Bang & Olufsen BMW 6 Series Sound System


Bang & Olufsen announced the fall 2011 arrival of the BMW 6 Series Convertible (as well as the previously announced BMW 6 Series Coupe) with the new Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound System.  In March 2011, the two brands first announced its collaboration surrounding the BMW 6 Series Coupe, which would be the first BMW car model to feature the Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system. Today, the two brands are enthusiastic to report yet another model car will feature the custom built, high performance sound system from Bang & Olufsen, of which both model cars with the B&O system upgrade option will arrive in US BMW showrooms this fall 2011.

With 12 active loudspeakers driven by 1,000 watts of power, the Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system for the BMW 6 Series Convertible has all the power it needs to deliver rich, convincing sound. Each of the five tweeters is paired with a mid-range loudspeaker to deliver a homogeneous loudspeaker set-up, while the two potent subwoofers located under the front seats are directly mounted to the body of the car. This BMW-patented design eliminates vibrations from the subwoofers to produce an even cleaner sound performance.

The patented Bang & Olufsen Acoustic Lens Technology also plays its part, distributing sound horizontally with 180 degrees of dispersion to give the best possible acoustic experience from anywhere in front of the speaker. On closer inspection, the acoustic lens cover reveals an additional mid-range loudspeaker that delivers perfectly balanced sound throughout the cabin.

Under the skin, the all new system also incorporates Dynamic Sound Optimization, which uses sound data gathered from a microphone mounted in the cabin to constantly adjust the sound according to conditions outside the car, such as rain and changing road surfaces.

For the BMW 6 Series Convertible, an additional sensor automatically instructs the Digital Signal Processor (DSP) of the sound system to adapt the sound performance to suit the altered ambient cabin conditions, whenever the soft top is raised or lowered.

In addition, two distinct sound modes integrated into the all new system create two quite different sound experiences. Studio Mode produces a wonderfully vibrant sound stage that reproduces sound as the artist intended, while the new Expanded Mode widens the sound stage to give passengers the impression that they are in a much larger space.

The BMW 6 Series Coupe will first arrive in October 2011 in BMW showrooms across the country, followed by a late fall arrival for the BMW 6 Series Convertible with the B&O high-end Surround Sound system option.
