Dodge adds high-performance stereo to SRT-4
Auburn Hills, Michigan – A new Kicker audio system upgrade has been added to the option list of the new 2004 Dodge SRT-4.
“We want to offer our audiophile customers a factory-backed package, just in case they want to tune into something other than the sound of sheer engine performance,” said Dan Knott, Director-Performance Vehicle Operations.
Performance Vehicle Operations engineers worked with their supplier partners at Kicker to develop the audio system upgrade that includes: two one-inch high-performance Neodymium tweeters mounted in the instrument panel, two 6.5-inch full-range 75-watt speakers mounted in the front doors, two rear 90- watt 6×9 coaxials, a six-disc under-dash CD changer and a ten-inch SVC 100-watt amplified subwoofer mounted in the trunk. The subwoofer is tied to the front-channel balance control for the most listening flexibility.
The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the Kicker/SRT Livin’ Loud audio system option is U.S.$795. The system is available on 2004 Dodge SRT-4 cars sold at SRT-certified Dodge dealerships in the United States and Canada.
“We recognize that many tuners opt to install their own audio systems, but we wanted to offer others an outrageous, kicked-up system that’s covered under the car’s full warranty,” said Knott. System performance ratings are as follows:
- Tweeters: 4.5 kHz – 21 kHz
- Front-door speakers: 35 Hz – 5 kHz
- Rear coaxials: 30 Hz – 21 kHz
- Subwoofer: 20 Hz – 100 Hz
The standard Dodge SRT-4 audio system includes a six-speaker AM/FM stereo with single CD player and changer controls.
