Beginning at the latter part of 2007, Aston Martin and Bang & Olufsen have been collaborating to create some of the most outstanding and technologically advanced car audio systems the world has ever experienced.
At present, the two firms have combined forces once more to develop a new system for the DB9 of Aston Martin. The new system, which is dubbed the BeoSound DB9, brings the art of high-performance audio to a whole new level.
The new system focuses on aesthetics as much as it does on performance, elements around which Aston martin and Bang & Olufsen have built a strong reputation through constant innovation.
The new audio system comes with the proprietary ICEpower system that keeps high levels of fidelity even at high power and volume outputs while keeping the device compact in size. Depth and realism to audio quality is provided by the now-trademark motorized tweeters located at the dash which is intended to improve spatial perception of sound.
The system comes with a total of 11 speakers in addition to the two tweeters, one 200mm subwoofer, and the Bang & Olufsen DSP unit.
The DSP unit helps the audio system to adapt to external conditions of the car and improve sound in view of that. For instance, in the Volante model, the DSP unit adapts to whether the top of the car is up or down. Pricing for the BeoSound DB9 system is the same as that of an Aston Martin DB9.
Bang & Olufsen is not a newcomer in terms of design excellence and craft tradition. In fact, it has proven its expertise in such fields with the BeoSound DB9 system, which embodies the company's ability to translate its pioneering acoustic technologies into a functional and stylish design language.
Moreover, the BeoSound DB9 system also embodies Aston Martin's ethos of 'Power, Beauty and Soul,' becoming an integral part of the vehicle and creating an interior ambiance that exudes performance and design. Aston Martin boasts of having a great design heritage, as it was able to build some of the most beautiful sports cars in the world.
To endow its models with a blend of unassuming elegance and graceful styling, Aston Martin took effort in ensuring that its vehicles offer well-balanced proportions, a low stance, taut surfacing and painstaking attention to detail. Bang & Olufsen, meanwhile, is especially proud of its sound systems, which are built with a good blend of sophistication, beauty and craftsmanship as well as peerless audio quality.
Bang & Olufsen is known for its exceptional sound and picture quality, its elegance and design, as well as for its uses of real materials.
True enough, the new BeoSound DB9 – a bespoke audio system developed and designed exclusively as an optional feature for the Aston Martin DB9 -- personify the art shaping sound according to the contours of the interior of a true performance car, with a focus on overall experience and musicality.
