Volume and tone adjusted automatically
Thanks to digital technology, the sound can be adapted to the driving situation. Not only the volume but also the tone settings are adjusted automatically in line with the car’s speed. The sound is also adjusted automatically when the car’s roof is up or down to ensure that the listener gets the same sound experience regardless of ambient conditions.
There is also scope for individual preferences. In the car’s personal settings menu it is possible to choose how much the sound should be adjusted according to vehicle speed. There are three levels to choose from: low, medium and high.
Dynaudio’s logotype on the dashboard
“A sound system of Premium Sound rating is indicated by the Dynaudio® logo on the dashboard,” says Patrik Widerstrand. “It is a sign that the car is equipped with the very best speakers.”
Dynaudio® is one of the world’s foremost developers and manufacturers of speaker systems, both for home use and professional studios. The company has received a whole series of awards for its products, which are developed according to extremely strict quality demands.
With the launch of the all new Volvo C70, co-operation between Volvo Cars and Dynaudio® has entered a new, more intense phase. The Premium Sound speakers in the C70 are of extremely high quality for a mass-produced car. In the doors there are well-proportioned three-way speakers. The bass drivers are 8" with powerful 3" voice coils that can withstand high output. Even the midrange drivers have powerful voice coils. The tweeters are made of fabric (silk dome tweeter), a Dynaudio® speciality that helps produce a cleaner sound. Each speaker has a passive crossover to produce a harmonious, total sound experience with the best possible bandwidth and dynamics.
Specially developed centre speakers on the dashboard interact with the door speakers to create a natural, homogeneous sound.
The rear side panels have combined bass/midrange drivers. Even these have powerful voice coils and the same type of tweeters as in the front doors.
To achieve even deeper, richer bass tones, the system can be complemented with dual 8" subwoofers, mounted in the wall behind the rear backrest. These have separate class D amplifiers, each producing 130 W.
“It is certainly no exaggeration to use the term concert hall quality for the sound reproduction in the all new Volvo C70,” says Patrik Widerstrand. “We can offer what is the best sound experience ever in a Volvo regardless of whether the roof is up or down.”
