Audi A6 Gets Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System

The A6 became the eighth Audi model to feature a Bang & Olufsen in-car audio system, as the new Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System Audi A6 has just been announced. Inspired from Audi's A7 Sportback and A8 models, the new Advanced Sound System Audi A6 adopts the same organic petal-and-leaf loudspeaker grille design.

Featuring the largest front door grilles ever produced by Bang & Olufsen, the polished and anodised aluminium grilles in the A6 model are finished in a metal-look platinum color.

When you activate the system, two acoustic lenses rise silently from the dashboard in line with the windshield. There are 1,330 watts of power delivered to no less then 15 high-end loudspeakers by the ICEpower amplifier.

Moreover, the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System Audi A6 also features a Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The unit controls equalisation, audio mixing and the various sound modes, such as the exclusive Movie Mode.

Using Bang & Olufsen’s patented True Mix Algorithm, DSP transforms 5.1 channel surround sound from a video DVD into a cinematic experience using all 15 of the system’s high-end loudspeakers.

“The capabilities of the DSP are just one example of the effort that has gone into this latest Advanced Sound System. Bang & Olufsen sound engineers worked with Audi experts for over 300 hours, painstakingly fine-tuning the sound performance to match the unique acoustics of the Audi A6 interior,”
a company statement reads.

“The result is truly stunning. The Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System Audi A6 reproduces music exactly as the artist intended and delivers an unforgettable cinematic experience. It touches every sense to produce an emotional experience that you will never forget,” Bang&Olufsen says.
