What was the wattage for the 2004-2006 Bose systems in the S500?
I don't know the wattage. Bose is usually cryptic about specs. I will tell you that if you let it, it may change how you listen to music.What was the wattage for the 2004-2006 Bose systems in the S500?
A few months ago I traded my S500 for a very nice 2010 CLS 550. I disliked three things immediately:https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:9vCKRNM4PLEJ:www.bose.no/NO/no/Images/Mercedes-Benz%20S-Class%20(W220)_EN_tcm93-3030.pdf+w220+bose+sound+watt&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESiojUZ8-9Tl0Pwdr6JuTDyQlmuvdXUpU-RIxBJyNr6j17G8j5Sww30mK-g6MI--0LezvD5k4N2SbCrDfFoXiTbcoTpZx0jbuXG8Izwbhs-mg1X6Rbhvsbcslbbv94baI0_14Os3&sig=AHIEtbQSbizphGY8yC92q16CQP8HAs_hBQ&pli=1
I couldn't find rsm watt spec, but I found a lot of dislikes about the stock s class system, some people say their other mercedes models have a better sounding systems than the 'premium' w220
The DVD audio is probably the most underutilized feature, which is too bad, because it shows the system in its best light.If you really want to experience some amazing dynamic range get your hands on a DVD-A (DVD audio) disk Yes it plays them natively and it will blow you away sonically with 5.1 channels of uncompressed audio stream.
Surround does have a tendency to "thin" the sound out. First, it splits up the available signal into a main front soundstage using the front components and the sub as mains, and the rear components in the doors get fed an out of phase and slightly delayed surround signal. They combine optimally at the front seats, where the rears provide a sense of greater ambience. Because woofers in the doors aren't getting a full range bass signal, the overall feel of the bass is diminished."Rear Optimized" is what I meant. BEST setting!!
For some reason, one would think that the rear optimized would be better if one was sitting in the back, but for some reason it sounded so much better for the driver. It gave it a full sound, yet with a touch of surround kicked in, without that "thin" feel.
On front optimized, it seemed to have all the sound up front and I could tell exactly where the sound was coming from, ie right door speaker.
Rear optimized just gave it a fuller and spacious sound. Let us know how you liked it with a good cd!!
This one does the trick:http://esd.element5.com/demoreg.html?id=9622656&k=ed1709a0&l=1. Free to try (limits the number of tracks), $39 to buy, worth every penny.Now to see what a DVD-A disc will sound like in the car!!!! Any luck with some of those programs online that converts a normal CD to a DVD-A?
I haven't used DVD-A discs, but I do occasionally slip in a music DVD (the Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels Tour is my favorite) and you're right - the sound from that is awesome.The DVD audio is probably the most underutilized feature, which is too bad, because it shows the system in its best light.
Haven't heard that one yet. So far, the best sounding I've heard has been The Nightfly Trilogy. It should be the factory demo disc set for the Benz Bose 5.1 SurroundI haven't used DVD-A discs, but I do occasionally slip in a music DVD (the Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels Tour is my favorite) and you're right - the sound from that is awesome.
