Leading car maker Audi is working to incorporate a new music technology in its cars. The Audi Sound Concept uses a physical principle called “wave field synthesis” to create a uniform listening spot in the entire interior of the car, unlike a traditional stereo in which the quality of the sound received depends on the listener’s position. The company is testing this technology on its Audi Q7 model and has filled it with 62 speakers – five woofers and five tweeters plus 52 mid-range speakers in the instrument panel, the roof pillars and in the doors.
