MX950 McIntosh Entertainment System

Seeds for MX950 McIntosh Entertainment System for the Jeep Grand Cherokee were planted four years ago when engineers from both organizations collaborated on the Grand Wagoneer concept vehicle revealed this past September. And now with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, customers will soon be able to experience what it is like having a McIntosh Entertainment System with them on-the-go.

The all-new 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve features a standard, premium 950-watt, 19-speaker McIntosh audio sound system displayed on the new Uconnect 5 10.1-inch touchscreen.

Wall Of Sound

For over seven decades, McIntosh has been involved in high-end home audio and popular culture with sound systems handcrafted in their factory in Binghamton, NY. The company’s amplifiers were used to power the original Woodstock and the Grateful Dead’s groundbreaking “Wall of Sound” which cemented McIntosh’s reputation as a true American icon.

In Car Audio

McIntosh is no stranger to car audio, having delved into both OEM and aftermarket fitments in the 1990s. In the new millennium, McIntosh developed custom solutions for Harley Davidson special editions, and the 100th anniversary edition of the Ford GT.

“We understand that customers don’t just want great sound,” said Charlie Randall, President of McIntosh Laboratory, Inc. “They want to get a full sensory experience. And that’s why it was so important that we left no stone unturned to deliver a true McIntosh Entertainment System for the Jeep Grand Cherokee L. We’re thrilled to bring our brand to a whole new group of people who may never have experienced McIntosh before.”

To ensure McIntosh luxury home audio experience was replicated in the vehicle, engineers from both companies worked hand-in-hand to fuse form and function into the system architecture. Engineers constantly went back and forth between the test vehicle and the McIntosh Reference Room itself to ensure a truly authentic McIntosh experience, even in a car.

950 Watts

The MX950 McIntosh Entertainment System has 19 speakers in 12 optimal locations to deliver sound through every inch of the vehicle and a 17-channel amplifier delivers up to 950 Watts of power. The system has LD/HP® speaker design to lower distortion and McIntosh Power Guard® for clarity even at very high-volume levels. The most advanced materials technologies were used to make components lighter, yet stronger, so speakers respond faster in delivering timely sonic reproduction.

McIntosh Styling

The system incorporates McIntosh’s iconic styling cues such as the metal ridged control knobs, in the look and feel that have made McIntosh instantly recognizable to fans around the world. Backlit logos on the door speaker grilles accent the vehicle’s interior lighting with McIntosh’s signature blue. The Jeep Grand Cherokee L’s subwoofer grille is emblazoned with the McIntosh “Mc” logo as it appears in McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks.


The 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L is equipped with the MX950 McIntosh Entertainment System and will arrive in Jeep dealerships in the second quarter of 2021.
