Lincoln teamed up with Revel to create a sound system that would deal with all the obstacles to a great in-car sound system -- noise pollution from outside the car, soft surfaces that absorb sound, and hard surfaces that reflect surfaces.

Apparently audio engineering was considered from the very start.

“I was allowed to be there in the clay model studio, and make sure that things that are really important for audio, that auto manufacturers are unaware of, were taken care of properly,” says Kevin Voecks, product development manager at Harman.
The top-shelf version of the system would use 19 speakers, and the second tier version offers 12. Engineers tuned the equalizer to increase the bass as speed increases because road vibrations make bass less perceptible. Engineers even created different sound settings depending on the materials customers choose with their personal MKX.

Good read. Sadly I just got my MKC in January with a 3 year lease :-(

I find reading about stereo and sound systems very interesting, but it is one of those things that you can't really understand unless you get a chance to actually hear the system in operation. I just wonder how big the difference between a standard stereo system and this luxury one is. I want to be able to try each one out one after the other.
