Lincoln LS Has first THX Certified Car Audio System Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 September 2002
Renowned THX® sound quality goes mobile this fall with the introduction of the 2003 Lincoln LS, the first vehicle to offer a sound system certified under the recently announced THX Ultra Premium Car Audio Program.
The new THX program, the company’s first for the automobile market, draws upon THX’s two decades of experience in sound system engineering and acoustics for professional and home applications to redefine the performance standards needed to deliver the highest quality audio performance in an automobile.

“Our objective with this new program is to do for automotive entertainment what we did for the movies, home theatre and multimedia — provide standards to ensure the best possible performance,” said Robert Hewitt, Director of Sales, THX Ltd. “Today’s luxury car buyers expect a top quality audio system, so it’s natural for THX to apply its extensive experience in sound to this new category, and we’re excited to have Lincoln as the first to offer a THX system.”

The 2003 Lincoln LS THX-certified system offers:

• 10 speakers, including four high-sensitivity two-way speakers (one in each door) and two subwoofer speakers in the rear package tray;
• Four 50-watt amplifiers to power the door speakers and two 32-watt subwoofer amplifiers for high output without audible distortion or compression;
• THX customized equalization to deliver the best possible sound to each seating position, and three user-selectable modes that optimize the sound for any number of passengers;
• 107-dB maximum sound output, combined with undistorted output peaks in excess of 120 dB, to preserve the music’s dynamic range under all conditions;
• Six-disc in-dash compact disc player and AM/FM stereo receiver.
