The Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design that we recently tested (read the full review here) came equipped with the top-level Bowers & Wilkins audio system. It’s a $3200 option, but if you’re into good music, we think it’s worth every penny. It has 19 speakers and 1400 watts of power including an open-air sub-woofer. It’s truly a system you should experience for yourself.
However, since we know that’s not possible for everyone, we’ve done our best to recreate the experience here. Using high-quality in-ear binaural microphones and uncompressed WAV audio files, we’ve created this video to demonstrate the power of the Volvo’s system. Be sure to use headphones to get the best experience! It’s a shame that this Bower’s & Wilkins system isn’t available in every car, but it does help differentiate the XC90 as a special car.
