LR2 will be the first vehicle to utilize Dolby® Pro Logic II® 7.1 surround sound; a new wave of acoustic wizardry.
The system is nearly as complicated as its name. It comes with 14 (count ‘em!) speakers including a center channel, rear surrounds and a subwoofer. This breakthrough sound system, developed by Alpine, uses advanced fiber optic connectors and includes the now requisite iPod jack. It’s powered by a whopping 440-watt amplifier so everyone – in every seat – will get the live music performance experience previously only available in expensive home theater set-ups.
Dave Sheen, Alpine’s OEM director says “Alpine believes no matter where you sit in the car the sound experience should excite. 7.1 channel systems provide just that and with rear fill speakers, passengers are equally enthralled by the surround sound experience, not just those in the front. This is highly important for a family-orientated car like the Freelander 2.”
And Robin Dyer, VP Europe Consumer Division at Dolby noted, “We are delighted that such a prestigious and important car debuts the Dolby Pro Logic II 7.1 technology. The technology is in harmony with the Land Rover interior and provides stunning sound wherever you are within the car, and wherever the car takes you,”
Look for the LR2 with the 7.1 sound system sometime in Spring, ’09 with a starting price around $33,000.
