Mercedes-Benz CLS Harman Kardon Sound System

Audio and infotainment systems manufacturer Harman has prepared a new surround sound system for the Mercedes-Benz CLS, specifically tailored for the interior of the four-seat coupe. The Logic 7 system creating a 360-degree sound in every seat features the Harman Kardon logo on the tweeters in the triangular panels next to the wing mirrors signal.

The acoustic specialists at Harman have fitted 14 high-performance speakers to create a three-dimensional ambient sound. The 450 watt high-performance amplifier is equipped with a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) which controls each speaker separately.

An additional 160 watt bass amplifier drives the double voice coil subwoofer, creating powerful bass impulses. The speed-dependent volume control (SVC) ensures that the sound heard by the listener remains the same, thanks to the continuous adaptation of the volume to the vehicle speed.

“The result is a perfect spatial sound experience for every passenger, wherever they are seated, whatever the speed,” Harman brags.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS sold in European markets is available with the Audio 50 APS navigation system as an option, which was also specially developed by HARMAN for Mercedes-Benz. A key feature of the infotainment system is the generously proportioned 5.8 inch TFT color monitor (14.7 cm) in 16:9 format. The DVD navigation system contains data for 32 European countries.

“Our sound system for the new CLS marks another high point in our longstanding partnership with Daimler, which stretches back over more than 60 years,”
stated Dinesh C. Paliwal, Chairman, President and CEO of Harman. "We are very proud to emphasize the refined sportiness of the new CLS with our high-end sound system."
