Following on from their Jaguar XXR audio system, Bowers & Wilkins has unveiled the 14-speaker audio system fitted in the luxurious Jaguar XF.
Engineers from Jaguar and B&W worked in collaboration right from the car’s conception, performing extensive analysis and prototype testing to determine the ideal layout and locations for the speakers. Goal: to develop the best ever audio experience in a car.
B&W technologies included its patented woven-Kevlar diver material, the uniquely textured square-weave cones made from bulletproof material which eliminates standing waves in its midrange and bass drivers, and their metal-dome tweeter transducer.
