CLS-CLASS | CLS 63 AMG
Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG High-End Surround Sound System
Iconic Sound and Design
Bang & Olufsen’s distinctive Danish design and renowned sound reproduction have once again been merged together to create a masterpiece of sound and design for the design icon of Mercedes: the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG for the CLS. The system’s exclusive design language is the perfect complement to the car’s flowing interior design.
Designed by acclaimed Bang & Olufsen designer David Lewis, the flowing lines of the loudspeaker grilles combined with the exclusive aluminium finish and sophisticated, yet understated elegance of the design produce a system that is as enjoyable to look at as it is to listen to.
The Finest Details
Bang & Olufsen’s reputation for attention to detail, superb craftsmanship and commitment to the highest quality is in the details. Each hole in the solid aluminium loudspeaker grilles has been meticulously drilled, given an anodised finish to withstand the years, and then laser engraved with the Bang & Olufsen logo to create a stylish and refined look.
The two small acoustic lens mounted on the inside bracket of each wing mirror is another detail you won’t be able to miss. When the system is activated, integrated LED lighting slowly illuminates, shifting seamlessly between day and night modes depending on the lighting conditions of the car upon activation. Controlled by a light sensor located under the rear-view mirror, the LED lighting provides a visually pleasing accompaniment to the system’s impressive sound.
A Masterpiece of Performance
The phenomenal performance of the CLS demands an in-car sound system that is equally impressive. Bang & Olufsen has equipped the system with 14 fully active loudspeakers, 1200 watts of ICEpower-driven technology and hundreds of hours of dedicated sound tuning by a team of Bang & Olufsen sound engineers. This dedication to top-notch performance translates into a system that reproduces sound the way the musician intended, without any modification and crystal-clear sound that is as flawless and precise as possible. Driving your new CLS will be like taking a seat in a concert hall for a personal concert with your favourite artist.
Your listening experience will remain constant despite changes in outside conditions, like rain, hanging road surfaces, or changing speed, through a very handy technology called Vehicle Noise Compensation (VNC), which gathers data from cabin-mounted microphones and constantly adjusts the sound based on exterior noise. To further improve your sound experience, the system has front, rear, and full-vehicle sound modes and a “True Image” menu that allows for a “reference” soundstage that is similar to a recording studio or a surround setting that resembles a live concert.
Bang & Olufsen’s Acoustic Lens Technology (ALT) ensures that this crisp and powerful sound is enjoyed from every seat in the vehicle with 180-degrees of horizontal sound dispersion and an improved sense of space, staging and realism. By rounding the shape of the upper corners of the acoustic lenses, Bang & Olufsen sound engineers have been able to equalise the sound produced by the acoustic lens towards the centre of the car. This makes for a system that isn’t just designed with the ears in mind, but also with the eyes and heart.
