McIntosh and Jeep have announced an extension to their partnership which brings legendary McIntosh sound into another Jeep vehicle. The 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition will come standard with a 19-speaker McIntosh MX1200 premium audio system featuring 1,200 watts of amplification.

The introduction of the MX1200 in the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition blends the two iconic American brands’ class-leading technology once again. McIntosh and the Jeep brand highlighted their new partnership with the launch of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Since then, McIntosh has expanded the availability of its entertainment systems into Wagoneer, Wagoneer L, Grand Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer L, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee 4xe models.

“Our partnership with the Jeep brand continues to be a great success,” said Charlie Randall, President of McIntosh Laboratory, Inc. “It’s exciting to see McIntosh audio systems on the road again and to share our brand and listening experience with a whole new group of customers.”

The entertainment system brings the McIntosh home audio experience to life in the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S interior through state-of-the-art sound and thoughtful design. Featuring McIntosh patented technology, such as Power Guard to eliminate unpleasant, harmful “clipping,” and LD/HP (Low Distortion/High Performance) technology to produce pristine sound at any volume, the MX1200 promises the highest quality, luxury listening experience – paired with high-end, McIntosh-inspired aesthetics. The MX1200 features illuminated logos on the door’s speaker grille, aluminum framing, industrial ridged control knobs and the iconic “McIntosh Blue” decibel meters on the award-winning Uconnect 5 display screen, mimicking the analog version of a McIntosh amplifier.

 “This groundbreaking, fully electric Jeep Wagoneer S will offer the amazing and unparalleled McIntosh listening experience that Wagoneer customers have now come to expect. We have incorporated high-performance McIntosh grade hardware and very dedicated tuning, which encompasses the sound characteristics of our brand,” said Fiore Cappelletto Vice President and General Manager – McIntosh Group Automotive. “McIntosh and the Jeep brand have been a perfect match and, in fact, has helped elevating both brands in a joyful and successful journey as we delve deeper into the luxury SUV segment.”

MX1200 Entertainment System Features:

  • A 24-channel premium amplifier that sends up to 1,200 watts to 19 optimally placed speakers, based on the speakers’ individual needs.
  • Four powerful 6″ x 9″ door speakers.
  • Active coaxial speakers featuring lighter, stronger materials that reduce THD (Total Harmonic Distortion), improve performance and create a more anchored, responsive sound stage.
    • Each coaxial speaker has a 3.5″ midrange and a 1″ tweeter with a dedicated amp channel.
  • 12″ dual voice coil subwoofer, one of the highest performing subwoofers in the industry.
  • Rear speakers mounted in the liftgate that play low enough to blend perfectly with the subwoofer.
