Bose and Cadillac have officially announced the ultra-advanced Bose Centerpoint surround sound system, which has been specifically tuned and developed for use in the 2015 Cadillac Escalade. The system uses new technologies and 16 strategically placed speakers to offer new-levels of audio quality for Cadillac’s new flagship SUV.
The sound system uses multiple different sized speakers, ranging from 1 inches, 5.25 inches in size. Five custom tuned speakers are placed across the instrument panel and front doors, along with one-inch tweeters in each mirror patch and a 5.25 inch subwoofer housed under the center console. In the back there is a set of 2.5 inch tweeters in each D-pillar and 6×9 inch woofers in each door.
Adding to the stereo’s concert-like experience is Bose’s Centerpoint 2.0 signal processing technology, which enables surround sound through all vehicle rows, and SurroundStage, which compensates for off-center vehicle seating to create a 360-degree sound for all passengers.
“Bose’s expertise is in perfect alignment with Cadillac’s progressive integration of advanced technology,” Cadillac Chief Marketing Officer, Uwe Ellinghaus, said in a statement. “With the standard all-new Bose audio system in the Escalade, we continue to elevate the level of luxury offered to our customers.”
Bose Centerpoint surround sound will be standard on all trim levels of the 2015 Escalade when it goes on sale this spring with a starting price of $71,695.
