Vanquish Volante

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Vanquish

With thirteen active speakers, a fine-tuned sound algorithm and more than 1000 watts of intelligent power, there is nothing standard about Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Vanquish. But then the new Aston Martin Vanquish, for which this audio system has been custom-designed as “standard equipment”, is not your average car.

Bang & Olufsen’s acoustic engineers started with the very latest array of their premium speaker units and ICEpower amplifiers. Then they put them through a rigorous workout to reduce weight and increase efficiency – both key parameters for a high-performance sports car such as the Vanquish. Among other things, this meant recasting the powerful amp in magnesium and developing a new “Intelligent Power Management” function that puts the amplifier into high-performance mode as required, while maintaining the system’s overall high efficiency and sound quality.

But the real work – and the practical magic – was only achieved after Bang & Olufsen’s team of audio engineers spent more than 400 hours fine-tuning the sound system on location in what must be one of the world’s most luxurious workplaces: the new Vanquish’s opulent interior.
