Like BMW 6 Series and 7 Series and the new BMW X5 has got a Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound. It is the first-ever BMW SUV to be fitted with the unique Bang & Olufsen sound and the first BMW model with Bang & Olufsen sound to be produced in the USA.
New sound system comes with sixteen active loudspeakers powered by a 1,200-watt amplifier which provide a rich, layered and authentic sound.
Each of the seven tweeters is twinned with a mid-range loudspeaker for a homogenous sound experience. BMW’s subwoofer under each of the front seats eliminates unwanted vibration and ensures a powerful, clean reproduction of the bass. Microphone is used to constantly adjust the sound according to changing conditions inside and outside the car, from engine noise and air conditioning to poor road surfaces and extreme weather conditions.
There are two alternative sound modes. Studio mode is for a vivid sound and Expanded is mode who widens the sound and give the impression that the loudspeakers are located outside the car.
New and unique design elements of the Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system for the BMW X5 include round, solid aluminum grilles with Perlglanz colour. The unique Bang & Olufsen Orchestration, with the loudspeaker cover rising silently from the centre of the dashboard to reveal the large acoustic lens as the LED lights simultaneously illuminate, lends a touch of magic to the whole sensory experience.
