XM has taken the wraps off of two new universal systems - the XM Sound System and XM Compact Sound System - at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show.
Distributed by Audiovox, the XM Sound System and XM Compact Sound System will work with a variety of XM radios, including: RoadyXT, SKYFi3, XpressEZ, Xpress, XpressR and XpressRC, as well as the Inno and Helix with an optional adapter (sold separately).
The XM Sound System (pictured above) features two woofers, two tweeters, bass boost, and a 10 watts RMS amplifier to produce quality sound. The system also includes an Audio In jack for playing an iPod/MP3 or CD player. A foldable handle, internally stored XM antenna, and more than 18 hours of battery life allow listeners the option to take their XM Radio from the home or office to the patio or picnic table.
The XM Sound System (model # XMBB1) will be available for the suggested retail price of $99.99.
The XM Compact Sound System (pictured below) is a sleek, tabletop unit with an aluminum surface and black grille cloth design that fits smaller spaces like a night table, kitchen counter, or desk. The system features four full-range speakers, a four-channel enhanced digital audio processor, bass boost, and a 16 watts RMS amplifier to deliver dynamic sound. And, like the XM Sound System, it includes an Audio In jack for playing an iPod/MP3 or CD player.
The XM Compact Sound System (model # XMAS100) will be available for the suggested retail price of $149.99.
