BMW has struck a deal with Bang & Olufsen to include their high end speaker system in their cars.

New BMWs Come With Sixteen Bang & Olufsen Speakers

Driving can be fun in any car as long as the sun is shining, the windows are down and the music is grand. If doing just that in an everyday Corolla is a treat, then cruising in high end BMWs with music oozing from a 16 speaker Bang & Olufsen system is going to be downright exhilarating.

It borders too much fun.

BMW 6 Series...yep, with four doors

These 16 speakers pump 1,200 watts of harmonious music; unless you have the six series convertible. Unfortunately they'll have to settle for just 12 speakers and a thousand watts—how will they go on?

More grills than Nelly

The speakers have been strategically placed to have "treble, mid-range and bass tones assume their exact positions," and that necessitates an automatically retracting centre speaker equipped with an acoustic lens. It's this lens that determines 'brilliant' surround sound in all seats.


Bang and Olufsen practise polygamy in the car industry, kitting out brands Mercedes, Audi and even Aston Martin with their premium audio.
