Top sound quality for the MINI Countryman

Exciting sounds for the countryside and city

Uniting powerful performance and exciting dynamism in a compact design: the high-performance Harman Kardon® audio system transforms the MINI Countryman into a great musical performer. This new classic model for use both on and off the road has ten optimally positioned loudspeakers and a 400-watt DSP amplifier in Class D technology, guaranteeing top sounds when on the move. The combination of loudspeakers is perfectly tailored to the interior of the MINI Countryman, impressively underlining the expertise of Harman Kardon's acoustic engineers: crystal-clear treble tones, impressive mid tones, and rich bass sounds offer driver and passengers an unforgettable sound experience in all MINI Countryman models, producing such a realistic sound that it feels like a live concert.

Powerful bass notes, brilliant trebles, exciting sound

Harman Kardon's new sound system contributes to the enormous fun factor provided by the MINI: Ten top-quality loudspeakers set the atmosphere in motion. The Countryman is the first MINI to use the impressive central bass concept: Two powerful low-range speakers measuring 217 mm in diameter, placed under the driver and front passenger seats, provide the basis for bass lines and pulsating house and jungle beats. In addition, the tweeters and mid-range speakers in the front of the car are actively controlled, also contributing to a balanced sound experience. A total of four metal-matrix diaphragms are positioned in the mirror triangles and in the rear door panels. The 26 mm tweeters produce crystal-clear treble tones for a faithful, top-class musical experience. Four 100 mm ALumaprene mid-range speakers in the side panels of the doors provide clean mid tones. ALumaprene diaphragms are characterized by greater dynamism and increased effectiveness in comparison with conventional loudspeakers. ALumaprene is a specially developed next generation polymer. The particularly lightweight modules have excellent damping characteristics, preventing resonances in the audible frequency range. This produces an unusually well-controlled frequency response, which can only be achieved with high-end sound transducers. The new diaphragm materials also ensure a careful balance between stiffness and weight. To ensure that the premium sound system, which is only available ex-works, continues to produce superior sound quality even after many years of use, the engineers test the components in advance in a series of stringent practical tests.

The powerful 400-watt DSP amplifier in Class D technology enables powerful audio levels and produces an enormously rich, detailed sound. Low bass pulses are faithfully passed on to the loudspeakers. Instruments are precisely positioned on the imaginary concert platform. The Class D amplifier operates with superior efficiency, radiates very little heat, dispensing with the need for additional cooling. The compact dimensions of 192 × 116 × 52 millimeters mean that it can be stowed behind the paneling in the trunk.
