I'm trying to find info on the premium sound system. I "chatted" with Lincoln and the person didn't know the answer, and said they will get back to me. Anyways thought I would check here. Does anyone know how many watts the stereo is, is there an amp, and what size is the the subwoofer.
Here's the Specs per the MKC sales brochure:
"Enhanced THX II Audio System with 14 speakers, 700 watts of power and a 14-channel amp with distributed bass technology; includes HD radio"
I sprang for this on my MKC. You'll read a range of opinions on this extra cost option on this forum, most positives dealing with sound clarity and most negatives related to lack of a subwoofer bass punch.
On balance, I really like it. Last night, drank a couple glasses of wine, sat in the garage and fired up the Steely Dan Aja CD. Could dial it in to hear all the instruments and sounds that I am used to hearing on my fairly $$ home stereo system. I'm happy.
Sorry if I wasn't clear, I'm looking for the specs for the regular stereo that is used (Lincoln Premium Sound System), not the upgraded THX system. I was going to order the THX, then I read the bass isn't great, and the "subs" in the THX model are 6x9. Those aren't subs!
Don't underestimate the THX systems. Have it in my wife's MKS & my MKX, very happy with it.
The THX system in the MKC is nothing at all like the THX ithe MKX, the MKX system is significantly better, it plays much louder, and has a great sub. The THX in the MKC has no sub at all, only the Premium Sound System Sean Jones is inquiring on does.
As for the specs on the Premium System, the sub is a crappy 8", with a tiny 100 watt amplifier. The front and passenger component systems are driven by the built-in amp in the radio. The sound is very clear, and never distorts, but not all that powerful.
The factory sub is a real piece of garbage. I removed the factory sub and amp and replaced it with a Rockford Fosgate Punch 325 watt amp, which fit perfectly into the OEM spot, and put a Rockford super slim 10" sub. What a huge difference this makes to the overall system, adds the depth it was missing. A $400 total investment, and sounds way better than the $1000 THX option.
ShirtMKC- love that suggestion on the sub. I do find the spatial imagery left to right kind of 'tight", i.e., the L and R dash speakers seem close together. Has anyone experimented with tweeters/mids on the tops of the doors or other places?
