Hyundai Europe recently revealed that the all-new i20 will be expected to feature a Bose Premium Sound System. This new sound system is collaboratively engineered by engineers from Hyundai and Bose that features an eight-speaker system for an exceptional listening experience for everyone inside the new i20.
In the past 40 years, Bose has been developing automotive sound systems that replicate music as close as possible to the way the artist originally intended. And now, Hyundai owners are able to experience the engineering prowess starting in Europe with the all-new i20.
Bose premium sound quality in Hyundai
The new Bose system in Hyundai will be featuring eight high-performance speakers, combined with advanced digital signal processing, the Bose system in the i20 has been engineered to produce remarkable music and sound under different driving conditions.
Each speaker is designed to reproduce a specific set of low, mid-range, or high frequencies so that all of the components work in harmony to create a rich and vibrant listening experience.
For the front doors, a Super65 speaker will have deep impactful low-frequency performance. The Super65 speakers play lower and louder than conventional 6.5-inch (165mm) speakers and combine with a 5.25-inch (130mm) neodymium woofer inside a custom-engineered enclosure mounted inside the i20’s rear-left quarter panel to deliver rich bass throughout the cabin.
Clear and balanced sound reproduction is delivered by a 3.25-inch (80mm) neodymium mid-range Bose Twiddler speaker in the centre of the instrument panel and two 5.25-inch (130mm) wide-range speakers – one in each rear door. Higher frequencies are delivered through two 1-inch (25mm) neodymium tweeters – one in each quadrant cover.
The system is driven by a Bose digital amplifier with eight channels of custom equalisation. In addition, the system is equipped with dynamic speed compensation technology, which monitors vehicle speed and automatically adjusts music levels, ensuring a more consistent listening experience and reducing the need for drivers to make manual adjustments while on the road.
