- six-speed automatic transmission
The full-on Chevrolet Sonic SEMA onslaught figures to go full-steam ahead with the introduction of more models that have been customized to high heavens by the boys at Chevy . One new piece is the Sonic Boom Concept, a car that Chevy cranked up with a sound system-based concept, delivering the kind of boom-tastic thrills for audiophiles the world over.
In setting up the concept audio system on the Sonic Boom, Chevrolet and KICKER Audio drew inspiration from the design of jet engines, emulating their style in the shape and positioning of the components. A high-tech head unit controls the system, which features a pair of 15-inch Comp VX subwoofers, 12 six-inch QS Component speakers and tweeters, six QS Component speakers and tweeters, two IX1000.1 Mono subwoofer amps, four IX500.4 four-channel mid and high amps, and a ZXSUM8 summing interface signal processor. The whole setup is completed to deliver a total sound output of 4,000 watts.
To keep the Sonic’s interior as fresh as can be, Chevy also added a bevy interior modifications, including custom-fabricated rear speaker enclosures and custom load floor, perforated black suede seat inserts, liquid metal trim pieces, a Jet Black leather-wrapped instrument panel with distressed leather inserts and red piping, and a Jet Black leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel with distressed leather and red stitching.
As for the exterior, Chevrolet dressed up the Sonic with an anodized Sonic Boom Red exterior color with custom body graphics, window tint graphics, tinted front headlamps with Boom logo, a Concept Z-Spec grille, a Concept Z-Spec spoiler, and a new set of 19" wheels.
