Alt. Rockers Foo Fighters Use Acura TL as Mobile Studio


Torrance, Calif. 06/06/2005 -- The groundbreaking audio system in the Acura TL served as a mobile studio for platinum selling rockers, Foo Fighters. While recording and mixing their latest album, "In Your Honor" in 5.1 surround sound, the band found themselves without the DVD-Audio capabilities to listen to the cuts. One of the band's mix engineers Elliot Scheiner, who collaborated with Acura on the TL audio system, offered up an Acura TL. The TL's DVD-Audio system provides separate dedicated channels for center, left front, right front, left surround, right surround and subwoofer channels. These are the same six, individual, discrete channels recording engineers use to create multi-channel mixes in the studio.

"The TL provided the band with the perfect environment to listen to their new album in complete surround sound," said Scheiner, "They literally sat in the car for hours listening to 'In Your Honor' right outside their recording studio. They were blown away by the sound quality and had a hard time parting with the car."

With the TL parked outside their Los Angeles- based studio, the Foo Fighters listened to the final surround sound mix in the comfort of the performance luxury sedan.

"We were totally psyched about the TL," said Dave Grohl, lead singer. "This car rocks - like our new album."

The Foo Fighters two-disc album will hit stores on June 14th with a tour to follow.
