - the world's strongest super fiber. This very rigid material is perfect for speaker manufacturing. Zylon responds very quickly to a musical input but more importantly than that; it stops moving when the musical signal stops. Polypropylene cones, which are used in the vast majority of car audio speakers, continue moving well after the music stops. With less unwanted vibration, the sound quality is much cleaner and more detailed with Zylon based speakers.

Rounding out the speaker complement is a carbon fiber composite subwoofer. The dedicated 100 Watt subwoofer amplifier insures that low frequency music is reproduced cleanly.
