ELS Studio® Premium Audio System Featured On The All-New Acura TLX Performance Luxury Sedan

10-speaker, 490-watt system engineered specifically for the TLX by Panasonic Automotive and award-winning recording engineer Elliot Scheiner

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America, in conjunction with Acura/Honda, is pleased to announce its ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, tuned by Elliot "ELS" Scheiner, will be available on the all-new 2015 Acura TLX. The system will be available on all TLX models equipped with the Technology Package or Advance Package.

Scheiner, working with Acura and Panasonic engineers, tuned the system specifically for the interior of the TLX Performance Luxury Sedan. The system was developed with the goals of achieving extended frequency range, lower distortion, enhanced clarity and transparency to create a studio-like audio experience for the TLX.

Personally involved in each phase of development, Scheiner utilized his more than 40 years of expertise as a professional recording engineer and producer to tune the ELS Studio Premium Audio system to the TLX's acoustic environment.

"Having spent thousands of hours in recording studios helps to translate the studio feeling and emotion to give users the ultimate automotive listening experience," said Scheiner, the multi-Grammy® Award-winning producer/engineer. "Developing an ELS system specifically tuned to the individual interior of a car takes hours and hours of listening and adjusting. In the end, by tuning the in-vehicle system hardware using the studio as our reference we have been able to give listeners an up close studio feeling and experience in the TLX."

Each system features a new, high-performance amplifier that provides powerful and accurate midrange and high-frequency response with increased clarity. The TLX-ELS Studio Premium Audio System's 10 speakers create a dynamic listening experience for all seating positions.

2015 ELS Studio/TLX System highlights:

  • Two Hybrid Titanium Dome Tweeters designed to deliver transparency, stunning vocal reproduction, dedicated amplifier channel for each tweeter
  • Three 8-centimeter Super Dynamic Range (SDR) speakers with double-press polypropylene cone, providing low distortion and extended bass
  • Four 17-centimeter Super Dynamic Range (SDR) speakers in the front and rear door featuring extremely lightweight designs
  • 20 centimeter Super Low Distortion Driver (SLDD) Subwoofer with extended bass response to 20Hz keep
  • DSP Multi-Channel Power Amplifier with 490 watts of system power

"From the onset, our objective has been to work with Acura to differentiate their product line-up from other luxury vehicles by providing customers with an audio system that would be recognized as offering the highest sound quality in the market. Our engineering team, working together with Elliot Scheiner and the Acura engineering team, continuously strive to achieve this goal. The market response to the ELS Studio systems has validated this approach. The new high-performance hardware on the ELS Studio System provides powerful and accurate sound experience in the new TLX. The system is designed to create the feeling of being in the studio with the musicians," said Tom Dunn, Panasonic Automotive Systems of America, Director–Global Audio Solutions Business Unit.

In addition to the TLX, the ELS Premium Audio Systems are available throughout the Acura line-up including on the RLX, MDX, RDX and ILX.
