The next car to benefit from Chrysler’s partnership with Beats by Dr.Dre is the 2012 Dodge Charger.
They will unveil a Charger fitted with Beats audio system at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and Detroit Motor Show.
The 10-speaker audio system complete with an 8-inch Beats Audio trunk-mounted dual-voice coil subwoofer with sealed enclosure is linked to the car’s UConncet system, which is enhacned with a bespoke “Beats by Dr. Dre” start-up screen for its 8.4-inch display.
The system also controls the 12-channel amplifier that integrates the heart of the Beats proprietary equalizer algorithm, creating the high-definition sound Beats Audio founders Dr. Dre, and Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, require in their professional recording studios. Other features include:
- Three 3.5-inch speakers located in the instrument panel
- Two 3.5-inch speakers located in the rear doors
- Two 6 x 9-inch front-door woofers provide bass
- Two 6 x 9-inch speakers and a center-mounted 8-inch speaker located in the rear-shelf area provide full-range audio
This kinda explains why Dr. Dre is yet to drop the Detox. He’s too busy making speakers and headphones.
