dc.description.abstract In a world of portable digital media the environments in which we listen to music are becoming more and more diverse. One of the goals of the audio engineer is to create a product that listeners can enjoy in any environment. In my efforts to do this, I came to the realization that I needed a solid understanding of a variety of listening environments and how they affected the reproduction of recorded sound. Automobiles are a very common listening environment for music and other recorded medium; each automobile sound system applies its own sonic coloration to recordings. In this thesis, I will look at the sound systems in two vehicles, the 2015 Honda Fit LX and the 2015 Honda Fit EX to compare the input of the sound system with its output. I will use these tests to determine how well these models of car reproduce sound and compare the sound systems of the two vehicles to see how a "premium" sound system stands up against its "standard" counterpart. I will discuss options and suggestions for audio engineers who want to tailor products for the automotive environment. en_US
