NowCar Bose Speaker System Corvette C8

The Chevrolet C8 Gets the Best Bose Sound System Yet

Written By, Jordan R.

Chevrolet is really working to keep their prime vehicles in tip-top shape, especially with alternative fuel vehicles taking over an ever-increasing part of the auto market. Vehicles like the Chevy Corvette, currently going onto become the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette, are still the kind of cars Chevrolet wants to be known for, next to their trucks. The eight-generation of the Corvette will need some incentive to keep them just as desirable as the rest of the growing lineup. The halo car of the brand, the Stingray Corvette C8 will feature the most powerful audio system to date by Bose speakers.

Way to set a new standard for car stereos everywhere. If this isn’t a way to one-up the rest of the auto market, we don’t know what is. The Bose Performance system in the Stingray Corvette features state-of-the-art signal processing and tuning. Basically, this sound system has been optimized to deliver the loudest yet clearest audio experience on the road.

Adding the Bose Performance Series to the C8 Stingray gives it a little more attitude, and it’s just another way Chevrolet and Bose keep their long-standing partnership alive. Chevrolet and Bose started working together with the fourth-generation Corvette in 1984 for a unique sound that matched the rev of the engine. Bose Chief Audio Engineer Tobe Barksdale called the mix between the sound of the engine and the music from the C8's custom-engineered Bose Performance system will bring a "moving emotion" to the overall atmosphere of the vehicle. Wonder if it has anything to do with car stereos becoming louder when the vehicle is driven faster…

So let’s look at some specs. The new C8 Corvette audio system comes with a dash panel outfitted with several 2.5-inch and 3.25-inch neodymium speakers, plus 4-inch neodymium wide-range speakers and 1-inch neodymium tweeters, all culminating to create a surround sound effect with the rear of the cabin.  In the back, the audio system features 3.25-inch neodymium drivers and 5.25-inch neodymium wide-range speakers, some of which can be found between the passenger seats. These will be protected with a metal cover featuring the iconic Corvette logo. It’s the most sophisticated setup yet – even audio engineers on the Chevy team had to find a way to make it suitable for the Stingray Corvette.

Looking at it from any angle, and the Stingray Corvette is a tight vehicle. Even larger vehicles than this would still require bass boxes to handle the music blasting from this audio system, so how is such a monster stereo system going to keep from deafening the driver? The solution was to place 10-inch Bose Nd woofers in the inner spaces of each car door. Taking advantage of the cabin's low frequencies, bass speakers have been placed behind padded surfaces to protect the driver from the powerful music blasting as they drive down the road.

The detailed modification didn’t stop there. The C8 Corvette also comes with a removable hardtop, and drivers have a tendency to rev up those engines to test the acceleration of the vehicle. It often makes someone wonder how they even enjoy the radio like that. Chevrolet also solved this by adding a digital amplifier with customizable equalization channels to keep the Stingray's cabin filled with high-quality music, even with the top down.

The Corvette C8 still has no official release date, but good news just keeps coming. Keep up with NowCar on social media to learn more about the eight-generation Chevrolet Corvette.
