    Sales success: Bang & Olufsen Sound System in the Audi A8
    1,000 watts 3,000 times over

    The most sophisticated sound system in the Audi range has proven to be an unqualified success. In less than a year more than 3,000 A8 customers have chosen the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System. At the moment every fifth Audi A8 or S8 model is equipped with this system, which has an output of over 1,000 watts.

    With its total of fourteen active high-end speakers, Acoustic Lens Technology (developed by B&O) and powerful amplifier output, the Advanced Sound System ensures a perfect sound experience. Specially developed for the Audi A8 are the speaker grilles made from meticulously crafted anodised aluminium – the same material used to produce the body of this sporty luxury saloon.

    The sound system is music to the listeners’ eyes: because its design is seamlessly integrated into the sporty, luxurious ambience of the A8, adding its own styling features. When the system is activated, two lens tweeters are automatically extended from the dashboard. These ensure an extremely in-depth performance at every seat thanks to their precisely aligned horizontal transmission. Here the visual fascination of visible technology is combined with the acoustic brilliance of the award-winning Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System, which has been declared the benchmark in its class by the trade media.

    A sound system from the Danish high-end manufacturer is now available in a further Audi car – in the sporty top model, the Audi R8. Bang & Olufsen are already developing individual sound systems for installation in other model lines in the future.

  4. my intuition is faster than any computer, they are just repsonding to me <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
  5. That system is brilliant, I listened to it when I was at the Geneva motorshow this year, just great!
  6. I hope it's better than the lame Bose systems.
  7. the Bose system was ok, just too much vibration for my liking
  8. This is a $10,000.00 option right? Is it availible in the U.S. as well? I haven't been in any A8s with this stereo.
  9. that is awesome
  10. No highs and no lows... it must be Bose!

    I have the Bose in my S4... it's alright, but yah...
  11. I have a 4 speaker 80 watt sound system in my WRX TR. Sounds like a dusty boombox from the 80's. To hear the Bang & Olufsen system would give my ears an orgasm.
  12. A $10,000 option and you can't get a speaker bigger than 8 inches?

  13. is that rms watts or max watts and what ohms is it rated at. Then wed have a better idea of its power. also magnet weights and metals and even cone materials, voice coil configuration. inquiring minds want to know.
