With the new Mercedes-AMG GT the sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz aims to set new standards in a highly competitive segment, and here again their motto is: the best or nothing. For this reason the Mercedes-AMG GT offers even two optional Burmester Surround Systems to pick from – and thus for the first time Burmester sound in an AMG.
For the Burmester High-End Surround-Soundsystem the typical, warm and substantial sound is provided by a 1,000 watt amplifier which drives a total of 11 loudspeakers. The tweeters with their circular diaphragms excel by a delicate reproduction of the highs. Midrange drivers with a proven custom fiberglass cone from the home sector and acoustic fleece pads placed between the midrange chassis and the doors ensure a precise stage imaging. To create optimal conditions for the woofers in the extremely rigid aluminum frame structure of the car body, the frames are specially sealed to get clearly defined volumes, as they are also known from home audio speaker cabinets. An extra tweeter in the dashboard guarantees speech intelligibility and a realistic room depth on a high-end level. Special designed surround speakers in the side panels behind the seats and a custom subwoofer with a proprietary current-saving digital 400 watts power amplifier for ultra-deep lows make the system complete.
Using multiple setting options both the driver and the passenger can adjust the sound precisely to their personal needs and preferences.
Special presets can be selected for a personal sound tuning. For a sound optimization for one single seat the VIP function can be activated, resulting in an enhanced sound staging and a pinpoint visual spectrum of sounds.
For the Burmester surround sound system an amplifier with 640 watts of overall output power drives ten actively controlled speakers. Heavy-duty tweeters in the dashboard, midrange speakers mounted in the doors and woofers in the aluminum frame structure of the car body are used. With the switchable surround mode activated or when true multi-channel recordings are played back, the additional surround speakers in the rear side panels and a special center speaker in the dashboard produce a stunning surround sound experience. On top, owing to its 240 watts, a tail-mounted subwoofer delivers a lush low-end fundament as extra support.
