Speakerless, immersive 3D audio software upgrading in-car sound

To achieve premium sound in vehicles, conventional high-end audio systems often require between 10 and 20 or even more speakers. These systems usually weigh up to 40 kilograms and have a total installation volume of 10 to 30 litres. Modern vehicle architecture requires ever more efficient, lighter and space-saving solutions for a better user experience.

A global automotive technology company and world-leading audio specialists are revolutionising the in-car audio experience. Continental’s speakerless sound solution combined with Sennheiser’s immersive 3D audio software offers a premium automotive sound systems that are second to none.

Continental’s Ac2ated Sound is inspired by the operation of stringed instruments and replaces conventional loudspeakers with “invisible” actuators that vibrate surfaces in the vehicle and create a natural sound. These innovative actuators are significantly lighter in weight and much smaller than conventional loudspeakers, contributing to lower CO2 emissions for future vehicles worldwide.

These actuators can also be placed in areas where it is difficult to fit conventional speakers such as in the headliner or the headrest, which is essential for creating sound zones for an enhanced experience.

Sennheiser AMBEO Mobility is a software suite of immersive audio solutions, developed to deliver the best possible in-car entertainment and communication experience. Designed to immerse in an incredibly lifelike, clear and detailed 3D soundscape, driver and passengers can enjoy their in-car audio experience to the fullest thanks to enveloping sound, individual sound zones, noise management and meeting room quality communication.

With this partnership, Continental and Sennheiser have created an in-car speakerless, premium sound system that is a real game-changer.
