2008 Scion xB: Custom Sound Theater

September 20, 2007

Scions are aggressively marketed to a young, style-conscious audience. With that in mind, the 2008 Scion xB pays very careful attention to that audience, and offers nearly endless customization of the sound coming from its stereo. The above screen shows several options for sound style. A mere button press on the touchscreen, and your sound can have more bass in the club setting or the boomy characteristics of a high-ceilinged cathedral... But wait. There's more. . .

Also included is the option to alter how the sound resonates and bounces through the car, and there are different settings for front and back speakers. The options list is quite comprehensive, with several different menus and touchscreens. Scion knows where its audience is coming from, and it wants to make absolutely sure that it caters to their needs. Good attention to detail. And the sound itself: very nice.
