CNET Recognizes Dodge Charger's Beats By Dr. Dre Audio System As 'Best-Sounding Stereo' In 2012 Car Tech Awards

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The legendary Dodge Charger with its segment-exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre studio-quality sound experience is being recognized by CNET, a leading provider of tech product reviews, as the "Best-sounding Stereo" in its 2012 Car Tech Awards.

Throughout 2012, CNET reviewed nearly 100 cars and attended auto shows around the world to find the best in automotive technology, and for this year's award, CNET editors favored Chrysler Group's implementation of the Beats Audio system in the Dodge Charger as a system that's attainable by the masses.

"We are honored to receive CNET's award of 'Best-sounding Stereo' in our Dodge Charger," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "With the Dodge Charger, there is no compromise. From its segment-exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre audio system delivering 552 watts, to its 300 horsepower V6 and segment-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission delivering best-in-class V-6 fuel efficiency of 31 miles per gallon highway, the Charger delivers precision and performance, in an iconic design that starts at just 25,995 MSRP."

Beats by Dr. Dre founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine worked side-by-side with the Chrysler Group's engineering team to design and tune the Charger's 10-speaker audio system. The resulting audio experience offers the Dodge Charger sound that only music experts like Dr. Dre, a legendary producer and artist Iovine, an acclaimed producer and chairman of Interscope Geffen-A&M Records, could achieve.

"Our goal in partnering with Beats is to revolutionize the way people listen to music in a vehicle, giving consumers an in-studio experience from the seat of their car," said Marios Zenios, Vice President, Uconnect Systems and Services - Chrysler Group LLC. "The Beats by Dr. Dre audio system in the Dodge Charger includes a powerful 12-channel amplifier that integrates a proprietary audio enhancement algorithm, creating the high-definition sound required in professional recording studios."

Delivering the mid- to high-range needed for studio-quality sound are three 3.5-inch speakers located in the Charger's instrument panel and two 3.5-inch speakers located in the rear doors. Two 6 x 9-inch front-door woofers deliver bass, while two 6 x 9-inch speakers and a center-mounted 8-inch speaker located in the rear-shelf area provide the full-range audio that CNET praised. Maximizing how music genres from hip hop to rock should sound and feel, an 8-inch Beats Audio trunk-mounted dual-voice coil subwoofer with sealed enclosure delivers tight, powerful, punchy bass.
