Acura/ELS Surround Sound System

Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer, Elliot Scheiner, helped design the Acura/ELS Surround® Premium 10-speaker Sound System to reproduce music the way it is heard in the recording studio. As a result, surround sound fills the car from any stereo digital source. In addition to all the source inputs of the standard MDX audio system, features of the Acura/ELS system include:

  • 410-watt amplifier with digital 96 kHz sampling for crystal-clear sound
  • 12.5 gig hard drive and an updatable Gracenote® database
  • USB** Audio interface with iPod®*** integration
  • MP3- and WMA*-compatible disc player
  • 10 speakers—1 per door, 2 tweeters, 1 center mid-range, 2 rear surround, 1 powered 8-inch subwoofer
  • Detailed audio system displays through the navigation screen
  • Almost all functions can be performed by Voice Recognition


To ensure your audio system recognizes the latest releases, it is recommended that you update the Gracenote database quarterly. Please click here to obtain the latest Gracenote database.
