Bang & Olufsen’s high-end in-car entertainment line-up, in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz, continues for 2013 with the announcement of new sound systems for both the CLS-Class and E-Class models from the German automotive manufacturer.
The Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG High-End Sound System for the CLS-Class features Bang & Olufsen’s signature design, and has all the power and uncompromising sound performance of previous BeoSound AMG Sound Systems. The new system will be available with all engine models across the AMG and Mercedes-Benz line-up.
“The Mercedes-Benz CLS is the perfect connection between Mercedes-Benz and Bang & Olufsen as it stands for an outstanding design and perfect technology, the same like Bang & Olufsen. This was a big motivation for our designers and sound engineers to create another unique masterpiece of incar sound systems” stated Jens Peter Zinck, Managing Director of Bang & Olufsen Automotive.
The power and finesse of the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG for the CLS-Class is just as impressive as its distinctive design. With 14 fully active loudspeakers, 1200 watts of ICEpower-driven technology and hundreds of hours of dedicated sound tuning by a team of Bang & Olufsen sound engineers, the system reproduces sound the way the musician intended, without any modification. The result is crystal-clear sound that is as flawless and precise as possible, allowing for hours of enjoyable listening without fatigue.
The Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG for the E-Class has a power and finesse to match the sportiness and business-class comfort of the E-Class. With 14 fully active loudspeakers and 1200 watts, also coming from the Bang & Olufsen patented ICEpower amplifier technology; the system has enough power to create a realistic and clear sound that matches that of a cinema or live concert. This power has been finely tuned by a team of Bang & Olufsen sound engineers, who spent hundreds of hours tweaking the system to create the perfect sound for every position in the car.
Placing loudspeakers in the ideal positions within the limitations of a car’s interior is not always possible, which is why Bang & Olufsen’s proprietary technology, Acoustic Lens Technology (ALT), plays such an important role in the system’s superb sound reproduction. Located on the inside bracket of each wing mirror, the system’s two Acoustic Lenses are able to disperse sound horizontally across 180-degrees, improving the overall sense of space and realism regardless of a passenger’s position in the car.
