McIntosh has announced that its MX950 Entertainment System is going to be integrated into the next-generation 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee, offering drivers an immersive audio experience akin to a live musical performance.

The MX950 Entertainment System uses several patented McIntosh technologies, and boasts 19 speakers in 12 optimal locations, including a10-inch subwoofer. With a 17-channel amplifier, the MX950 provides up to 950 Watts of clean, uninterrupted power with McIntosh’s patented Power Guard technology and LD/HP (Low Distortion/High Performance) speaker design.

Engineers were apparently given full discretionary power to reimagine the audio system design to envelop all passengers in McIntosh sound. Custom automotive variants of the home audio system were created from scratch, each component specifically developed for the vehicle. The custom-tuned, coaxial speakers each have a 3.5-inch midrange and a 1-inch tweeter with a dedicated amp channel.

Powerful 6 x 9-inch door speakers play lower and louder, with the rearmost speakers mounted in the liftgate blending with the 10-inch Dual Voice Coil subwoofer.

McIntosh and Jeep are equally iconic American brands. Charlie Randall, President of McIntosh, and Co-CEO of McIntosh Group, said: “When we decided to return to automotive audio, Jeep was a logical choice for us, and given the pedigree of the Grand Cherokee, we were excited to be included in the new 2022 model."

The MX950 incorporates McIntosh’s iconic styling cues in the Grand Cherokee Laredo, featuring the brand’s blue decibel output meters in the display, metal ridged control knobs, aluminum speaker frames and backlit logos on the door speaker grilles to accent the interior lighting with McIntosh’s signature blue.

The McIntosh MX950 will be available in Grand Cherokee Overland and Summit, and standard in Grand Cherokee Summit Reserve.
