Warm colors surrounding Acura seats to portray ELS STUDIO® Premium Audio System experience

The current lineup of 2020 Acura models boasts the industry-leading ELS STUDIO® Premium Audio System, but what is this sound system? This sound system is part of a partnership with Panasonic, and it was the product of a collaboration with eight-time Grammy® Award-winning producer and engineer Elliot Scheiner and top auto acoustic experts. This sound system brings the artistic, raw feel of the recording studio to your everyday Wisconsin commute.

Who Makes the Acura ELS STUDIO® Sound System?

Elliot Scheiner is a producer and engineer who has worked with some of the biggest names in music, such as Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Steely Dan, and the Foo Fighters.

ELS STUDIO® Speakers

ELS STUDIO® recreates the experience of the recording studio with proprietary hardware and specialized acoustic technologies. Unsurprisingly, then, Scheiner and the Acura team designed ELS STUDIO® Premium Audio speakers to highlight the unique feel of whatever music you’re listening to. With additional speakers strategically placed throughout the cabin, the ELS STUDIO® speakers create a perfectly balanced experience throughout the interior of your model.

ELS STUDIO 3D® Technology

The Acura RDX A-SPEC® and Advance Packages offer an upgrade to ELS STUDIO 3D® sound, which boasts:

  • 16 Channels
  • 16 Speakers
  • 710 Watts of Power
  • Four Ultra-Slim Highline™ Overhead Speakers
  • Upgraded External Amplifier

This sound system utilizes patented Acoustic Motion Control™ software to optimize each speaker and allow you to luxuriate in three-dimensional sound.

Business Insider’s Car Audio System of the Year

According to Business Insider, the ELS STUDIO® Premium Audio System is one of the best around – in fact, they’ve previously named it their Car Audio System of the Year. As they wrote, “I sampled the Acura ELS Studio 3D system in the all-new 2019 Acura RDX, and I was monumentally impressed.”

The ELS STUDIO® sound system beat out systems from –

  • Burmester
  • Bang & Olufsen 3D
  • Harman Kardon
  • Tesla Audio

“The ELS Studio 3D sounds incredibly real,” writes Business Insider. “It doesn’t sound like you’re listening to a raw studio mix. But it creates a rich analog impression for music coming from digital sources. It’s the kind of audio system that musicians appreciate because it can max out a mix, showcasing the skills of the players and singers as well as the engineers.”
