With everything that Ford has been developing over the past few years and is prepping to release soon (Ford GT, Shelby GT350, Shelby GT500, Bullitt, Bronco, Ranger, etc.), I'm surprised they've got time to blink. ;-)
Well they have a lot more time with no sedans to worry about.

Matt, here is the info Ford has on their site and a link to the page:
Quote:
Sensational B&O PLAY audio

Like Ford Mustang, Bang & Olufsen is an innovator in both iconic design and heart-racing performance across its line of audio products. And now, for the first time, the B&O PLAY audio system comes to Mustang with a stunning 10-channel amplifier producing 1,000 watts across 12 high-performance speakers.

Customized to the carís interior environment, sound engineers tuned the B&O PLAY audio system to take both the static and dynamic states of Mustang into account to elevate the senses regardless of driving conditions. B&O PLAY audio connects to the optional SYNCģ 3 system, which allows Apple CarPlay compatibility.
I really hope they've just made a mistake and left-out a reference to Andriod Auto. Sure would be a shame if they just offered CarPlay as Andriod Auto is, to my understanding, the better app and the only one that isn't a freakin' monopoly (but that's just my opinion). ;-)

https://media.ford.com/content/fordm...siast-upd.html

This info is for the California Special, and I suspect, valid for all other Mustangs that order the B&O Play Audio System, but I've not seen anything indicating the B&O system in the Bullitt is different from any of the other Mustang models. Doesn't mean it is/isn't, just no indication either way.

Thanks for finding that. Looks like it indeed is 1,000 watts. The subwoofer in the trunk looks bigger than the Shaker Pro though. As for Android Auto, they must have just not mentioned it for some reason, because all Sync3 systems come with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability and it's been that way since the 2017 model year.

That's my thinking as well. Again, they're doing quite a bit, quite quickly, so it is understandable if a few things like that get missed.

I've found the 2019 Mustang Owner's manual (will post link later) and while it does have Bullitt specific stuff, it doesn't seem to talk about the B&O system. However, everywhere it mentions CarPlay it also mentions Android Auto, so my feeling is it will be there. Certainly no reason for it not to be.

This press release was probably written by some narrow minded iPhone user who has no clue about the existence of other options.

I agree completely Ericc.

Far too many myopic people in positions of responsibility. Or, it could have been an honest oversight, however, with Android being not just the stronger platform and most ability to grow, but also the one with by far the largest footprint- 56% of US market vs 43% for iPhone and worldwide iPhone has under 15% of the market.

Always amazed at how blind people are to reality and caught in their own world. ;-)

This quote in the link that AC53 provided is a bit odd. I wonder what they exactly are saying here? I hope that it's not piped in exhaust sound.

I don't think there's anything to worry about from that perspective.

What sound engineers do, when they are doing it properly at the higher end, is part science and part black art.

They work with speaker type, size, placement, etc. This is done with the car not running and running, windows up and windows down, just the driver and with passengers, part-throttle and full-throttle, etc., etc.

Most of it is simulated until they get close to finalizing everything and then the art comes into play.

The algorithms that are needed to deal with adjusting 12 speakers dynamically as well as their timing so that the sound is right is extremely complex.

There was a huge to-do a few years back when the Shelby group found that exhaust notes were being piped into their cars.
