Lincoln has announced that it has penned an exclusive 10-year partnership with Revel audio systems. Revel is a division of Harman, and is best known for its ultra-premium loud speakers.
The Revel Ultima audio system is going to debut next year in the 2015 Lincoln MKX. That system will use 19 speakers! It also uses QuantumLogic Surround which can seamlessly break individual music tracks into separate channels, piping these isolated feeds to different speakers in the vehicle.
It will also feature Clari-Fi, a patented Harman technology that boosts the quality of digitized music. Audio compression can lose parts of songs, but this system rebuilds those lost parts.
The Revel Ultima sound system will be available in every Lincoln eventually. Hopefully it can add some clout to Ford's luxury brand.
