The mid-sized Hyundai Sonata is manufactured by South Korean automaker Hyundai Motors. This sedan is available in four versions -- GLS, SE, Limited Edition and a hybrid model. The company offers four audio systems with varying wattage in its Sonata line.
Amplifiers are part of device sound systems. Amplifiers work to increase an audio or optical signal without causing distortion. The boosted sound produced is measured in wattage. A small amplifier supplies limited wattage. A home or car stereo amplifier may provide hundreds of watts. The speaker systems found in music and sporting arenas produce thousands of watts.
The six speaker system is standard on the GLS, SE and Hybrid models and has an 104 watt capacity. It has an AM/FM satellite radio with a single disk CD changer.
GLS and SE owners have the option of an AM/FM satellite radio with a CD/MP3 audio system with seven speakers and an external amp that supplies 360 W. They offer the same system with a six-disc CD changer that produces 360 W.
Sonata Limited Edition or hybrid owners may select an AM/FM satellite radio with CD/MP3 audio system with nine speakers and a six-disc CD changer. This system produces 400 W.
Use common sense when operating these systems, which can provide hundred of watts of sound. Use judiciously to minimize safety concerns and noise pollution.
