At first I was lukewarm about the built in BT speaker, but it looks awesome & specs/features are interesting!

Does it sound like that’s RJ’s voice in the video?

On second listen, I don't think it's RJ's voice.

Also, in the docking portion of the video...is it just me, or does it look to others like the LE/Adventure with the BT option does not have the slide forward console drawer?

Yeah, seems like it slides in below the center arm rest area. I like it, looks stout! Considering the amount of space all over the vehicle, I'm okay with sacrificing a drawer that would likely become a wasteland full of random stuff.

I have several thoughts. (Imagine that :) )

-Looks like a very large BT speaker. Given how good the sound is on my megaboom, which is smaller, I'd imagine this to sound pretty good.
-Pretty sleekly docked under the center console
-I'm concerned about the lack of activity in the factory, at least where this was filmed. Especially as it compares to the activity in the videos we've seen from Lucid with a similar launch date.
-Looks like this will be a test mule vehicle, given the emergency stop button. Lets get these on the road already!!!

PS. I don't want to alarm anyone, but I swear it looks like the Bose logo on the front door speaker grill.

I'm betting this was filmed quite awhile ago. And it doesn't look like it's on or near a production line either. Construction noises in the background too.

I agree about junk, my consoles get filled with it & then rarely accessed. However, I was hoping they would have a removable soft pack cooler option in there for easy drink access and to grab & go.

Perhaps the base surround sound system is Bose? Or maybe Bose is doing the Elevation stuff. I know they’ve had good reviews from like the Panaray system in upper-trim Cadillacs

Or it’s just a random design that happens to look like Bose 🤷‍♂️ Kinda low-res video, and a bit old too

Are we taking about the thing I circled? Cause I mean, kinda? Could be Bose. Could be B&W. Could be a random decorative inlay

That thing better lock in super tight!! People are going to lose their minds if it turns into one of the infamous vehicle “rattles”. Better crank that 360 audio to drown it out if so!

BOSE is hit or miss in the automotive world. I’ve heard it in some applications where I was disappointed by how mediocre it is, some (like my Volvo XC90) where I think it’s really pretty good but maybe not amazing, but also in my Panamera where I’m constantly amazed by how good it is and one of the best I’ve heard.

So if there is a powered docking place for the lantern, you could imagine there might be other after market accessories available that could use the same docking spot
