Top 10 Sound Systems in Cars Over $30,000 for 2002!



1. 2002 Lexus LS 430 (Mark Levinson)
2. 2002 Mercedes-Benz S500 (Bose)
3. 2002 Volvo S80 T6 (Mitsubishi/Nokia/Harman-Kardon)
4. 2002 Infiniti Q45 (Bose)
5. 2002 Land Rover Range Rover (Alpine/Harman-Kardon)
6. 2002 BMW M3 (Harman-Kardon)
7. 2002 Acura TL (Bose)
8. 2002 Cadillac Escalade (Bose)
9. 2002 Porsche 911 Cabriolet/Porsche Boxster (Bose)
10. 2002 Hummer H1 (Monsoon)

Pretty much what I suspected, the Volvo system is second only to Mark Levinson in sound quality, but ergonomics leave something to be desired, relegating it to 3rd place.

Yeah, I'm not surprised that Mark Levinson beat the S80's system to the first place.
Maybe if the S80 was still using the same systems that the C70 has, it might still have a chance.
Then again, Mark Levinson is pretty much as good as you can get for home audio system(unless you are a real audiophile have some sick custom made collector's equipment), can't really beat that with just Alpine or some other mainstream brand.
Just kinda surprised that even Mark Levinson is like the new kid on the block for car audio, it was able to maintain its reputation.
Arggghhhhh...I just can't wait to get my car back today and listen to the system in the C..

I think that the C70 Vert should have won for the best top-down sound system, beating the Porsche 911 Cabriolet/Porsche Boxster (Bose) system. Maybe they didn't consider it in their tests?

Just went on Carpoint to see what kinda options you can get with that car. Man...it's got some mad packages to increase the car about $15K or more with different luxury items.
Wanna be like Porsche?
