Bowers & Wilkins
Exclusive car audio
A passion for sound
Faithful and exhilarating sound reproduction
The Bowers & Wilkins audio system gives a true high-fidelity experience, with top-end quality and the latest audio technology as the starting point. The system was developed in close collaboration with Bowers & Wilkins engineers and Volvo Cars’ own audio experts as an integral part of the cabin design with precisely positioned state-of-the-art loudspeakers.
Bowers & Wilkins represents the highest level of automotive audio quality currently available, delivering a full musical experience. A passion for technology, innovation and engineering, coupled with an intense attention to detail, is what makes Bowers & Wilkins so special. We offer the Bowers & Wilkins system in our 90 and 60 Series cars.
Our Bowers & Wilkins audio system is created to deliver the most realistic and immersive sound experience possible, bringing exceptional clarity and realism to your music – wherever you’re seated. This audio system goes beyond figures. Our sound engineers have searched obsessively for audiophile perfection. This means delivering a full musical experience and drawing the listener into what has been performed and recorded. It’s music you feel, both physically and emotionally, and that’s only possible with a sound experience capable of delivering True Sound. Three sound modes allow you to recreate the acoustics of a specific environment inside your Volvo, bringing you even closer to the music.

The numbers are impressive: one 12-channel amplifier, an astonishing 1400W output and up to 19 separate high-end speakers including two automotive innovations: a unique open-air sub-woofer and a tweeter-on-top centre speaker facing the occupants for a sound that’s detailed and true to life. The whole experience exudes quality and craftsmanship.
This high-class audio system is developed specifically for Volvo Cars with the hi-fi specialists at Harman Kardon. Powered by a multi-channel digital amplifier with up to 650 watts output, the 14 speakers are tailored to the acoustics inside your Volvo and deliver a powerful, captivating surround sound experience. A unique sound processing software – Dirac® Unison Tuning – optimises the response of each individual speaker as well as the combined output to ensure a performance of perfect harmony.
