Volvo C40 Recharge | Technik News
“It sounds simply brilliant. No distortion at high volumes and even when the subwoofer is at 100 percent, nothing rattles in the car. As a total package, this sound experience definitely offers the well-known Harman Kardon sound.”

Volvo EX30 | Automotive Today
“Harman Automotive brings immersive sound to the new Volvo EX30.”
Volvo XC60, Stefan Ogbac – Motor Trend
“…a Harman Kardon audio system, which is crisp, clear…can easily turn your car into a concert hall.”
Volvo XC40, Zach Butler – Tflcar.com
“The subwoofer’s port is coupled outside the cabin, and the cabin itself is treated as a giant enclosure. Basically, that’s allowed Harman/Kardon to fit more powerful speakers in less space than a conventional unit, making for much better sound in a relatively small package”
Volvo S90, Stefan Schickedanz – LowBeats
“But the Harman Kardon loudspeakers offer for comparatively little money all the basics that count for conscious listening with a trained ear.”
