THE SOUND OF A LEGENDARY NAME

Subaru Outback

TAILOR-MADE SOUND FOR SUBARU

For 2015, the all-new Subaru Outback is even more spacious and more fuel-efficient than its predecessor. The legendary engine with its unmistakable soundtrack is one of the many unique elements of any Subaru. For the soundtrack inside the car, Subaru made no compromise and chose Harman Kardon as their sound system supplier. Engineers from Subaru and Harman Kardon came together at a very early stage to define the unique sound system tailor-made for the interior of the Subaru Outback. The Outback comes with a powerful 576 equivalent watts 8-channel high-efficiency GreenEdge amplifier and an eight-speaker set-up.

FOR THE HIGH STREET OR THE HIGH DESERT – HARMANKARDON IS SUBARU’S PARTNER


Two 80mm midrange speakers combined with 16mm tweeters are integrated into the dashboard, together with an 80mm high-efficiency wide dispersion midrange speaker. The front doors are home to two high-efficiency midwoofers, while the rear doors house massive coax 170 mm high-efficiency midwoofers with integrated 25mm tweeters. Another high-efficiency midwoofer in the side panel behind the rear seat rounds off the impressive setup. Powerful basses, crystal-clear highs and a mighty mid-range sound arethe result, making listening to the Harman Kardon sound system in the Subaru Outback an experience just like being there.

Aimed at people with very active lifestyles, at families and individuals with a variety of hauling needs, this legendary all-wheel-drive off-road vehicle has been the hallmark of the Subaru lineup for years, and one of the best-selling all-wheel-drive vehicle´s in the United States.
