For 2019, BMW X5 customers can choose the optional Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System with 20 speakers and 1,500-watt output. This magnificent audiophile-grade experience is further enhanced by the sonic transparency and the stunning design of our Oakwood Lux stainless steel grilles. Additionally, light engines behind these grilles deliver a dramatic visual component to the package.
The unique Lux grille hole patterns are inspired by the celebrated Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus speaker, where spiraling diffusion channels soak up reflected sound from the rear of each drive unit, reducing resonance to a minimum. But, ultimately…those who have the good fortune to own or listen to this B&W system must simply turn the volume knob to appreciate the hundreds of hours of expert tuning that goes into the integration and positioning of the transducers for the best sound experience possible.
