Sony High End Audio Standard In Ford Explorer Premium Edition
Apr 16, 2015

The system is based on more than 100 hours of tuning to optimize the audio for the vehicle. It is also designed so music sounds like its coming from a stage that’s larger than the vehicle itself, said Sony.

The Ford Explorer system uses 12 high-power speakers in 10 locations and an all-new Class D amplifier. Combined, the 12 speakers are capable of a maximum 500 watts and include center and surround speakers, a subwoofer with an 8-inch enclosure, and door woofers and chrome tweeters with translucent grilles.

Sony says the speaker’s coils are square instead of round, for greater efficiency and heat dispersion.

“Explorer is about pushing boundaries,” says Matt Zuehlk, Ford Explorer brand manager, “and authentic high-end home theater sound isn’t just for the living room anymore. The new Platinum series gives customers everything – including a sound system that will knock your socks off.”

The Explorer is a top selling midsize SUV. The Platinum edition also includes features like a 10-inch digital display and leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel as well as active park assist, lane-keeping system and rain-sensing wipers plus 20-inch wheels.

The full audio system includes:

Two 1-inch dome tweeters
Two 6×9-inch door woofers
One 80-mm center speaker
Two coaxial (1-inch tweeter and 6.5-inch woofer) speakers
Two 80-mm surround speakers
One subwoofer system (12-liter enclose with 8-inch driver)
500-watt high-power amplifier with high-performance DSP

Shawn, Mike and the guys at Car Tunes can do anything! Plus, they are knowledgeable, patient and do what ever it takes to satisfy you. I have been taking my business to them for the past 10 years years, they have installed systems in my trucks, cars, boat and my classic 1971 Olds 442. Hell they even fixed my door lock on the 442, I could not find the part so they fabricating the part. These guys are fast, reasonable, and above all else, the best in the area. If you need to make a return trip (which is very rare), there is no hassle or run around like so many other stores do, they just fix it. Period, these guys do it right - THE FIRST TIME! I am not big on referrals, but have never thought twice about sending family, friends and even my customers to them. I can't recommend them highly enough if you want good, honest and personal service take your business to Car Tunes.
