Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system

High-end sound meets high-end technology

The Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system for the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe continues the productive partnership between the two premium-sector manufacturers. Read on to find out why Bang & Olufsen’s latest surround system is the perfect fit.

The sound system also uses advanced technology to help you get the most from the generous power available. One such technology is Dynamic Sound Optimisation, which uses a microphone mounted in the cabin to automatically adjust the volume level depending on external noise generated by wind, rain, changing road surfaces, etc.

The distinctive design of the Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system for the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is a perfect fit for its superlative sound. With a clean, yet edgy style, the design of the sound system is seamlessly integrated into the BMW interior design. The sound system features a range of impressive design features that discerning consumers have come to expect, such as the Floating Frame solid aluminium grilles.


Special mountings separate grille from frame to create the illusion that the grille is floating in mid-air. What’s more, the open space between grille and frame is used to produce one of the more dramatic features of the design: When the system is activated, small LEDs hidden inside the frames light up to highlight the loudspeakers – an effect you must experience for yourself!
Perhaps the most impressive demonstration of light and sound occurs when the system is activated. When this happens, a loudspeaker grille in the centre of the dashboard silently lifts to reveal the large acoustic lens, while the concealed LED lights switch on in perfect harmony – we call this Orchestration.

A Bang & Olufsen patented technology, Acoustic Lens Technology distributes sound horizontally with 180º of dispersion to give the best possible acoustic experience from anywhere in front of the speaker. Below the grille, an additional mid-range loudspeaker delivers perfectly balanced sound throughout the cabin.
