Bavsound Brings The Noise

We may occasionally rant against all-things BMW on this podcast, but deep in our dark hearts there lies a soft spot for the Bavarian beasts. This seems to be the case for Jeremy Whittle and Jason Seaver, because the pair are part of a company called Bavsound. Essentially, Bavsound is an audiophile haven aimed at making BMW vehicles a better place to listen to music.

Hosts Jeff Glucker and Blake Z. Rong dive right into the chatter with the Bavsound crew to get the low down on all things automotive audio. We learn that Pink Floyd can make you cry under the right circumstances, paper speakers aren't terrible, and factory systems can always be improved upon.

    Proud owner of a factory-equipped McIntosh car stereo here! (Hint: Not the Ford GT)

    Didn't one of the early 2000's subaru Legacy/Outback come with a McIntosh stereo?

  • James MacIntyre

    2001 Subaru Outback VDC, that and the L.L. Bean model got it for that generation. The Ford GT has an identical unit, I believe the same speaker system as well.

    How does it sound?

  • James MacIntyre

    11 speakers, 200 watts, pretty excellent for the time, especially compared to a friend's base model system. I got the car used, but new it was as expensive and loaded as a 3-series wagon. Subie went after the Germans hard. But it was too pricey and styling-deficient.
