Default Audi Concept - 62 Speaker Surround Sound!

From Gizmodo:
Quote:
It's the Audi Sound Concept, which sees the car manufacturer's engineers cramming in 52 mid-range speakers, five woofers and five tweeters into one of their small Q7 cars, with speakers hidden in the dashboard, ceiling and doors. Sound like overkill? It probably is—but Audi's used "wave field synthesis," an audio rendering technique which doesn't have many compatible audio tracks that are playable with the audio system, so this is very much a prototype showing The Future, if nothing else.

If the car ever does turn up on a showroom floor, good luck driving it away on holiday—there's no boot to stow your luggage, with most of it being used to hold the amplifier and cables.
Ridiculous. As of now, only 32 tracks can be played with this type of rendering technique. THIRTY. TWO. Out of the bazillions of songs out there, lol.

If this catches on, technology will improve across the board. Packaging dozens of units into a car presents unique challenges.

The system would cost more than the vehicle.
