Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System

A Winning Formula 

Taking inspiration from Audi’s A7 Sportback and A8 models, the new Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System in the Audi A6 adopts the same organic petal-and-leaf loudspeaker grille design. The exquisitely polished and anodized aluminum grilles in the A6 model are finished in a metal-look platinum color that evokes a sense of purposeful luxury befitting a premium business car.

Design Meets Technology at Every Turn

When you activate the system, two acoustic lenses rise silently from the dashboard in line with the windshield – a hallmark of Bang & Olufsen in-car advanced sound systems.
No detail of the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System has been compromised. For example, the woofers and midrange units installed in the front doors, which are enclosed within a single box to conserve space, feature independent air volumes that allow production of the same quality of sound performance from a Bang & Olufsen home audio product.

Controlled Power

More than 1,400 watts of power delivered effortlessly to the 15 high-end loudspeakers are provided primarily by the compact and highly efficient ICEpower amplifier, controlled by a Digital Signal Processor (DSP). This unit is the brains of the system and controls equalization, audio mixing and the various sound modes, such as the exclusive Movie Mode. Additional sound modes controlled by the DSP also let you customize your listening experience according to where you and your passengers are sitting in the car.

Using Bang & Olufsen’s patented True Image™ up-mix algorithm, DSP transforms 5.1 channel surround sound from a video DVD into a breathtaking cinematic experience.

Peerless Results

The capabilities of the DSP are just one example of the effort that has gone into this latest Advanced Sound System. Bang & Olufsen sound engineers worked with Audi experts for over 400 hours, painstakingly fine-tuning the sound performance to match the unique acoustics of the Audi A6 interior. It touches every sense to produce an emotional experience that you will never forget.
