The audio system is pre-calibrated for optimal sound reproduction, but can be adapted to your needs.

Setting for optimal sound reproduction

The audio system is pre-calibrated for optimum sound reproduction by means of digital signal processing.

This calibration takes into account loudspeakers, amplifiers, passenger compartment acoustics, listener position etc. for each combination of car model and audio system.

There is a also a dynamic calibration that takes into account the position of the volume control, radio reception and vehicle speed.

The controls explained in this owner's manual, e.g. Bass, Treble and Equalizer, are only intended for the user to be able to adapt the sound reproduction according to personal taste.

Active noise reduction

Applies to certain engines.

The car is equipped with an active noise reduction function that suppresses engine noise in the passenger compartment via the audio system. Microphones in the car's roof detect disruptive noise and the audio system sends out anti-noise in order to dampen the noise.

Microphones in the car

Microphones in the car's roof - location and quantity may vary depending on car model.

Note

Do not cover the car's microphone; otherwise a rumbling sound from the audio system may be produced.

Audio quality when streaming audio from the Internet

The amount of data transferred is dependent on the services or apps that are used in the car. For example streaming audio can require large amounts of data which requires a good connection and good signal strength. In some apps it is possible to set the audio quality. Selecting a high audio quality can increase loading time and cause breaks in the sound. In order to ensure a consistent sound experience it is recommended to select a lower audio quality.
