The Speed of Sound
A Sound Experience that Moves You
A Redefinition of Car Audio
A car is one of the most difficult environments in which to achieve pure sound. The noise from the road, the engine, the wind and the limited space all conspire to deaden what you hear.
That is why our sound engineers have dedicated themselves to the task of making sure that your ears are coated in rich, deep sound, whether you are cruising along a country road, flying down the Autobahn or standing still.
This ability to redefine car audio is based on decades of research and development in the field of acoustics and has given us a position as one of the leading manufacturers of loudspeakers in the world.
A Bang & Olufsen sound system will take your in-car sound experience to the next level.
What is recorded is what is heard
Our philosophy has always been to produce a pure, authentic sound that is as true and as distinct as the original source.
We believe in creating audio Equipment that precisely reproduces the timbre of the music, where the purity of each voice and each instrument strikes you to the very core. Every detail and the passion which brought the music to life should reveal itself to the listener and create a natural and coherent impression that inspires
Besides this, we believe that the quality of audio reproduction should never tire the listener. Its emphasis on accurate reproduction must never be allowed to dominate the music.
Acoustic Lens Technology
ICE: Intelligent, Compact & Efficient
The efficiency rate of our ICEpower amplification technology, present only in cars with Bang & Olufsen sound systems, is more than 90%. Conventional amplifiers convey on average only 30% of the power they receive to the speaker. ICEpower allows us to design compact amplifiers. Therefore only little energy is lost in heat, so more of it is used to drive the speakers.
This is why many of our sound systems have an output which is significantly greater than 1.000 watts and thus provide a more faithful sound reproduction. Less heat also implies less weight and all in all leading to lower power consumption.
Dynamic Sound Adjustment
“Our acousticians spend more than 400 hours perfecting the sound in every single loudspeaker.”
Effective design that pleases the eye and stirs the heart
The first impression of a car is the one you get from looking at it 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 you can expect from the sound system.
From a clean sheet of paper…
in a car, neither the speakers nor the listeners are in optimum positions. This is why the patented Bang & Olufsen TrueImage™ algorithm is at the heart of our Advanced Digital Signal Processing.
There is more to audio amplification on a vehicle than simply making sure that the sound is pure, crisp and clean.
