Focal and Peugeot are continuing their outstanding collaboration with the new Peugeot 508 SPORT ENGINEERED, which features a 515-watt Focal audio system combining power and high-end musical performance. Comfortably seated aboard this hybrid sports car, the purest, most detailed sound you’ve ever heard will unfold around you…
Each collaboration between Focal and Peugeot is the subject of rigorous research into acoustics, digital solutions, design and the adaptation of the audio system to vehicle architecture. To meet these strict specifications, the new PEUGEOT 508 SPORT ENGINEERED is equipped with no less than 10 Focal speakers, all perfectly positioned inside the interior of the vehicle. The user can thus enjoy tailor-made sound, whether they are seated at the front or at the rear of the vehicle.
The most complex thing about creating an audio system for a sports car is finding the best mass/performance ratio. Focal’s exclusive technologies and its expertise in car audio make it possible to meet these requirements, in particular with the installation of four midbass speakers inside the doors of the Peugeot 508 SPORT ENGINEERED. They feature a polyglass cone providing better balance and greater precision.
A fifth polyglass cone speaker is integrated in the center of the dashboard to reproduce vocals. It ensures a precisely positioned and stable soundstage, regardless of the type of musical content.
To reproduce the highs, the French manufacturer has incorporated four tweeters inside the dashboard and the upper frame of the rear doors. These tweeters are aluminum inverted dome models offering optimal sound dispersion and incredibly detailed highs.
To balance everything, the PEUGEOT 508 SPORT ENGINEERED features a 7.87″ subwoofer in its trunk. The latter uses Power Flower triple coil technology to guarantee dynamic and powerful bass. Finally, these different speakers are powered by a 12-channel amplifier capable of delivering up to 515 watts of power. This hybrid model combines the best of class AB amplification with the advantages of class D to provide great richness in the high frequencies, as well as real power in the bass.
The Focal audio system is included as standard in the new Peugeot 508 SPORT ENGINEERED, which starts at €67,100.
