The Harman Kardon high-performance DSP amplifier in Class D technology, integrated in the MINI Roadster, provides its two passengers with an outstanding and richly detailed sound by ten speakers that are ideally positioned in the car and specifically adjusted for the double-seater. Four 26 mm metal-matrix tweeters with metal matrix diaphragms are positioned in the front and rear, showing a complex sandwich structure with an aluminum core and a ceramic surface. Two 100 mm ALumaprene midrange speakers, whose specially developed membranes and magnet systems create major sound dynamics and smoothly balanced frequency response, are installed in the front door panels. Two 150 mm woofers in the front and two 150 mm x 230 mm midwoofers in the rear give the car a resonant and complex bass tone.
The superior sound pressure level (SPL) of the 480 watts Harman Kardon DSP amplifier in Class D technology fulfills the desire for fun, which simply belongs to the MINI Roadster.
Dinesh Paliwal, Chairman, President and CEO of HARMAN, comments on the extension of the cooperation: “MINI is a small but amazing car, which we were able to develop well-adapted sound systems for. It enriches the range of our automotive partners and we are glad about the further collaboration.”
