2011 Hyundai Sonata: Ken Who?
October 07, 2010
I dove into our 2011 Hyundai Sonata's sound menu and found Ken C. Pohlmann's name on a screen. Who's Ken Pohlmann you ask?
No, his name isn't on this screen...
You must proceed to the Variable-EQ screen here:
Like Acura's Elliot Scheiner-designed audio systems, and Lexus's Mark Levinson, Hyundai have teamed with Ken Pohlmann, a digital sound engineer to provide a digital sound processing for the Sonata's audio system. The left side of the screen doesn't respond to pressing, but the right side does.
Here's a screen describing the various output options.
Pretty standard stuff, but a nice little Easter egg in a car where you might not expect it.
You also might recognize Ken's name as a contributor to our recent Comparison Test of Six Budget Premium Audio Systems.
