    Bose Introduces Its Most Powerful Performance Series Sound System in Next-Generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

    July 24, 2019 07:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time



    FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Bose announces its most powerful and highest performing sound system ever for a sports car with the debut of the Bose Performance Series system in the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette.

    Get ready to experience the @Bose Performance Series sound system in the 2020 @Chevrolet #Corvette Stingray. The all-new 14-speaker Bose Performance system in the 2020 Corvette Stingray sets a new standard for sports car sound with highly advanced signal processing and tuning that delivers the loudest — yet clearest — Bose audio experience ever in a two-seat coupe cabin. And it continues a tradition of collaboration between Bose and Chevrolet that began with the 1984 fourth-generation Corvette.

    “The new Corvette Stingray is phenomenal, and it delivers a special kind of experience that doesn’t happen very often. So, getting every detail just right is critically important — and that includes audio,” said Tobe Barksdale, chief audio engineer, Bose Automotive Systems. “The next-generation Corvette already delivers a thrilling soundtrack, courtesy of the engine. And when it comes to adding music to the mix, the custom-engineered Bose Performance Series system brings the moving emotion you’d expect in a legendary vehicle like this.”

    Engineering a World-Class Sound System
    Bose engineers worked closely with Chevrolet to develop the sound system during the most significant transformation in Corvette’s storied history, as it moves to a mid-engine design from the more conventional front-engine layout.

    Shifting the engine location changes the size and shape of the vehicle cabin compared to previous generations and impacts the way music and sound is heard inside the car. This presented new challenges to the Bose system engineers, requiring innovative and creative techniques to deliver the best listening experience possible. Using a deep understanding of psychoacoustics — the study of how we perceive sound — along with advanced tuning capabilities, the Bose team designed an offering unlike any other in more than 35 years of engineering sound systems for Corvettes.

    “From the beginning, we knew we had to have an audio system that carefully balanced the need to isolate the occupants from the engine compartment in the rear, while providing live performance-like audio clarity,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer. “The Bose system technology in the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray delivers that careful balance.”

    With 14 precisely placed speakers inside the cabin — the most Bose has ever put into a two-seater — each occupant is surrounded by a diverse mix of high-quality and lightweight loudspeakers.

    Across the instrument panel, 2.5-inch and 3.25-inch neodymium Bose Twiddler speakers help establish a broad and spacious sound stage, along with a combination of 4-inch neodymium wide-range speakers and 1-inch neodymium tweeters in each upper door. A pair of 5.25-inch neodymium wide-range speakers and three additional 3.25-inch neodymium Twiddler speakers in the rear of the cabin deliver rich, immersive sound. Deep, impactful bass performance is provided by 10-inch Bose Nd woofers creatively integrated in each door.

    Discreetly Packaged Bass Performance
    The Bose Nd woofers aren’t visible, but they produce a tremendous amount of low-frequency output, with minimal distortion, by using the architecture of the door itself as a massive bass enclosure. Unlike conventional systems that use a customized bass box with woofers inside, space limitations in the new Corvette made that approach impractical.

    And instead of placing speaker grilles over the woofers, which could be abrasive to the driver’s and passenger’s legs when cornering the vehicle at high speeds, Chevrolet designed a smooth, padded surface for the interior door panel.

    Custom-Tuned Bose AudioPilot Technology
    To preserve the listening experience, even when the new Corvette engine is roaring at full throat, the Bose Performance Series system features a custom-tuned version of AudioPilot noise compensation technology. Using microphones built into the cabin to continuously monitor noise levels and a sophisticated Bose algorithm to analyze and adjust the music signal, AudioPilot technology reduces the effects of external sound. But because of the power and lightning-quick acceleration of the new Corvette Stingray, this application of AudioPilot requires faster processing than ever before.

    Additional Bose innovations in the Performance Series system include Chevrolet’s first application of Advanced Staging Technology to produce an extremely wide sound stage with detailed separation between instruments and vocals. The system also uses Bose Centerpoint stereo-to-surround digital signal processing and Bose SurroundStage technology for balanced, 360-degree sound at each seat. And it’s all processed through a Bose digital amplifier with 16 channels of custom equalization.

    The Bose Performance Series system will be available as an option on the 2020 Corvette Stingray. A 10-speaker Bose Premium surround-sound system will be offered as standard equipment. More details on packaging and trim levels will be announced by Chevrolet closer to the vehicle’s on-sale date.

    This Bose Performance Series Sound System with 14 speakers is RPO UQH while the Bose Premium 10-speaker system is UQS. No weights are given for either system in the ordering guide, unfortunately.
    UQH is included in 2LT/3LT. For pure performance, 1LT may be the way to go, though, to cut down on unnecessary weight. Both Z51 and AE4 Competition Sport bucket seats are still available in the 1LT equipment group.

    I can't wait to demo both systems (i.e. LT2 + Z51 performance exhaust and Bose Performance Series system) in person!!! (Unfortunately, I have to wait until October when the Corvette Tour comes to my area.)

    Bose hasn't yet updated their product page with the C8 system, but more information on the Performance Series can be found here:

      I was finally satisfied with a vette sound system with the C7. Expect this one to be even better. I will go 2LT on the C8.

        I like a good sound system to go along with the car's sound system. Awesome that Bose was able to fit some woofers in there. One of my previous vehicles had a stock Bose system, I was quite pleased with it.

            It just seems that the car keeps getting better and better as certain information is released on the car.

              To be frank, the biggest disappointment I have with my C7 is the Bose system. Mediocre sound, flimsy, cheap-a** speakers with paper cones about a micron thick, and designed with impedance so low that it's all but impossible to replace the speakers with better ones. And the fancy audio settings you can select muddy the sound worse than a 1980s boombox. It's only tolerable because the C7's cabin is noisy enough a really good system would be wasted.

              I really wish GM would get over its fascination with Bose and develop some actual high fidelity components with a company that is more interested in sound QUALITY than playing games with frequency shaping.

                    Very well said. Couldn’t agree more. If I’m using my smart phone as source, with built in EQ, I can almost get it sounding acceptable. Bose has always been a smoke and mirrors company. Ask any audiophile, they will have nothing good to say about Bose. Muddy is a perfect description.

                      So, I love music, and I thought I was a psuedo-audiophile, but I guess not, because I liked my Bose system in the GT-R Maybe I've just never heard a truly good sound system that'll blow my socks off? What's the top auto speaker makers now a days? It's been a loooooooooong time since I ever looked at car audio.

                        The same names in top home audio.....Mark Levinson, Bang and Olufson, Bowers And Wilkins, Harman Kardon.....

                        p.s. I own Bose 901’s and 301’s, they have their uses.....sadly, accurately reproducing music is not one of them.
