A total of 14 speakers for “a special kind of experience.”
Chevrolet’s all-new eighth-generation Corvette is a true revolution for the brand. It’s the first-ever Corvette with a mid-engine layout in history and features clever engine and transmission solutions to become one of the quickest accelerating cars on the market today, even in its base form. It’s not just fast and good-looking though, it’s also futuristic inside the cabin and people seem to love that. In addition, the new Corvette C8 also comes with Bose’s most powerful and highest performing sound system for a sports car.

The so-called Bose Performance Series consists of a total of 14 speakers (the most Bose has ever installed in a two-seater), which should deliver “the loudest — yet clearest” audio experience ever in a two-seat coupe cabin. The audio specialists explain the shift from a front-engine layout to mid-engine design has changed the size and shape of the cabin, which has been a big challenge for the Bose engineers. After a long development process, requiring an “innovative and creative” approach, the company has designed a system that’s unlike anything other in the Corvette’s entire history.
“From the beginning, we knew we had to have an audio system that carefully balanced the need to isolate the occupants from the engine compartment in the rear, while providing live performance-like audio clarity,” Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer, explains the system. “The Bose system technology in the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray delivers that careful balance.”
Bose’s Performance Series system for the new ‘Vette includes 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch speakers across the instrument panel, 4-inch wide-range speakers and 1-inch tweeters in each upper door panel, and a pair of 5.25-inch wide-range speakers and three additional 3.25-inch Twiddler speakers in the rear of the cabin. A 10-inch Bose Nd woofer is integrated into each door.
Bose has been the official audio partner of Chevrolet since the fourth-generation of the Corvette, which debuted in 1984.
