This is also what makes a sound system premium, in Lahti’s opinion: optimised frequency extension, deeper bass, brighter treble, and loudness without harshness. All done in as efficient a way as possible.
Efficiency, when dealing with sound systems, is directly related to sustainability and environmental friendliness. Lighter speakers which use less material, have greater output, and use less battery power are more efficient and more ecological, with the additional advantage of reducing the vehicle’s overall weight.
Those listening to music inside of a car are, in a physical sense, a captive audience. When the music is coming through a system as meticulously planned, designed, installed and tuned as Polestar 2’s, captivity isn’t so bad. Even for Lahti, who spends most of his professional life as a captive listener.
“I tell my friends that my job is to listen to good music in luxury cars,” says Lahti. “What’s not to love?”
