The Sound of Individuality

Perfection and solidity in perfect union – the premium Harman Kardon® audio system in the Mercedes-Benz® G-Class guarantees an unparalleled surround sound experience even on uncompromising journeys across rough terrain. Components that have been carefully matched were set up during development to withstand extreme loads well in excess of the normal service range and guarantee compelling performance at all times. In demanding trials and tough test drives on rough terrain, materials and technologies have been relentlessly put through their paces.

Discrete Logic 7® Technology Delivers Stunning Surround Sound

The multi-channel DSP main amplifier in the G-Class brings 450 watts to the table, guaranteeing a refined and dynamic sound experience. The G-Class is also equipped with 12 premium sound transducers that have been optimally integrated into the vehicle interior. The basis for the compelling spatial sound experience is the groundbreaking discrete

Logic 7 technology, which delivers high-fidelity surround sound pleasure from stereo and 5.1 recordings at every seat. In the reproduction of 5.1 surround sound recordings without discrete Logic 7 technology, there would be only one ‘sweet spot’ in the vehicle, i.e. one single place with the optimum sound, which would be located exactly where nobody would care to sit – in the area around the center console. Thanks to discrete Logic 7 technology, surround information is distributed with the quality of the original recording via the SUV’s speakers to create a ‘sweet spot’ for every passenger in every seat.

The dashboard houses a robust 80 mm center speaker with a glass-fiber membrane that can withstand extensive fluctuations in temperature and humidity, and that is capable of handling all manner of demanding off-road conditions. Two 43 mm silk dome tweeters in the doors at the base of the exterior mirrors deliver a spatial sound and distinct positioning of instruments and voices. Four 165 mm glass-fiber, midrange speakers in the four doors define the midrange and bass tones, supported by a 165 mm ALumaprene double voice-coil subwoofer beneath the rear bench for clean bass beats. 43 mm silk dome tweeters are installed in the rear doors for the benefit of rear-seat passengers. Two 80 mm ALumaprene surround sound speakers with robust, but extremely precise polymer membranes are positioned at the back in the D-pillars for optimum spatial sound, transmitting effectively over cargo in the luggage compartment.

The Harman Kardon high-performance DSP amplifier with 450 watts of total output is located beneath the driver’s seat and guarantees a compelling sound experience for individualists – be it on shopping trips or adventurous journeys.
