BMW 5 SERIES GRAN TURISMO

Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system

Unmatched Power

The Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system for the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo is the result of months of sound tuning and decades of experience by Bang & Olufsen’s acoustic engineers working in close partnership with BMW engineers.

Sound tuning for each of the BMW models, was undertaken by Bang & Olufsen sound engineers to ensure that the unique contours of each variant’s interior were taken into consideration – the result is optimal sound performance across all variants.

With 16 active loudspeakers driven by 1,200 watts of power, the Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system for BMW 5 Series vehicles delivers a rich and authentic sound. Each of the seven tweeters is paired with a mid-range loudspeaker to deliver a highly balanced sound experience, and two potent subwoofers located under the front seats ensure a powerful bass sound throughout the vehicle. These subwoofers are mounted directly onto a rigid area of the car’s body, thus eliminating vibrations and creating a very clean sound at all volume levels.


The Bang & Olufsen patented Acoustic Lens Technology also distributes sound horizontally with 180º of dispersion left to right. On closer inspection, the acoustic lens cover also reveals an additional mid-range loudspeaker to deliver perfectly balanced sound throughout the cabin.

The look of your Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system will match the pristine quality of its sound.
The clean lines of the aluminium loudspeaker grilles match the design language of your BMW 5 Series interior. Unique design features include small tweeter grilles mounted on the inside of the wing mirrors of each front door and special mountings that separate grille from frame, giving the illusion that the grille is floating in mid-air.

The combination of light and sound is most impressive when you turn it on. In a process called Light Orchestration, a loudspeaker cover in the centre of the dashboard silently lifts to reveal the large acoustic lens while the embedded LED lights turn on simultaneously. When turned off, the acoustic lens closes seamlessly with the dashboard and further blends in to your vehicle’s design.
