62-speaker car audio system

    Together with scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute and experts at Bang & Olufsen, Audi engineers created a prototype of the car audio system of the future , which in terms of sound quality will not be inferior to the most expensive home theater. In the prototype based on the Audi Q7 SUV, the speakers were installed around the entire perimeter of the car, creating an “intelligent” sound space where the sound is rendered using WFS ( Wave field synthesis ) technology .

    These delights are needed so that the sound quality is ideal for each passenger.

    The 32-channel system includes 62 speakers, including 5 high-frequency, 52 mid-frequency, 4 low-frequency and one 12-inch subwoofer.

    When WFS appears in production cars is hard to imagine. Probably never. Judge for yourselves: equipping the Audi Sound Concept cost 10 million euros, and auxiliary equipment, computers, amplifiers and wires take up all the space in the trunk.
