Driving a Maserati is an emotional experience, with every piece of technology and every trim detail designed to connect on a human level. The same can be said of the Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system. This optional audio package is the product of 50 years of Bowers & Wilkins’ countless hours of testing and even extensive research in the field of psychoacoustics – the science of how people react emotionally to sound. 15 speakers, with mid-range drivers and rear-woofers made from aramid fibre, have been strategically built into the car’s architecture, while a 1,280-watt amplifier ensures immersive sound for all on board. Advanced aluminium tweeters capture the faintest audio subtleties, while a rock-solid bass is guaranteed by Rohacell® in the system’s bass drivers – Rohacell® being a stiff, highly resilient material often used in the construction of rockets and aircraft. The system features QuantumLogic™® Surround Sound Technology, which digitally remodels signal streams and reconstructs the original recording of a musical piece, creating a concert hall experience in the car. Along with this, the Clari-Fi™ function automatically restores detail lost in digitally compressed music, and removes distortions caused by the process in real time. The Bowers & Wilkins system is compatible with most disc formats and features a built-in USB connector for a smartphone, iPod or MP3 player. Alternatively, tracks can be streamed directly either via Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto®.
