Yes. There's supposedly a dedicated speaker on the left rear interior wall.Does the stereo add in fake engine sound like its BMW brethren?
The rear speaker for added engine noise is a mith..Yes. There's supposedly a dedicated speaker on the left rear interior wall.
Not sure I would call it "fake" engine sounds. Synthesized, perhaps, but the sounds are designed to restore sounds from the engine that contribute to driver pleasure but are suppressed by the sound-deadening or otherwise messed up by the dynamics of the structure.
They are just putting back what the structure took away.
I don't have my F56 yet, but I imagine you could cover the outlet of the speaker somehow, and drive it to see what the engine sounds like without the enhancement. . Or next level of hacky-ness, find the wiring to the speaker and disconnect it.Can someone confirm whether the noise is actually a speaker or the engine/exhaust itself? I always thought it was coming from the exhaust or somewhere around there and pretty much drive it in Sports all the time cos of that noise!
