Paris: Mercedes CLS features Harman Kardon sound system

At the Paris Motor Show, HARMAN has unveiled a surround sound system for the Mercedes-Benz CLS, specifically tailored for the interior of the four-seat coupe.

The acoustic specialists at Harman have fitted 14 high-performance speakers to create a three-dimensional ambient sound.

The 450 watt high-performance amplifier is equipped with a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) which controls each speaker separately.

An additional 160 watt bass amplifier drives the double voice coil subwoofer, creating powerful bass impulses.

The speed-dependent volume control (SVC) ensures that the sound heard by the listener remains the same, thanks to the continuous adaptation of the volume to the vehicle speed.
