Aston Martin One-77 Gets Bang & Olufsen Bespoke Sound System

An exclusive super sports car such as the Aston Martin One-77 could only pack the best of the best features, and the same thing applies to the vehicle's sound system. It looks like all the 77 units of the model will be fitted with a Bang & Olufsen bespoke system that uses an innovative way of subwoofer and woofer integration.

Specifically, in order to save weight and gain optimal structural rigidity, the subwoofer and woofer loudspeaker boxes have been completely integrated into the car's advanced carbon fibre body structure.

“Milled from solid blocks of aluminium by the Bang & Olufsen prototype department, the grilles covering the Neodymium loudspeakers feature a design and construction that guarantees lightweight, maximum acoustic transparency and a visual design that is in line with the One-77's unique and sporty interior design,” the Danish company explains.

Furthermore, motors raise the turned and anodized aluminium tweeters from the instrument panel as the sound system is turned on.

The total power of the system is more than 1.000 watts, and the amplified power for the woofers and midranges comes from Bang & Olufsen's proprietary ICEpower technology, delivering 750 watts of undistorted sound, which complements the V12 engine's output power of 750 horsepower and torque of 750 Nm.

The system also comes with a DSP (Digital Signal Processing) Amplifier, that includes True-Image (a proprietary Bang & Olufsen up-mix algorithm for stereo and 5.1 multichannel material) and volume levelling dependant on noise, speed and climate control setting.

"In effect, what we have done is actually to produce 77 car sound systems with the same processes and meticulous attention to detail, as if we should do a one-off concept car for a motor show," says Bjarne Sorensen, Director of Concept and Technology at Bang & Olufsen Automotive.
