HARMAN is expanding its cooperation with the BMW Group and equipping the new MINI Countryman with a high-performance Harman Kardon audio system.
HARMAN is the exclusive sound system supplier for all MINI models, including the John Cooper Works series.
The Sports Activity Vehicle is already the fourth model where MINI relies on the development expertise of HARMAN sound specialists.
Working together in close cooperation, MINI vehicle developers and Harman Kardon experts have perfectly matched the vehicle architecture for the sound system with the interior of the four-door crossover.
The precise acoustic tuning of the MINI Countryman is achieved by using AuraVox, HARMAN’s unique equalization software toolkit which enables creation of a virtual acoustical imprint of the car, followed by advanced analysis and tuning.
The Countryman is the first MINI to use the impressive central bass concept, including two powerful subwoofers under the driver and front passenger seats that provide solid bass lines and energizing beats from house music to rock ‘n’ roll.
Another special feature of the MINI Countryman is the powerful Harman Kardon 400 Watt DSP amplifier with Class-D technology.
