For a premium audio experience inside of the new TLX, Acura again turned to Panasonic for an ELS Studio setup.

To provide a more immersive audio experience, four slim speakers have been incorporated into the TLX's headliner in key locations, for a better listening experience for front and rear passengers.

There are Twin Telford corner-mounted subwoofers placed at opposing angles to cut down on unwanted rattles and vibrations, and titanium dome tweeters for clearer vocals.

All are controlled by a multichannel amplifier with Panasonic's Acoustic Motion Control technology.

With Acoustic Motion Control, engineers can optimize each speaker independently for studiolike audio.

The result is a sound system that belts out crystal-clear vocals and instrumentals.
