Details of the new 3D Sound system from Sony on the upcoming XUV700 have surfaced online, ahead of its debut on August 14
In just a few hours, we will be able to get a sneak peek of the new Mahindra XUV700 in metal. Ahead of its debut, the carmaker has been aggressively promoting its upcoming product by highlighting many class-leading features of XUV700 in a series of teaser videos. Mahindra has left no stone unturned as far as marketing is concerned since a lot rides on XUV700.
One of the latest features that have come to light is a premium 3D audio system from Sony. The system features 12 custom-built speakers – including a subwoofer along with a 445W 13-channel amplifier positioned around the cabin. The stereo offers multiple audio modes such as Immersive 3D, Stage, Party, and Breezy.
More Details of 3D Sound System
Audio from different sources like Bluetooth, USB, online media and Radio would be able to stream 3D music in this system. Speakers are expected to be positioned in generic locations such as door pads, dashboard and boot but spy shots have revealed that some of them might even be offered on the ceiling like the second-gen Thar.
Sony has stated that the system comes with DSEE technology which helps in enhancing the sound quality of compressed audio files. Another notable feature of this system is a speed-dependent equaliser control accompanied by speed-dependent volume.
This provides occupants with optimal volume and tonal balance at a particular speed of the vehicle in order to minimise the influence of outside noises. The company claims that this stereo system will offer a “highly realistic 3D immersive spatial sound field”.
