Bose to Introduce Latest Automotive Audio Advancements, Previewing Four New Categories of Bose Offerings, and Providing First-Listen to the Highly Anticipated 34-Speaker Bose® Panaray® Sound System in the 2016 Cadillac CT6 Sedan

Bose Corporation will introduce its latest automotive audio advancements, previewing four new categories of Bose offerings, and providing a first-listen to the highly anticipated 34-speaker Bose® Panaray® sound system in the 2016 Cadillac CT6 sedan. With new category debuts, concept cars on hand, and demonstrations of the jaw-dropping Panaray system, Bose will host manufacturers and invited drivers from around the world, sharing new innovation can hear and feel, new standards for quality and choices, and break-out industrial design. The Advanced Technology Series is reserved for high-end luxury cars, pushing the limits of what’s possible for car audio, delivering the levels of acoustic accuracy, and featuring stunning industrial design for components including speaker grilles and covers. The CT6 Panaray system has multiple speaker configurations and arrays built into 19 acoustically superior locations, combined with the most advanced Bose proprietary software and digital signal processing in the company’s history. And it reproduces music with unprecedented clarity, precision, and bass. Like Bose Panaray for Cadillac, future Advanced Technology Series systems will have a singular name and visual identity. Until now, a high-quality listening experience wasn’t available in every car category, notably entry-level vehicles. But that changes with the new Bose Small Vehicle Series. In cars typically used by one person, these systems can focus on the driver only. They can also be designed for optimal performance around both the driver and front-seat passenger, or for both front- and back-seat passengers. The Small Vehicle Series signature will be Bose Personal® headrest speakers and proprietary signal processing that deliver an individual, immersive experience with minimal system components. Production vehicles featuring the first Bose SmallVehicle system will arrive in 2017 model year cars, but attendees at the Bose Automotive Experience will get an early preview in an energized concept car demonstration. For performance cars, there’s the Bose Performance Series. These systems earn their billing by meeting stringent hardware, software and industrial design requirements that are specific to premier sport and luxury car makers and owners. The first Performance Series system will arrive later this year in a new vehicle introduction. To experience the difference now, a concept car will be on-hand to test and touch. Bose invented factory-installed premium audio for the automotive industry, there are more cars on the road with a Bose Premium Series sound system than any other manufacturer. Bose Premium systems are loved by drivers, with top satisfaction ratings spanning decades in vehicles from General Motors, Nissan, Mazda, and other global car makers. It remains at the heart of the Bose product lineup.
