Rapide S

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Rapide

Every Aston Martin Rapide S is a unique statement. With the advent of the four door model, this vehicle combines performance with versatility, a landmark which calls for a sound system to match. The BeoSound Rapide is just that sound system. Optimised for all the passengers, including those in the rear seats, it has been tailor made to the interior design of the vehicle and performs the impossible by opening it out into a clear, precise soundscape, that would suit a vast concert auditorium. A landmark in the cooperation between two of the most well-respected makers in their particular field, this car has a sound system it deserves.

The BeoSound Rapide sound system comes with 15 active speakers and a total amplifier power of more than 1.000 W. All the speakers are mounted in closed cabinets to optimise the sound and provide absolute clarity and precision, and also to prevent the sound from escaping the car. The well-known Bang & Olufsen magic is provided by the two acoustic lenses which emerge automatically from the dashboard when the system is activated. The system is 100% integrated with the control unit in the car, and the system is able to detect how many passengers there are in the car and automatically adjust the sounds focus accordingly. The adjustment will happen when the seatbelts are plugged in at the different seats in the car. For such a versatile car as the Aston Martin Rapide this is a very convenient feature that offers a unique sound experience to all passengers at all times.
