So I happened across this support article that describes a change Rivian implemented in Feb 2023 on new vehicles but I haven't seen any other information posted about this anywhere on the forums.
https://rivian.com/support/article/...about-rivian-s-in-house-designed-audio-systemWhat can you tell me about Rivian's in-house designed audio system?
Our in-house designed Rivian Elevation audio allows the R1T and R1S to use a common 1200 Watt, 18-channel amplifier. On both models, we've removed the rear passenger door midrange speakers, shifting this work across a tweeter and woofer for seamless frequency transitions.
The new Rivian Elevation audio system is lighter, more efficient and uses less rare-earth metals. Our testing has shown that listeners prefer the Rivian Elevation audio experience, and this update allows us to more easily tune our audio system based on owner feedback moving forward.
Production of vehicles with this audio system begin February 2023.
