Bang & Olufsen Automotive offer high-end car manufacturers the following services
Bang & Olufsen Automotive, acquired by HARMAN in May 2015, offers its partners car audio systems with unprecedented sound quality and listening pleasure for the driver and passengers.
In addition to traditional craft skills within manufacturing and aluminium finishing, the systems incorporate the radical synthesis of emotional appeal and technological performance that has long been the hallmark of Bang & Olufsen Automotive.
Bang & Olufsen Automotive launched its first car audio system in 2005, and will continue to innovate and refine together with its partners within the automotive industry.
Redefinition of sound systems for cars
The ambition was – like any other Bang & Olufsen ambition - based on Bang & Olufsen’s vision: ‘Courage to constantly questioning the ordinary in search for surprising and lasting experiences’.
Our starting point was that despite the fact that most car passengers use hours on the road listening to their favourite music, the quality and performance of available car audio systems had not at all followed the rapid development of the quality and performance of the car itself.
With the launch of the first Bang & Olufsen sound system for a car, the Audi top-of-the line A8 in 2005, Bang & Olufsen redefined the segment for car-audio, by increasing the joy of ownership and use of the sound system.
INCREASED JOY FOR THE PASSENGERS
The first impression of a car is the one you get from watching the car from the outside. The same is true for our sound systems. Elegant details in the parcel shelf, instrument panel and doors are visible from the outside and underline the performance that could be expected from the sound system.
These expectations are met when the music is turned on, amplified by powerful, multichannel amplifiers and reproduced by numerous loudspeaker units integrated into the car. The sound has been made perfect for the passengers by Bang & Olufsens’ ‘tonmeisters’ who during the development phase have spent months in the car adjusting each and every speaker in the car to give a music reproduction as close as possible to the artists’ intention, with virtually no colouring or distortion. Different options for settings ensure that no matter the number of passengers in the car, the music stage is in front of each passenger – just like in a real concert.
Car audio competences
Currently more than 100 engineers at Bang & Olufsen work within the field of acoustics, and Bang & Olufsen holds numerous patents and is a very active player and contributor in international societies for acoustic technologies and perception. Most of our acoustic technologies are highly relevant for the use in cars.
Modern cars are packed with equipment and components that fight for space and should not add unnecessary weight to the car. In this context Bang & Olufsen’s tradition for making compact speakers and our highly efficient and compact amplifier technology, ICEpower, comes handy in place. The extremely low power consumption of ICEpower is also welcomed in car manufacturer’s efforts to reduce fuel-consumption.
The Acoustic Lens Technology (ALT), another patented Bang & Olufsen technology, is the genius solution to the challenge, that in a car nobody sits in the middle between left and right speakers (the ‘sweet spot’): The ALT elegantly ensures that timbre is correct whether you sit left or right.
Advanced Digital Signal Processing is used to compensate for the fact that in cars neither the speakers or the listeners are placed in optimum positions. Bang & Olufsen’s patented algorithms (under the trademark TrueImageTM, and making defined delays and equalising for each and every speaker) make sure that nevertheless the sound is distributed for perfect sound joy.
All these – and other Bang & Olufsen technologies – are combined and ‘soundtuned’ by Bang & Olufsen’s skilled ‘tonmeisters’ (the ‘chefs’ of sounddesign) to meet the expectations that are set by the visual appearance of our sound systems: Elegant design of the sound system, seamlessly integrated into the car and realised by the finest craftsmanship of exclusive materials make your eyes equally satisfied as your ears.
Car manufacturers who decide to offer their customers a Bang & Olufsen sound system obtain several advantages. By offering the best possible audio solution they enhance the buyers’ overall perception of the car which supports the car-brand’s position in the high end. Furthermore, a higher price point is made possible for the audio option, since Bang & Olufsen offers added value in performance and design. Finally, the cooperation with Bang & Olufsen opens up for numerous PR, marketing and event opportunities that help attract and retain customers.
